I'm a published wedding and portrait photographer located in a small town outside of Charlottesville. In addition to capturing beautiful images, I love spending time with my family, am freakishly good at word games (Hey Wheelmobile!), love an ice cold can of Coke or Dr. Pepper, know every line to Hocus Pocus and can never pass up a Chick-fil-A waffle fry or a trip to HomeGoods.

A farm, fields and a gorgeous bride… | Fredericksburg Virginia Bridal Photographer

I’m beyond excited to share these photos from a recent styled shoot at Belvedere Plantation. The plantation, which is a favorite fall destination of mine, has stepped into the wedding business, offering up its gorgeous grounds as the backdrop to ceremonies and receptions. As seen in the photos below, the fields offer the perfect backdrop for bridal photos. The lighting kept changing, since the day went from hazy and hot to impending storms and back to hot again, but this bride worked it. Love these!
