Winter

My very favorite part of this job is getting to be in the presence of radiant happiness.  I’ve always been a little bit too empathetic…I absorb the feelings of those around me whether I want to or not.  But on days like this one…days like Laura and Bill’s wedding day, the feeling of being in […]

We had the best day ever with Kiera and Lethon, during their gorgeous mountain elopement!  Kiera was a true superwoman, completing her nursing finals and then jumping right into planning the details of her special day!  I joked that I was truly safe with this amazing bride and groom, as they are both in the […]

Lisa and Brian were wedding guests at the Golden Horseshoe Inn waaaay back in 2014.  Somewhere in the back of their minds, they tucked us away as a sweet spot to renew their vows when the time came to celebrate a milestone anniversary.  And luckily for us, their beautiful 10 year anniversary vow renewal ceremony […]

One of the unexpected gifts of the current pandemic has been the gift of more time!  I just love photographing engagement sessions, but my busy wedding schedule means they can be really hard to fit in.  Which is why I had just the best time ever roaming through the mountains with Allison and Vince.  A […]

Lizzy and Coburn’s beautiful wedding day was preceded by many twists and turns thanks to the pandemic.  The large wedding they had lovingly planned turned into an intimate day for just the two of them and a few very close family members and loved ones.  All those who are near and dear to Lizzy and […]

Maybe it’s because I’ve missed being with other people.  Maybe it’s because we couldn’t have ordered up a more perfect summer afternoon if we had tried.  Maybe it’s because small weddings are my favorite.   But I think it’s mostly because we got to spend the day with some genuinely wonderful people.  Daron and Paul are […]

Sometimes a bride has so much on her mind we have to remind her to smile – but not our beautiful bride Kylie – I know her cheeks must be tired now from all the smiling she did on her wedding day:-)  It was a true delight to share a day with a couple as sweet […]

Our bride Emily looked like she stepped straight out of a fairytale, and her handsome groom David was such fun to be around.  This laid back couple chose a classic color scheme of Navy Blue with pops of Red, perfect colors for their December wedding day.  Adorable flower girls, hot cocoa for guests as they arrived, […]

Sierra and Jamal celebrated their wedding day on a beautiful December afternoon.  After a cozy fireside ceremony, they adventured with us to Skyline Drive, where we were greeted by the most beautiful winter sky – and also an owl!!!  Enjoy a sneak peek into Sierra and Jamal’s beautiful wedding day… Congratulations to the new Mr. […]

Are you ready for a dose of holiday cheer?  We were cheering when we found out how much Angela and Michael love Christmas.  They gave us full rein when it came to decorating for their romantic December elopement, and so we added Christmas touches to our hearts delight.  This sweet and easygoing couple charmed us […]

Elizabeth and Michael and their darling little one spent a beautiful afternoon with us at the Golden Horseshoe Inn for their snowy January wedding day.  Elizabeth brought a beautiful handmade fabric and wooden bouquet, that was the perfect compliment to her rustic country wedding style.  After a cozy indoor ceremony, our bride and groom adventurously […]

James and Tiffany were planning to be married on 1.23.16 – the day a giant snowstorm was predicted here in Virginia (we ended up with over 2 feet of snow!).  They made the practical decision to move their wedding ahead two days, so that guests could travel in safety to enjoy their wedding day!  Our calm, […]

Vernell and Letitia were married on a beautiful December afternoon at the Golden Horseshoe Inn.  After sharing an intimate ceremony surrounded by friends, we travelled to Skyline Drive for some beautiful photos and lots of laughs.  Enjoy some favorite moments from this very special wedding day…  

Stephanie and Joshua have an extra special wedding date: 12.13.14 and they were married at 3:16pm (or in military time 15:16pm)  so their actual wedding date and time was 12.13.14 15:16 – kind of awesome, right?!  Stephanie was a stunning bride – her gown was a vintage treasure that fit her perfectly straight off the […]
