I am so excited to share this gorgeous Roanoke wedding with you! Kayleigh and Robert were married in early June at Roanoke Country Club and it was absolutely beautiful. When I first met up with Kayleigh and Robert we shared tacos at Azul in Bedford. I learned lots of things including Robert’s love for rap music and Kayleigh’s quiet nature. They absolutely compliment each other in this way. Kayleigh has an amazing dry humor about her and I loved spending the day with their family and friends. It was one of the most entertaining groups of people and I love when weddings bring constant laughs and happy people.

Since most of my weddings are all across the great state of Virginia, going to Roanoke for the day was a real treat. Roanoke Country Club is tucked into a perfect setting with mountain views and a perfectly kept golf course. This June wedding did not disappoint with all the lush greens and beautiful backdrops. I think it is a fantastic place to have a wedding. On the wedding day everyone was calm and cool and we were able to spend a lot of time with the wedding party and families taking portraits which was so fun. They also had The Kings play fabulous live music at the reception – they were amazing! Having known each other since high school, they had lots of friends from the area joining in on the celebration.

Kayleigh’s uncle had spent a lot of time restoring her grandfather’s Model T and that was so special. They ended their night with a perfect sparkler send off in the fabulous car. Thank you Kayleigh and Robert for having me at your wedding! I adored spending time with your family and friends and celebrating your day!

Grace & Robert’s beautiful Virginia wedding at Wolftrap Farm was absolutely perfect. Having just completed his time at the United States Naval Academy, Robert wrapped up the weekend by marrying his love on Memorial Day. Quite fitting if you ask me!

When I first met Grace we chatted over Mellow Mushroom and talked about more than just her plans for the day. We shared stories about our families and our parents. We connected and I adored her. She has a completely unique style and once you spend five minutes with her, you can’t help but love her. Fast forward to October of last year and I met up with both of them for an amazing Charlottesville engagement session at sunrise – you should definitely check it out here. We spent the morning with the sun and then ran over to the local farmer’s market to check out all the goods. It was such a blast. Even then, I had no idea how hilarious Robert was. About ten minutes into hanging out with Robert on their wedding day, I couldn’t believe how much I was laughing. Literally everything he said had me trying to hide my embarrassingly deep roar or laughter.

Wolftrap Farm is a beautiful venue located in Gordonsville, VA just outside of Charlottesville. It is tucked away down a gravel road and it is a gorgeous escape into rolling hills and a working farm. During reception Grace changed into the cutest jumpsuit and they partied the night away. So much love on this amazing day. I am so excited to follow their life and adventures. Grace writes a blog and you can follow along too! It’s called Wandering By Grace.

To Grace and Robert – thank you for being you. You are one of a kind. Your family and friends are wonderful and I am so thankful to have been a part of your special wedding day.

This day was a gorgeous Virginia wedding held right in the heart of wine country in Charlottesville, Virginia. It was an absolute joy to be with Coco and Chip all day. When we did their engagement session last July, I learned so much about them. They were so open and welcoming and they shared their story with such awe for each other. This was exactly how their wedding day was as well. They genuinely and sincerely adore each other like no other.

I am so honored to have been there for their gorgeous wedding in Charlottesville. It was a perfect day. They had their church ceremony at Holy Comforter Catholic Church and that was followed by an amazingly perfect reception at Blenheim Vineyards. Blenheim is a beautiful place with so much charm and a truly romantic feel. They even decided to have a live band, The Dickens, and that was such a treat! They wrapped up their day singing “Wagon Wheel” with their guests. The reception was followed up by a trip to The Virginian, the place they first met. Not to mention they have the best names ever! Coco and Chip – Thank you for being the wonderful people you are. I am so excited for all the future holds for you.

A love story in Virginia… could it be any better? Virginia is for lovers my friends. It really is.

It’s a perfect day to share Maggie and Brian’s Georgetown wedding with you! I absolutely loved being a part of their wedding day at The Avery and Dumbarton House in Georgetown. Being a Lynchburg wedding photographer, I love being able to travel across the state to capture some of the most beautiful weddings. I feel so lucky and humbled each time. This day was nothing short of perfect.

We arrived at The Avery, a quintessential boutique hotel, and loved how original and perfectly designed it was. Definitely a beautiful place to get ready for a wedding! Maggie of course was as beautiful as any bride could be. The wedding was held at Dumbarton House which provided so many gorgeous places for photos. The rain held off and we were able to capture the most amazing moments for them. From bouquets the bridal party put together themselves to the soul train wedding party introductions – it couldn’t have been better.  Surrounded by the best parents, family and friends, these two make the perfect pair. I am so excited for all the future holds for them!

Thank you Maggie and Brian, you are a dream! I love my job! Everyday, I’m so thankful to be surrounded by such phenomenal people. If you’d like to see more of my work, click here!

My first wedding of 2017 went off without a hitch with a Fincastle wedding at the Kyle House. It was absolutely beautiful. I knew it would be. Mandy and Ryan are just that. When I first got to hang out with them at their engagement session, it was so laid back and I loved getting to know them. Mandy constantly exudes a gratitude that is hard to describe. She is vibrant and loving, and Ryan is her perfect compliment with his genuine care about people.

I love my job, I love getting to know my couples. I also love when they realize I am a person too with a family and I think that is part of what I bring to the table in my business. Having lost my mom last month has really given me perspective on why I do what I do. When she passed, there were so many photos we spent time looking through. Such a beautiful documentation of the amazing life she lived and her story – and this post is not about my mom, but about what I realized in her final days – life passes, but we have this amazing opportunity to capture small moments in time. I want to bring that to every wedding I photograph. I want to bring my couples memories, stories and documentation that they have lived a full life.

A wedding day is one of the most magnificent and beautiful times in a family’s story. It deserves all the attention to detail, all the candid moments and all the realness that it is. I want my couples to be able to look back at when they started their lives together (officially). I photographed Mandy and Ryan’s wedding the day after we said our final goodbyes to mom, and for me that was amazing thing. To lose something and then realize all that I will gain in 2017 creating memories for people who are absolutely wonderful and deserving of these moments in their lives.

Mandy and Ryan – thank you. Thank you for being real. Thank you for being a blessing to me as the start of my 2017 wedding season.
