My heart exploded with happiness on this couple’s wedding day. Not only for these two and their future, but because they couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day in Lebanon, Virginia to get married. They got married at Elizabeth’s newly-renovated childhood home and it was a dream. With a double-wide stone wraparound porch decorated […]

Kelsey and Andy are medical students who live in Richmond, they’d just been placed for residency when we shot their engagement session! It was an exciting day for so many reasons, and we had a blast! I love the chemistry between these two. It’s obvious that they share so many qualities – ambition and a […]

Another romantic sunrise session for y’all! Nestled into the hustle and bustle that is Northern Virginia, there is this sweet little town. It’s right on the river and kind of feels like a fairy tale. There are tons of mom and pop shops and restaurants that have been here forever, and at sunrise, it’s basically […]

Every year, I have weddings that fill my heart with propelling joy. They make me say, “YES! This is why I do this!” and give me such good energy that lasts all season. And Andy and Kelsey’s Richmond, VA wedding at the Armour House was one of them. When they told me they were keeping […]

She shared her dress, and asked for makeup and florist recommendations… Mia and James got married in Charlottesville Virginia at the UVA Chapel [complete with entertainment from the Hullabahoos], and it was quite […]

Every once in a while, I have a couple who does something outside of the norm when it comes to their wedding day. This year, it seems like I have more of those than usual, and I’m loving it! Ally and Nate had an intimate wedding at the always-lovely Old Metropolitan Hall in Charlottesville on […]

Washington DC proper has some really fun locations for portraits besides the iconic monuments. You know I love sessions at the monuments… but even more, I love that Mia and James chose a location that meant so much to them. We shot at Meridian Hill Park, near where James lives in DC. These two have […]

I got an email from Lyndsey, sister to a 2017 bride, that she was engaged. It is seriously the biggest compliment when I get to photograph a sibling of a past couple. And, oh, how I love this couple. [And anyone who wakes up for a sunrise session, let’s be serious.] There is something so romantic […]

We had the most gorgeous day in Richmond, Virginia for Lauren and Colin’s Monument Avenue engagement session. I’m thrilled to share this couple’s photos with you. We had a blast walking around the streets of the fan, finding all of the trees in bloom. especially in the “secret” garden these two shared with me.We missed […]

Sometimes it’s hard to pick my favorite thing about my job. Meeting a cute basset-pug-beagle mix named Beaker?! It’s very near the top of the list. Also at the top, when the weather cooperates. On Alex and Luke’s engagement session day, we had predictions of wind gusts up to 30mph – and you’d never know! […]
