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? It could be another 8-12 months before we see each other again!!! After rescheduling because of a stupid Hurricane wind effect spin off who knows kind of weather, these two […]

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. […]

Founders Inn Wedding | Mason & Kristen

  The forecast had 0% chance of rain and when I pulled up my Dark Sky app while I was standing AT the Founders Inn and still 0% and I was outside in a light mist. I walked into the calmest getting ready room, where Kristen and her girls were relaxing waiting for me! Bopping […]

Guys, I am LOVING that my blog has been taken over by maternity sessions! Since that door is closed for me it’s always a treat to chat with soon to be mommas (for the first, second or more time!) about it all! I think it is INCREDIBLE to see what God can and let’s be […]

Basic Invite | Wedding Invitation Inspo

Have you ever thought what is a guests first inclination of what your day would be like? The thing that sets the tone for it? It is hands down your wedding invitation!! It lets guests have a sneak into your “theme” or “colors” and how formal or relaxed it will be! I love to see […]

  I’ve always been very vocal about being a mom was the one thing I wanted to be when I grew up. I didn’t really care much about anything else except wanting kids. Coming from a large family (I’m the oldest of 6 in case you’re new around here!!) having my own family unit at […]

When Dan’s best man stood to give his speech, he admitted he had so much more he wanted to say but his words were falling short. Today I am sharing the same sentiments about their Marriott Ranch wedding in Hume, Virginia! What a testament to the kind of people Daniel and Katelynn are that they […]

East Beach Engagements | Erik & Meredith

If you would have told me two years ago my calendar for 2018 would be FULL of incredible brides and guys who just are totally dreamies, I would have laughed at you but here I sit and jokes on me (thankfully!). Meredith and Erik are one of my couples with Katelyn from Haddy Ever After […]

I could hardly believe it going through all these pictures that Kara, the quiet girl from Dance Magic who everyone liked, was now actually a bride and had emailed ME about it! I’m confused how she grew up and I’m still the same age ;D When we were planning their session, Kara really wanted to […]

Holly Ridge Manor Anniversary | Keith & Courtney

You might be browsing this post and say, where are all the other wedding photos?? My reply to that is there are none 😉 Courtney and Keith have been married almost three years, but she emailed me that she never really loved her wedding pictures. She wanted images she could love and since her dress […]

Norfolk Botanical Gardens Engagements | Daniel & Katelynn

It is no secret that distance can make the heart grow fonder but let’s be real: sometimes the distance just plain stinks. Meet Daniel & Katelynn, two people who are making the distance work for the short time! Daniel met Katelynn while they were both in college, him studying to go back into the Marines […]

There is something to be said about shooting a wedding in the brutal July heat and when you reminisce on it, the heat is the last thing you remember. I remember walking into Stephanie’s childhood home and her waving frantically with the biggest smile on her face. I’ll always remember her momma telling her she […]

Woman’s Club of Portsmouth Wedding | Chris & Brittani

Sunday was the perfect day for a wedding at Portsmouth Woman’s Club. We have been experiencing brutal heat in the Hampton Roads area the past two weeks, which forced Chris and Brittani to move their ceremony inside versus the lawn. I feel like the theme of their day was “be flexible”! These two were so […]
