I have a special place in my heart for this gem of a family. Cam & Meg were among the first people I photographed when I picked up a “nice” camera several years ago. They had only been married a short while when they found out they were pregnant with their oldest, Flora. They were […]
I love the photographer community in Hampton Roads. It is full of life and a friendly community. Rather than fierce competition, I have found that the local photographers are some of my cherished friends. I recently worked with Cortese Photography and Film as a second photographer for a classic city wedding at Common House in […]
My good friend, Monica from Monica Lebell Photography, recently had a baby, so I stepped in to photograph a few of her weddings as her associate photographer. This one was such a beautiful day! Alyssa & Jesse had so many meaningful details for their wedding. They opted for a morning wedding, which led to such […]

Luckily, I’ve worked on my portrait session flow and knew that 20 minutes is more than enough time to capture the best of each couple. We made […]
10 years of marriage and I still get butterflies when I think about my husband. The good kind, of course. The kind that Colbie Caillat sang about in 2009 that starts in my toes and makes me crinkle my nose. The flutters are still there after a decade together and they are even more sweet […]
