Erin and Brian […]

Every single tiny detail planned to the utmost perfection, blending hers and his in one heck of a celebration at The […]

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 […]

Chrysler Museum of Art Wedding | Stephanie & Willie

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.

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 […]
