Yorktown Engagement Shoot

  • Derek + Amy | Engaged

know what you’re going to get with an engagement session in November. It could be a perfect 65 degrees or it could be a FREEZING day in the low 40’s! Luckily, we had a perfect day for Amy and Derek’s engagement session in Yorktown. For those of you that are not from Virginia, it’s ok to be jealous of all of our super photogenic locations. Virginia is pretty legit when it comes to having a wide array of shooting locations. We have beaches, mountains, historic plantations, river fronts and little quaint towns like Yorktown! I love this place! I wish we lived close because if we did,

Richmond Portrait Photography

  • Baby Mason

busy busy busy. We leave for our fall youth retreat and then I leave from the retreat to shoot my second to last weeding of the YEAR! I’m so excited for these last two weddings but I’m also excited for a break! 4 engagement sessions, 1 workshop and 2 weddings to go!  I can see the light!! So today is just a little post for a little man that has stole our hearts. Baby Mason was born on October 23rd and we actually got to see him and hold him on his actual BIRTHDAY! He’s tiny and cute. Michael and I love watching this new phase of like unfold for Seth and Em. The key word there is “watching”. We’re so not in the “baby” phase right now

The Fall Middleburg Wedding | The Briar Patch

  • Matt + Rebekah

I have to apologize. This post is SO late! It’s like 4:30 and I’m just now getting this up! Well, there is a reason it has taken me ALL day to blog this wedding…. I LOVED IT… and I have a million favorites and I really should narrow them down but I just can’t! Matt and Rebekah are such an amazing couple.  I have never shot a wedding where a couple’s family friends were so openly vocal about how these two need to be married! They’re perfect for each other and everyone is aware of that. After their pastor announced that they were officially husband and wife, guests started cheering. People rejoiced with them ALL day and celebrated their new marriage! These two were married on Sunday at the Briar Patch in Middleburg, VA.
