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.

Creating your wedding invitations | Tips for Brides

You have your date, your colors and your overall theme—now it’s time to create your wedding invitations. I’ll be honest, I was a DIY print at home girl. I purchased blank invitations featuring a pretty letterpress purple orchid from Target (they’ve since gotten out of the wedding invitation game). I also purchased the coordinating RSVP […]

Rachel + John | Richmond Elopement

The current COVID-19 pandemic may have halted some large scale celebrations, but it hasn’t cancelled love as evidenced by Rachel and John’s backyard Richmond elopement. July 25 was chosen for their wedding date because it was the closest Saturday to their dating anniversary, so when regulations began changing regarding events, they chose to have a […]

Boho bridal inspiration | Snead’s Asparagus Farm

A helicopter, a stick tepee and boho bridal inspiration? Sign me up y’all! Nearly four years ago, I had the opportunity to participate in a styled wedding shoot at Snead’s Asparagus Farm in Fredericksburg. The shoot was based around a fiesta-style theme with a taco bar, margaritas, pinatas, bright colors and tons of fun Spanish-themed […]

Colorful Bridal Inspiration | Snead’s Asparagus Farm

Is there anything better than colorful bridal inspiration? I don’t think so, especially right now during all of this COVID-19 bleakness. We can all use a little brightness in our lives. Almost four years ago (I can’t believe it has been that long!), I captured a fiesta-style wedding shoot at Snead’s Asparagus Farm in Fredericksburg. […]

Kerry + Sergio | Washington, D.C. Wedding

Kerry and Sergio’s Washington, D.C. wedding was amazing, not only because of the beautiful setting and gorgeous green Kerry chose for her colors, but also because it happened right before everything shut down. The worldwide pandemic has affected us all, no matter where we are, and the wedding industry isn’t immune to that. So many […]

Katie + Daniel | Solomons Island Wedding

I have fond memories of touring the Drum Point Lighthouse as a child, so I was super excited to head back to the area for Katie and Daniel’s Solomons Island wedding. I actually hadn’t been back since the lighthouse tour when I was very young, so I had forgotten how beautiful the area is. It’s […]

Christmas Cinema | Made-for-tv Christmas movies

Okay, let’s be honest. Cinema may be a bit of an exaggeration when it comes to one of my favorite things about the holidays–made-for-tv Christmas movies. Yes, I’m talking Countdown to Christmas, Falalala Lifetime, Freeform (still likely known as ABC Family to most of us), UpTv. You name it, I watch it. And I start […]

Samantha + Chris | Bandit’s Ridge Wedding

Samantha and Chris had a beautiful Bandit’s Ridge wedding last month. The weather was warm, but gorgeous with bright blue sunny skies and the most perfect evening late summer, early fall light. However, maybe the most radiant thing was the huge smile Samantha had throughout the day. She was the epitome of a happy bride, […]

Danielle + Josiah | Maternity | Spotsylvania, VA

Sunflowers and baby bumps are the perfect combination. Snead’s Asparagus Farm was the site of Danielle’s first maternity session. It was unusually warm for January, but still had that wintery feel. It’s also the spot where we captured Noah’s six month photos and some of his other milestones so it only made sense we’d return […]
