Erika + Josh | Sweetheart Session Downtown Richmond, Virginia

Couple Sessions

Every time I get the opportunity to do photos of Erika and Josh, they end up being my FAVORITE shoots!! I had the opportunity to shoot them TWICE in the last week, so this blog post is going to be full of LOTS of pictures and I’m way too excited about it! At the beginning of the week, they modeling for my one-on-one mentoring session with Janet (learn more about mentoring HERE!) as I taught her all about lighting, posing, client interaction, location scouting + getting light perfect in -camera. We shot all around downtown Fredericksburg + the light was absolutely amazing! The weather last week was PERFECT for shooting + I’m so glad that I was able to take advantage of it!

Then, on Friday we headed down to Richmond to exchange Christmas card photos. Not only did we get more incredible shots of Erika + Josh, but we turned it into such a fun afternoon exploring + grabbing dinner at a cute spot downtown with some seer friends! My photos (and photos of Drew + I!!) will be up on the blog later this week (AH!) But, for now, enjoy ALL of my favorites from BOTH of Erika + Josh’s shoots last week!!


END of shoot one in Fredericksburg!!! Just three days later was when we headed down to Richmond and I LOVE all of these just as much!!! So much pretty!
