Jess & Tony // Dapper Wedding at The German Society of Pennsylvania

These two really give us all the heart-eyes! Their Philly wedding perfectly represented all the best parts of their love and personalities. If anyone else is getting married in a historic library, please hire us immediately!
Jess had their suit custom made from one of our faves Bindle & Keep, and then changed into the most perfect jumpsuit to dance away the evening. Tony is one of the sweetest people, and the love these two share just radiated through the entire wedding day. Shawnee had so much fun just hanging out with Jess & Tony and their guests, Philly weddings are some of our faves!

Kathleen & Kelsey // Colorful Queer Carnival Wedding

Kathleen & Kelsey truly went all out, and threw a celebration that just may be impossible to ever forget. They pulled out all the stops for their carnival themed wedding, including a carousel, a bounce house, popcorn & cotton candy, lawn games, and animal themed place settings.
These two have been together for quite some time, with a long engagement, and a promise to not high-five each other (which is totally their thing!) from the start of their engagement until their wedding day almost 3 years later. Kathleen & Kelsey were surrounded by their favorite people, and such a loving community of family and friends. It was a gorgeous day, and I'm so happy to have been a part of it!

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.
