Springtime Family Portrait Session


Before you read this post, we ask that you watch this video that Mary did for Professional Photographers of America (PPA) on the Print Movement. Mary was asked to do this video at the same time the Bumgardners about getting an updated family portrait. The portrait installation at the end of this video is at the home of the Bumgardners, whose session is detailed below.

Portrait Session

Sometimes it seems impossible to explain to new clients the importance of print. We try to emphasize the importance of having a family portrait sessions done by a professional photographer and having those images printed for all to see.

However, our hearts sing when our long-time clients call us and say, “It is time for a new family portrait.” That is exactly what happened before we photographed this session.

Dutch, the father, called because his anniversary was approaching. The only present that his wife had asked for was an updated portrait of their girls. Dutch explained how much the first portrait of Lizzie and Emma meant to their family. He knew the only gift that would make his wife happy was a new oil portrait. These words truly brought Jamie to his knees. He quickly looked up the Bumgardner family’s first portrait and right away he remembered every detail. We know we are truly blessed to be able to create these amazing memories for our clients. To hear that this was the only gift that Brooke wanted; literally music to our ears.

Dutch, Brooke, Lizzie, and Emma visited our Parham Road location to have their portrait session photographed in our garden. Whether spring or fall, our garden makes for the perfect backdrop. Now that spring has made it to Virginia, we are ready to welcome families for their spring portrait sessions.

Mary had been asked by PPA to make a Print Movement video around the same time we received Dutch’s call. We knew right away that this session would be a great one to highlight in this video. We have always expressed the importance of print to our clients, and it is our pleasure to share it with our colleagues as well.

Perfect Richmond Fall Wedding


Alicia and Andrew were married on the perfect fall day in Richmond, Virginia. They exchanged vows on November 11, 2017, at Trinity United Methodist Church. Following their church wedding guests enjoyed a full night of dinner, drinks, and dancing at The Jefferson.

There was a chill in the air that day, but the warmth of The Jefferson was the perfect place for the bride and groom to get ready for their special day. The trees outside were the perfect shade of yellow and that made the perfect backdrop for their first look. Alicia could not stop smiling the entire day, especially when she looked at Andrew. Their first look was one of Jamie’s favorites because they were so giddy in love.

When we think back to their Engagement Session, we remember how in love they looked. They constantly had their eyes on each other and their wedding day was no different. Their smiles were infectious, you couldn’t help but smile when you looked at this fun-loving couple.

Once everyone was ready for the wedding, they traveled to Trinity United Methodist Church for the ceremony. After that, guests joined the couple in the Rotunda at the Jefferson Hotel for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Then they made their way upstairs for dinner and dancing. Jimmy at the Jefferson Hotel always sets the stage for the best parties as the food, decor, and timing were just perfect as usual. There is not a more beautiful backdrop for a wedding than the Jefferson Hotel!

Family is very important to Alicia and Andrew, so we made sure to capture as many special moments as possible with them and their parents. These are images that they will treasure for a lifetime. We especially loved capturing Alicia dancing with her dad. He sang to her and twirled her around on the dance floor like they were the only two in the room.

The band Soul Expressions kept the guests on the dance floor until the bitter end. So much fun was had by all! When the night was finally over, Alicia and Andrew were sent off with a spectacular bubble display.

Wine Tasting and New Product Launch


Recently we celebrated the launch of a new and special product with our friends from Mosaic Catering & Events and some very special guests.  This wine tasting and new product launch was a complete success. We were thrilled to celebrate with some very special friends and members of our Hayes & Fisk family.

We hosted the event at Mosaic Catering & Events. The wines were brought in from Tenuta Torciano Winery from San Gimignano, Italy and Mosaic provided the delicious food. We met the lovely people from Torciano Wine while we were photographing a wedding in Tuscany last year. We loved the wines and the people, and we knew a wine tasting would make for the perfect new product launch.

Hayes & Fisk will be sharing more information regarding our new product in the upcoming weeks. We are certain our clients are going to love this new product and are thrilled to be able to provide yet another method to bring our images to life.

Finally, we want to thank everyone that joined us for the wonderful event. We received lots of positive comments about the wines, food, and our new product.
