Ashley & Eric’s VMFA Summer Engagement Photos

Taking a summer stroll with Ashley and Eric for their VMFA engagement photos was so fun! I seriously love it when my couples can turn their session into a laid-back good time while reminiscing, and enjoying a good laugh with me. Ashley and Eric often visited VMFA when they first started dating. At the time, […]

Richmond Engagement Session | Ashley and Tommy

“No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.” 1 John 4:12. This Bible verse spoke to me as I reflected on Ashley and Tommy’s engagement session that was centered on God and their love for each other. The National […]




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!
