A Country Engagement Shoot | Goochland, VA


you love it when wonderful people come into your life in the most random, unexpected ways?! It’s the best!! Close to a year and a half ago, Michael and I were on the journey to find a new house. We saw a listing for a pre-existing home in Goochland and so we took a little drive to go see if it had potential. We were excited because it was in our budget and had a unique floor plan. However, we were quickly disappointed when we drove past and saw the “sold” sign in the front yard. So we kept driving and found a new subdivision with a model home that we absolutely LOVED! We signed a contract 5 days later and

Brandon + Brittany | Engaged

A Lake Gaston Engagement Shoot


emailed me a few months ago and we weren’t available for their date and I apologized. And then I got the email that just baffled me. Brittany responded and said “No worries, we’re going to change our date!”. What?! This has happened before but every time a bride changes her plans in order to have us photograph this season of their life, I’m just amazed. I’m humbled and honored. What a huge compliment!! These two are awesome! We met at Brittany’s family’s lake house and then drove to some local locations for their shoot.

Michael + Brittany | Engaged

Historic Aldie, Virginia Engagement Shoot

I have

decided that I’ll never be able to shoot in every beautiful location in Virginia… there are SO many adorable towns in this state! I have driven through Aldie and Middleburg several times in the last few years and it’s a gorgeous area!! The rolling hills and historic homes are stunning! It was the perfect location for Michael and Brittany’s engagement session!! I met Brittany almost a year ago but we have been exchanging emails for a while now!! She has been looking forward to her engagement and wedding pictures for some time and I’m so thankful that we had the most beautiful day to shoot them!

Matt + Libby | Engaged

An Annapolis, MD Engagement Shoot


anyone noticed just how many “MATT’s” have been on the blog recently?! It’s a popular name this year for KJ Couples!! Matt and Libby met us in Annapolis for their engagement shoot last Friday. They came prepared! They had a bunch of family members alongside of them to be on doggie duty and help set up their super cute styled picnic! Talk about an awesome family!! I loved getting to know these two as we walked around the park. This wasn’t just any park… this is where Matt and Libby had shared countless dates. Picnics, frisbee, dog walks… this was one of their “spots”.

Dan + Katelyn | Engaged

A Charlottesville Engagement Session | Belle Haven


are some couples that I meet and instantly click with. Dan and Katelyn would definitely fall into that category. We met at beautiful Belle Haven plantation outside of Charlottesville and we were greeted by the property owner’s labradoodle! I’ve shot at this location before and so I was ready for the furry greeting. We chatted for a few minutes and then we started shooting. Dan and Katelyn just get it. They wanted pictures that showed THEM and their love and that’s my specialty!!
