Virginia Engagement

This past weekend I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Amy and Jeff at the beautiful Barn at Willow Brook for their engagement session.  These two were just as sweet in person as they were the first time I talked to them on the phone.  I always love being able to finally meet my couples […]

My animal-loving heart was so excited when Sara told me they wanted to include their pets in their engagement photos. Animals are always a major yes from me! I met Sara and Bo at their home for the first portion of their session. It was the perfect fall day with the sun shining and beautiful […]

I was so excited to meet Kim and Matthew at one of my favorite locations – the State Arboretum of Virginia. You can definitely never go wrong with this location. There are endless possibilities for portraits! I immediately hit it off with Kim and Matthew. They are two of the nicest people you will ever […]

Fall Engagement. Lake Frederick. Virginia

I had the absolute joy of meeting Brandy and Jason at Lake Frederick, in Virginia, for their engagement session! These two are so much fun to be around. They are one of the most light hearted and fun-loving couples I have ever met. Brandy and Jason enjoy fishing together so it was important to them […]

Vienna, Virginia. Engagement Session.

Lindsey and David are such a dream! Seriously, it’s as if they walked straight out of a Hallmark Movie! Y’all know how much I love Hallmark Movies. So watch out- your love story just might be considered, in my book, the next best movie 😉 I met Lindsey and David at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in […]

Oh, sweet, young love – isn’t it the best? It takes you right back to that time when you first met the love of your life. Those first few conversations. That first date together. The first time you looked into each others eyes and simply knew that you were meant to be together. That first […]

From the first conversation with Emily, I simply could not wait to work with her and Will. She was such a sweetheart and I could not wait to get to know them! Upon arriving at Sky Meadows State Park, I knew it was going to be the perfect evening. The sun was glowing bright and […]

Winchester, Virginia engagement. Shenandoah University.

I had the joy of meeting Carolyn and Dylan not once, but twice for their engagement session. The first time around sadly got rained out; therefore, we were unable to capture any photos. Typically, I would move forward despite the rain and use clear umbrellas, but with the high winds, thunder, and lighting we opted […]

Where do I even begin with Courtney and Robert?  I first met them at their consultation back in January of this year.  The moment I met them I thought they were absolutely precious!  Which they are, as you can see!   The Engagement Session To say I was excited that Courtney chose Stone Tower Winery […]

After corresponding via e-mail for several weeks, I was so excited to finally meet Chelsea and Boyd for their engagement session!  Once Chelsea told me where they wanted to have their engagement session take place, I knew it was going to be special. Chelsea and Boyd chose to do their engagement session at James Madison […]
