After our triple header weekend in October, we left our third wedding and drove straight to Lexington. We went to Big Spring Farm and spent the night. We slept in, did a few things to prep the blog posts for that week and then we packed the car and went on an adventure! CAMPING!! My parents have had an RV since I was born. Pop-ups, Trailers, Class-C’s, Class A’s… we’ve tried them all! We went camping when we were growing up instead of renting beach houses or going to Disneyland and I wouldn’t have ever wanted it to be any different.
Because Daddy still has a camper that our family uses several times a year, we asked if the four of us could use it and go on a little adventure! Of course Kevin James said yes and so off we went!! West Virginia here we come! We pulled out of the farm and the adventure began!! We were headed to Burning Rock…. that’s right….our final destination was FOUR WHEELER TRAILS!!!! It may have been cold and rainy but that didn’t keep us from having a blast! We rode four wheelers up and down the mountainside all day, had a campfire at night, made the most amazing dinner, played games and just relaxed in the middle of no where!! Some people would want to finish a triple header and just sleep for 4 days and that did sound nice…. but hanging out in the mountains with our best friends was the absolute BEST way to celebrate the end of our wedding season!!! :)
Jilly made a little video on her IPHONE of our trip and we love it! She’s AMAZING! Ps. If you love this.. you’ll love following her on INSTAGRAM!! Enjoy the video! …. Especially the ending… we worked REALLY hard on that part. :) Enjoy a little snapshot of our trip!!!
First pit-stop… we didn’t start our journey on the healthiest note!
We made a few stops along the way for some views! … And some jumping!
Sandstone Falls! Gorgeous!
If anyone wants to know how we took group photos…. this is how on the left! We also stuck a knife in the tree and rested the phone on it!
They were so proud of themselves! haha
Inside our little home!
I can’t believe I’m going to show you these! :) I was looking rough!
Muddy faces! Cold toes! Warm hearts…. haha JK, that’s so cheesy. But seriously, we had a great time!
What a view!

When I’m scrolling on Instagram or looking through images after a shoot, some images just stand out and capture my attention more than others!
I don’t know if I have ever photographed a more gracious bride in the most horrendous heat! Seriously, Kelsey is a literal angel on earth. She brought her entire family to Virginia from South Dakota for this portrait session and was so incredibly kind even in the midst of 100 degree heat and humidity!
Lenses are NOT cheap, so when you invest, you want to make sure you’re choosing the best option!
If you think about a wedding day and the part that makes you cringe is having to interact and direct the groomsmen, I get it.
This was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I have ever seen, but the timeline didn’t quite pan out like we had planned.. The rings got lost, hair & makeup went long, storms were rolling in and there were some stressful moments!
You’re not going to believe this but this session was probably our easiest DC engagement session to date! We had glow, no crowed, a beautiful setting and the most wonderful couple!
