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.

Laura and Kyle may have had to wait a few extra months for their Lake Anna wedding, but it was so worth it. They were originally supposed to get married in April, but thanks to COVID-19, they moved their wedding to mid-September.

Colorful Bridal Inspiration | Snead’s Asparagus Farm

Is there anything better than colorful bridal inspiration? I don’t think so, especially right now during all of this COVID-19 bleakness. We can all use a little brightness in our lives.

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.
