I’ve known Bianca for 3 years and when we first met, I knew we would get along because she was sassy and straight forward, just like me! She would always tell me I would shoot her wedding one day and now here we are! Bianca and her fiancé Joey are so much fun and knowing she loves donuts as much as I do, we came up with the plan to start their engagement session at Sugar Shack. Her Kate Spade pink sprinkles donut shirt was oh so perfect and we had a blast, setting the tone for the rest of the shoot. We then headed to historic Monument Avenue and took some photos outside at the Branch Museum where fall was in full swing, the leaves and beautiful architecture offered a classic backdrop for this adorable couple! We then walked down the street to a particular house I’ve always wanted to photograph, which has become quite infamous amongst fellow photographers, because it looks like it belongs in Europe, its absolutely breathtaking! We ended the session with the sunset at the VMFA, the place was so crowded because it was such a gorgeous night, but we managed to get some great locations at the top of the stairs, on the roof deck, next to the museum. Joey and Bianca were such a great couple, down to do anything and not afraid to be goofy! Not to mention, they are a great looking couple and so in love. I am beyond thrilled to be capturing their wedding photos next fall at the Tuckahoe Plantation, I can’t wait!!
