Welcome TO THE

Abby’s senior session was one of my favorite sessions ever! We divided her shoot in half, half casual and half formal!. Abby was such a trooper even though it was so COLD! The prom dress took both of us to put together on her, and we dressed her in it in the middle of a […]

SENIORS

Jill and Kevin got married at The Dar Memorial Hall in Washington, D.C. Their wedding was absolutely beautiful and I was so blessed to be able to document the two of their families coming together. See their beautiful day unfold below!  

WEDDINGS

Alyssa was such a dream to work with!! We split the shoot into 3 parts: the first part with a bunch of her girl friends, the next part solo portraits of her, and the last part with her roommate. I love making sure my seniors incorporate their various loved ones from different groups, classes, and […]

SENIORS

It is often in the smallest and most ordinary of moments that we find the answers to our biggest questions.  For Amanda, she was sitting in her car talking to Tim about his family and his faith when she realized that he was the one she wanted to spend the rest of her life with.  […]

COUPLES

Mariam and Marwan’s Old Hickory Golf Club Wedding was one of my favorite weddings ever! Mariam’s family first reached out to me about photographing Mariam’s wedding. Her sister lives in Dubai permanently and was planning as much as she could for Mariam while overseas. We had a phone call, and talked about everything that she felt […]

WEDDINGS

Ashley and Charlie’s Delfosse Vineyards & Winery wedding was one to remember and had the BEST RECEPTION I have ever witnessed. I am so serious when I say that out of all the weddings I have photographed, I have never seen two people more excited to get married than these two. So I thought I […]

WEDDINGS

Heidi and Micah are one of the sweetest couples I have ever met! I first heard about them at JMU when Micah proposed to Heidi at a annual Relay for Life event. Its easy to see that this couple gives so much to the world and to the people in their lives, and it was […]
