I don’t know if I’ve felt more honored than when Rachael asked me to be her photographer. Because Rachael herself is a great one – we went to CDIA together, and she has second shot for me several times.

We sat outside, sweating, drinking our iced coffee at Shenandoah Joe’s in Charlottesville and ¬†talked for an hour or so over about their wedding plans.

Sometimes I wonder if God tickles us. Before you click away, just hear me out. Have you ever been so joy filled that you laugh? Out loud? You’re heart starts to pound, you smile, you’re wiggly, and you know that there is a higher power at work. Not because you can prove it, but because […]

Chad and I loved our family vacation last week. It was so amazing to have no responsibility and hang out by the pool, in the sand, in the water. But one thing we both seemed to feel was the lack of rest. We both felt more exhausted at the end of the week that we […]

I know that my beautiful citrus delectables are “in season” in the winter. Whateves. No one sits down to a chilled cutting board of freshly picked citrus to escort their hot chocolate in front of the Christmas tree. Ok. Sometimes my mom cut me an orange or two. But what better beach snack than a […]
