Inn at the Old Silk Mill Wedding - Sarah and Chris

May 03, 2017  •  4 Comments
I’m so excited to share these and Sarah’s photos from her bridal session that I’m having somewhat of a case “bloggers block” thinking of a way to begin this post. So, I’m just going to dive right in. This wedding day was awesome! Looking at the photos I feel the same joy I felt during the day from everyone there. There was so much sincerity, camara...

Shenandoah Park Engagement Session // Claudia and Thomas

April 12, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
Thomas and Claudia’s engagement session was epic for a lot of reasons. I always say that engagement sessions themselves are my favorite way to get to know my couples so I look forward to them for more reasons than just photos. It’s definitely the best way to see how they interact with one another and to help understand my process as well. On weddin...

The Osprey's at Belmont Bay Wedding // Paul and Heather

March 29, 2017  •  1 Comment
Heather and Paul are definitely going down in the books as one of the cutest couples ever! So much so that their Pastor broke from his planned oratory and asked the audience himself, “aren’t they just the cutest!?!” It’s not necessarily the type of personality trait you’d expect to see in a Marine but after having photographed a fair number of Mari...

Stevenson Ridge Wedding - Jennifer and Vincent

March 22, 2017  •  1 Comment
Jennifer and Vincent’s pre spring wedding kicked off my 2017 with a bag! Their venue choice of Stevenson Ridge provided the perfect backdrop for their big day complete with a rain-enhanced sparkler send off and a beautiful bald eagle fly over. Jennifer was not to be out done by her surroundings and looked absolutely stunning and Vincent, with studl...

Full Time Photographer... Part Time Photographer, Full Time Dad

February 16, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
Full time photographer … Part time photographer - Full time dad What a difference a few years can make, understatement of the decade! There I was ironing my shirt getting ready for work on one fateful February morning when my phone rang. On the other end was a messenger who changed my life, or at least accelerated my plan for it, considerably. I h...

Jinger Duggar Wedding Dress - Ava Laurenne Bride - Renee's Bridal

January 16, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
Super friendly, totally down to earth and really nice… That’s the answer to the first question everyone asks when it’s mentioned I met Jinger Duggar, her mom, her now mother in law and several of her sisters, “what were they like!?!” I guess that’s kinda normal right? Kinda… When I heard Jinger Duggar was coming to Fredericksburg and visiting Ava...

The Boathouse at Sunday Park // Madison and Nathan Wedding

July 04, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
Best.Day.Ever. Even if no one said it I'm certain everyone was thinking it. Madison and Nathan's wedding was one of the most joy filled celebrations I've ever photographed. I'm not sure if I've seen a bride and groom so overwhelmed with excitement and happiness. There we're so many smiles, hugs and laughs during the day it was impossible not to get...

Fredericksburg Square Wedding // Tabatha and Ryan

June 20, 2016  •  1 Comment
Tabatha and Ryan's wedding was a stunning event. Hosted at beautiful Fredericksburg Square, the weather played a part of the ceremony location but in my opinion made it even more beautiful! The ballroom was the perfect background for them to exchange vows. And while they wasted no time getting to their first kiss the moment was one to savor for all...

June 01, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
The Inn at the Old Silk Mill is one of my favorite venues in Downtown Fredericksburg and Kait and Tom's wedding quickly became one of my favorite weddings to date. I met them months ago at the summer bridal show at the Silk Mill and hit it off with them. We later met for their consultation and then again for their engagement session and had a great...

Creeks Edge Winery // Brittany and Cody

April 28, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
I've really enjoyed getting to know Brittany and Cody over the past year or so. It was obvious during our initial consultation that they were totally in love and an incredibly sweet couple. It was a little...mysterious to me at first why they wanted to get married in February but learning that they were from Vermont and Wisconsin made it all make s...

Celebrations at the Reservoir Wedding // Valerie and Kevin

February 03, 2016  •  1 Comment
I had not been to Celebrations at the Reservoir before, so when I met Valerie and Kevin there a few weeks before their wedding to give them their engagement album we walked the property and selected a handful of spots for photographs on their wedding day. The property is absolutely stunning and complemented their style perfectly. Peggy and I met th...

St John Neumann Catholic Church, Richmond Double Tree Wedding // Kelly and Walter

January 26, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
Peggy and I met Kelly and her mom at the Richmond Wedding Experience Bridal Show last winter and hit it off. They asked me a few situational question I found hilarious and apparently answered favorably. I later met Walter during their engagement session at Great Ship Lock Park in Richmond last summer. Their session was one of my favorites not only...

Belle Grove Plantation Wedding // Cyndi and Todd

January 19, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
Cyndi and Todd's wedding day was true reflection of who they are as a couple. In some ways it was so simple while in others there were perfect pops of personality and flair. After having gotten to know them over the last 10 months or so I'd say it was so in tune with who they are. Peggy and I met Cyndi at a few bridal shows in Fredericksburg where...

Hopyard Farm Wedding // Carrie and Nick

October 28, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Peggy and I were really looking forward to this Hopyard Farm wedding since we are friends with the Henkel's from attending Lifepoint Church. They are such a great family and we felt so honored when they chose us to photograph Nick and Carrie's wedding. I think the thing I remember most about the lead up to the day was Carrie's excitement level. Eve...

Williamsburg Wedding // Amanda and Jeremy

October 14, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
From August 22, 2015 Peggy and I met Amanda and her mother at two bridal shows in the Fredericksburg area. In between the shows we had not heard from them but during the second they let us know that they intended on using us for the upcoming wedding. It was a funny moment because while they did indeed let us know they thought our work was real...
