Highlights

  • Engagements 2010

that it has been a YEAR since some of these sessions. How did 2010 fly by SO fast?! Wow. I’m sitting there looking through these images and I can’t help but realize how much I have been blessed this past year in my business.  I’ve  had amazing clients and opportunities throughout 2010 and I’m so thankful. This job is so much more than just creating beautiful images….it’s about the people…..the beautiful people that believe in me and allow me to share life with them. I cannot express how incredibly thankful I am for my 2010 couples. You have truly blessed my life and have reminded me of why I LOVE photography and PEOPLE!

  • Ajith + Catherine


a new tradition…. to second shoot a wedding at the beginning of each year! (Jessie, are you up for that?!).  It was so much fun! …. like really. Second shooting is how I started and I remember 3 years ago, I was following Jessie around, hoping not to screw up at my first wedding! Because this wasn’t my wedding, I wasn’t in charge and because I wasn’t in charge… I got to be extra creative and I LOVED IT! I tried some new things with light, details, poses and for the most part I liked the way everything turned out (some of my ideas are always a little weird….ask Jess, she’d agree!)  So I can’t thank Jessie enough for putting up with me! I love shooting with

  • Graham + Erin | Engaged

believe there was still snow on the ground last week for Erin and Graham’s engagement session! I loved it. My e-sessions this winter have had such a fun winter-y look to them because of ALL the snow! Graham and Erin are actually from Charleston, SC and needed some engagements done while they were up near Erin’s hometown in Nelson County, VA. I’m sure the patches of ice and snow were not what they were used to. Can you imagine living in Charleston!? That place is so gorgeous and the weather is wonderful! If I ever get asked to shoot a wedding down there I think I might just do it for free because I would be on cloud 9
