Sara and Kevin waited so long for this day to happen, and it was truly the perfect celebration of their marriage.  They actually exchanged their vows last year (you can see that blog post here), but decided to postpone their big celebration with all their friends and family until 2021.  It is safe to say […]

A new week means it is time for a new blog post!  I met Ashleigh and Dalton at Cedar Mountain Farm in Culpeper, and I had the best time chatting with them about all their wedding plans.  These two are so nice, and I know their spring wedding is going to be amazing next year. […]

Early morning summer engagement sessions might be my new favorite!  Due to weather challenges, Haylie and Nathanael had to move their evening portrait session to the morning, and I am so glad we did because the light was just perfect and we didn’t have to worry about rain for their photos.  Talk about a win! […]

One of my favorite aspects of being a wedding photographer is getting to know my wonderful clients and their families as I work with them.  Sometimes, I get the opportunity to work with the same families at multiple weddings, and it’s such an honor documenting these memories for them.  Faith and AJ got married a […]

Kendra and Matt tied the knot a few weeks ago at Mountain Run Winery.  To say their wedding was fun would be an understatement!  It was a super hot day, but they made the most of it and you could truly tell they had the best day ever (I am pretty certain their guests would […]

Emily and Mike are on the blog today!  Their wedding was special to me for a few reasons.  They decided to get married at Culpeper Baptist Church, which just so happens to be the church I grew up going to.  I have so many fond memories of time spent with my grandparents there, and it […]

I met with Faith and AJ earlier this month to document their engagement photos and we had the prettiest light!  It seems like we are experiencing more rainy/cloudy days than sunny days this year in Virginia (or at least every time I have a session the forecast doesn’t want to cooperate!) so I am always […]

Kicking off March with a new blog post!  I’ve been loving all these winter engagement sessions.  Even though I miss the greenery and blooms from spring, summer and fall sessions, there’s just something about the winter light that is spectacular and different from the other seasons.  This session with Danielle and Drew was absolutely beautiful […]
