Kathleen + Sherri | Stoney Creek Farm | Boonsboro, Maryland

What I do is pretty special, I mean not only do I get to go to parties all the time but I also get to document events in people’s lives that are so important. Kathleen and Sherri had a very intimate, classic winter wedding at the Stoney Brook Farm in Boonsboro, Maryland earlier this month. While they could have gone crazy with the holiday theme they used it just enough to have that festive feeling while still being their wedding. Christy with Red Carpet Events, and an old friend of theirs helped put this wedding together.

We started the day with the ladies getting their hair and makeup done, something Kathleen wasn’t so accustomed to so made for some great photos and conversation. While they got dressed it started to snow big beautiful snowflakes around the farmhouse so we stepped out in the winter wonderland for a few portraits. After a simple, yet very moving, ceremony we ate a delicious dinner followed by an emotional father/daughters dance. All the best to you Kathleen and Sherri!

Kristen + Craig | The Renaissance | Richmond, VA

I love when old friends contact me about shooting their upcoming wedding! That’s what happened when an old college friend Craig messaged me about shooting his wedding! Of course! These two had a very classic Richmond wedding at the The Renaissance on Broad Street. I’ve always wanted to do a true downtown Richmond wedding!

We started the day taking pictures of Kristen and Craig getting ready. They wanted to do a fun before the ceremony picture where they were on either side of a door without actually seeing one another. It was a really great moment before the big moments to follow. We had a blast shooting all their portraits outside in the city streets of Richmond before partying all night long! Best of luck you two!

Sarah + Joe | Ashlawn Highlands | Charlottesville, VA

Sarah and Joe had such a beautiful wedding at the Ashlawn Highlands in Charlottesville, VA. I can’t believe that this was my first Charlottesville wedding as there are so many amazing venues there and Ashlawn did not disappoint!

One of the best moments of the day was when Sarah discoverd her gift from Joe, a table made from pieces of wood from Hollywood Cemetery and train track ties. A truly unique and classic thing to have in their home. Sarah’s gift to Joe was also great because it was a daguerreotype she made of herself! So cool! After a lovely ceremony there was a super fun dance party with a donut truck too! Best of luck to these two!

Tess + Dan + Baby Morella! | Church Hill Family | Richmond, Virginia Family Photography |

 

I haven’t been back to Richmond since last December and boy have some of my friends there been busy! Meet Tess and Dan with their new little lady Morella. I had the pleasure of not only seeing their beautiful home for the first time but also meeting their beautiful little girl. Tess and Dan are some of the realest parents I think you’ll meet and watching them interact with Morella was amazing because you can see their own amazement with her every move. Thanks so much for letting me spend time with your family on a Sunday afternoon, I hope to see you again soon!

Suzanne + Jeff || Wedding | DoubleTree by Hilton Tarrytown, New York

Suzanne and Jeff were married in August at the DoubleTree in Tarrytown, New York and it was a ton of fun! These two have such great energetic personalities and it truly came across on their marriage day. When were driving home from the wedding we talked about all the details of the day, from her bridesmaids Ted Baker dress to the boys in their yellow bowties. Tim, Dorothy and I had a wonderful time and thanks for the party dudes!

Larry And His Flask | Band Photography in Brooklyn, New York

 

One thing Talia was looking for in these images of Larry And His Flask was to show the band without all the instruments and usual stylized look that they’ve had in previous photoshoots. I think we got what they were looking. It’s funny when photographing larger groups of people and especially bands I just sort of think about them as a larger engagement session.

I shot these all around Greenpoint which is awesome because I’ve been wanting to do more work in the neighborhood. I really wanted to capture a “classic” band photograph, similar to what you might of seen in the 70’s. The first black and white image is exactly what I wanted. The last image is a total homage to Jeff Newsom, if you are unfamiliar with his work certainly give it a look!

Larry And His Flask at The Knitting Factory Brooklyn

 

Sometimes Talia will ask me to photograph her bands when they roll through town. This time she asked me to do some live music shooting of Larry And His Flask. I saw this band a few years ago at Cous Cous in Richmond, VA and while I remember the high energy from that show this show was even crazier. Live music isn’t something I photograph really ever so it was fun to challenge myself a bit and just shoot something else for a change! Enjoy!

Lauren, Chris + Jude | Williamsburg, Virginia Family Session

I met Lauren and Chris last year at Lauren and Phil’s wedding in Virginia. She messaged me a few months ago asking about some family portraits next time I was in Richmond, which hasn’t been since Christmas actually! This past weekend I was in Virginia Beach for my little sister’s high school graduation (geeze I’m old) and they agreed to meet me in Williamsburg. It was a nice bright day in Colonial Williamsburg but I think we managed to avoid some of the cheesiness that could have happened during our shoot, no tri corner hats here!

Also how cute is Jude? He just smiled the whole time. Best little dude.
