Rachel and Austin and little Miss Eleanor met us on the chilliest winter day at a park in Waynesboro as the snow melted for a quick maternity session before their family of three grew into a family of four. It was cold but the winter light was DREAMY and that tall golden grass has never looked so good as it did around this radiant mama.

We loved officially meeting these three (who have lived in the same community as us for years) and it was such an honor to capture them celebrating this season together.

We started photographing the Wright family years ago when they were only a family of four and here we are capturing all SEVEN of them (our first time meeting the twins!!)! We got to explore the beautiful Big Spring Farm together and it was the most gorgeous backdrop for a film session. What a fun […]

Kat + Eric | Science Museum of Virginia | August 29, 2020 We first met the Pommer family about 5 years ago when we photographed Eric’s (the groom) sister’s wedding in Connecticut. We met the Pommer family and we met Eric’s girlfriend- there’s even a photo floating around of them on the dance floor. So […]

A + J were originally supposed to get married in Utah but when the pandemic hit they decided to hit the pause button on those plans. On a road trip through Virginia they stumbled across this brand new little vineyard on a mountain top right off the parkway and pulled off for a glass of wine. A fell in love instantly and J was ready to make her mountaintop dreams come true. The couple decided 12 Ridges was the perfect spot for an intimate Virginia wedding with their friends and family… and we agree.

12 Ridges Vineyard Wedding

We met Lauren and Rob at the University of Virginia grounds for their engagement session on the HOTTEST day last summer. We were sweating but no one was complaining and that is our favorite kind of couple. The kind that is too excited to be together to notice the heat. The kind who isn’t deterred from swapping a little sweat as they snuggle up. Most of our couples are nervous to be photographed (we can totally relate) but it’s even more typical to have a reluctant groom. Rob could never be put in that category! He was willing and ready to love on his girl from the moment he arrived and I think you can feel their joy and love in their portraits.

We’ve been looking forward to Gabe and Ellen’s Harrisonburg, Virginia engagement session since last summer, so we were bummed when we saw rain in the forecast on the day of their shoot. But somehow in the midst of the rainiest spring we can remember, the clouds parted, the rain held off, and the sun even […]

We’d been looking forward to Chelsea + Jeremiah’s rustic wedding at On Sunny Slope Farm for a long, long time. When we met C + J for our sunrise engagement session last spring we were still doing business as “Aaron Mallory Photography” and they hadn’t even chosen a wedding date or venue yet. We got to capture […]
