I am so excited that you're here! This is where I share my latest sessions, personal photos, and funny life stories. You'll quickly hear about my obsessive cleaning habits, my adorable pup, and probably a little something about fruit pizza (only the best food ever created). So grab a drink (something iced for me... yes, even in the winter), and scroll through the archives!

Blake & Jessica | Married Rustic Wedding at Faithbrooke Barn & Vineyard in Luray, Virginia

I am so thrilled to share this blog post! Last Saturday was just the perfect wedding day. It featured a donut truck, s’mores, and their puppy as the flower girl! This wedding is going to make you so happy, just by looking at the pictures! When a couple is truly joyful, it shines through in their wedding photos.

From the moment that I stepped inside Hotel Laurance, I was amazed! Everywhere you look is incredible architecture, stunning rooms, and so many fun and unique pieces. And as you’ll see, I was quite obsessed with the Parlour room in particular :)

After spending the morning at the hotel, we headed over to Faithbrooke for the ceremony and reception. Blake & Jessica spent so much time and effort making it so personalized to them, and just all around perfect! They couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day. The vineyards made for an incredible backdrop, and the clouds were gorgeous all day! And right as we started to take bride & groom portraits, the sun came out! Perfect, right??

Blake & Jessica, you two are truly wonderful together! Your story is so beautiful, and you are both absolutely meant to be. Thank you for allowing me to be there to capture your day!

Jess and her father had such an emotional First Look! I think we were all tearing up!


At Blake & Jessica’s engagement session, Blake mentioned how much he wanted a golden retriever! I told him about the golden retriever farm that’s near my house. They visited the farm, and a few weeks later they brought Roma home!! They didn’t realize it at the time, but Roma’s birthday is actually their wedding date! It was absolutely meant to be. I actually feel a little like Roma’s unofficial godmother for introducing them to the farm ;)


Ahhhh! Donut truck time!!
