Kimberly + Hunter | Charlottesville Wedding

Kimberly and Hunter Wedding-1074I am so excited and honored to be able to share this wedding. On their big day, it didn’t take long to figure out how loved Kimberly and Hunter are by all of their family and friends. From all of the tears that were flowing when Kimberly’s father walked her down the aisle, to all of the heartfelt toasts during the reception (there were lots of them!)… their wedding day was filled with tons excitement and emotion all around! Their sweet pup Calvin even joined in for a little bit! Enjoy!

Lauren + Nick | CrossKeys Vineyards Wedding

Lauren and Nick Wedding-665The day could not have been more beautiful. The sun was shining, the temperature was pleasant, and the grounds at CrossKeys Vineyards surrounded by deep blue mountains made for an incredible setting for Lauren and Nick‘s wedding day. This wedding was special for me. I grew up with Lauren and in fact our parents still live across the street from each other! It was so great to be able to see these two become husband and wife! The day wasn’t just about Lauren and Nick though… Lauren’s sweet little boy Tucker was a huge part of the day. It was a celebration of the three of them becoming a family! Enjoy!

Kristin + Nolan | Frontier Culture Museum Wedding

Kristin and Nolan Wedding-634The day started dark and cloudy. The possibility of rain was around every corner. As I drove to Staunton for Kristin and Nolan’s wedding the sky opened up and it didn’t just rain… it poured. My heart sank a little bit for my couple. They had planned an outdoor ceremony! However, when I entered the bed and breakfast where Kristin and her bridesmaids were getting ready, everyone was smiling! There was so much energy and excitement in the room! Kristin looked absolutely stunning and she was so happy to finally be marrying her best friend. No amount of rain could ruin this day for her! The rest of the day ended up being gorgeous! It sprinkled here and there, but the rain held off and Kristin and Nolan had the wedding they had been dreaming of!

Asher | Newborn

2014-04-14_0001Meet Asher. He is the sweetest little guy! I was so happy to finally be able to meet him last weekend. It’s always so special to me when I get to see a family I’ve gotten to know through photography grow! If you recognize Asher’s family it’s because they have been on my blog before! Asher’s sweet brother Silas is almost two now, which I just can’t believe! He is a great big brother! I love this family and feel so blessed to be able to be there for these special moments!

Jennifer + Kemper | Blacksburg Elopement

2014-04-08_0001

I started off my wedding season this year with something a little different! When I got an email from Jennifer saying that she was planning on getting married on the Virginia Tech campus and the only people who were attending were her, her soon to be husband, and their officiant, I knew I wanted to be a part of it! The weather was such a mess. I woke up that morning with a text from Jennifer letting me know it was snowing and asking if I still wanted to come. She even joked that they could just take pictures with their cell phones! :) I believe that every wedding, no matter how small, deserves amazing pictures… so I headed to Blacksburg! By the time I arrived, it was barely snowing anymore but it was windy and so so cold! Jennifer and Kemper were such troopers! The wedding ceremony was very short but very sweet and special. Then we headed around campus to take pictures at some of their favorite locations! 

Jennifer and Kemper, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day! Congratulations!

Products | New Sample Album

2014-03-31_0001When I first started photographing weddings, I didn’t really offer albums. I had a company I sort of liked so I had an album made and I just wasn’t truly happy with it. Last year I decided I needed to get my act together and really offer my clients something more. Something I was happy with as the photographer. Something I could be truly proud of and excited to show my clients!!! I had several friends who had used Madera and were very happy with them, so I decided to give them a try and let me tell you… I’m so happy I did!  

With digital photography so popular most people end up with their wedding pictures on a disc, flash drive, or just sitting on their computer. Beautiful images deserve so much more than that! You as a couple work SO HARD on your wedding day, and your photographer works SO HARD to give you an amazing experience and gorgeous images! They should be on display for everyone to see! I think that a beautiful, high quality album is an amazing way to do that!

I chose to showcase Liz and Clarke‘s amazing wedding in my new sample album! All albums come in these incredible leather cases!
