I’m writing this as we are driving back home from Trevor and Alyssa’s wedding. Michael is driving and their images are backing up. I wanted to write this while the joy of today is fresh in my mind! We spent today with the sweetest people at one of the quaintest and most charming venues. Trevor is Tyler Herrinton’s brother and so in some ways, it kind of felt like a family wedding to us. It was such an honor to capture their special day…. especially after having to push it back by a year!
Finally getting to watch these two get married felt like such a victory. Because of the pandemic, they had to wait an additional year to have their wedding. It was worth the wait. They got married on a beautiful, sunny day and while it was chilly, it was absolutely perfect. We were obsessed with the florals, the kindness of the staff, the beauty of the venue, the amazing food, and the incredibly high amount of energy that came from such a small guest count. The Manor at Airmont is owned by an incredible family. The parents are the caterers, the planning and florals are done by their daughter, the venue is run by her husband, their kids were helping throughout the entire day in every way and they were doing all of this so well even after having a seven week old! How incredible!
What I loved about this day wasn’t just the amazing colors or the glowy light, it was getting to know more about Tyler’s family and meeting Alyssa’s. The joy and the excitement was overflowing and I think the pandemic and the fact that they had to wait an entire YEAR longer for their big day made it that much sweeter! They were FINALLY married!!!
It was such a fun celebration and we loved getting to see friends and their families all day long! Be sure to find Ty and Ash’s family pic and see their new little guy, Callan. He’s just the cutest. Also, don’t miss the sunset field portraits!!! They were timed perfectly and I cannot WAIT for photographers to get to watch that part of their day (and the rest of their day!) on KJ All Access when this episode airs!!!
Enjoy seeing a visual recap of Trevor and Alyssa’s day and the gorgeous Manor at Airmont!!!! …
Michael’s shots that I love! Sweet little Callan!

Ah! It’s our FINAL STUDENT SPOTLIGHT!!! This July post has been a long time coming but it’s HERE and it’s LIVE and I want you to help me celebrate these amazing photographers who are making their dreams happen!!!
This six month update feels like it’s weirdly disproportionate compared to other monthly updates! Why is that? Well, last month I posted a couple of sets of images that were actually at the beginning of his sixth month and THEN we photographed multiple weddings, had several trips away from home for a few days and the dads were for several days!
Hope and Jesse are the sweetest couple. You can just feel it when you’re with them! You can see it when you watch them interact. You can hear it in the stories that their family members and best friends shared about them. They are truly soulmates and best friends. They have an undeniable love for one another and that is why even a rainy, misty wedding day could be incredibly vibrant, warm and joyful!!
Rhett’s fifth month was full of fun. It’s crazy to me that I know I only take my big camera to about 10% of the things we do in a month and yet each month is SO full.
This beautiful wedding day took place in the rolling hills of West Virginia, just past the Virginia state line. Wild Goose Farm is a venue that I’ve never photographed before and let me tell you, it was a treat! We didn’t even have the sun join us for most of the day and yet we were able to capture beautiful portraits! Between the horses, old fences, stunning estate home, lily pad covered pond, old stone walls, rustic barn, open fields and a historic stone arch, I was in photographer heaven!
This session was just as sweet as it looks. We spent the evening with Megan and Tim in the country outside of Harrisonburg, Virginia. We were tucked away in the rolling hills in between beautiful fields and family farms. It reminded me all over again why I just love Virginia. We really have it all… beaches, mountains, history, and great schools! JMU, while it did play a role in Tim and Megan’s story, isn’t actually where it started!
