Ginny+Carson // Richmond, VA Wedding

We first met Ginny and Carson when we shot their engagement session in Durham last year and, upon publishing them, everyone thought I was her and wondered what I had done with Geoff. But Geoff was safe and sound and I was indeed not Ginny despite also having big glasses and a pixie cut. Then Ginny and I both began growing our hair out, occasionally sending pictures to each other of our awkward hair lengths for moral support. Carson then also grew his beard out. Geoff still maintained his beard. And now we all kind of match again – beards for the guys and chinnish-shoulderish length hair for the girls that I threatened to cut off at least twice a day.

But I digress. We joined them and their super fun family and friends in Richmond to celebrate their wedding. It rained sideways (we’ve been having a terrible track record with rain this year) and I photographed six very polite and patient women out in that mess, heels sinking into the ground and all. But I didn’t have an umbrella, so I became very gross quite quickly, and ended up stepping into an old church soaking wet and over apologizing. The groomsmen congratulated me on my efforts (thank you). The very old church that I got a bit damp with my presence was the church where Patrick Henry gave his famous “Give me liberty or give me death!” speech in 1775. Ginny is a descendent of Patrick Henry (neat!) and Carson isn’t, but he’s pretty cool nonetheless. We love them both and wish them all the happiness in the world. Thanks for having us up to Richmond, guys!
