I'm a wife, an artist, and a lover of dogs, rock music, and abstract art. I'm a Virginia girl with equal love for California sun and New York grunge. 
I see the most beauty in imperfect things. Ripped jeans. Asymmetrical art. Vintage everything. And a photo with a little girt and grain. I love things that are rugged and little bit off the beaten path. 









Sunny Slopes Farm Engagement | Katie & Seth


I was so excited to spend some time with Katie & Seth at their engagement session at Sunny Slopes Farm in Harrisonburg, Virgina. I have known Katie since college (which feels like a million years ago) where we worked together at Texas Roadhouse. Katie’s upbeat, driven personality always inspired me and we became good friends. Fast forward years later and Katie moved up to NYC, moved back, and just so happen to meet the man of her dreams online. CRAZY RIGHT? Never in a million years did she expect to fall in love with an engineer and be so happy. Seth compliments Katie in so many ways and I couldn’t be happier for their blossoming love. The first date went a little like this –

“Seth and I met on Match.com.  He contacted me and we spent the entire day messaging each other. He found me on Facebook and after finding out we were both normal people (haha) we decided to go on a date. It was Dec. 22, 2015 and he was on his way home from Louisa to Shepherdstown, WV. We had our first date at Union Station in downtown Harrisonburg.  He was on his way home with his Austrailian Shepherd (Sadie). He brought her on the date because he was going home and had to. It was cold out and his truck was the perfect temperature so she was safe.  His parents think he’s crazy and tease him for bringing her but he had no choice. I loved Sadie so it helped to have her around. We went to the Artful Dodger after and then right before he left he gave me a quick peck on the lips. It was so cute! We talked until after Christmas and then he invited me to spend New Years with him. Our second date went really well! I remember after 10 days he asked me what my ring size was and after 10 months he proposed at Union Station with roses! He brought my parents to the proposal which was perfect.”

 I couldn’t be happier for my friend and her amazing fiance. Their engagement session was one of those unforgettable ones where I felt charged by their love. On the drive back from Harrisonburg to Richmond, I thought about the session and how blessed I felt; to see the beautiful mountains, animals, and to just simply witness the sweet love between Katie & Seth had me feeling recharged. I feel incredibly thankful to be in an industry where I can experience these things.
