Nicole & Josh, Married – Sandbridge, VA

I met Nicole and Josh via a referral from another photographer. I was on my way to visit Virginia Beach with my husband and a friend from Germany and just managed to schedule a client meeting with this lovely couple. It’s even more amazing since they’re also not local to Virginia Beach! We met at a local Panera and immediately, we clicked. It doesn’t make when you find out you share a mutual love for animals….specifically dogs!

Nicole and Josh have a passion for puppies just like me! They have two sweet pups – kindred souls I tell ya! They raise bees – yep, they’re beekeepers! In general, they’re patient, kind, and understanding people.

Nicole and Josh were married on Saturday, October 17. It was a gorgeous day for a wedding! Cool enough to need to snuggle up to her new husband, but warm enough for Nicole to be stunning in a gorgeous dress. Instead of flowers, Nicole made her own bouquets – complete with shells and fresh lavender! They smelled amazing!! This backyard beach wedding was so much fun and I’m so honored to have been a part of it!

Congratulations to Nicole and Josh! Warm wishes for a long and blessed marriage!

The best week of 2015

Let me preface this by saying, last week was the BEST WEEK OF 2015!

I made a commitment to myself and my passion for photography and invested in myself last week. I spent the evening of June 7 and all day June 8 and 9 attending Amy and Jordan’s workshop right here in Richmond. It was the best investment in a workshop I could have made this year. I am certain you want to know what made it so awesome…I will provide details and information from my perspective once I’ve had enough time to digest it all.

For now, let me just tell you that I walked away from it knowing that I can be successful and take my business anywhere so long as I follow my heart and always love & serve others first. One of the biggest “tools” that stuck with me through it all was how warm and welcoming Amy and Jordan are both in their online presence and even more so in their face to face presence.

I took their workshop because I fell in love with them. I left their workshop loving them as people and truly inspiring professionals.

I can’t wait to see where their gift of education and sharing leads me :-) For now, I’ll work on my promise to improve my ability to love & serve others.

2nd Shooting – Kristine Pringle Photography – Celebrations at the Reservoir – Pool Pavilion

I am so honored and lucky that wedding season has me working regularly with two fabulous photographers. If you’ve been keeping up, you know this is my 2nd wedding with the sweet and fun Kristine of Kristine Pringle Photography.

This time, I had the pleasure of working with her at Celebrations on the Reservoir – Pool Pavilion. This venue is incredible – they have many different event sites so more than one event can be taking place at the same time and you’d never know. The Pool Pavilion is an older house that has been converted to host events and yes, it really does have a pool!

This wedding was gorgeous! There was a candy bar, pasta bar, AND an ice cream bar! Hello yummy goodness! The bride chose blue and purple. They were amazing when combined – especially her bouquet! Stunningly gorgeous!

The ceremony was on the dock overlooking the reservoir while the dancing took place pool side! If you’re looking for a venue that has water, more water, and character, then the Pool Pavilion is worth a look around :-)

It was so awesome working with Kristine again! She really is a bright light and someone I’m so glad I’ve been able to work with! Enjoy my favorite photos from this wedding and be on the look out for a recap from fun filled weekend. (OH! And, I am so excited – I will be attending the Amy and Jordan workshop starting today so stay tuned for a blog post on that!)Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0001 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0002 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0003 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0004 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0005 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0006 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0007 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0008 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0009 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0010 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0011 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0012 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0013 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0014 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0015 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0016 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0017 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0018 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0019 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0020 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0021 Forstner Photography - Chesterfield, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia Photographer - Celebrations at the Reservoir - Pool Pavilion_0022
