Andrew + Caitlin | Engaged

  • A Jefferson Park Engagement Shoot

There are a few things happening in my life that make me feel old. I know, I know…. 27 isn’t OLD…. but I’m getting closer and closer to the big 3-0 and it’s kinda freaking me out a little bit!! I don’t realize how fast time is flying by until I do things like photograph my college roommate’s little sister’s weddings… x3! I remember when these girls were in high school and now they’re getting married!! When I was in college, I remember traveling up to PA to stay with Steph’s family for the weekend and Caitlin was still in high school. We kind of knew each other back then but it wasn’t until Caitlin graduated and came down to CNU that I really felt like we got to KNOW her and it turns out, she’s just as awesome as her sister. :)

Come Together

  • We're Joining Forces : KJ & Amy and Jordan!

Normally, it’s late… because 9pm AZ time is midnight our time! Normally we’re not in our best attire and we look like we’ve been hit by a Mac truck. Normally we have a billion other things going on and hoping on Facetime to laugh at Jordan Demos’s one-liners doesn’t seem like a top priority… but it is. You see, thee are some friendships that are more than just a friendly face and a text on your birthday. Deep, meaningful friendships should move you, push you and nudge you to be the BEST you can possibly be… and that’s who Jordan and Amy are to us.

Alex + Laura | Engaged

  • Big Spring Farm Engagement Photos | Lexington, VA

When Jill and I were sitting in her living room just throwing ideas out into the wind, we never imagined or visualized what last Friday would look like. Last Friday was surreal in many ways. There were many moments that made me stop and take in what was happening. Jill and I decided back in January that we wanted to do a “Wedding Giveaway”. We told the boys our idea and because we have awesome husbands that let us dream big, they started helping us plan. After a few days of planning, we realized that this wasn’t a simple task. Hosting a Wedding Giveaway included contracts and vendors and date selection and social media management and timelines and so on and so forth. It was…. intense.
