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!!

Starting a school for our kids and community was going to be a big undertaking, we knew that! But we have learned so much alongside our kids that has made this endeavor all worth it.
It’s hard for me to remember the last time that I took portraits at the infamous Virginia Tech Duck Pond but I know it had to have been several years ago!
It’s no surprise that this GORGEOUS wedding was picked up by BRIDES Magazine! Between the perfectly paired color scheme, beautiful florals, an amazing venue, the list goes on. The details that Paige + Nikhil thought about for their wedding day are simply stunning.
I walked into the venue for the welcome dinner.. And I knew it was going to be dark.. But I didn’t think it would be THIS DARK!
There are several seasons of starting a business and what it looks like to continue to grow and scale as the business changes! We’re on the last episode of the Startup Series and the stage of business that I’m still in.
Can a professional photographer use the Canon RF 50mm 1.8 or is it necessary to have the high end Canon RF 50mm1.2L? We’re going to put them to the test to find out!
