Amanda & Ernesto // Tilghman Island Maryland Wedding

Amanda and Ernesto's wedding weekend was incredible. These two are so down to earth, kind-hearted, and absolutely head over heals for each other. Their celebration was held at the Black Walnut Point Inn on Tilghman Island, Maryland. The evening before their wedding they hosted a crab feast style rehearsal dinner for their friends and family from all over the world to meet and get to know each other. The following day was filled with many congratulations, hugs and laughter, a downpour before the I do's, a gorgeous sunset, and some of the best dancing faces I've ever seen. Amanda & Ernesto compliment each other so well, and I'm so very thankful that I had the opportunity to be apart of such a heartfelt celebration.

MC & Jonathan // The Best of Richmond - Portrait Session

While working on MC & Jonathan's portraits, I couldn't stop smiling. My cheeks and face hurt by the time I was done. These two are so incredibly in love, and happy together, and it truly shows. They found out just a few days before our session that they would be selling their house and moving to Texas, leaving this city that they love so dearly behind. Jonathan is now in Texas, while MC settles up everything here. I hope these pictures bring smiles to their faces, and help them feel closer and connected, until they can physically be together again. 

This past weekend had left me an utter mess, with a vast sense of hopelessness. Sitting at my desk, trying to focus on work, and not look at my phone to get the latest update on the Orlando attack was nearly impossible. These portraits helped to get me through that, and reminded me that THIS is why I'm a photographer. Being there for the queer community, my community, and helping to create memories that will be cherished by couples and their families for years to come is incredibly humbling, important, and fills my heart with joy.

Rhiannon & Tom // NY Elopement

An Australian girl meets a Jersey boy, and the result is a serendipitous love that spans time and continents. Rhiannon and Tom tied the knot in a celebration that was completely authentic to themselves, and absolutely full of laughter. Thank goodness for the power of the internet gods that sent these two my way!
