Virginia Beach, VA & Seattle, WA

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ROSCOE!!! I could talk about this dog all day, so I’ll try to keep this brief. For those of you who don’t know Roscoe’s story, he was left at a shelter in South Carolina in early September 2014 (ironically just days after Preston and I got engaged, which is yet another reason why […]

When Angela and I started talking about photographing her fiancé, Xavier’s, homecoming, my first impression was that Angela was hands-down one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. I was SO excited to meet her and be a part of such a special day in her and Xavier’s life together. It may have been a […]

Melissa and Rob are such a fun, sweet couple and it was such an honor to be a part of their day last Sunday! The two are from New York and wanted a destination wedding, but wanted it to be something that all their family and friends could easily come to, so Sandbridge Beach in […]

One of the hardest things about photographing bridals is not being able to share the pictures with everyone right after they’re taken, especially when your bride is absolutely breathtaking in her dress like Courtney! We chose to do her bridal session at First Landing State Park so that the majority of the portraits could be done […]

I absolutely loved Courtney and Jacob from the second I met them at their engagement session (you can view their engagement session HERE)! If I only got one word to describe this couple, the word would be genuine. Jacob currently serves in the Marines and this couple met after he had already begun his service, […]

I love when couples email me that they’re looking to book a session and want to include their dog! For those of you who don’t know (or don’t follow me on Instagram, where I post a somewhat embarrassing number of photos of my own dog) I am a total dog person and whenever a couple […]

When the Ingersoll’s car pulled up with Washington license plates, I knew it was going to be a fun session with plenty to talk about! Being almost 3000 miles from home, it’s always nice to connect with other Washingtonians who know exactly what the beautiful state is like! Ironically, we had to move the Ingersoll […]

When Courtney and Jacob chose me to be the photographer for their June wedding, I was thrilled because they sounded like such a sweet couple! But due to Jacob’s job in the Marines, we weren’t all able to meet until this past weekend. I’m so glad we were able to fit in an engagement session […]

My mom visited recently (yay!) and we were able to spend a couple nights in the Outer Banks during her visit. By far the coolest thing we did while we were there was drive up to Corolla to see the wild horses! Last August and October, I went up to Chincoteague with both of my […]

Back in December, I got to photograph Amber and Tony’s gender reveal (you can see their gender reveal here!) One of my favorite things about being a photographer is when I get to document multiple moments of a couple’s or family’s journey, and I was SO excited when Amber contacted me wanting me to do their […]
