We hope you grab some coffee (or a diet coke, in my case) and enjoy viewing our latest work, browsing resources for photographers, and getting a little peek into our life!  Read more...

Honeymoon Planning

  • Wedding Wednesday

Michael proposed and we started planning our wedding! If you have never heard the proposal story…. let me just say, it’s my all time favorite:). After making our gigantic guest list, I was a little overwhelmed and so I told Michael to plan the honeymoon…. the WHOLE thing. I didn’t want to know anything. Just take me somewhere and I trust you completely! However, we did talk about a location and what we liked and didn’t like and we realized that neither one of us wanted to go sit on a beach all week. It just isn’t us! I have a hard time doing absolutely NOTHING and to top it off, I don’t TAN! At ALL! Not even a little bit. I’m a redhead!

Harrisonburg Wedding Photographer

  • Travis + Molly

have driven through the mountains so many times over the past three years since I started this business.  We  pass by rolling hills and amazing scenery and I ALWAYS make a comment like “Ohh I wish I had a bride up on that hill!”.  Some spots just seem so perfect for portraits and yet I have to drive right past them, only hoping to have a bride and groom willing to walk up and shoot on the top of a perfect hill one day. Well, last week, my dream came true! Molly and her husband Travis got back into their wedding attire after being married for a few years and having TWO KIDS! Aren’t they awesome?!

Harrisonburg Wedding Photographer

  • The Whitmore Family

me a few months ago and explained that she was a photographer in Harrisonburg, Virginia and that she had followed my work for a while. Then she explained that she had gotten married a few years ago and there were only a handful of pictures that she really LOVED! What?! AH!!! So she wanted to get back into her wedding attire and have a fun shoot with her husband! So that’s exactly what we did!!! Now that you’re excited about their “Day after” session (really more like “Years After” session:)……. I’m going to make you wait!! I’m so mean, I know. Today I’m posting their beautiful family
