Ashley & Brian | Wedding Day Highlights

These guys were absolutely incredible! I think Ashley is my spirit animal with her love of all things music! She and Brian are perfect for each other! The opening scenes, they created them all on their own. I didn’t have to tell them to do anything, they just played around and loved on each other, and danced on Broad Street and it was amazing!  Check out their highlight video from their beautiful wedding at The Renaissance in downtown Richmond!

Big Things for Pretty In Ink!

I am terrible about blogging! I really, really am! I thought I would make a good run of it when I switched my website over and lo and behold, that did not happen 😦

But here’s some fun things that have been happening around here! I am in full wedding season swing! I am definitely not as busy as I have been in years past, but I am working on other non-wedding projects so you’ll be seeing more of those around either on Facebook or Instagram (which I’m also terrible about updating!).

The BIGGEST THING is Pretty In Ink has moved! That’s right, my at-home studio is now a full-fledged, not at-home studio! I’m now down at The Shoppes at The Renaissance at 101 W. Broad Street! I am super excited to be downtown and with a bunch of like-minded wedding vendors! I have really loved everyone there and I love being able to meet clients in a new beautiful space. I am sharing the space with the most talented Amber from Amber Kay Photography. She is a fabulous senior photographer and her weddings are gorgeous!

So for office hours, they’re kind of hit or miss. If you want to meet, let me know and I’ll schedule a time we can meet down there. I haven’t quite gotten in the groove yet of going down there on a regular basis. With that being said, I will be requiring face to face meetings with all new clients. It is a great way to get to know each other and for me to share my work in person with you. Continue to send emails and lets schedule appointments.

Also, I recently did a styled shoot with a bunch of AMAZING vendors! Check it out! Once I get a little bit of down time, I will upload a bunch of other things I’ve been working on!

Why Video?

For many of you, this is your first visit to Pretty In Ink. So I welcome you! I wanted to share with you a little bit about why I chose video. Video moves, video has sound, video shows emotion. Don’t get my wrong, I have photographs that I cherish, but I love to hear the sounds that videos produce.

When I went back to college as an adult, I wasn’t sure what it was that I wanted to be when I grew up. I gravitated toward journalism but what I loved the most was producing my own news packages. I loved filming and I loved editing. It wasn’t until I left school that I realized news wasn’t for me, but the love for the video and the love for editing and being creative took over! So here I am, several years later, in love with making movies about love!

Now, don’t get me wrong, as much as I love shooting weddings, I also love shooting live music (and I do that A LOT!), I also shoot corporate events and commercials. So yes, my feeds are full of weddings, but occasionally you’ll see random bands or random meetings. Because I love video and I love filming!

If you have any questions about my services, please do not hesitate to contact me! I can create custom packages for any event, no matter how small or how large!
