Travis & Kristy: Glencoe Kentucky Farm Engagement

The more I see of Kentucky, the more I love this beautiful Bluegrass State. Initially when we moved here, I was disappointed that I didn’t see rolling hills or mountains and farm land. But just a short drive up I71 brings you to the most gorgeous little town: Glencoe. High school sweethearts Travis & Kristy met…

Paul & Ali: Willett Distillery Styled Engagements

Nestled in the outskirts of Bardstown, KY, surrounded by rolling hills is the Willett Distillery. It’s a quaint bourbon distillery with decades of history. I had no idea the legacy and tradition of Kentucky bourbon before I became a resident. But, the Willett family and family friends Paul & Ali enjoy and appreciate good bourbon….

Justin & Sonya: Downtown Louisville Engagements

Moving to Louisville has had its challenges, but it’s also been incredibly rewarding. And one of the rewards is getting to meet new people. Going to college was kind of like this, opening up a whole new world of people with different worldviews. And again, I get to experience that by moving to a new…

2016 Favorites: Engagements

While I love weddings, engagements always hold a special place in my heart. I love getting to know the two people who are trusting me to capture their wedding day and getting to see them as they normally are – not all dolled up for a wedding. Because while weddings are a reflection of the…

Ryan & Karissa: High Bridge Engagements

It is my absolute favorite when couples choose places that they love for their engagements. And this session is the perfect example of that! Ryan & Karissa both love High Bridge State Park. Growing up in Farmville, Karissa spent many weekends and afternoons exploring the park with her family and friends. She knew historical facts…

Tristan & Lauren: Classic Nautical Engagements

Being from the western side of Virginia, I’m always surprised when I hear friends say that they are “boat people.” But I’m learning more and more that boating and being on the water is a way of life loved by many, and that includes these two! Tristan & Lauren met and live overseas, and more…

Zach & Laura: Fall Lake Lanier Engagements

It’s finally starting to feel like a real fall and this engagement session is a perfect picture of that! The colors of the leaves are beautiful around the lake and Zach and Laura looked so fall-esque in boots and sweaters. I love it!  Zach and Laura are seriously “the cutest” as I told them at…

Owen & Hannah: Classic Downtown Richmond Engagements

Growing up in southwest Virginia meant that I didn’t visit Richmond often. If I did, it was on a school trip with very specific stops preplanned for me. I never really thought much of the city. It’s our state’s capitol and way more of a city then what I was ever used to. But that…

Douglass & Blair: Yorktown Beach Engagements

Photography is a unique business in that it is both a service and an art. And because of those two elements, it can be hard balancing customer service and artistic vision. That’s why after couples inquire about my services, I’m looking for someone who has looked through my portfolio and likes what they see and…

Robert & Shannon: Romantic First Landing State Park Engagements

It feels like it’s been raining here in Virginia for weeks. Days pass by where the sun was no where to be found. The ground has been saturated with water and every where you step there’s a big patch of mud. I prayed the whole weekend that the sun would soon shine again! And wouldn’t…
