  • Downtown Roanoke Engagement Shoot

how I had never been to Roanoke before. You you’ve lived in the same state your whole life, you would think that I would have at least driven through Roanoke at some point but I hadn’t! I heard people mention Roanoke and I thought to myself, “Oh, it must be a little town in the mountains”.  I had no idea what to expect! As I drove into the city at 7:45am last Thursday, I was shocked to find that Roanoke is a CITY!! Complete with tall buildings, one way streets and A LOT of hills! Since this was a sunrise shoot (my first one actually!), I was proud of myself for finding my way there!  We all know that mornings are not my favorite part of the day

 

A Recap

  • The Pursuit 31 Conference 2012

supposed to describe an extraordinary week filled with people I love, new friends, amazing sessions, incredible worship and GREAT food all in one blog post?? It’s simply impossible. There is no way I could possibly share everything that I learned and experienced at the Pursuit 31 Conference here on this blog.  I guess that means those of you who are curious will just have to come NEXT YEAR and find our for yourselves!! Seriously though, you should go. Yes, this is a christian women’s conference but if you’re someone who would describe yourself as “I’m not really sure I know where I stand with all the “God” stuff”… you should come….

Whitney's Bridals

  • Windsor Castle, Smithfield Wedding Photographer

don’t happen very often for me and so when I have one booked, I’m pumped!  It’s such a southern tradition and I know so many photographers in the Carolina’s that shoot them for EVERY bride! It’s a fun shoot but it does take some prep work for the bride and so I understand why most opt out of the shoot. I shoot bridal portraits on the day of the wedding but if you’re wanting a canvas displayed at your reception, a bridal session is a must! :) Whitney’s session could be described as “A piece of cake”. Seriously! We shot this session in record time because we had a late start and the sun was setting FAST!
