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.

Winter Wedding Inspiration | Wintergreen Resort

Winter is for…weddings? I think when people think of ideal months or seasons for weddings, they automatically go for spring, summer or fall, but winter weddings can be absolutely stunning.

Ruth + Zach | Chesterfield Wedding

I first met Ruth and Zach last fall at Maymont. We spent a warm afternoon exploring the grounds and capturing their engagement photos. They were so much fun together, plus Ruth and I share a love for Coca-Cola (definitely my biggest vice I know, but I’m not a coffee girl. Instead, I prefer an ice […]
