Philip and Emma | Engaged!

It was the muggiest day you could imagine in Virginia, and yet Philip and Emma were more than happy to hold hands, hug, and squeeze each other close during their engagement photos. When two people are willing to do that on a crazy-humid summer day, then you know they are in love. 🙂 Photographing the…

I was absolutely thrilled to return to New Mexico over Memorial Day weekend in order to capture Andrew and Alicia’s wedding celebration! Their attention to detail and dedication to their loved ones was phenomenal.

Sam and Katie | Engaged!

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” Sam…

They are both fun-loving people who actually liked my corny humor (which made them an AWESOME couple to photograph!) and who get each other perfectly. I…

Baby Luke | Newborn

Soft skin, puckered lips, precious hands and feet—photographing newborns has to be my new favorite thing! While many newborns are adorable, Luke had to be one of the most perfect little babies I’ve seen. He enjoyed the session without a fuss and even wanted to stay awake for most of it. 😉 He also had a…

Jacob and Holly | Married!

At our pre-wedding planning meeting, I remember Holly saying, “I really hope that there’s some snow on the ground, although not a lot—perhaps just a sprinkle. Enough to make the winter wonderland theme of our wedding complete.” Holly definitely got her wish! Less than 12 hours before the wedding, Purcellville had a dusting of snow,…
