A Purple and Grey Stevenson Ridge Wedding

  • David + Emily

Maybe it was the beautiful venue… or the incredibly sweet first look…. or Emily’s dad’s ability to simultaneously scare you and crack you up with his sarcasm…. whatever it was, Friday’s beautiful Stevenson Ridge wedding was a BLAST to be a part of. David and Emily captured my heart instantly during their engagement session back in the fall and I have been looking forward to their wedding day for QUITE some time now! I remember driving to their engagement session right after leaving a meeting about possibly building the new house… CRAZY how much can happen in 6 months right?! It’s also crazy what can happen in ONE DAY! After the span of 30 minutes, David and Emily went from being engaged to promising FOREVER to one another!! Just like that, they were husband and wife and a beautiful new family was formed! The excitement on both of their faces when they were announced as Mr. and Mrs. Roop was priceless!

A Fawn Lake Engagement | Fredericksburg Wedding Photographer

  • Travis + Amy | Engaged

on this blog post and listening to CHRISTMAS music!! Is it too early for that?? ha! I seriously love this time of year…. especially in Virginia. The colors around here are amazing… even after a hurricane!! Michael and I met Travis and Amy at her parent’s home on Fawn Lake in Fredericksburg for their eshoot last week and we were pleasantly surprised that Sandy’s wrath didn’t make a huge impact on the backyard!  It was a great location for their engagement shoot!! It was almost surreal being there because Amy is one of our sweet CNU friends and I remember being a little college freshman

A Downtown Fredericksburg Engagement

  • Beau + Jourdan | Engaged

a little under the weather the past 4 or 5 days but I’ve been trying to hide it pretty well. There’s nothing that can ruin the mood of a wedding or an engagement shoot than a sniffling photographer! So I’ve been downing some Airborne, sleeping in an extra 30 minutes or so and I’ve almost finished off a whole bottle of Simply Orange Mango! (That stuff is good!).  Gratefully, I’m starting to feel better! Beau and Jordan had to listen to me clear my throat and sound like a man during their engagement session but they were kind enough to say “Oh, you don’t sound bad!”… But I did.  They are just as sweet
