This time last year we were planning Kiley & Hunter’s engagement session for a cotton field  in Wakefield. I had never been to one before and it was like a magically fluffy filled field that was the perfect location for their session. Much like Smithfield was the perfect setting for their wedding day. I’ve lived […]

Lindsay & Anthony’s wedding day was technically my first full wedding of 2020. I’m sure that’s all I really have to say for you to understand that 2020 and the wedding world have not exactly seen eye to eye. On top of a global pandemic there were rain bands of a hurricane rolling through Virginia […]

Last Thursday I was on my way to meet a friend for a “trunk dinner” when I received an inquiry from a sister of a Bride. While sitting in my Chick Fil A parking lot waiting for my mobile order I read the very sweet plea from an older sister trying her best to salvage […]

When Kayla reached out to have an engagement session with her and her fiance Michael I was more than happy to oblige! They both work in the medical field and their schedules are very busy but we were able to make this session happen! The wedding is set for this coming fall so Kayla was […]

I’ve known and worked with Brittany “Tilley” Hanson for almost 5 years now. I’ve watched her step out in what can only be described as pure faith and build a thriving social media management company. Tilley’s Social Threads has a passion to see local businesses explode in their online presence even those businesses that don’t […]

I will start by saying, as usual, I arrived at my location early for this engagement session with Alix & Gene. I do this for many reasons but I was especially glad that I did so on this occasion. As I was pulling up to the parking area that is immediately across from this open […]

On New Years Day we sat down as a family and made a decision to take a trip together to a place none of us had ever been. Initially there were ideas of Australia, Ireland, Disney World, Key West…..you can see we were literally all over the map. So rather than make this decision as […]

I remember arriving at the Hilton Oceanfront just as the hair and makeup team were packing up to leave the getting room where Kathrine and all of her girls were gathered. This almost never happens! I DO always arrive early, it’s an innate characteristic of mine that serves me well in this case, but never […]

I first met Hunter while I was working in my prior “corporate life” as a trainer of insurance adjusters. Sounds super exciting yes? I’m sorry to say I’ll have to save my tales of training for another day 😉 Meeting Hunter I could tell, almost immediately, he is someone who knows exactly what he wants […]

Katelyn & Matt’s wedding was an absolute JOY to be a part of! From the number of sweet family and friends that were incredibly supportive of their day to the beautiful venue they chose, everything had the hallmark of Katelyn and Matt. Our day began with all the ladies getting prepared together. I remember entering […]
