Lake Anna, Virginia, Fall Wedding

September 30, 2015


There is something so beautiful about a fall wedding, especially when its at Lake Anna, Virginia! Mary & Chris are this couple that are so down to earth, fun loving, and just want to have a good time. When they are together the world around them disappears and they become so into each  other –  their love radiates. During their wedding, and even their engagement shoot, their were moments were I just put down my camera watched them – – seriously it was like a movie. The amount these two have been through with their jobs and Mary being overseas in the military has taken their love to a whole new level. When I first met them  we were in conversation I casually asked them, “What do you guys like to do together?” Mary replied, “We just like to be together”.  That one sentence summed up their relationship. They were a part so long that “just being” was absolutely more perfect then any date could ever be. The sweetest moment from this day was when Chris placed his hands on Mary’s cheeks and sang the song to her as they swayed back and forth to their first dance. Filled with so much emotion and love, tears streamed down from Mary’s face ( I was secretly crying too). I was honored to be apart of this wedding and am so excited for what is come  Mary & Chris’ future!

I see the beauty in imperfect things. As a Christ-follower, faith is central to my life, work, and connections. I am fueled by joy, known for my bubbly and sunny disposition, and always with a warm hug. Imperfect beauty inspires my love for all things vintage, abstract art, and real love stories. I love moments full of grit and emotion; life off the beaten path; stunning views along the shore; and the juxtaposition of New York grunge and laid back Cali-vibe. 

As a mother of two, I am very familiar with how quickly life’s most important moments fly by too quickly. I will calmly and seamlessly guide you through frames that will endure. I strive to capture your memories with one-of-a-kind images full of meaning. I cannot wait to connect with you! 

I bring all of these elements to my time with my couples. With over a decade of experience in the industry, I know how to gently guide you through poses that are natural and beautiful. The transition into this sentence doesn’t make sense. Throughout your day, you will feel the love from those there to celebrate
 you two. 
When I’m not photographing weddings, I enjoy long walks in the neighborhood with my husband, my kiddos Tuxie and Sunny, and my labradoodle Hokie.. Also, I am a huge dog-lover! I’m pretty sure heaven is full of dogs. I can’t wait to connect with you, and yes, your pup is always welcome here!
