I am SO over-the-moon thrilled to be a part of this sweet and beautiful couple’s wedding day next year!!! Jenna the second I saw you I KNEW you would be a stunner for my camera and then Andrew walks around the corner and I think yep — tall and handsome, this couple has it totally in…

Vicky + Matt | Duck Engagements

She has been absolute sunshine since the first email, and any time we are lucky enough to book an Outer Banks wedding for such a cheerful and genuine couple, we are BEYOND thankful!!! Vicky and Matt are teachers (what did I say? teachers and nurses are my PEOPLE!!) and we were so fortunate enough to…

Lauren + Ryan | Alexandria Engagements

Lauren and Ryan, where do you want to shoot while we’re here in Alexandria? Do you have anything in mind? Nope, we’re pretty laid back…we can do whatever! Okay, I love you already, haha! I love how my couples are incredibly diverse…some are like okay here’s the plan and here are twenty ideas I have…and…

Carly + Charlie | Downtown Richmond Engagements

When I got Carly’s email, I told Mike….I hope SO much she books with us!!! I had already known her name from being in Mike’s hometown circle of friends and she is just as sweet as can be. That energy you can actually feel in an email, and that’s a rare quality in a world of…

Katie + Trey | Alexandria Engagements

One of my favorite things that couples do is make their wedding all about having a TEAM dynamic. Katie and Trey have a wedding email address that is completely adorable and combines their names, but the first word of it is team…and it’s made me literally start calling them this name in my mind ALL…

Hannah + Tommy | Georgetown DC Engagements

I have to start this blog post by telling you that I LOVE HANNAH. And now that I’ve met and talked to him, I love Tommy, too!!!! And of course I could tell by the email from the beginning that Hannah was going to be two things through this process..kind and cheerful. She is SO happy…

Laura + EJ | Kitty Hawk Engagements

I have the weirdest memory and it’s very selective, but I know for the rest of my life it’s going to remember the way that EJ and Laura met and how that whole relationship started. When we were standing on the beach and they were telling me the story, I remember saying “no way!!!” and…

Amanda + Matt | Kitty Hawk Engagements

When I came up with the word cheerful to describe my brand, my clients, the way I felt photographing clients…it was because of couples just like Amanda and Matt. The contagious cheer in this session is what I live for, it’s what pushes my creativity and boundaries and makes me want to be a better, well, everything! Not…

Robyn + Mark | Virginia Beach Couples Session

There are so many images with real moments of laughter in this blog that I had to actually “tone it down” when it came to blogging too many, and that is NOT a bad problem to have! Look at these belly laughs! Look at Robyn on her tippy toes. Look at that perfect squeeze hug…

Kirsten + Matt | Wanchese + Pea Island Engagements

I’ve been talking a lot about the weather lately, and I think most of us here in the NC/VA area can agree on one thing. May is VERY confused. Like not the normal “it’s a little cold” here and there confused, but like freezing, then burning up, then stealing April’s showers left and right because…

Jamey + Spencer | Hatteras Engagements

Mike called on his break that day from work…are you still shooting today? He knew I was nervous, the thunder rumbled and the lightening was striking in Kitty Hawk on Friday afternoon and all this little mama wanted was sunshine and warm weather for Jamey and Spencer to be able to have the BEST experience…

Molly + Brendan | Yorktown Waterfront Engagements

Okay Molly and Brendan, you have completely stolen my heart! The two of you are not only some of the most adorable people I’ve ever seen but you are so, so, so down to Earth and you treated me like we had been friends for years. I’m walking off at the end of the session…
