Pippin Hill Farm Wedding | Charlottesville, Virginia Wedding Photographer

  • Dan + Katelyn

I walked into Pippin Hill’s gorgeous bridal suite and was greeted with a high pitched “Aw, Hi!!!!!!!!” from Katelyn! Katelyn is one of those brides that just makes you feel like a million bucks first thing on a wedding day! I just love her! And after a few minutes hanging out with her sweet family and friends, I fell in love with them too! As the wedding day went on, I learned so much about Dan and Katelyn. I knew that they were high school sweethearts but I never would have guessed that Dan had long hair at one point! Or that they had a long distance relationship for quite some time.Toast after toast, story after story, I started to see just how amazing their relationship is. People flew in from all over the world to celebrate with Dan and Katelyn and it was beautiful from beginning to end!

  • Matt + Meredith | Engaged

and I love our job. We love that we get to create ART… we love that we get to serve our amazing couples… and we also love that we meet so many amazing new friends in the industry. Last July we drove to Fredericksburg, Virginia and photographed Matt and Kat’s beautiful summer wedding! We worked alongside some incredible vendors… one of them being Matt from Matt Rouse Films! He was sweet, so easy to work with and his films are awesome! We love meeting new vendors…. but we love it even more when those vendors get engaged and contact us!! How lucky are we?!

  • Meet Abby

several people in my life that are always so much fun to be around! They are the type of people that make boring things entertaining, the people who can make sad moments less sad and the people who make exciting things 10X more exciting!!!!! Abby is one of those people. Her smile, her laugh and her sense of humor makes her so much fun to hangout with! Her whole family is that way! We love the Jones’!! We love them so much that we decided to build a house RIGHT next door to them!
