I met Erica when a friend referred me to her sweet little shop.
At the time, I was a bride looking for one of the things all brides search for.
Flowers, I found them. My bridal bouquet? I adored it.
I never expected I would gain a friend in the process.
Erica is one of the most beautiful, kind, gentle souls I have ever had the joy in knowing. Cameron, her husband, compliments her perfectly with his calm nature. Together, they own Black Creek Flowers and Sweets in Mechanicsville. They not only do amazing work, but they love what they do, they love their clients, and most of all, they love each other.
And ya’ll know me and love…it’s kind of my thing!
I was elated when Erica approached me to inquire about taking pictures for their new website. We had the best time together on a mild January afternoon at Cold Harbor Battlefield, just minutes from where Erica grew up. I am so happy to have been able to capture her talent in that beautiful bouquet as their business grows, but also to provide them with timeless images of themselves as a young couple that they can return to whenever they need a reminder of where they came from.
Photog friends: My advice to you: Always take care of your vendors. We need to work for each other, and offer to help in any way possible. You never know when a business relationship will turn kindred spirits into treasured friends!
