One of the biggest honors as a wedding photographer is working with the same family for multiple weddings. Earlier this year, I photographed Lisa and Garrett’s beautiful Morais Winery wedding, and then a few weeks ago, Lisa’s sister, Stacy got married! It was a privilege to photograph Stacy and Tanyon’s stunning celebration at Renback Barn. […]

I am a little biased of course, but this is my favorite engagement session to date! When you combine photos of your sister and future brother-in-law at one of the most magical places on earth, it is a recipe for an awesome portrait session. For years, I have dreamed of photographing on Carova Beach, specifically […]

Rounding out August with one more engagement session! I met Sarah and Brandon at Snead’s Farm in Fredericksburg for their portraits. I hadn’t been to Snead’s for quite awhile so I was really looking forward to their session. As it turns out, they had a lot of flowers in bloom and the light was beautiful […]

Skyline Drive/Shenandoah National Park in the summer has quickly become one of my favorite engagement session locations. While most people love to visit that area in the fall, there is something spectacular about photographing portraits in the summer. Everything is lush and green and so peaceful! Needless to say, I was super excited that Nicole […]

I’ve had so many wonderful summer engagement sessions, and this one was no exception! I met up with Kara and Matt in Culpeper for their session and they brought their Harley Davidson. They love to ride motorcycles, so it was perfect to incorporate that into their engagement portraits. I love when clients add a personal […]
