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.

Christmas Cinema | 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.

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 […]

Sometimes you meet people that you just click with and that was the case the first time I met Danielle and Josiah. Since then, I’ve photographed numerous milestones in their lives including most recently, the announcement that they’re expecting their second child.
