There are so many charming and beautiful places in Richmond and Karen and Matthew happen to live at one of them- Monument Avenue! Karen and Matthew just recently moved to Richmond and bought a gorgeous home just two blocks from the iconic Monument Avenue in Richmond. And to top things off, the beautiful row of trees down the middle of the street were are the peak of their gorgeous fall foliage!
Karen is from New York and met her soon-t0-be husband there! But now she followed him down to Richmond where there are planting roots and starting the next phase of their lives together! Ever since buying our century-old home last year, I have a new appreciation for old homes and their architecture. Karen and Matthew’s 1901 Richmond home is a stunner! Fireplaces in every room, towering high ceilings and more! So we decided to start with a few photos at their new home before heading to Monument Ave just two streets away. Karen also shares my love for starting Christmas celebrations as soon as possible as she cheered on the guy setting up his decorations as we walked by!
I had a great time spending the afternoon with these two for their engagement session and can’t wait for their Pippin Hill wedding next year!
Matthew’s grandfather actually lived in the house on the left! So cool!
