A Stonewall Golf Club Wedding

  • Beau + Jourdan

The next two weeks are PRIME time for fall colors. The trees are BRIGHT and the light is soft. It’s amazing. As Jill and I prepared for the wedding day to begin, we talked about portrait locations and the opportunities were endless. Bright trees, water, glowy light… it was just an overall beautiful day! Beau and Jourdan were married on Friday at the Stonewall Golf Club in Gainesville, VA. The patio where the ceremony took place overlooks the course and a lake….it’s a perfect setting for a small, intimate wedding. As guests arrived and the music started playing, the bride and her girls prepped inside the clubhouse. Now this bridal party wasn’t just any bridal party,


Downtown Roanoke Engagement Shoot

how I had never been to Roanoke before. You you’ve lived in the same state your whole life, you would think that I would have at least driven through Roanoke at some point but I hadn’t! I heard people mention Roanoke and I thought to myself, “Oh, it must be a little town in the mountains”.  I had no idea what to expect! As I drove into the city at 7:45am last Thursday, I was shocked to find that Roanoke is a CITY!! Complete with tall buildings, one way streets and A LOT of hills! Since this was a sunrise shoot (my first one actually!), I was proud of myself for finding my way there!  We all know that mornings are not my favorite part of the day


The Pursuit 31 Conference 2012

  • A Recap

supposed to describe an extraordinary week filled with people I love, new friends, amazing sessions, incredible worship and GREAT food all in one blog post?? It’s simply impossible. There is no way I could possibly share everything that I learned and experienced at the Pursuit 31 Conference here on this blog.  I guess that means those of you who are curious will just have to come NEXT YEAR and find our for yourselves!! Seriously though, you should go. Yes, this is a christian women’s conference but if you’re someone who would describe yourself as “I’m not really sure I know where I stand with all the “God” stuff”… you should come….
