I’m changing it up on you this morning and sharing one of my FAVORITE 3 Humans. Every time they are in front of my camera they not only give me all of the magic but they fill my heart so much it could possibly explode (so it feels). Mommy and me sessions are most def […]

Oh I’ll bet you remember these two! Melissa and Joe had the most INCREDIBLE engagement session at Swannanoa and are literal MODELS! I left their engagement session just wishing the time away to get to their Trump Winery Wedding! (For those of you who are interested in browsing their engagement session- and I think you […]

I’ll be honest, AJ and Jamie’s Seven Springs wedding is going to be hard to get through, but in a good way. I IMMEDIATELY connected with Jamie and that was without even talking to her or meeting her… strictly just through email. I remember thinking “dang, this girl is on it and I love that […]

Maggie and Neal were married on June 5, 2021 in a beautiful mountain view ceremony at Barn at Edgewood. (I know, I know I’m a little late on sharing their big day!) I loved, and I mean LOVED, how excited and anxious Neal was to see Maggie. I mean, most grooms are, but Neal was […]

Erin and Justin were officially married in a small family gathering last year (you can view that gallery and read about that day here!) but this Oakdale wedding celebration in Ashland, VA was just as sweet and a whole lot of fun!   I was super excited to finally get Erin & Justin’s family and friends […]

I meet Kendall & Andrew at Maymont Park in Richmond, Virginia over the weekend to celebrate and capture their engagement season. It was a little on the warm side but we were so thankful for shade, overcast, & a breeze. We had SO much fun and I laughed SO much, what a fun couple! Normally […]

Oh we have a SHOW STOPPER today! Jennifer and Garrett’s Washington DC Engagement session was everything I could have hoped for!  When I think about the city I get overwhelmed if I’m being honest, I’m def. a backroad kinda girl and NOT a parallel parking kinda girl LOL. 😂 This is the main reason why […]

I’ve been eagerly awaiting to share this one and I’m beyond excited to share Brooke & Mark’s Raven’s Roost Overlook Elopement and Garden celebration with you all.
