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 […]

This was hands down the coldest engagement session I have ever photographed, but Emily and Mike were troopers.  Despite the wind and frigid temps, we had some beautiful winter light.  These two are amazing and I can’t wait to work with them again for their wedding later this year (they are having a summer wedding […]

2020 was such an unexpected year for so many to say the very least.  It is quite interesting to think of what my expectations were for the year, and now look back on everything that actually happened!  I shot my first wedding of 2020 in February, having no idea that the entire wedding industry would […]

Today’s blog post is extra good because it involves dogs!  If you know me, you know I’m obsessed with dogs so I always tell my clients it’s a good idea to bring their dog(s) to their engagement session!  Kendra and Matt were 100% on board with that and brought all three of their adorable dogs […]

In the midst of all the craziness that 2020 has brought for weddings and wedding planning, there has been a silver lining.  Many couples have opted to postpone their big wedding celebration, but still get married on their original date surrounded by those who mean the most.  Sara and Kevin decided to do just that, […]
