Chrissy and Jonathan’s Fredericksburg Wedding

Chrissy and Jonathan were married at Riverside Weddings by Clore in Fredericksburg, VA at the end of May during one of the wettest Springs Fredericksburg has experienced in years. Magically, Chrissy and Jonathan had a gorgeous Spring day for almost the entire wedding. In fact, it didn’t start raining until the dancing got going, and at that point, Chrissy and Jonathan took the opportunity to dance together under a light Spring rain on the banks of the Rappahannock river. I loved everything about this wedding, and this couple. From their handmade place cards, to their talented friends who performed during their ceremony and first dance, this was a lovely celebration of this unique couple. Congratulations Jonathan and Chrissy!

Venue: Riverside Weddings by Clore

Spring Portraits

This Spring feels like it’s been all about senior portraits. I’ve had so much fun documenting these transitional times for some lovely clients making the leap from high school to college and from college into the real world. Seniors from Stafford High School, North Stafford High School and the University of Richmond and the University of Mary Washington have stepped in front of my lens during this Spring. Congrats to all the graduating seniors this Spring!


Scott and Mary’s Luray Wedding

Scott and Mary tied the knot at Khimaira Farm in Luray, VA, which, as you know, is one of my favorite places to photograph weddings. Scott got ready with his friends at the Mimslyn Inn, and Mary at a fabulous little AirBnB near Lake Arrowhead. They enjoyed the perfect September day with friends and family, and I was honored to document the day and create some gorgeous imagery for them to cherish.


A year of weddings in Virginia and beyond.

In 2017 weddings took me all across the state of Virginia, twice to the Outer Banks of North Carolina and for the first time to Spartanburg, South Carolina. Having photographed weddings for the past twelve years now, you might think that I’d seen it all, but new venues, lovely couples and a passion for telling unique stories keep me going through the intense wedding seasons. As always, I’m touched by the families who invite me into their lives to document their most cherished memories. Can’t wait to kick of the 2018 season.

Melony Star Kiesau - Your photos convey the pure joy and love of these new families on one of the most beautiful days in each of their lives. Somehow you take pictures of everyone in which they look beautiful and comfortable—it’s almost as if you let us see a person through the eyes of those who love them.
Thank you for all of your work and the memories of such an amazing day for Augusta and Tyler. I appreciate you and Lisa being part of their wedding day…in July…in South Carolina.

2017 Portraits

With a few days off this winter I’ve begun looking back through the work I created in 2017. Hope you don’t mind if I share some of it here. We’ll start with a sampling of the portraits I created this year. Lots of new faces stepped in front of my camera for 2017, and quite a few familiar ones. I’m grateful for both and can’t wait to create with you in 2018!
