Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia: Kelsey + Ryan’s Engagement Session

By the end of Kelsey and Ryan’s Blue Ridge Parkway engagement session, we felt like old friends. So much so that we called an audible and went out to dinner at Devil’s Backbone (one of our FAVORITES) so the party didn’t have to end! Once upon a time, we met each of our couples face-to-face […]

Old Town Alexandria, Virginia: Shilla + Joon Ho Engagement Session

Shilla and Joon Ho’s Old Town Alexandria engagement session was so fun! Cobblestone streets, ivy covered alleyways, fountains in the square, the waterfront, and so much more. Aaron and I had never visited this area before so we owned the saying, ‘not all who wander are lost’. We wandered to our hearts content… and til […]

Charlottesville, Virginia: Jefferson Vineyard | Irvine Family Session

Our fall has been FULL. Full of moving. Full of working full time. Full of traveling all over the state for engagement sessions. Full of a growing business. Full of ripping up carpet and other house renovations. FULL. But it hasn’t been too full to catch up with some of our favorite families. These are […]

Roanoke, Virginia: Kostayne and Eric’s Engagement Photos

Kostayne and Eric’s Roanoke Engagement session was a nice little hometown tour. Hometown because that’s where I grew up; tour because we make quite the circuit around town. We got to take in the beautiful Roanoke skyline, grab a quick drink in a local downtown spot, wander through the ginkgo trees, visit the famous Roanoke […]

Downtown Staunton, Virginia : Tony and Lydia Engagement Session

Staunton is home to Tony and Lydia, so shooting their engagement session downtown was perfect. It was a little chilly when we met them at sunrise, but Tony kept Lydia laughing all morning and we heard no complaints. We wandered around some of our favorite spots and found some new favorites. Staunton is the sweetest […]

Charlottesville, Virginia : Monticello Trail | Hutchinson Family Session

The last time we met the Hutchinson family at Monticello Trail, it was spring-time and Maeve was much smaller. These three are the sweetest family and we were honored when they asked us to capture their family again this fall.   I work with little people all day, everyday, so it’s not hard to speak […]

Crozet, Virginia | Sarah + Michael Senior Session

Sarah and Michael’s Crozet, Virginia senior session has to be one of our favorites so far! Not only are they fun and full of personality… but there are TWO of them! TWINS! They have that special twin-ness about them, while being wildly different in their personalities and interests. We loved that we got to shoot […]

Lydia Mountain Lodge | Stanardsville, Virginia | Kelly + Jonathan

Kelly and Jonathan’s Lydia Mountain Lodge wedding felt just like the two of them. Hurricane Joaquin couldn’t do anything to lessen the sweetness of the day. When I talked to Kelly the week of her wedding (with the weatherman predicting a 100% chance of rain on her wedding day) she was calm and unaffected. She […]

Afton Mountain Vineyards | Charlottesville, Virginia | Trish + Alex

A little over a week ago, Alex and Trish became husband and wife on a quiet, overcast day at Afton Mountain Vineyards. When Alex and Trish invited us to capture this season, we were honored. These two have a special, calm, confident love and we knew their day would be special (and we have a […]

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church | Ivy, Virginia | Lydia + Chase

Lydia and Chase’s St. Paul’s Episcopal Church wedding in Ivy, Virginia was a beautiful and classy affair. When we heard that this sweet couple’s reception would be held in the church’s fellowship hall a space like this one never crossed our minds- in fact I don’t even know that we could have dreamed it up. […]
