Finally (and slowly) getting around to blogging some of our weddings from 2018! Today I’m sharing Sammy and Michael’s wedding at the Glasgow Farm. I don’t think anything beats late Summer in terms of green, freshly rained lush and these photos really reflected that. As it does this time of year, it rained. However lucky […]

Wow, can you believe we’re already here again? It seems like not long ago at all I was putting this post together for last year. Today is actually my last day before I start my job full time again tomorrow, so it only seemed appropriate to blog my favorite wedding photos of the year. These […]

I have known Alison for a long time — I photographed her and her sisters as kids and did Senior photos for her oldest sister Emily a few years back. She has the kind of smile that just completely lights up a room, and you can feel that energy just illuminate from her photos.

Mikaela was a joy to photograph. She was so spunky and full of life — and with awesome taste in books may I add! During the second half of her session, we witnessed hundreds of butterflies at Chatham Manor. We ended with a few “very October appropriate” shots near the old corn stalks.

So here we are, my favorite shoot of the year! This is the fifth year we have done a Halloween shoot, which is insane. It doesn’t feel like five years has gone by since our first one. This year while down in Nola, I felt inspired by the cultural icon that is Marie Laveau. The […]

Wow, it’s been a hot second since I’ve blogged. Today I want to share this adorable tiny wedding in Old Town Fredericksburg with Amanda and Ryan. Amanda has modeled for me as a “bride” probably about three times in the past, since I’ve known her since right out of high school. But this time she’s […]

Enjoying this August downtime before Senior season heats up next month. Today I’m sharing Sarah’s session from a few months back. Sarah is also a photographer and will be attending VCU this year to study photography. She’s also the only Senior to date to ever have a rainbow in her photos!

Oh Trinity, probably one of the most rescheduled Senior sessions we’ve had yet! It seemed like every time we planned her session, rain would come and soak everything into a sopping wet mess. After about six (??) reschedules, we finally came into some sunshine. We did end up with some pretty high winds, but it […]

Trying to keep up with all of the amazing Senior shoots we did at the beginning of this Summer. Today, I’m sharing Arizona’s session. This was really fun because I also photographed her sister Riley a few years back as well. We got the epitome of amazing lighting for this session, even though it was […]
