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 […]

Changing it up from the usual and sharing a different type of portrait session on the blog today…. a proposal!  A few weeks back, I was very fortunate to document Maria and Kevin’s engagement.  I love getting to capture proposals because each one is so unique and there’s something special about photographing the newest season […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

I met Corey and Trevor at the beautiful James Charles Winery in Winchester for their engagement session, and it was the best way to kick off the 2021 portrait season!  Corey had emailed me asking if we could do a cozy fireside engagement session and I loved that idea.  The winery offered fire pits, kits […]
