Christine & Jacob

Christine & Jacob’s engagement shoot was super fun and romantic. Let me set the scene for you: Summer night, down by a river, train tracks near by and the sun going down. Yep, it was AWESOME!  Tons of cuddling and an awesome dance session on the dock. You guys are too cute, and I adored […]



A Richmond Engagement : Parnie & Brad

Have you ever just met someone and KNEW you were going to be friends? Thats this cute couple : Brad & Parnie. I met them on a rock – literally. When I first moved to Richmond I went down to the river to read but instead I ended up chatting it up with these lovebirds. […]




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!
