Hi there! I'm Caiti and I am a wedding & portrait photographer living in Prince George, Virginia. I am a music loving, doughtnut eating, coffee drinking, mama of 2. This is the place where you can come to see my latest work with my beautiful clients and learn more about me, my husband, and our sweet babies. Take a look around and enjoy!
Most of the time you may hear people say something along the lines of “their love is like a fairytale”. In the case of Gigi & Mickey, I find that very true but I ALSO believe that their love it something out of a musical! The entire day felt like a real life musical […]
Sometimes, as a business owner…especially a rather new one..I feel like I have to say “yes” to everything. In some ways, I want to because I want to soak everything up! I want to be a part of every opportunity or take as many pictures as I possibly can. Or even help other new photographers whenever they ask! This is not always the right decision, though, so I am learning to say “no”, as gently as possible!
I think that this concept applies to everyone, just as a human being. We have to learn that “no” is not a bad word! Saying “yes” to every situation or opportunity can lead to great new things, or it can lead to exhaustion and potential hurt your business & clients.
There is not a more fitting week for this wedding to have taken place than the week of Independence Day. Evan & Sydney had a beautiful wedding at Evan’s family’s home church, we took pictures at a local plantation home, then celebrated for the rest of the evening at the Lee Club on Fort Lee. We had only ever met Sydney & Evan through a FaceTime call, back in the winter, but we had never met in person due to them living in other states. They are the type of people that make you instantly feel like you are friends with them! Their friends are the same way, so the entire day was so much fun!
I have been so excited to share this wedding with all of you!! This past weekend was the first time we have ever done a double header and I would be lying if I said we weren’t a little nervous. The day after a wedding is rough for photographers (photogs, you know what I mean!) […]
We spent Saturday celebrating Zach & Elizabeth! It was a perfect day! The girls spent the morning hanging out, getting fancy, and listening to country music. The guys spent the morning relaxing, played a little golf, and some even took a swim in the pool (can we just agree that men have it easier on wedding days?). The calm and chill vibe of the morning is exactly how I see Zach and Elizabeth. When they are together, they seem so at ease and comfortable, yet laughing & joking with each other the whole time.
Let me just be honest…these two are amazing!! Shawn & Stacy are the type of couple that you know are meant to be together the moment you meet them. They just work perfectly. They are just SO natural. From the way he looks at her, to the way she speaks to him, to the way they just fit together effortlessly. They also have this way about them that makes you want to be friends with them! Then, to top it off, they are one good looking couple! Basically, I was squealing the entire way through their engagement session out at Upper Shirley Vineyard!
When I started photography, it was solely because I wanted to take pictures of my daughter. I wanted to document things about her life. Then, I wanted to be able to offer my friends and family decent pictures of their own families! I say decent because my photography skills when I started out were “struggling” big time. I still love to document memories for my family & friends…that will never change! So a couple weeks ago, I did family pictures for my sister and her gang.
With non-stop weddings happening, I thought it would be nice to share a family session! This beautiful session happened about a month ago. It was right when wedding season kicked off for us but I knew it needed to be shared with all of you. This family is super special to us because they are our family (and because they are pretty awesome)! Brittany is my husband’s little sister and we are very, very close with she, Taylor, and beautiful little Camryn (or Buns, as everyone really knows her). Brittany and Taylor moved down to Louisiana just months after getting married, a couple years ago. EVERYONE misses them like crazy so we are all counting down the days for them to move back.
This Saturday was our last wedding of the spring and it was the perfect way to end our 5 week long stretch. I feel like it was so long ago that Lauren & I first sat down at Starbucks talking about all of her wedding plans! Really, it was about 10 months ago, but I have seen her since then for engagements bridals, each time getting more and more excited for the big day! We have just all been counting down. When Lauren’s mom walked in to the church that morning, the first thing she said to me was, “I can’t believe it! It’s finally here!” I just hugged her because I know their family, I know how close they are, and I know what that day meant to all of them.
Sean & Stacey got married this past weekend and it was only 20 plus years in the making!! I have been messaging, emailing, and texting with Stacey for months about all of the details of the big day and how excited we both were! This day was prayed over and waited for….and there was so much joy when it came. Sean & Stacey both have such a great support system with their family and friends. People who love them, stand by them, and are cheering for them every step of the way. It was so beautiful to see all of these people come together to celebrate the two of them!
