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.
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.

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!

Brandy and Jeremy were married in Fredericksburg, VA last summer at the historic Kenmore Inn. The Kenmore has such a gorgeous courtyard for an intimate ceremony! I always love photographing weddings here in my back yard. Hope you enjoy some images from their wedding as we approach their one year anniversary!
It’s prom season here in Fredericksburg, and what better time to capture some awesome portraits of your high school junior or senior? Natasha scheduled a trial run for her hair and makeup with Bobby Pins and Blush, and we coordinated times to create some stunning portraits of her after her appointment with Teddy. If you couldn’t tell, Natasha is an awesome dancer. She’s headed to Virginia Tech next year!
