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.

Sneak Peek: Spotsy Homecoming

Two sneak peeks in one week? I know right. Check out this photo of Hannah (remember her from the volleyball photo?) and her friends all dressed up for Homecoming. Their fabulous dresses made me wish I had a formal event coming up. I mean the sequin details? Gorgeous!
