I first got to know Johanna when I was coaching field hockey at Lynchburg College. We are both Virginia Beach field hockey players and share a sincere love for the sport. She is a fun, outgoing, and amazingly smart person. When I met Justin, he was nothing short of what I expected. A gentlemen, and fun person to hang out with and someone who has dedicated a good amount of time to serving our country. Anyone who knows me, knows that although I am not from a military family, I have such strong gratitude for anyone who serves our country to help me and my family live a better life. We hung out for a few hours, drove around their little town and went to some local places to capture some beautiful images for them. Golden hour could not have been more beautiful on them. The sun coming over the hills was just perfect. We talked about hockey, my kids, their families, their legal ceremony they had the day before, and I even got to meet their adorable pup, Kelo. Kelo is one of the cutest dogs and he was super welcoming and friendly to me. I can’t say enough about how much I love getting to know my couples at a more intimate level. These wonderful people open up and share part of their story with me and it means so much to me.

I am looking forward to their 2017 wedding! I can’t wait until I get to hang out with them again, meet their families and celebrate them even more!

This Virginia Beach wedding was so unique and fun. It was smiles from beginning to end. Jenna and Nate shared their day with family and friends who definitely know how to have a good time! (See some reception highlights below!) They started the day at the oceanfront to get ready and followed that with a beautiful ceremony and reception at The Yacht Club at Marina Shores. It was full of color and joy. It’s clear how much they love their family and friends and how special their love is. I especially loved hearing toasts at this wedding, it allowed me a chance to hear about what truly wonderful people Jenna and Nate are. Jenna wore her mother’s wedding dress and her grandmother’s earrings. I mean, honestly, how awesome is that? Both of them were surrounded with hilarious bridal party and that made it even more fun. Did I mention how amazing all the dancing was? Might have been my favorite part of the day!

It’s such a joy being able to capture moments for people. It’s a job I do not take lightly and something I enjoy doing so much. I’m looking forward to all my weddings this year and next year. I love getting to meet new families and see their unique love. It’s something that never gets old.

I had a beautiful engagement session with Victoria and Christian a couple weeks ago. It’s so awesome to be able to do engagement photos with your wedding photographer, because it helps everyone reach a certain comfort zone. Honestly, I laughed so hard and they were so much fun to be around. It gave me a new sense of understanding how they are together (which is amazing), as well as who they are as people. We got together at West Manor Estate for the beginning of their session and ended up in Downtown Lynchburg. We ran into some of their friends and we had quite a photobomber experience downtown (sorry I don’t have pictures of that because I was trying to escort him out of the frame). They are going to be married this summer and I could not be happier for the two of them. The pictures so perfectly display their love and how much they make each other happy.

When I first got an inquiry from Sarah about photography, she had mentioned she recently relocated to Lynchburg from Charlotte. Well, you know I had to ask and hope that they were Panthers fans… and they are! Being married to one of the most dedicated Carolina Panther fans out there, I knew this was going to be the beginning of a great relationship! Things I learned about Sarah and Brian during their session is that Brian loved making her laugh and smile. They are incredible people, very warm and easy going.  We went to a few locations downtown and ended the evening at Point of Honor. It was a slightly overcast that day and the sun managed to sneak through the clouds just in time for some beautiful back light. I cannot wait to be a part of their wedding and watch them tie the knot in October at West Manor Estates!

Originally I had a beautiful maternity session scheduled for Henley’s parents, but baby girl had some other plans and came a little early. This ended up working out perfect because it meant I got to see her sweet face and spend a Saturday morning with her mom, dad, doggies and her! She was as sweet as could be. A long and tiny thing. The love joy she has clearly brought to so many people was obvious. Who doesn’t love a new baby? She already loves country music and her parents already new that, so that’s what was playing to help calm her down. She is just as beautiful as her mommy. When I look at the photos, I realize even more how a new baby can bring a new sense of gratitude for your spouse. The connection between all three of them was amazing. Thank you to Melissa and Chris for allowing me into their home to capture these fleeting moments. Just look at these few highlight photos… Is it love or what? Just look at that smile on her sweet face in the first set of photos. Welcome to the world sweet girl!
