Dreaya and Brad had a beautiful fall wedding surrounded by all their friends and family at Renback Barn.  I loved working with them, but what I loved most of all was seeing just how happy the two of them are together.  They radiate joy, and it was so easy to celebrate them the entire day […]

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. […]

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 […]

Today’s blog post is a great one!  I photographed Kirsten and Austin’s engagement session in Bluemont, and it was such an amazing day.  We met up at Bear Chase Brewery for the first part of their session, then ventured out to Bear’s Den Overlook for sunset portraits.  I had never been to the brewery or […]

A few weeks back, I ventured out to Shenandoah to meet Dreaya and Brad for their engagement session.  I was so excited when Dreaya asked if they could schedule their session at Brad’s family’s farm because I knew the fall foliage would be beautiful and I love when I get to photograph engagement sessions at […]

This engagement session was so sweet, and the perfect way to kick off my summer season!  Jillian and Travis had to reschedule their wedding due to COVID-19, so we also held off on taking their engagement portraits.  Once things began to open back up, we picked a new date for their session and ended up […]

I want to go back and photograph this wedding again and again.  That is how amazing Chris and Amanda’s day was back in October!    From the time Amanda had initially booked me for her wedding, I knew it was going to be one for the books!  The best way for me to describe this […]
