I met Morgan and Andrew at sunrise in Richmond’s Shockhoe Bottom! It wasn’t as cold as it could have been in February, but we did use my Cafe au Lait from Urban Farmhouse as a hand warmer a few times! During their session, we were sure to showcase all of Richmond, starting with an early morning […]

If you think photographing weddings is nerve wracking, let’s talk about photographing proposals! My heart was beating so fast as soon as I caught a glimpse of these two! But, back up a few months. I got an email from Carlton who had plans to propose at Salamander, one of my favorite venues in Virginia! […]

The first time I met Jill and John, we just CLICKED. These two are Virginians who share a love of USVI, Kenny Chesney, and anything laid back. I mean, I was basically saying, “Me too,” after every sentence of theirs. Anyway, the love story. These two got engaged after a near-deportation incident in St. John involving […]

How did I get so lucky?? I have had the privilege of photographing some amazing love stories, and these two were no different. [Not to mention, I felt like I was photographing Jackie O!] Nancye said “Yes!” to Alex surrounded by roses in a garden while they were on a trip celebrating her 30th birthday in […]

What a fabulous season to get photos done!! It’s not hard to see why photographers are slammed during the fall. I loved getting to meet these two THE DAY BEFORE their wedding!! Even though we didn’t have much time before their wedding day, I love that they still wanted to make the most out of their […]

In town for the JMU and W&M game [where we Dukes defeated the poor green and gold…], Michael and Christine decided to make the most of their time and do their session here in Williamsburg, VA! Their only request was that we have a beach type of location as an option. So, we started our […]

There’s nothing better than reconnecting with old friends, and Donnie? I’ve known him for what seems like forever! It’s been years since we’ve seen each other and I’m so grateful the time catching up was at his engagement session. I asked them to pick a location that was meaningful to them, and I love that […]

After photographing Caitlin and Ryan near their home in Baltimore, I’m pretty sure every engagement shoot needs to involve ice cream. [Thank you to Bmore Licks for letting us shoot around your amazing store!] This shoot is special to me because I met Caitlin through her sister [remember that epic Ocean City Engagement and Baltimore […]

There is no secret that any couple who loves the beach enough to bring me down to photograph them there will always have a sweet spot in my heart. I can’t help but carry that sentiment into their session. Kelly and Andrew were seriously a dream. It was a 75 + sunny kind of day in August […]

I remember the first time I walked into Katie and Allen’s home. It was like I had stepped into a Southern Living magazine. Not only because of how it was decorated, but because of how hospitable they were – asking me if I wanted a drink or if I needed anything. We sort of knew […]
