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 […]

It’s been an interesting week with all the storms we’ve had, almost every night this week I’ve had to reschedule a session due to a line of storms going through. I will reiterate what I had said in my last blog post — Summer IS here. To contrast this cloudy weather, I decided to blog […]

First wedding of the season has finally hit the blog! We have some incredibly well styled (and extremely different) weddings this year and I am so excited to see the planning come together for each of them. Lisa and Duwane decided to have a high tea theme for their wedding and Braehead Manor is absolutely […]

Hope everyone is enjoying the weather this week, Summer has apparently arrived. Over the weekend we had the pleasure of photographing Courtney and Zack’s Cinco De Mayo wedding (it’s so amazing, cannot wait to share) but before that, I wanted to share a really cool idea that Courtney and I came up with prior to […]

I put together this quirky mock elopement for a mentoring session a few months ago and we were so excited when we saw that it was supposed to be sixty degrees. Well, it ended up being more like forty degrees and extremely windy. Haha March has been unpredictable (for example, is officially the first day […]

wedding

Rebecca and Christopher’s wedding was straight out of a novel — literally! This is definitely one of the more stylized, intricate weddings we have photographed and I clicked with Rebecca right away when she described her vision to me at our consultation. Not only was this wedding themed so well, but it was also full […]
