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 | Part One | Cousiac Manor

I’m not a cold weather girl, but I love a winter wedding. I know that’s a contradiction, but there’s something about a bride in sleeves and (faux!) fur that I love as well as the rich jewel tones that are often found in winter weddings. Winter weddings tend to be all about burgundy, deep blues […]

The two were married in an intimate ceremony at St. Edwards Catholic Church in Richmond, followed by a reception at The Boathouse at Sunday Park. It was easy to tell that family is […]

It poured the morning of Rhen and Erin’s Paynefield Farm wedding in Tappahannock last month, but you wouldn’t have known it by the time the ceremony hit.
