***NEWS FLASH*** Holiday Card Family Portrait Session Special!!!

October 6th, 2011

By popular request, I’m running a holiday card portrait session special this year!

$150 bucks.  30 minutes of your time, tops.  2 day turnaround with up to 20 pics of your crew.  One high res file included in the price for your card.


There are some parameters:

- Offer valid only through the months of October and November 2011.

- Portrait session must be scheduled on a week day.  If it rains, its back to the drawing board based on my availability, back up rain dates can’t be held so schedule soon…

- Session must be scheduled outdoors and within Richmond city limits.  Libby Hill Park in Church Hill, for example, is the perfect spot with both a city and river view. (Please note, some privately run parks such as Maymont and Ginter allow portraiture but require a sitting fee or donation for use of their property)

Contact me for more details at samandmel@worthington-photography.com.  Hope to see you soon!

Fate, a Bus and a Little Black Book

March 10th, 2011


In case you missed the story of Katie and Lee’s wedding last August, Windy Jennings blogged about it yesterday as a feature for Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book.  Like all good stories, its one that should be told again and again so check it out.   Sometimes great opportunity masquerades as impending disaster and it was great to be part of a team that knew how to pull off the disguise!

Jennifer the Thoughtful

July 1st, 2010

Jennifer and Tim’s wedding last spring was beautiful in so many ways: Jennifer and Tim are among the warmest folks we have had the good fortune to shoot for.  Just the other day I was saying to Sam that its the brides who think of others on the day of their wedding who truly impress me.  I’ll never forget arriving at the Mill the day of Jenn and Tim’s wedding because Jenn ran up to greet a very pregnant version of me with a hug and a gift bag containing a beautiful silver spoon for the baby.  I was floored, I couldn’t believe that in all the hullabaloo of wedding planning, of all the things she had to remember to bring with her that day, she had taken the time out to think of our family much less bring us a gift.  Predictably, I started crying and blamed it on the hormones.

We are so fortunate to shoot for so many brides and grooms who are beautiful people like that.

When Sestra Bridal got in touch to ask if we would share photos for their blog, that Jennifer had wanted to share her story I thought: how Jenn is that?  Of course she would take time out of her super busy day to offer a recommendation for a vendor she had a great experience with, she’s just that kind of gal.   So check out Jennifer’s story on the Sestra Bridal blog.  Congrats to Sestra for a job well done and congrats to  Jenn and Tim on this first, beautiful year of marriage they have enjoyed together.
