Barren Ridge Vineyard Wedding | Erin & Brian

Every once in a awhile a wedding day throws us the weather trifecta: rain, sun, clouds. It’s always so bizarre when it happens because as you go through images it seems like the day happened over a weekend versus just a few hours! That’s the case with this Barren Ridge Vineyard wedding! Erin and Brian […]

It feels like forever since I sat in Starbucks with Carter (where we showed up in matching outfits!) and heard about her wedding day plans, big band and white dinner jackets with florals galore. Every single tiny detail planned to the utmost perfection, blending hers and his in one heck of a celebration at The […]

In the fall I sat down at Starbucks across from these two and Madison pulled out her Pinterest board. As she scrolled up and showed me all the beach things that were inspiring her, she had unknowingly pinned images of MINE! I finally laughed and said “These are my pictures!!” and she had no clue!!

Legacy Outdoor Styled Shoot

I love doing styled shoots with my friend Misty of Misty Saves the Day! I’m a huge advocate of doing them for yourself, for good reason and with good heart so when I come to her with an idea she knows I mean business!! Styled shoots are quite the time (and financial!!) investment, so if […]

The Hermitage Museum & Gardens Engagements | Cary & Carter

Ah my LAST engagement session of the season!!! What an incredible year it’s been between weddings and 2018 engagements, maternity sessions and the countless other portrait sessions I don’t share here on the blog because I would be a good 5 months behind on blogging!

Pleasure House Point Engagements | Collin & Christina

You know the best part about engagement sessions is always finally getting to meet my bride and groom in person (usually!!) but the worst part?

When Andrew and Meg started planning their engagement session, she just wanted it to feel like FALL. We originally were hoping for a pumpkin patch but on a Sunday in October all the ones around are either closed or JAM PACKED so we scratched that idea and turned to the newly renovated New Earth Farm.
