Carli + Mason

2013-11-24_0033Carli and Maxon are just too cute together!! They are high school sweethearts — they met shortly before freshman year through mutual friends during a poker match. Mason said “It was love at first sight!”. They dated all through high school and college. Not too long ago, Mason popped the question at her family’s river house and Carli was totally surprised!! He coordinated to have her entire family there to celebrate afterwards.

They both grew up in Richmond so I thought the perfect Richmond spot should be along the James River. There is just something romantic about it a flowing river!! The location was amazing! The light was spilling through the trees and these two were glowing with happiness.


When Mason would look at Carli it was as if his whole soul was pouring out with love. I was SO very sweet to capture their love!!Β Their dog Marley came along for some pictures too! She wanted to jump in that water SO bad πŸ™‚

Carli was a little nervous about what to expect for our shoot but once my camera starting snapping away she warmed right up! To the point that the pictures of them smooching in the alleyway towards the end of the shoot was her idea! I love when my clients have a sense on comfort with me and can just relax and have fun with their session. That’s how you get the most genuine, natural photographs. Their BIG day is in March… right around the corner!!! πŸ™‚


SO precious!!
Definitely a favorite!!
Love the light in this one!
I always keep my camera out and ready… it’s the in between shots that are so sweet πŸ™‚
Aren’t they a gorgeous couple?!
They nailed the model face shot!
LOVE this!
Another favorite! Are the noticing a trend here?
Carli, you are GORGEOUS!!

LOVE this!

YES… another favorite!!

    You have grown up to be a beautiful and success young lady! Oh, how I remember those babysitting days for our girls! Especially sliding down the stairs! Sarah and Rachel loved when you were babysitting!
    Your business seems to be taking off wonderfully! Ironically enough, I happen to know Carli from the recent engagement pictures. Her Mom, Robin, was the secretary at St. Mary’s School when we moved to Richmond in 1998. Carli’s sister, Blair, was in Sarah’s class and her buddy for many years after Kindergarten!!
    We are now in Raleigh, NC, but I will most definitely refer anyone needing photography work to you!
    Please give our best to your Mom and Dad!
