VIRGINIA BRIDE

Sarah + Jonathan ◇ Elegant Fall Barn Wedding

Sarah + Jonathan  ◇  Elegant Fall Barn Wedding

I have way, way too many thoughts about this wedding and even months later am still processing it!  Every now and then you have the opportunity to work with people in a situation where everything just clicks. That’s how this wedding was for me.

Lesley + Gibson ◇ Elegant Estate Wedding

Lesley + Gibson  ◇  Elegant Estate Wedding

This beautiful West Manor Estate wedding was a dream come true. From perfect fall weather, to the most gorgeous flowers I’ve ever seen, to Lesley & Gibson’s incredible love for one another. Wishing a lifetime of happiness to Mr. & Mrs. Hawk!

Lauren + Matt ◇ Elegant Charlottesville Wedding

Lauren + Matt  ◇  Elegant Charlottesville Wedding

I had been so excited for Lauren & Matt’s wedding for the longest time.  We had only been able to talk over the phone & through email before the wedding, so I couldn’t wait to meet this sweet couple and see how their wedding plans all came together!

Sabrina + Nick ◇ Vineyard Wedding & Downtown Reception

Sabrina + Nick  ◇  Vineyard Wedding & Downtown Reception

Sabrina & Nick are such a wonderful couple.  Their intimate ceremony at Knight’s Gambit Vineyard on Friday with a larger reception the next night at Old Metropolitan Hall in Charlottesville offered the best of both worlds.  Every moment I spent with the two of them, their love for one another just poured out of them and they were so fun to get to know! 

Jenny + Chris ◇ Romantic Wilderness Wedding

Jenny + Chris  ◇  Romantic Wilderness Wedding

From the first time I talked to Jenny over the phone, I knew that her wedding to Chris was going to be one for the books.  To start, it was at Wilderness Adventure, a place that is very near and dear to my heart.  When I first moved to Virginia, it was for a job as a backpacking trip leader for their year round and summer camp programs.  I spent a few years working there in a wide variety of roles before eventually ending up as a photographer in Roanoke.  So, needless to say, I have quite a lot of love for their venue, and was very excited to get to know the couple that choose such a unique place for their wedding!

Lesley + Michael ◇ Downtown Staunton Wedding

Lesley + Michael  ◇  Downtown Staunton Wedding

I don't know where to begin with this wedding, from start to finish, it was an absolute joy to be a part of and I am so glad Lesley & Michael chose me to be their photographer!

First, this was a much different experience than many of my weddings because instead of being outdoors or in a relatively small town, this wedding was all in downtown Staunton, Virginia.  I was able to be at the rehearsal too, so I booked an Airbnb that seemed close to everything, and when I arrived, I realized it was within walking distance which was AMAZING!

Sierra + Meriwether ◇ Glam Winter Winery Wedding

Sierra + Meriwether  ◇  Glam Winter Winery Wedding

There is so much I could say about this wedding and how much I loved getting to work with Sierra & Meriwether, but to be brief - it was absolutely incredible. 

This style and all the details were above and beyond - so glam and elegant.  The venue, Early Mountain Vineyard, was rustic and gorgeous and the early-winter weather was perfect!  Both families were so wonderful and loving and the entire day was just filled with joy.
