weddings, branding, and personal life
Where do I begin with Emily and Jake? We have been through it all together…a pandemic, moves, postponements…I have even had a second baby since these two booked me back in the fall of 2019 for what was supposed to be their summer 2020 wedding. Alas, two years later, they got the celebration they have meticulously planned [three times] and that they so, so deserve.
Ashley is a third grade teacher, while Keith spend his days keeping us safe as a state trooper. Both living lives in service to their community, the care they display for one another and their loved ones was on display throughout their summer wedding day.
When you meet Mary and Will, you just get a sense that you will be taken care of. They have that air of Southern hospitality that shows you care and grace. They have known each other since they were 11 and 14! But get this–they didn’t start dating until her senior year of college at Virginia Tech (GO HOKIES!!). Will was persistent…every year when she came home from college, he would take her out on a date. He even told her, “I’m gonna marry you someday.” Lo and behold, he sure did make her his wife!
Samantha and her mother came to my booth in my very first bridal show back in September of 2019…yes, almost two years ago! Immediately both Samantha and I knew we were a good fit, and she ended up booking me on the spot for her June 2020 wedding. Little did we know what was about to hit us!
Shooting this wedding was just like catching up with old friends because…well, we were catching up with old friends! Caleb and Rylan grew up together–literally were born four weeks apart in the small little town of Cookville, TN. Fast forward 30 years, and they are still great friends who keep in touch often. Rylan was […]
Despite some setbacks in the planning process of their day, Kaelyn and Tyler’s wedding day was just as beautiful as it was meaningful.
Every maternity session is special because the couple typically nervous with anticipation and excitement of what is to come, especially when it’s their first child. But this maternity session was EXTRA special because that guy there is one of Caleb’s best friends from high school.
Despite below freezing temperatures and uncertainty about access to the Tidal Basin during cherry blossom season, we were able to make this sweet sunrise engagement session happen…and make it look warm, despite it being 17 degrees!
Kayla and Donovan were determined to get married on their original wedding date, so they had a micro-wedding with 19 of their closest family members and friends come together at the Historic Polegreen Church to say their vows.
Emily and Jake have basically become family at this point. Through a bridal show, an engagement session, two COVID postponements (July is OFFICIALLY the date!) and coincidentally Emily’s mom works at our financial advisor’s office and handles all the things for us…well, they’re just our people. This is the second sunrise session they have let […]
