Shatara & Ryan | Backyard Engagement | Richmond, Virginia

One of the things that I hear from my couples are that the men do NOT want to take pictures. BUT all my HMGrooms have one thing in common, they would do ANYTHING for their ladies. Who doesn’t love that?

Shatara & Ryan are FUN..that’s the only true word I have for it. These police officer’s love is so special and unique. I loved being able to visit their home in the early morning and capture their relationship. Shatara laughs…A LOT! I never had to tell her once to fake it or think of something funny. She was laughing the entire time…mostly at Ryan! He knows how to make her laugh. I loved their sarcasm and down to earth nature. Seriously, I could talk to this couple for hours. I’m pretty sure I did!! I also ended up leaving with EGGS from their chickens out back. Talk about fun surprise. Ben was so confused when I came home with a HUGE carton of eggs. He just laughed.

Shatara & Ryan, I can’t tell you how blessed I feel to be your wedding photographer. You are exactly the type of couple that makes my job SO fun and wonderful. I can’t wait to capture your special day <3
