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.
A bit of a funny story on these photos: On our way home one afternoon, my husband and I found a gorgeous sunflower field. It was located at one of those pick-your-own-berries operations, so we figured it was fine to visit. We parked our car up near the store, which was open, walked to the sunflowers, took some photos, then walked to the berry patch, and that’s where it went down hill. Soon enough we had the owner out there asking us what we were doing and explaining how “dangerous” it was to walk across the field. Working in a rural county that prides itself on agritourism and bringing people out to the farms, I can admit I was confused, but we apologized, bought a less than stellar pepper at the store and rolled out. It was a bit embarrassing, and I wouldn’t do it again without visiting the store for some permission first, but I did get some great photos.
