2017 Recap | Virginia Wedding Photographer

Sekaija’s senior session at one of my favorite vineyards in Charlottesville was absolute perfection. We got some gorgeous morning light (accompanied by lots of wind!) and completely empty grounds to explore. I loved getting to hang out with Sekaija and her mom for her senior portraits. I can’t believe the Class of 2017 is already preparing for their time to shine!

Sekaija – 2017 Senior Session | Charlottesville, Virginia

We got a day with gorgeous weather, backgrounds full of greenery and rolling hills, a horse drawn carriage, purple details (my favorite!), and lots of authentic love. To top it all off, I got to work alongside some amazing vendors to help make Dennis and Jacki’s wedding day perfect.

Jacki & Dennis | Shenandoah Crossing Resort Wedding

I was counting down the days to this wedding ever since I met David and Nicole for their engagement session in Richmond. They are two of the most down-to-earth people I’ve ever met and I absolutely loved photographing their special day.  The day started at a church in Keswick and then we headed over to the DoubleTree Hotel in Charlottesville for their celebration.

David & Nicole | Charlottesville, VA Wedding

Lauren graduated from UVA’s School of Nursing, which is not an easy feat. Just look at the all the stoles and cords around her neck! Both of these ladies worked hard during the past four years and it has all paid off in wonderful ways. These two sweet, gorgeous graduates are moving on to AMAZING things and I wish them both all the best! Congratulations Keelin and Lauren!

Keelin and Lauren | Graduation Photo Session | Charlottesville, VA

ake a second to pop over to the photos application on your phone. How many photos do you have? A few hundred? Maybe even a few thousand? I have 1,194. If you’re like me, those photos just sit on your phone until a random moment when you go searching for a random memory. Keeping an album on your phone is great because you have all of your pictures easily saved in one central location. However, don’t let an Instagram picture with a few hundred likes be the last time your photos see the light of day. Print them. Printing your photographs is a quick, easy way to take advantage of your memories. You can frame your prints, use them as bookmarks, or send them to friends far away at college. You can get incredibly creative with prints, just consult Pinterest!

Why You Should Print Your Memories| Virginia Wedding & Portrait Photographer

Nabeela is one of my 2016 seniors, and she definitely brought her personality into her photos. From the outfits she chose to some of our more fun “show me your favorite pose” shots, I got to capture the real her. In the end, that’s more important than any pose or editing style. I loved exploring some new locations downtown and hearing all about her plans for college. She plans to become a teacher and I just know that she’s going to be the “cool” teacher that students always love.

Nabeela | Fredericksburg Senior Session

These past two years have taught me a lot about relying on God’s timing. When I applied for college, everything seemed to make sense and nothing was going to stop me from reaching my goal of working at the top of a Fortune 500 company. That was my idea of success. Then, somewhere along the way, I realized that dream wasn’t necessarily unrealistic, but it wasn’t what my heart truly desired.

What’s New? | Virginia Wedding & Portrait Photographer

My gorgeous, fabulous mom (and twin) turned 50 last week. We decided that one of the best ways to celebrate is with a photoshoot. We brought my sister, Karlisa, along and it made for a fun girl’s day! This was my first time shooting at Mary Washington University and I love the perfect modern backdrops that their buildings provide.
