Danny + Megan

A Biltmore Estate Wedding

filed in:

Oh where do I begin? This wasn’t just another wedding for me. This was a legacy KJ Wedding and I have been looking forward to it ever since my first email from Danny and Megan!

What does it mean to be a “Legacy” wedding? I would love to explain! I first met the beautiful Webster family a decade ago when I photographed Melissa and Aaron’s wedding day at The Clifton Inn. Then, we had the honor of capturing Dan and Melanie’s gorgeous winter wedding at the Boston Library!

This past weekend, I photographed Danny and Megan’s amazing wedding at the stunning Biltmore Estate! All three sisters were KJ Brides and I just can’t express how special that is to me. It felt like the sweetest reunion as soon as I walked into the bridal suite. Mrs. Webster hugged me as if I was a family member that she hadn’t seen in a while and the sisters and I picked up right where we left off in Boston! It felt like so much had changed and yet it also seemed like nothing had changed at all. The reality is, a pandemic happened right after Dan and Melanie’s wedding, sweet Lila looks so grown up and is four years older and Megan has found the love of her life!!

 There is one other special piece to this story. ALL THREE sisters were married on Mr. and Mrs. Webster’s anniversary. I rarely book February weddings but when I do, it’s normally for a Webster sister!! :)  Beautiful portraits with the Biltmore House were captured, joyful and tearful toasts were given, memories were made and Danny and Megan were married! It was all so wonderful and I’m so sad that we have like 20 years until it’s Lila’s turn!!! :) Enjoy this recap of the day!

Composition Course Family SHoot

Composition at a Family Shoot with little kids!

As a professional photographer, I’ve had the privilege of capturing countless family portraits over the years. Each session presents a unique set of challenges, from managing energetic children to finding the perfect backdrops.


As a photographer, I’ve often found myself in situations where the location seemed lackluster or uninspiring. It’s easy to get caught up in the pursuit of the perfect setting, but the reality is that we don’t always have the luxury of shooting in the most visually stunning locations.

The Smith Family Pharsalia Farm Family Portrait

We rescheduled this shoot with the Smith family once because of a threat of rain. It wasn’t a totally horrible forecast but if there’s one thing that I learned about Colleen when I photographed her wedding, it’s that she loves the GLOW!
