Before Morgan’s Richmond, VA wedding, we met earlier in the year at the VMFA for her bridal portraits! It’s always so sweet to get this extra time with the bride and her family. Morgan slipped into her dress and everyone in the museum stared in admiration [especially the little girls!] as we made our way […]

If you’re a fan of wedding portraits, this is the post for you! Ben and Mary decided it would be a lot to drive back and forth into DC on their wedding day. Rather than adding more stress to their day, they made use of their engagement session time for a bride and groom portrait session! We […]

This joyful girl. I’ve loved having Caroline in my life. About a year ago, we started helping out with youth group at our church and soon after, Caroline and Daniel moved to town and became a part of the group of students. I can’t imagine it without them! They bring a sweet realness and spirit of […]

Happy Friday! You may recognize this beautiful bride from her New Year’s Eve wedding a few posts ago. Before her wedding, I drove out to Caroline’s hometown to make some gorgeous portraits. It was sub freezing, and we prepared with keeping the car running near by for breaks and loading up on the hand warmers. We […]

This session is the very reason why I love bridal portraits. Kristen is the definition of modern classic beauty. These photos make her look like a movie star, but she has a style and way about her would make any Hollywood starlet jealous. Kristen chose Monumental Church for her bridals because, well, just look at these photos. […]

My friends are sending their kiddos off to school and I’ve watched some leaves fall to the ground. Fall is just around the corner, and although it isn’t my favorite season [I’m a summer girl], it has it’s perks. Clothes, football, pumpkin flavored everything…AND FALL MINI SESSIONS! Last year was the first time I’d offered the sessions and […]
