Outdoor Bridal Portrait Session


Cathleen was stunning in her outdoor bridal portrait session. She was glowing from the moment she stepped into her gown. Cathleen visited our Parham Road studio and garden in Richmond, Virginia, for her session. It was a beautiful day and she wanted to use our garden as the backdrop for her bridal portraits.

We met Cathleen and her fiance (now husband), Edwin, through our photography work with the Richmond Flying Squirrels, where he used to play baseball. Jamie even traveled to San Diego, California for their Engagement Session. Click here to view the photos from that session.

Cathleen’s beautiful dress came from Bliss Bridal, a wonderful little bridal shop on Huguenot Road. Lou Steven’s Glam Squad did her hair and make-up for this session as well. You can always count on the glam squad to get you picture perfect for your wedding day or bridal portrait session.

While having a stunning Bridal Portrait is always the most important reason to schedule your session, it also serves as a great trial run for your special day. It gives you a chance to practice your hair and make-up and to see how it will photograph. You also get to spend some time in your wedding dress to make sure it fits and feels just the way you want it to, before you spend 6-8 hours in it at your wedding. Finally, it gives you one more opportunity to bond with your photographer and feel more confident in front of the camera.

Cathleen and Edwin were married in Richmond, Virginia on October 28th and we will share those images with you very soon.

Photographing Your Children from Year to Next: Katie is more than just a client of Hayes & Fisk, she might as well be family. Her mother, Terry, and Mary have been best friends since they attend St. Gertrude High School together, just a “few” years ago. You have seen Katie grace our blog for many years.

Every year, the Taylor Family celebrates Thanksgiving, in Kentucky, with the Dikes Family and the rest of the Kentucky Clan. While we are in Louisville, we always jump at the opportunity to photograph Katie. Even though we are fortunate to see Katies a few times a year, we couldn’t believe how much she has grown up from this past summer when we all vacationed in Virginia Beach.

As kids grow up, they change so much from year to year. This is why we encourage our Hayes & Fisk Families to have their children photographed as often as possible. Mary can speak from experience, your children will be off to college and out of the house sooner than you can blink, and these pictures will serve as a reminder and memories of their most formative years.

We have never had a family say they wish didn’t document a certain time in their child’s lives, but we have certainly had many regret missing a special time. So the next time you are considering booking that photography appointment, don’t hesitate, pick up the phone and make the call.

Below you will see images from Katie’s Fall 2017 session, but continue to scroll down and see how much she has changed from the same session we did in 2016.

We do have a few Quick Take appointments available. So if you would like to have your family photographed this year it is not too late!

VMFA Richmond, Virginia Wedding | Emily + David


Emily and David’s VMFA Richmond, Virginia Wedding was absolute stunner! Sometimes loves finds you when you least expect. So is the case for Emily and David who met at work in the ER. Their wedding was full of love, laughter and strong family and friend bonds – this wedding was a truly pleasure to be part of. We had the honor of photographing Emily’s Bridal Portraits and the couple’s Rehearsal Dinner so we truly felt like we were part of all of the festivities.

Click here to take a look at the images from Emily’s Bridal Portraits taken at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. This was also the location of their reception so it holds a special place in her heart. A portrait from her session was showcased at the wedding on a  gorgeous easel from Restoration Hardware.

Emily and all of the important ladies in her life got ready at the The Westin Richmond. Kaitlyn of Lou Stevens Glad Squad did Emily’s hair and make-up to perfection. Every detail from head to toe was exquisite. This day was truly about blending two families, so as you will from the pictures, Emily’s daughter, Dresden, and David’s daughter and son, Meredith and Eric, were included in every part of this day. From the girls getting ready with Emily, until everyone leaving together at the end of the night.  As a photographer, capturing the couple’s first look was truly amazing. The kids were part of this special moment and they were possibly more excited that Emily and David.

The ceremony took place at Cannon Memorial Chapel on the campus of the University of Richmond. Leora Willis of With This Ring I Thee Wed officiated the ceremony and String Theory Quartet provided the perfect music. We are a sucker for handwritten vows and Emily and David did not disappoint.

Following the love-filled ceremony, their closest family and friends joined the couple for a reception at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. After dinner, the band DC Synergy kept everyone on the dance floor all evening long. The couple’s only complaint was that the night couldn’t have lasted longer.

Jessica, Megan, and Molly of Elevated Events of VA did a wonderful job helping Emily and David plan and execute this perfect day. There wasn’t a detail left undone and the couple selected the best of the best to help them achieve their dream wedding.  And while Emily’s beautiful dress came from Bridals by Lori (of Say Yes to the Dress) in Atlanta, she made her own veil and much of the decor used that day.

This truly was the perfect day for Emily and David and we wish them all the best!
