HEY! This coming year we’re going to dive into some more boudoir sessions and in order to start our separate website, we wanna start shooting boudoir the way we shoot weddings and sessions. Honest & moment based. The reason you’re getting this email is because we’re looking for ladies who are interested in having some boudoir photos taken. FO FREE! The catch is we need to be able to use the photos online for the website. Obviously tasteful non-nude ones. We only need about five web useable images, so the rest can be kept private for whoever you want to give them to. We’ll run the ones past you that will be going online, so we’ll let you know! The sessions usually can take place at your house or if you want to rent a hotel room at a preapproved hotel (since they have certain vibes!) that’s okay too. If you’re interested, submit your info below!
XOXO

Prize has zero cash value, must meet at 1:45 in front of the ulysses room to claim prize from Sarah Williams.

We try to write something for all our blog posts, but sometimes the pictures just speak for themselves. That’s pretty true for Scotty & Andy. They’re super awesome people who knew exactly how we shoot and trusted us at every corner of their extremely laid back day at their family’s historical house in Richmond. Cheap beer, tattoos, cigars from CVS and a late night s’mores fire couldn’t have been more perfect for their day.

There’s things you never thought you’d do in your life. When I first started photography, birth photography didn’t even cross my mind. Once I got into shooting and the way we shoot, birth photography seemed like the perfect avenue. Unfortunately since we shoot weddings, it’s hard to schedule shooting births as well. When Sarah, who happens to be a spectacular wedding and birth photographer, approached me asking to shoot her birth I was blown away. Well, three weeks late, Mr. Wystan decided to make his appearance. After 30 of the most composed hours of labor i’m sure anyone has ever gone through, he joined our universe. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. And yes, I bawled like a baby. He’s also fricking adorable.

We usually don’t shoot weddings in Virginia Beach anymore, and the one’s we had there this year kicked ass. It was no different when we shot Mike & Courtney’s wedding, considering they currently live in New York, so they brought some awesome NY vibe with them and their guests. It was a perfect day, with the most perfect cotton candy sunset and a night full of perfect dance moves!
