Angela + Jason | Backyard wedding | Norfolk, Virginia | Fall Wedding

Angela and Jason wanted their day documented honestly. They wanted photos to reflect their love for: each other, their dogs, friends and family. Which is why…. they hired me! Haha! No fluff. I’d say more but honestly, as a photographic storyteller, the photos tell the story. Scroll through for Angela and Jason’s wedding story.

Nicole + Jack | Mommy and Me Session | The Meadows Frozen Custard | Colonial Williamsburg | Hampton Roads Lifestyle Photographer

I’m so excited to share this fun session of Nicole and Jack. Nicole reached out to me and said she wanted to a have a session with just her and her son, Jack. I asked her to talk about Jack before our session and I was told he was sweet and kind, loved ice cream and they love hanging out together. To make the session about their bond and the things they enjoy together, we began their session at The Meadows Frozen Custard in Williamsburg. Nicole shared how much Jack enjoys paying for the ice cream when they go out and those were the small but honest moments she wanted documented.

It is officially wedding season for this gal and my gosh what a perfect start to the season Melanie and Johnathan’s wedding was. The weeks leading up to the wedding, I had many emails, phone calls and texts with Melanie and Johnathan between their busy schedules. Melanie is a flight attendant and Johnathan is a Marine, so having friends and family travel from all over the world for them was a big deal.

Hindu Wedding | Baraat | Morais Vineyards | Virginia Wedding Photographer | Part I

The wedding took place at the beautiful Morais Vineyards in Bealton, Virginia. I must confess, this was my first baraat and while I prepped myself by watching videos, there really is nothing like being in it and experiencing it for yourself. MY GOSH!! The adrenaline, pride, drum, music, dancing, happy faces, WOW! It was an incredible experience that I am so grateful to have been a part of.

Walker's Overlook | Frederick Maryland Wedding Photographer | Downtown Frederick Maryland

In August I photographed my first wedding in the charming downtown area of Frederick, Maryland for Anna Liz Photography. The day was beautiful, the rain held off and Laura had the most thought out locations picked out for portraits- her grandparents old home located across the street from the church and the building of her grandfather’s old bottle capping company.
