Small Town Love | Brides + Grooms

A little town rallied together for an amazing cause this weekend. One of my grooms from 2012, Brent Mason has been going through more than I can imagine dealing with oral cancer and his incredible, beautiful and selfless wife Stephanie who does nothing but put EVERYone else first has been by his side the whole…

Amanda + Chris | Smithfield Windsor Castle Engagements

I think when I posted my Facebook check in that I couldn’t believe I haven’t shot here before..people just about fell out, haha! How could I have NEVER shot out here? I mean the answer’s simple..no one has asked me to! Even though it’s the PERFECT rustic and Southern location with the barns and scenery,…

Jessica + Hugh | Coral + Blue Southampton County Wedding

It’s been one of the most lovely experiences to work with Jessica and Hugh from day one, and I felt a bittersweet emotion of sadness come over me on their wedding day because I knew our shooting events had come to an end..and I LOVE working with them! Jessica’s first email and every one in…

Jessica | Southampton County Bridals

It’s been torture holding on to these images– I loved them and the setting and the VERY cool prop so much! Jessica’s family was there helping out, her sweet grandpa who owns the car was even a part of the shoot because I definitely caught him trying to help fluff her dress out!!!!!!! 🙂 It…

Stephanie + Brent | Southampton County Anniversary

Last February in Southampton County, two lovebirds tied the knot at the Rock Church. They had a big fun bridal party and an awesome reception down the road with some of the most fun guests dancing I’ve seen in a while, I LOVED their day! Since then we have seen each other for another session…

Morgan + Austin | Southampton County Engagements

One of my favorite places to shoot ever. Southampton County is full of beautiful open fields and broken down homes with history, and then you take another turn and you’re somewhere else abandoned and simply beautiful. Austin has family in the area and although he and Morgan both live in Hampton Roads currently, they decided…

Jessica + Hugh | Southampton County Engagements

This post is pretty much going to speak for itself, but allow me to speak a little first 🙂 Hugh and Jessica have been together for EIGHT years, they’re high school sweethearts! So, immediately after hearing that I was thinking ohhh this session feels even sweeter now! My husband is from Southampton County and went…

Wedding Year In Review | Wedding Photography

I truly had tears in my eyes picking out these images, every time I look at them, I remember the day. I remember so much of it, some hilarious inside jokes I now have with the families and couples, some catastrophies that ended up fixing themselves before the I Do’s (don’t worry couples— everything ALWAYS…

Susan | Virginia Beach Bridal Photographer

SUSAN!!!!!!!! The smile and laugh that lights up all rooms! I adore her 🙂 🙂 🙂 Like crazy and wild adore her! I am so lucky to have met such a bright spirit to light up my life! Now that she’s hitched, I can share the bridals 🙂 The wedding hopefully won’t follow too long…

Finally, part two is here! If you didn’t catch Part One of Amber & Chad’s gorgeous Surry wedding, here is the link. These two have the most genuine love and tons of affection for each other, it’s so warming to be around them! Their families are amazing, too- and the whole day was a blast…

Amber | Southampton County Bridal Photographer

Okay, so when it rained in January during their engagements…I didn’t think we could possibly get that kind of luck for the next shoot, which were Amber’s bridals. Not only did it RAIN, it poured down so intensely I had to pull over off of Main Street in Franklin because I couldn’t see ANYTHING! I…
