Nate + Catherine

  • Virginia Winery Wedding | Virginia Wedding Photographer

skies were overcast…. and I was excited!! What does that mean? Well let me tell you! It means I could shoot anywhere I wanted for Nate and Catherine’s First Look! FREEDOM!!! Woohoo! I love overcast days so much! The colors are brighter, the light is awesome and it’s not as HOT! This day was starting perfectly and it continued to get better and better. I started with the girls in an adorable country cabin down the road from the venue. I knew most of these girls from CNU and so I had been looking forward to this time with them for a while! Catherine casually walked around the little cabin with her hair and makeup done, not stressed at all. She is the epitome of a simple, classy bride. Her style was so HER

Craig + Bev | Engaged

  • Virginia River Boathouse Wedding Photographer

no clue how to start this post. Who do I talk about first? Craig, who I’ve known since middle school? Or Bev, the girl that let me spend the night in her room so I could come and visit Michael after he left for college. Both Bev and Craig are so close to my heart and I’m really  having a hard time trying to explain how amazing these two are in words.  You just need to meet them. If you were to hang out with them you would realize that 1. Bev has the most gorgeous smile and a joyful laugh that comes with it, 2. Craig is a pro at making Bev laugh, 3. They LOVE the Lord and 4. they are perfect for each other
