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!

Cody & Amanda | Engaged Spring Engagement Session at The Market at Grelen in Somerset, Virginia

Sometimes as a photographer, there are couples that you are just so excited to meet and photograph at their engagement session! Cody & Amanda were definitely that way for me. I had really been looking forward to getting to know them, and I had the greatest time at their engagement session! They are both so genuine and caring – their love shines through the photos!

We had a few options for their session location, but ultimately they decided to go with The Market at Grelen! It was my first time shooting there, and I’m already dying to go back. So many cute places on their property – it’s a photographer’s dream!

We were a little concerned that it was going to be cold and cloudy all evening, but shockingly enough we got the most beautiful sunshine! It was still pretty chilly, and the wind was trying to whip the hair from our heads, but they handled it like pros!!

Cody & Amanda’s wedding is in just a few weeks, and I can’t wait to celebrate with them on their special day! Engagement sessions just make me that much more excited to be a part of one of the biggest days of their lives. Thank you both for trusting me with your memories!

Would you believe that they told me they don’t often take photos together? They’re definitely naturals in front of the camera!!


Love the one on the left!


Amanda, you are SO gorgeous!!
