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.

These two met several years ago and were engaged in July 2019 with attendance by a very special mouse–Mickey! Sean proposed to Amber not only at Disney, but in front of the main […]

Tacorra + Dwayne | Arbor Haven Wedding

I first spoke with Tacorra less than a month before her September Arbor Haven wedding. Her photographer had fallen through and that person’s loss was absolutely my gain. Tacorra and Dwayne’s wedding was beautiful and featured my favorite color–mint. Plus, I always love an Arbor Haven wedding day. The owner, Keri, is fantastic. She really […]

Morgan + CJ | Frontier Culture Museum Wedding

When I think of Morgan and CJ’s Frontier Culture Museum wedding, I think of fun! I also then get Nelly stuck in my head, but that’ll make sense in a minute. Morgan and CJ met at work and knew each other in passing for about a year before one hike changed everything. They hit it […]

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. Imagine a bride in her dress in the snow with a faux fur shawl and beautiful flowers that add just a tiny pop of color. […]

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 […]

Emily + Jake | Lake Anna Wedding

One of the first things Emily said to me about Jake was that he made her laugh like no one else could and that was evident from the day we first met in person at their engagement session to the day of their Lake Anna wedding. Like so many of my couples and couples in […]
