 Tredegar Engagement Photo
For Kali & Jesse’s Richmond engagement session we ventured down to some of Richmond’s finest – Belle Isle and The Tredegar. These proud Richmonder’s are in love with their city and rightfully so! This city is one of a kind and gorgeous! If you are new to Richmond these are amazing site seeing spots – – So much history and beauty!!  Did you know that the Tredegar was one of the main factories that produced iron and artillery weapons during the Civil War? Anywhere you walk downtown it feels like you are walking into history. Of course Belle Isle is one of my favs and thats where we ended our session- with a gorgeous sunset over looking the River City.
These two met December 2011 through her best friend (of 18 years) watching football with friends. Little did she know it was a set up. Don’t you love those things?? Turns out- it was a set up that would last a life time. These two hit it off and were inseperable. Fast forward a little later and Jesse told Kali that her Christmas present was to go to Vegas (I want one of those presents!!).  Jesee surprised her with a trip to Sedona where he got down on one knee at Cathedral Rock. The next day these two finished out their beautiful trip by checking out the Grand Canyon. Ummm…. go Jesse!?? You nailed it buddy!!

I see the beauty in imperfect things. As a Christ-follower, faith is central to my life, work, and connections. I am fueled by joy, known for my bubbly and sunny disposition, and always with a warm hug. Imperfect beauty inspires my love for all things vintage, abstract art, and real love stories. I love moments full of grit and emotion; life off the beaten path; stunning views along the shore; and the juxtaposition of New York grunge and laid back Cali-vibe. 

As a mother of two, I am very familiar with how quickly life’s most important moments fly by too quickly. I will calmly and seamlessly guide you through frames that will endure. I strive to capture your memories with one-of-a-kind images full of meaning. I cannot wait to connect with you! 

I bring all of these elements to my time with my couples. With over a decade of experience in the industry, I know how to gently guide you through poses that are natural and beautiful. The transition into this sentence doesn’t make sense. Throughout your day, you will feel the love from those there to celebrate
 you two. 
When I’m not photographing weddings, I enjoy long walks in the neighborhood with my husband, my kiddos Tuxie and Sunny, and my labradoodle Hokie.. Also, I am a huge dog-lover! I’m pretty sure heaven is full of dogs. I can’t wait to connect with you, and yes, your pup is always welcome here!
