I have been looking so forward to spending the day with Cidnye and Joe after exploring different areas of Richmond a few months ago for their Engagement Session. It was so much fun! I knew their wedding day was going to be just as wonderful, and that it certainly was!Read More
I thought for the 4th of July Nicole and Chris’s GORGEOUS wedding day would be perfect! They themed their colors and details all around their profession.Read More
Holy cow where to begin when remembering Taylor and Dan’s incredible day! I would have to say the biggest thing that made this day stick out so much to us would be the couple’s vows to each other. Their words were so touching, and completely from their heart of how much they love each other. It was like the perfect mixture of emotions from their tears and then just busting out laughing from being silly together.Read More
Lacey and Kurt have been together for 4 years, and had such a wonderful wedding day surrounded by all their friends and family! The Historic Post Office is right in their home town of Hampton Roads, and was such an elegant choice for their day. We love getting to shoot there, and actually will be back there tomorrow for a video day!Read More
I have been so excited to share Vince and Danielle’s day on the blog! I had the hardest time narrowing down just a handful from each part of their whole day. There were just soooo many special moments through out that day. Tears were shed quite a few times from everyone. They started when Danielle read her card from Vince. His words started off all the emotions that the day held for them. The 8 years together led to this moment.Read More
I had the best time with Cidnye and Joe touring around a few fun spots in Richmond! Cidnye had so many great ideas of places she loved in the area. Shockoe Bottom is where the railroad track is, and It was literally the perfect day to get these for them.Read More
Sarah and Ryan had the most gorgeous mountain view wedding! Stover Hall is such beautiful rustic venue right in the heart of Luray, Va.

Champagne popping and lots of laughter filled Erika and Dom’s wedding day! Right from the start of the day I just loved everyones happiness for these two tying the knot. You can see just how much FUN these guys were having by their photos getting ready photos!Read More

Hunter and I had the honor of doing photo and video for Anna and Steve's gorgeous day at Fort Monroe. The Commanding General’s Residence was just classic for the garden theme they were wanting.Read More
What a GORGEOUS wedding day Kelsey and Derek had at Bandit's Ridge! The prettiest pastels for details and florals. It was such a beautiful and unique venue. The inside reception spot with the light colored wood photographed so classic and nice. The outside little barn area where the horses stalls were was decorated so pretty, and made for a dazzling backdrop of lights for portraits! Not to mention the kindest vendors to work with at the facility. It was such a nice wedding day!Read More
There were SO many incredible moments through out this whole day. Several times where I was definitely moved to tears. Justine’s mom had recently passed away, and they did such a beautiful job honoring her through out the entire day. Her bouquet had a locket on it of her mother and grandmother. There was also a chair dedicated to her at the Ceremony. Justine also held her mother’s wedding photo for some photos with her same hat she wore. That is early in the film.
We were beyond blessed to capture these special memories for Justine and Matt! Make sure to not miss the end of the film during the daddy/daughter dance! I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place! Oh and YES everyone agrees Matt looks just like Vin Diesel haha!!!Read More
After yesterday’s rainy weather I knew just what beautiful sunny wedding day I wanted to share on the blog today!
Katie and Dan’s day at Half Moon in Norfolk was just that! The sun was certainly shinning, and warm all day…. But if you take a look at their photos you will quickly see that their smiles and laughter was just the same.Read More
Taylor and Tyler have been together for three years, and met through friends. They quickly knew that this was it. Tyler proposed in Charleston, SC after the two took a romantic horse and carriage ride. Tyler had someone take a photo of them in front of the Pineapple Fountain where he got down on one knee. Taylor said it was the perfect evening!Read More
When I first met with Megan and Austin we had such a great time talking about all their plans for the wedding day. We met at the cutest little shop in Downtown Norfolk called Hummingbird Macarons. A wedding consultation over one of my favorite desserts is a new favorite for me!
What a beautiful wedding day Claudia and Derek had. It was our first time at Ford's Colony, and we definitely already can't wait to be back!Read More
The Barns at Timberneck is a hidden gem in our area for sure! We loved shooting there, and it completely brought the rustic vision to life that Morgan and TJ wanted!Read More

Sooo much love and so much pretty!!! Michelle and Shawn's wedding day was just beautiful in every way. They chose to have an intimate small wedding at their lovely home right in Smithfield. It was the perfect backdrop for their very sweet Ceremony. The Fall colors mixed with Fleur De Fou's gorgeousss florals was just stunning.
After having all the Family Pictures done they took a Horse and Carriage ride to The Smithfield Inn for their Reception. It was like straight out of a Fairy Tale! An absolutely exquisite handmade Wooden Farm Table adorned with flowers and candles awaited them when they arrived.. After everyone was finished with dinner it was time to cut the cake. Yummaries Bakery made a fabulous ( and delicious ) Naked Cake. They ended their evening with laughing, dancing, and then releasing lanterns over the water.
We are so happy for Shawn and Michelle! It was wonderful being part of their amazing day. We have also included their short Highlight Film at the bottom of this post.
