West Manor Estate Wedding | Lynchburg Wedding Photographer

  • Tyler + Amy

Something that I LOVE about Virginia is that there are SO many incredible wedding venues. Even after 5 years of shooting and over 120 weddings, I’m still shooting at new venues every season and it’s so exciting! I had never seen the property of West Manor Estate until last Friday when I arrived for Tyler and Amy’s wedding day! Let me just tell you… it’s STUNNING! This venue is so well thought out and so elegant in every way. It was the PERFECT setting for Tyler and Amy’s big day. Friends and family gathered around the property and before we knew it, it was show time! Amy’s youth pastor officiated the ceremony and because Michael used to do youth ministry, I couldn’t help but think about how awesome that must be to be a part of one of your youth group kids’ weddings! So special!! Tyler and Amy are such a sweet couple that are loved by so many.

May 2013

  • The Snapshot

MAY! And May is the month of transition for us! …. Probably one of the biggest transitions we’ve experienced since being married… besides Michael’s job transitions of course. We’re MOVING!! In like 3-4 weeks! Michael has been packing up our current home in his free time and let me tell you, it feels WEIRD!! Our living room just looks sad! Mirrors and pictures are off of the walls and boxes are piling up in the kitchen. It’s really starting to feel real! For those of you that have moved several times, we would love to hear your packing tips and tricks so that our move can be easy and organized!!!

Anyone Know a Great Window Washer?!

  • The New House

house post gave you a quick view of the FRONT of our new house… now it’s time for a view of the BACK! Honestly, I think I like the back better than the front!! …. I’m actually dead serious. As much as I love the stone… the back shows off the whole reason we picked this floor plan…. LIGHT! And LOTS of it!! As a photographer, I love LIGHT and little Cape Cods really don’t have much light to offer. So when we stepped foot into the model and saw the amount of windows that came STANDARD with this floor plan, we were in LOVE!! For those that have built a home in a subdivision, you know how annoying all of those “upgrades” can be.
