birthday girl playing in her white nurseryEmma’s floral birthday party last weekend was amazing! We loved celebrating this cutie who turns ONE today. Seriously, how did that even happen?! It feels like just yesterday I was on the way to the hospital to welcome this sweet baby girl into the world. Her birth story was pretty incredible. She arrived about an hour and a half after we got to the hospital. Talk about fast!

She is full of energy and brings so much joy to our lives. We literally could not imagine our lives without her! We love you so much, sweet baby girl! View full post »

family of three smiling at camera at the airportI had a blast taking these family photos in Loudoun County for our sweet friends, Angel and Kevin! When we moved to Leesburg, Va a few months ago, Angel talked to me about how she would love to have some photos taken of her little family. I was, of course, excited to help out!

Kevin is a flight instructor so it goes without saying that we had to incorporate planes in their session. We were able to use the Leesburg Airport for their session and I absolutely love how the pictures turned out. Photographing a gorgeous family is definitely an added bonus :) View full post »

engaged couple kissingThese beautiful Purcellville engagement photos are the first images I got to photograph in Northern Virginia since our move here a couple of months ago. Katie and Josh traveled all the way to Purcellville, Virginia for their engagement photos and I had such a blast getting to know the two of them. They are getting married in October and I couldn’t be more excited for them.

I actually heard about Katie for the first time from one of our new friends in NoVa. When Katie asked if I were available on her wedding day, I was so excited to let her know that I would be honored to photograph her wedding. View full post »

bride and groom photo at barn wedding venue in virginia

Looking to have your wedding at one of the most beautiful barn wedding venues in Virginia? Sorella Farms will make your wedding day run flawlessly, no doubt about it! The staff certainly outdid themselves for Anne Claire and Jon’s wedding this past weekend.

The couple met during Anne Claire’s freshman year at Liberty University. Her roommates talked her into going to the Block Party and Jon was there with some of his friends. They started talking  and slowly became friends. He asked Anne Claire to date him on a sunset hike one October evening, and the rest is history. View full post »

couple looking at the camera and smilingHow adorable is Casey’s floral dress? It was perfect for her Sorella Farms engagement photos! I told her that I needed one in my closet asap!!

Casey and Brandon are the sweetest couple and I cannot wait to photograph their wedding in October. I photograph sessions and weddings at Sorella Farms quite often, and I promise that every new session somehow becomes a new favorite. On top of everything, I never run out of locations to shoot here because Sorella Farms is truly the most versatile wedding venue around. From the back yard feeling, to the lake and mountain views, this Virginia wedding venue has it all in one place and easily accessible. View full post »

bride and groom nuzzling in front of a pink fenceKelly and Perry’s coral reef and malibu blue wedding was simply amazing, to say the least! I mean, they had me at coral reef and malibu blue. I just love it when brides decide to do something fun and add a pop of color to their big day!

On the morning of the wedding, Kelly and I ran into each other at breakfast. Without knowing it, we had spent the night at the same hotel. If you follow me on Instagram, you might remember that I posted about being evacuated from our hotel room about a week ago. It all happened the night before Kelly and Perry’s wedding! Around 1:20 a.m. that morning the fire alarm at the hotel went off. Everybody gathered in front of the hotel until we were allowed to go back to our rooms. Thankfully, it was a false alarm. There was no fire and no one was harmed. View full post »

mountain engagement photoI could shoot mountain view engagement photos for days! I never get tired of shooting with the mountains in the background! I am so excited that Adriane and Patrick chose Sierra Vista as their engagement session location.

We planned for a mid-afternoon session when the sun was still high in the sky, and let me just tell you: I’m a total fan! It’s no secret that I love me some gorgeous natural light for my sessions. I’ll take sunny over cloudy all day, every day!  Before I continue on with how amazing their session was, I want to introduce you to this sweet couple.

Meet Adriane and Patrick! They are seriously such a dream couple to work with! To say that I am looking forward to their wedding at Glencliff Manor is a total understatement. View full post »

bride wearing dress from celebration bridalLet me start off by saying that this is not your average white barn wedding! The Old Mill Farm in Bedford, Virginia certainly outdid themselves with this gorgeous wedding. The venue has an amazing modern white barn to host every reception. It’s truly every photographer’s dream! To be honest, I’ve been looking forward to Lauren and Erik’s wedding day ever since I took their engagement photos at the Old Mill Farm.

Erik and Lauren met back in 2012 while they were both working at a summer soccer camp in Erik’s hometown of Radford, Virginia. After spotting each other on the second day of camp, Erik and Lauren spent the next few days learning more about each other. Throughout the week, Erik asked Lauren out a total of three times, but had no luck. View full post »

bride and groom walking at their garden weddingHunter and Karen had a gorgeous garden wedding reception and ceremony at Glencliff Manor! I had been looking forward to their wedding for the past few months because, after photographing their engagement session, I knew their wedding was going to be absolutely amazing. And it truly was a special celebration! Their family and friends all gathered together at the beautiful Glencliff Manor in Rustburg to celebrate Hunter and Karen’s big day.

What I love the most about Glencliff Manor is that it is the perfect venue for an intimate garden wedding reception. The english moss and the outdoor lights hanging from the trees make this Virginia wedding venue a dream location for brides who love outdoor weddings. Just take a look at this gorgeous ceremony site below and you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about! View full post »

Am I the only one excited about spring engagement photos?! Spring is finally here, and so are the engagement sessions! My photographer heart is so full. I’ve been looking forward to warmer weather so I could start scheduling engagement sessions before the wedding season starts in full swing.

I met Anne Claire and Jon at Sorella Farms for an evening engagement session the other day. It was a gorgeous day with an even more gorgeous golden light. What I love about Sorella Farms is that, even though I shoot weddings and engagements there often, I always find new spots to photograph at and no two sessions look alike.

We started the session in this cute spot by the farmhouse where the light was so dreamy, then did an outfit change and went down to the pond. View full post »
