I first met Andelyn when I was photographing her sister’s wedding. Jordan, who is now one of my best friends, has always kept me filled in on her family – and so I feel like I know Andelyn better than I actually do. But I’m just still pretending we’re besties because she’s so stinking cool. And […]

If you find yourself in Richmond, you’ll notice it has a subtle artistic flare. I’ve heard about and seen photos of these murals, but I’ve never explored far enough to actually find them. When Holly and Ted emailed me to photograph their engagement session, they asked if we could shoot there. YES! Finally! We decided […]

Because most of their dating relationship took place in Lexington, they decided it would be the perfect place for their engagement session! We started […]

Maui is by far our favorite place on the planet. For Chad’s 30th birthday, we invited some of his closest friends and their wives to to come with us HAWAII! We spent all of our time exploring. Hiking, finding waterfalls, snorkeling, surfing, swimming, whale watching… In the end, we left approximately 34 minutes for our Maui couples portrait session. Whoops! […]

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 […]

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 […]
