Laura + EJ | Crosskey Vineyards Mountain Wedding

When we arrived near JMU, there was this first welcoming feeling of true fall in the air. We’d been waiting on it, and although it feels like fall to us on the Outer Banks when it hits the 60’s…it’s usually pretty salty in the air still so it’s not quite that dry, crisp fall feeling I…

Molly + Brendan | Elegant Inn at Warner Hall Wedding

I start writing and deleting and writing and deleting…I can’t seem to not ramble about this couple and I can’t let it take away from the blog images, so I’m going to work really hard to summarize and narrow this one down! First of all, Molly’s dad hugged me toward the end of the reception…

Courtni + Matt | Suffolk Maternity Session

Last year at Bull Run Winery, I had the pleasure of being surrounded by this incredibly joyful group of people all ranting and raving about the couple of the day. They were their cheerleaders, closest friends and supporters and when you see them, you will totally get why. They are THAT couple that totally flirts…

Sachel + Ethan | Aqua Trump Winery Brunch Wedding

There are novels to be written about these two. They have a love story like no other, but take one look at the way they look at each other and you feel like you’re already let in on a little slice of their heaven because love doesn’t often look THIS good, this natural and this…

Hannah + Sebastian | Red Wing Park Virginia Beach Engagements

When a couple flirts, I am happy..and when they genuinely laugh together, I am even happier…but when they have THIS look?! The one of complete joy and contentment that you know only comes from finding your soul mate and best friend..that is the look I long for in a couple, and Hannah and Sebastian have…

Courtney + Bonn | The Oyster Farm on the Eastern Shore

Sometimes I get really emotional writing these, well, I usually do..because I just feel this beautiful connection to all of my clients. They are a couple who fell in love hard, decided to make it officially official and I was the one who got to document it– that is HUGE. I’m not sure all photographers…

2014 Year In Weddings! | Weddings

Don’t be lame Amanda your humor is always awful and only my husband and one of the bridesmaids in this wedding, Megan, get it! I’m so corny but really this couple…
