We are Michael & Laura, a husband and wife photography team based in Richmond, Virginia (though we LOVE to travel!). We hope you enjoy browsing some of our most recent work, reading our tips and tricks for brides, and taking a little peek into our life.
We met Elizabeth in Richmond’s Hollywood Cemetery for her bridal session. We knew she was our kinda bride when she showed up in her leggings and threw on her huge skirt of her wedding dress in the parking lot over those leggings. We love that our couples remind us so much of ourselves.. laid back, easy […]
Today, instead of keeping you here on our blog, we are redirecting you to Tidewater and Tulle, an amazing online publication that has all things wedding and all thing Hampton Roads at your disposal. You see… We planned our very first styled shoot without a hitch. We had a dream team of vendors sign on to […]
Samantha is one of the most gorgeous brides ever.. but she is also one of the most sweet, loving, and joyful brides ever. So when she emailed asking about a bridal shoot, we were over the moon. We always love being able to have a little extra time with our couples before the wedding day. That’s one of the reasons we love engagement sessions so much! But bridal sessions are incredible! We get more time with our bride, AND it alleviates some of the time crunch on the wedding day, which is always a good thing! We decided to meet part way between Richmond and Hampton Roads at their incredible wedding venue, Apple Blossom Plantation in Providence Forge.
Carol & Eric’s wedding day was very different from wedding days we are used to. We usually arrive 1-2 hours before the dress goes on. We have a chance to meet everyone, talk with everyone, and shoot a crazy amount of details before all the excitement begins. In this case, we arrived and almost immediately […]
Taking bridal portraits is so hard. Well, I LOVE the actual taking of the bridal portraits.. it’s AMAZING to have 1-2 hours to get every image you want in a relaxed and stress-free setting (AND makes the wedding day run smoother – I love it), but it’s SO hard to keep them without sharing any until after the wedding day!!! I am so excited to share these from Amanda’s bridal session, and now I can’t wait ’til I get to share all the ones from her amazing wedding this past weekend.
