Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Had the opportunity to work with a lot of young ladies for the Valentine's day themed shoots.  A lot of these definitely flexed the creative muscles!  I'm happy with the results...hope you like them, too!

Suspenders...in B&W

Gave this style a try and really pleased with the outcome...especially in B&W!  Have a handful of different color suspenders to try multiple different looks.  Hoping to expand on this series soon!  Enjoy!

Night Photography

Had the pleasure of shooting Kami at night; my time trying such a shoot.  I love the images we made and definitely want to do another one!  Interested in giving it a shot?  Contact me and let's set it up!

Showing Out!

Anya and Tim put on a show during our last shoot. This is one talented couple. I look forward to shooting with them again the future! 




Charlottesville Rally

Wow.  I'm at a loss for words at the amount of ignorance I saw today in Charlottesville.  Definitely doesn't seem like something we should experience in 2017!  But it's all about heritage, not hate, right?  Riiiiiiiiight.......  

Sunset Shoot

Went out and did a sunset shoot with Anya!  We got a lot of different looks in a short timeframe.  Talk about easy to work with!  Went natural light this time; haven't done a natural light shoot in quite a while..definitely need to do more.  Enjoy the photos!

Street Empire Fashion Shoot

Had the opportunity to work with Street Empire for the their distressed clothing line.  I really enjoyed working with this group of enterprising people...talk about drive!  Looking forward to working with them again in the future.  Enjoy the photos!  Like what you see?  Leave a comment!

Classical Music Concert

This year I've had the opportunity to photograph numerous concerts for Chamber Music Society of Central VA.  Given the state of "music" today, it's always good to hear great instrumentation from the group!  Definitely recommend checking them out at their next show!

Cosplay Shoot...1st timer!

Talk about an "interesting" shoot!  This weekend I had an opportunity to shoot a Cosplay group based in Richmond, VA.  It was very different, but I enjoy the passion the cosplayers brought to the event, the skill they used to create their costumes, and their dedication to stay in character.  This was a first for me...and may not be a last!  Enjoy!

Shooting with Teauna

Talk about an awesome and versatile model!  Teauna brought her A game!  We were able to pull out three different looks in a short time span.  Hope you like them as much as I do!

Forever Thine Wedding Workflow Review

So I've had the opportunity to work with the Forever Thine Wedding Workflow by Sleeklens.  It's a collection of Lightroom presets and brushes to help give unique looks (and dramatically speed up the editing process) of your photos.   How do I describe this?  One word....WOW!!!!  

I really wish I had these a lot earlier!  I went back and re-edited two wedding photos using these presets and brushes.  Here are the unedited photos:


Not too bad...but they definitely need some life!  I used the "Green Mile" film preset in the photo on the left, and some skin softening.  On the photo on the right, I used the "Bridesmaid" preset as well as skin softening, added some additional sunflare, and corrected some underexposure issues.  Using Lightroom on the Forever Thine workflow, the following photos are results:


I'm definitely satisfied with the results!  If you want to learn about about this workflow, visit Sleeklens at:

Fashion Show Photography

Last Sunday I photographed the All Live Matter charity fashion show in Richmond.  First show for the organizer, and 2nd time shooting a show for me.  I had a great time and...as always...learned a lot.  Looking forward to working with Street Empire again!

National Museum of African American History and Culture Opening!

What a great opportunity to be in DC for the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture!  Couldn't miss celebrating this historic occasion.  You know what'll be better?  Actually be able to get IN the museum one of these days!  Until then, I'll be satisfied spending the day in a sea of melanin...it was awesome.



Monster Jam!

This weekend my son and I went to Monster Jam. WOW! That's all I can say!  We had a great time seeing the various trucks do their stunts.  It was a first time for both us, but likely won't be the last!  A few photos are below.
