Every time I photograph a new couple I’m always so grateful for the opportunity to be the one to capture their memories. It’s even more special when two close friends trust you with that responsibility. Sarah and I met in college and during our time a JMU studied abroad and ran on the executive board […]

Janelle and Steven are married! Their wedding at Tranquility Farm in Purcellville, Virginia was an incredible way to kick off my 2018 season. Janelle describes Tranquility Farm as her dream venue and it’s easy to see why! Tranquility Farm is tucked out in the countryside of Purcellville and is a former farm house turned wedding […]

Despite being a Loudoun wedding photographer, I’ve never gotten the chance to visit Tranquility Farm in Purcellville until a few weeks ago. All of a sudden I ended up there back to back two days in a row! Tranquility is where my first 2018 wedding will be so I started the week with a walkthrough […]

It’s hard to believe that this is Lauren & Jon’s third time in front of my camera! I first met Lauren and Jon after Lauren’s mom reached out about wedding photography. Now, two years later, they’ve been in front of my camera for their engagement session, wedding and now maternity photos! We met up at […]

You’re engaged! The weeks after getting engaged are one of the most exciting times. But they can also feel like the most overwhelming. As soon as you share the news, friends and family are probably beginning to bombard you with questions about the wedding. What’s the date? Who’s your photographer? Have you picked colors? It’s […]

While I love seeing how my brides bring their wedding day to life there’s something special about creating for yourself. When I got the opportunity to create this black and berry wedding inspiration last fall I was so excited! Most of the time I capture other people’s visions– which I love to do! Styled editorial […]
