We are so excited to share with you all that we are expecting our baby this winter. We feel so blessed to be able to have this baby after experiencing a deep loss in April with our first child. We have experienced so much grief this summer as we navigated through the loss of our baby in April as well as our kitten Fig, and finding out the joyous news on Father's Day. Walking through a season of grief and joy can make you feel kind of all over the place. I am so thankful to have a partner that has been by my side through it all.
We cannot wait to meet our rainbow baby this winter!

I dont know where to begin! This wedding was a joy to be apart of. Lucy and Sam exude so much joy. From the moment we met them at the Urban Farmhouse, I knew these two were our kind of people. You can see how much they love each other by the way they look at each other. Lucy and Sam have known each other since they were kids. Literally, children. I think they met around the age of eight and even were boyfriend & girlfriend in middle school. Lucy knew at a young age that she and Sam were going to marry one day.
Their ceremony was so special. They had so many personal touches and there was not a dry eye in the house. As they said their vows, the sun glistened across the James River behind them.
We were blown away by the Upper Shirley. This was our first time at the venue and we hope we are lucky enough to go back. It was such a stunning venue to capture and to celebrate Lucy & Sam's love. (the food is really really good by the way... and their late night snacks are even better!)

The first day of June, we captured Christina and Ben's wedding. We had been looking forward to capturing their day, not only because they are amazing people, but Christina + Ben are wedding photographers.
Nothing is more fun for photographers to capture other photographers. It is rare for most photographers to take the time to get their own photos taken. We are too busy capturing other peoples moments that sometimes we don't slow down to capture our own. It was really special for us to capture their day, their love, and the people that came to celebrate them.
congrats again! - chelsea

Two weeks ago a heat wave hit most of the country. I was honestly nervous to shoot a family session with the heat index of 115 degrees. But, this sweet family braved the weather, and brought tons of water to stay hydrated. I am so glad we stuck it out because the images we were able to capture were just beautiful.
