This past weekend I had the pleasure of catching up with the Blanton Family at the Historic Oatlands Plantation in Leesburg, Virginia. You have no idea how amazing it felt to pick my camera up again since COVID19. I was so glad that we were able to capture their family photos before their son, Kenny, […]

I can never stress enough to my clients how important it is for them to fully trust their wedding photographer.

It should be pretty simple, […]

I had the absolute best time with Melissa & Brendan for their engagement session this past weekend at East Lynn Farm! It was nice to see Melissa again after all these years as our families grew up together in the same church. When Melissa reached out to me by email regarding her wedding, I was […]

If Alex & Scott’s wedding at 48 Fields is even the slightest preview for what my 2020 wedding season is going to look like, it’s going to be pretty hard to top this year. With a 55 degree day in February, the most beautiful golden light for portraits, combined with such amazing company…you could not […]

As a Virginia wedding photographer, I can’t complain when we end up having a 50 degree day in February for Ashley & Ryan’s Leesburg engagement session! I had such a wonderful time meeting up with these two, as I will be capturing their special day come May. It’s crazy to think that it’s just a […]

An added bonus of being a wedding photographer, is the chance to reunite with my couples to help capture their exciting news. It always brings a smile to my face when a former BD bride reaches out to let me know that she is expecting 🙂 It’s such an honor to be able to continue […]

Hello, 2019! Laura & Nick’s Maternity session was my first session back since the birth of my own baby girl. It felt so good to pick up my Nikon again & put my creativity back to work. I only wish the snow on the ground would have stuck around to add to their beautiful images. […]

This past weekend I got to switch gears a bit & capture senior portraits for Kenny in downtown Warrenton, VA. I have known Kenny & his family since he was just 4 years old when they became our new neighbors while living in Nokesville. It felt so surreal taking his portraits, as I still remember […]
