A Natural Bridge Wedding

  • Cody + Mindy

You just met these two!! A few weeks ago I was shooting a wedding outside of Lynchburg and the next morning I met Cody and Mindy for their engagement session since they were close by! Mindy had already sent me some pics of the two of them and so I knew how adorable they were ahead of time! However, I was not only blown away at their exterior beauty but I fell in love with who they are as a couple. They are just amazing! The more I learn about them, the more I love them. On the wedding day, Mindy told me that her dad had a rule that Cody needed to live in the same area as Mindy for at least a year before they were engaged. I love this because I like daddy’s that are protective over their girls. My dad never had a rule like that but he definitely had expectations for who I chose to spend the rest of my life with. He wanted me to be taken care of and treated well.

The Big Day!

  • The New House

can’t believe it!! I’m typing this blog post out in our new home. It’s so surreal. I feel like we were just driving around neighborhoods and dreaming of what it would be like to BUILD a house!! I never thought that this would be something that we would do and so this opportunity really took us by surprise. While we didn’t dream about BUILDING, we did dream about what we wanted to be able to accomplish with our home one day. We wanted our home to be used and when God blessed us with the cute little house on Cutler Ridge 2.5 years ago, we used it WELL. There were so many high schoolers and guests coming in and out of that house that we had to replace the carpet!

  • Meet Alia

know those families that are just jam packed with talent? Well, the Prasad family is one of those families. I remember when we first started coming to Gayton (Our church) and I couldn’t believe how much Kristin (Alia’s mom) was in charge of! Kristin is on full time staff at GBC and she keeps that place rolling! Not only was I impressed with Kristin, her children are quite impressive as well. Alia is incredible on the violin!! Despite her busy school schedule and soccer schedule, she makes time to play at church constantly! And not only is she musically talented, she’s brilliant!! Alia has a scholarship to Vanderbilt
