Carlie and John celebrated a very special wedding day at the Golden Horseshoe Inn on a sunny late November afternoon.  I loved everything about this beautiful event, an afternoon tea full of delicate handmade details and tones of blush and deep blue.  Carlie was an absolutely gorgeous bride, with her curls pinned back with a […]

We were honored to host an elegant and cozy wedding day for our sweet (and stunning!) bride Victoria and her handsome groom James.  I loved being near the gentle energy of this lovely couple as they navigated their wedding day together.  Victoria and James chose a sparkling color scheme of turquoise and silver, with hints […]

Warm socks.  Cozy Sweaters.  A chilly breeze in the air. Oh, and a herd of tame deer.  This was an unforgettable day!  I was so excited to join Sara and James on Skyline Drive for their engagement photos.   Little did we know that we’d have a few unexpected visitors joining us for the shoot!  We […]

We had the pleasure of celebrating the most wonderful wedding day with Cassie and Will, and their close friends and family.  It was the perfect November day, with lots of fall color still on the tree’s and a chilly breeze perfect for cocoa sipping!  Guests arrived to find that cocoa waiting for them just inside […]

The first week of November is always my favorite wedding week!  The hustle and bustle of October has passed, but the leaves are still so beautiful on the trees… even more so this year with a later than usual color change.  So last Saturday was the perfect day for the beautiful autumn wedding of Rachel […]

How much fun is a Halloween elopement?…SO MUCH FUN!!!  We had the best day with Sarah and Dan at their intimate Shenandoah National Park elopement!  It was a celebration filled with lots of beauty, and a few fun nods to the season, including a coffin shaped ring box, some darker gothic elements for the cake […]

I’ll admit it, birthday parties are my thing.  They make me so darn happy.  I don’t know why I love them so much…I just do.  Every year with our girls is magic, and I love celebrating their milestones with a special party.  Lyra is our December baby, and her party always ends up being just […]

The Golden Horseshoe Inn has been around for a very long time…192 years to be exact, it was built in 1827!  I like to think that a building that has stood the test of time is the perfect spot to start a marriage that will stand the test of time!  There is not much that […]

With a calendar full of upcoming weddings and a brand new photo session waiting on my hard drive to be edited, it is easy to keep rushing full tilt into the future.  But sometimes it is worth taking a moment to look back. I’d love to share my journey a little, and how I ended […]

Birthday Parties are my thing!  I make no excuses about that 🙂  They just make me so darn happy.

It!  We all have a few things in our lives where […]
