It’s been a pretty toasty Summer this year, let’s be honest. Normally for a July wedding you expect it to be warm — but you might not expect a heat index of 115! What can I say? Lexie and Sean (despite apparently bringing the heat) are an incredibly chill couple. We had so much fun […]

Zach and Hannah’s wedding was a perfect day in small-town Fredericksburg. This laid back, classic spring day was just what we needed to open our 2019 wedding season and we are so happy we got to be there for it! I got to play around a little more with light and reflection than I usually […]

Polegreen is one of my favorite venues in Virginia for obvious reasons, just look at that geometry! Ross and Kendall’s wedding was the perfect way to close out 2018. It was beautifully intimate with only their closest friends and family present on a cool November day. The foliage and decor was brilliant, along with a […]

Today we’re sharing Will and Alyssa’s Waynesboro wedding! The big day took place out at Stable Craft Brewing (who apparently makes great beer, according to Joey) and it was so, so much fun. It did rain intermittently as it tends to do in the Summer, but it actually ended up being really cool because Will […]

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 […]

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 […]

August is here! After July dragging by for what felt like forever, August is finally here and I feel like it’s going to fly by. Katie and Zane’s wedding was the final of our early Summer weddings, so I am ready to share this southern plantation, rose gold styled goodness with you all on this […]

I have been so looking forward to sharing this wedding on the blog!! Joey and I are huge history buffs, and Yorktown is one of Virginia’s greatest little gems. We’ve taken many weekend getaway trips to Yorktown and stayed in the Hornsby House — and last year my dream came true when Andrew and Alison […]

A few weeks ago on the blog I shared Courtney and Zack’s first look portrait session, so I’d like to say this is a part two blog post to their love story. If you haven’t seen that particular post, you can see it here (and I do suggest looking at that one first!) Fast forwarding […]
