  • Melissa! How am I just running across your site, being a fellow VA gal :) Your work is gorgeous, lots of talent & passion there! Your ringshots are amazing too – are they with the help of a dreamy 100 macro by any chance?

  • Hi Sarah! Yes they were shot with the original 100mm macro, I will be honest though I usually have to shoot 20+ and I’ll have at least 1 or 2 that are crisp. I tend to sway when I shoot and that is not so great with macro ;) I should try a tripod but I hate carrying extra gear :)

We were driving to Charleston when I checked my email and saw her message that she was getting married!!  I recognized her last name from photographing her brother’s wedding several years ago and I immediately remembered a photo I snapped of her on the dance floor having a blast with her sister!  There was something […]

    Well, it has been a pleasure getting to know you Jeff. I must say Ashley chose wisely… as did you! The pictures are beautiful and I am so looking forward to the day before June Tenth!

    On a side note Dina, you looked beautiful on your wedding day.! I wish I could have made it. My best to you and Bill… ( another inside joke). Luckily ” Grandma” does not have a computer!

Client meetings always make me nervous, I’m not a great salesperson and I tend to talk to much and too fast.  Meeting Jill and Paul though was a breeze!  They love the outdoors and like to do a lot of the same things David and I do.  Oh and they have a boat!  As soon […]
