Annapolis Wedding: Brad + Alyssa

Why not start 2019 off with blogging more? Since my next wedding isn’t until April this year, I have a lot of time (hopefully) during maternity leave to blog all the weddings and engagement shoots from 2018. So, expect more blogging from me this year! That IS IF I can get on a good schedule […]

Married: Josh + Cara, Airlie, VA

Can the weather just agree to NOT rain the rest of wedding season, please? May was the worst month for all the May brides. It seemed as though it rained EVERY weekend. But, that didn’t stop those couples from enjoying the most amazing day of their lives. And this was true for Cara and Josh […]

Married: Amy + Mark, Old Silk Mill

If ever there was such a joyful and laid back couple, it was Amy + Mark. Amy found me when I was at the beginning of restarting my business again on Thumbtack. I sent her a quote and then quickly deleted the app because I didn’t have much luck with it and was getting frustrated. […]

Chesapeake, VA: Sheradyn + Ryan

  Can I mention for a second how much in common I have with this amazing bride?!?  I was so excited to get to know this stunning girl more. She and I are both from Michigan, we both hate winter, and we both love Cedar Point, but hate rollercoasters. Also, she played soccer for University […]

Chesapeake Wedding: Luke + Karina

So this is literally the fourth time I’ve had to rewrite this blog. The first few times it didn’t save when I walked away from my computer and now it didn’t get switched over to my new blog. A few weeks ago, I had the utmost privilege to capture the story of Karina + Luke’s […]
