Wedding First Look | Virginia Wedding Photographer

August 06, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
One of the most common questions I get asked as a wedding photographer is, "Should we do a first look?!" From my own wedding, as well as shooting many weddings, I would say, "yes, Yes, and YES!" My top 3 reasons to do so are... #1 You have a private moment together. At the ceremony you have everyone there, and there is just no time to enjoy t...

Podgayskiy & Shumeyko | Children's Lifestyle Session

August 02, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
Here's another annual Myrtle Beach vacation in the books. As the parents are having kid-free time, grandparents are using this time wisely, taking photos of their grandchildren. Honestly, I'm amazed how well they got them to "look at the camera", because that is no easy task. Here are some my favorite shots from our week...

Shumeyko & Podgayskiy | Family Beach Session

July 28, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
It's the most wonderful time of the year! Summer vacation, that is. This time around our annual photo shoot happened on 4th Milana's birthday, so double the awesomeness. We had so much fun getting the kids to look at the camera and put on their best smile (please read in sarcastic tone of voice). Nevertheless, it was another amazing time together!...

Kortney + Cody | Wedding | Lydia's Barn at Evermore Farm

July 12, 2018  •  1 Comment
What was an extremely rainy spring in Virginia, Kortney and Cody's wedding was still very beautiful. The rain held off long enough for us to capture gorgeous portraits outside, and everyone had a amazing day, regardless. I loved each elegantly chosen detail and the fun bridal party. The drive to Lydia Mountain Lodge is absolutely stunning. The pict...

Davidson Family | Bridgewater Arboretum

May 18, 2018  •  1 Comment
One of my favorite things about being a photographer is getting to see families again and again. Being a photographer is not just taking a photo, but it is an experience of connecting with others. Life isn't always perfect, however, regardless of what is going on in life, it's nice to see an image and remember all that was happening in that time of...

Their wedding is less than a month away - the s...

Glover Family | Harrisonburg, VA

April 12, 2018  •  1 Comment
The Glover family was simply a joy to be with. We had so much fun capturing their personalities full of energy and excitement. Their love for each other is evident in every photo! As we drove up to the AirBnb of the family reunion, I was reminded of how beautiful the Shenandoah Valley is. A place I see as home, someone comes here for vacation. Enj...

Growing up, my 3 best friends all happened to be my cousins. Sadly, all 3 of them moved away to various states: WA, MN, and NC, but time to time they come to visit! The nearest one is Lyuda in Charlotte, NC. However, she decided to have her big 3-0 birthday party here in VA. After all, her parents and most siblings are here. It was really exciting...

Amanda + Richard | Engagement | JMU

February 09, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
Amanda and Richard met at JMU, so as during their shoot, we learned all about the campus. We learned all about the kissing rock and that James Madison was 5'4". Even though they live an hour or so away, they wanted to capture their engagement photos at the place where their love story began. We wish them a wonderful winter wedding and a blessed mar...
