Aaron + Katie

  • Historic Kinloch Wedding Photographer

red and black color scheme… or the Bridsemaid’s tall heels and bold jewelry… but something about this wedding makes me think of Rock and Roll. So even though that wasn’t the theme, I’ll probably always refer to Aaron and Katie’s wedding as the Rock and Roll wedding. It was bright and bold and the weather was absolutely perfect! The guys wished it was a few degrees cooler but they always say that. I’ll take a sunny, 78 degree wedding any day!  Aaron and Katie were married at the Historic Kinloch in Caret, Virginia. The ceremony took place outside under the willow tree just as the sunlight was turning into a soft, golden glow. It was beautiful.

Wedding Wednesday

  • Featured Post | Shyndigz

like me, I had big dreams and huge ideas but no way of knowing how to make those ideas come to life. If I wanted gorgeous arrangements as my centerpieces, where do I order vintage birdcages in bulk? And where can I find large quantities of olive green moss…. not FOREST GREEN… Olive green. (I was very specific) I knew what I wanted in my head but it was really hard to find all the right pieces to make it happen. Finding local vendors that have creative vision and a love for trying something new is the BEST way to make awesome ideas happen!

Promo Film Shoot | Part I

  • Rustic Downtown Engagement Shoot

know, Josh Gooden and I have been working on a project since early spring and I just announced that my PROMO VIDEO was done! Yessss!! (You can view it here too!)I still get so excited when I think about how LONG I have wanted to get this accomplished. It feels good to check that off the “Branding to-do” list! When I was preparing for this I knew exactly who to ask to be my models. Ali, Manny, Buddy and Jill are all amazing friends of ours from college and they are also clients. Their weddings were two of my all time favorites and all four of them are so natural in front of the camera.
