This beautiful day began in the historic manor house at Belmont Country Club. Abby was showing me her details and then she gave me a gift and told me to open it. I questioned her because it just didn’t seem right for the photographer to be opening a gift on the bride’s wedding day but she insisted! Abby had made me a custom cross-stitch of Michael and I with cameras in our hands! It looks JUST like us and I was just amazed at her talent and thoughtfulness!
Sometimes I wonder how we have been so blessed with amazing couples who love us and truly care about their photography. I’m so incredibly thankful! Abby was a dream KJ Bride! She loves photography, she trusts us completely and she has been following our journey since the very beginning of my business! That’s over a decade!! Throughout the day, we met her friends and family. One by one, different people would come up to me and say “Abby has been WAITING for YEARS to have you as her photographer” and I was humbled over and over again. I’m so grateful for a business and a brand that leads us to the right people!!
As you scroll through their beautiful wedding day, I hope you’ll be able to see in their images just how great of a fit it was for us to work together. I loved every part of this day and I can’t wait to share it with you. From the stunning, all white bridal suite to the willow tree portraits and golden sunset light, this day was a dream!
Tyler and Abby, I hope you’re enjoying your first few days as husband and wife! What a gift it is to call you friends and clients!!! Thank you for entrusting us with this big responsibility!!! Enjoy your day through my eyes!!

32 Years. Over three decades. Can you image the impact? My dad accepted the call to our tiny little part of Virginia when I was just 18mos old.
Off season is here!! For wedding photographers, this is hopefully a time to rest and rejuvenate before busy season kicks back in. This is also a great time to focus on some back-end business tasks you might have had on your plate for a while now.
2021 was a year to remember! I decided to close out YouTube for the year, by reflecting back on life lessons 2021 taught me – what worked, what didn’t and what I hope to remember as I move into 2022.
You guys know talking about the tech side of a photography business is not my expertise… but thankfully it IS Tyler’s!!! I asked him to take over this YouTube video because I want to help you figure out which Mac is going to be the best one for you (even though I shouldn’t be the one to help you with that!!)!
It’s been years since I’ve done a round-up of some of my favorite images from the year! I struggle to narrow these down and so I decided to showcase some of the images with the best candid emotions!
Welcome back to another Behind the Image! In this series I take you behind the scenes of a real wedding day and then analyze one image! Today we’re analyzing an image from a wedding we shot back in May that should NOT have worked…but it did!!
