Westin, Richmond, VA Bar Mitvah: Parker’s Bar Mitzvah was held at the Westin on November 12, 2016 with the service at Temple Beth-El. Coordinated by Naomi Meyer, this weekend was the perfect combination of fun and tradition.

Friday evening The Morgan Family hosted services at Temple Beth-El. Followed by an intimate Dinner at the Westin. We are so happy that they had us capture this evening as well, because it was full of memories that they will treasure forever.  The first set of images below show Parker, his brother Carter and his parents Jennifer and Dennis at the temple. Followed by pictures from the dinner at the Westin.

The second set of images show the Rock and Roll  themed celebration that took place on Saturday afternoon following the Bar Mitzvah. The Morgans hired a fabulous DJ from Maryland that had the kids and adults on the dance floor all afternoon long! First, the kids arrived by trolley. Then they entered the ballroom that had been prepared for a great time! There was lighting, candy centerpieces, delicious food and fun desserts. There was even a funnel cake surprise for Parker.

We could not have had more fun photographing Parker’s special day. The dancing was nonstop and we can’t be positive but Jennifer, Dennis and Carter may have danced more than Parker.

Logan + Spencer Marry at the Dominion Club


Logan + Spencer Marry at the Dominion Club and we are so honored to be there to document their special day. This fun-loving couple had a spectacular wedding day filled with so much love and laughter from their friends and family.

Jamie photographed, Logan’s mom, Kim’s wedding almost 22 years ago. Kim was so pleased with her wedding that she went back to all of the vendors that were still around today. We were so honored to get that phone call and immediately we knew that this would be a special wedding. We started with Logan and Spencer’s Engagement Session and we were thrilled that she wanted a traditional bridal portraits taken (that post coming soon!).

Logan and Spencer’s Special Day

The Dominion Club was the perfect venue. Davis Walker and her team could not have been more professional and accommodating. The bridal party had such a fun time getting ready at the club. There were so many laughs and just as many happy tears. One of the funniest moments happened with Kim was trying to get Logan into her gown. None of us could figure out how to tie up the back. When we finally figured it out everyone laughed so hard we cried because it was so simple and we had totally over-complicated the process.

While there we many funny moments throughout the day, the moment that brought tears to our eyes was the first look between the bride and the groom. Prior to this special moment, Spencer had read a special note written by Logan that immediately made him teary eyed. The simple look on his face said it all. Then that moment when he saw Logan in her dress – he was so emotional and over joyed to see her standing there. Jamie has photographed many first looks and he said that this one took his breathe away.

The entire night was filled with an abundance of love but we must say there was equally as much fun! Patrick from Nard’s Entertainment, kept this group on the dance until the end. (literally!) We do not usually include so many candids in our blog post but please scroll down to the end and see how much fun this group had on the dance floor.

Again, we were honored that Kim loved her images so much that she would trust us with capturing this special day for her daughter.
