Garrett + Rachel

  • An Oak Ridge Estate Wedding | Virginia Wedding Photographer

I feel like I should pinch myself! Looking back over the last two years, my blog has been full of our friend’s weddings!! First of all, it’s amazing to see all of these amazing couples starting their lives together and secondly, I’m just honored that I have been able to be a part of them!! It’s an awesome feeling to be able to serve my friends in this way and I’m so thankful I was able to be a part of Garrett and Rachel’s wedding day! This wedding day was so incredible to watch because I remember sitting on the couches at our campus bakery shop talking with Rachel about when this day would come. She was only a freshman and she had really only seen Garrett from a distance… but she liked him.

  • Happy Anniversary Michael

Can you believe this? Today, two years ago… at this very moment, I was getting my hair done and trying not to freak out because the wind was blowing all of our centerpieces over!! You were hanging out at your house with your best friends and we were preparing for our wedding day. 10.10.10 had been talked up for over a YEAR with all of family and friends. It was a big day… a MONUMENTAL day!!  We waited almost a decade for this!!  As the day went on, I met you for our first look and we got teary eyed just enough to make my fake eyelashes fall off.  We took our portraits with Jasmine and JD and that hour seemed

Brian + Whitney

  • A Peach & Gold Williamsburg Wedding | Williamsburg Wedding Photographer

i looked at my “production” chart where all of my 2012 weddings are listed and I couldn’t believe that 3/4th’s of them have been shot!! It seems like just yesterday I was driving back from Brian and Whitney’s engagement shoot in Williamsburg!! The days and weeks fly by when you’re busy! As I prepped for their big day, I was excited because I’ve already seen Whitney in her gorgeous gown since she did a bridal session and I know how photogenic she is!! It was going to be a GOOD day. I just knew it!  Michael was able to accompany me for this wedding and it always makes it better to have a side kick…. especially when your side kick is your husband. :) It was a beautiful day from beginning to end.
