We celebrated the first day of May with an intimate wedding for Andrew and Joseph.  This was a day with international flair, as Joseph’s family joined us “virtually” all the way from the U.K to participate in both the ceremony (with a lovely reading done by Joseph’s mother via Zoom! and a toast that knew […]

It was a joy and an honor to host Arianna and Will’s gorgeous Virginia elopement!  This fun loving couple had plenty of neat ideas up their sleeve to personalize their day and highlight all the things they love the most!  Arianna and Will chose a very unique theme for their wedding aesthetic, basing it off […]

Tylir and Joshua’s wedding day was a dream.  Beautiful weather.  Beautiful people.  And all the redbuds in bloom, covering our mountain valley in a perfect haze of pink.  This day felt magical.  It was due in great part to the gentle love shared by this entire family.  The little things.  Which sometimes, are the things […]

Audrey and David wanted to plan a simple yet special wedding day, filled with rustic touches and great friends, and they certainly succeeded on both accounts!  This sweet couple chose a neutral color scheme of Cappucinno and Ivory, with some lovely hunter green and pale pink accents tucked here and there, to achieve a beautiful […]

Take my hand, will you share this with me, because darling without you, all the shine of a thousand spotlights, all the stars we steal from the night sky, will never be enough… This is such an exciting post to share!  Our very first wedding of 2021.  We’ve been hosting wonderful elopements during the past […]

We got to celebrate such a special day with Teri-Jo and Joel for their gorgeous April elopement.  When Teri-Jo sent me a photo of her Skeleton Wedding Sign, to help me get a sense of their style, I knew this was going to be a very fun and unique event!  Dark colors of black and […]

You know how they talk about a person who can “light up a room” – well this was our gorgeous bride Sherry, to a tee!  The mountains were putting on their full November show, with scudding clouds and a brisk breeze, but Sherry arrived like a ray of sunshine…really funny sunshine, is that a thing?…warm, […]

A “monopoly hat”, a tiny tea laid out for fairies to enjoy, candy as far as the eye could see, lush flowers draped over sparkling lanterns…everywhere you turned at Allison and Thom’s wedding day, there was something delightful to catch your eye.  If I could choose a superpower, it would definitely be to time travel.  […]

There is something so special about uncovering and hanging up a bridal gown in the dressing room…it makes it really start to feel like a wedding day!  Everyone ooohs and ahhs over the dress and is able to take a moment to truly appreciate all the thought and love and planning that has gone into […]

There is just something special about high school sweethearts!  I was instantly charmed when I met Andrea and Michael early in the year, and finally after lots of waiting, their October wedding day finally arrived!  This sweet and savvy young couple have been busy in the past few months, and just finalized the purchase of […]

Some days are so special, and so much fun to be a part of…and Shiny and Trevor’s wedding day was definitely one of those days!!!  This gorgeous couple was as sweet and fun as they were beautiful!  And they were joined by a very special guest for their intimate elopement – their golden retriever “Link”.  […]

Our wonderful couple Shannon and Brian celebrated their wedding day surrounded by friends and family and beautiful touches of fall!  Their Champagne and Eggplant decor, was enhanced by two of Shannon’s favorite things – flickering candles and warm, cozy scents.  She created many of the decorative touches including her beautiful centerpieces and the fabric and […]

It’s always fun to go back to the office and look through the photo’s I’ve just shot, and I’ll admit, I might have gasped a couple times when I looked through these – our lovely couple Geyse and Erick are simply drop. dead. gorgeous.  This amazing couple met in South Carolina but both were born […]

We loved every moment of Janet and Jack’s intimate wedding celebration!  Our Bride and Groom were joined by their children for a private wedding ceremony followed by cupcakes, sparkling apple cider and a mountain top adventure (if you are wondering how to scale rocks in high heels – Janet is the person to go to!!!) […]

Are you ready…because GORGEOUS does not even begin to describe our radiant bride Mary (kind, sweet and humble too!).  She was surrounded by the most amazing group of women – deeply caring, and encouraging helpers and family who made the day even more special.  Her groom Kevin looked so handsome, and many guests arrived dressed […]

I was so excited for our July 2016 couple Liz and Allen, when they contacted me to let me know they were expecting (!) and to ask if I would shoot their maternity photos.  I already knew that I adored this sweet couple, and absolutely loved shooting their wedding photos last year – you can […]
