Kidder - Richmond Lifestyle Photographer

Kidder reached out to me a few weeks ago asking to do some head shots for her new brand, and I was immediately sold on working with her!  I met Kidder a while back when I discovered that she lived in the same loft as me on Main St. for years before I moved in.  Having lived in Lynchburg for so long, Kidder became familiar with a ton of other local creative's work, and has been choosing her favorite artists to help her with her rebrand, including our other mutual friends Chelsea and Tucker Francis who just finished her logo.  When she described her work to me as romantic, classic, and minimal, I knew this would be the perfect chance to go explore Maymont Mansion in Richmond to get a few shots for her new site, which launches October 8th.  Kidder has invested so much of herself into her brand as one of Richmond's best lifestyle and portrait photographers, and I'm so excited to share a piece of what her energetic, sweet, and caring personality will bring to the new Kidder Connell Photography

Hay and Honey - Virginia Portrait and Lifestyle Photography

Thanks for making it over to the new blog and website!!!  I'm thrilled to share so much new work with you all.  I think one of my favorite aspects of the new brand, besides the amazing logo and minimal design, is that all of the images on this site have been shot almost entirely on film, which I've invested my past 3 months into learning.  I made the jump to start my own brand over a year ago now, but I never knew how far this journey would take me... so THANK YOU to everyone who has helped along the way, especially my totally rad clients, like Hayley Harris, (who made a few guest appearances around the site already).  Hayley was not only one of my brides this summer that trusted me to photograph her entire wedding on film, but she also just designed my new logo!  It so happens that she's incredibly talented at hand-lettering and design, so we've been working together for a while to launch her new brand, Hay + Honey.  Check it out and don't forget to enter to win a Poler brand backpack below!!  Thanks again!
