Wine lovers- this one is for you!! Today’s post is going to be a long one, but I’m excited to share all about our recent getaway to Napa Valley, California as well as some trip planning tips for visiting the valley. A little background- to put it simply, Patrick and I LOVE wine. And beyond […]

Recently I’ve been getting quite a few questions from other photographers and friends about what gear I use to shoot wedding days. Personally, I’ve always loved reading other photographers “What’s In My Bag” posts, so I’m so excited to finally share my own gear lineup today! Before we get started there are two important things […]

For anyone who has been following the blog for awhile, these two may look familiar! Cierra and Jordan first stepped in front of my camera last August for their one year wedding anniversary session which turned into a pregnancy announcement! (You can see that blog post here!) And now, they’re only weeks away from meeting […]

Tatum and Brice were married on a beautiful, overcast winter day at Grant Hill Farms in Commerce, Georgia. It was one of those days where we were keeping a close eye on the weather as rain showers came and went. I’m a big believer that rain on your wedding day can be such a good […]

One of my favorite parts about going home for the holidays (Northern Virginia is “home” for me!) is getting to shoot at so many of my favorite locations around the Washington DC area! One of those locations I’m just so in love with is Old Town Alexandria in Virginia! This charming town right on the […]

Bailey and Will had a LOT to celebrate this month and I was honored that they hired me for a portrait session amidst the craziest few weeks of their lives!! Bailey graduated from Emory’s nursing school, Will returned from deployment, they got MARRIED, honeymooned, AND moved to Alaska… all within the last month!!! It seriously […]

Holy cow… where did 2019 go?! How is it already the last day of the year?! I feel like I blinked and this decade is OVER! 2019 was maybe one of my favorite years yet. It was filled with a whole lot of growth for my business, lots of travel– (including my first solo trip […]

  There is nothing I love more than when my couples turn into sweet friends… and that’s exactly what has happened with these two! I actually first met Lauren and Kyle through my husband, Patrick. Patrick, Lauren, and Kyle all work within the insurance industry and Patrick and Kyle have worked together over the years. […]

In case you missed it, last week I shared my first holiday gift guide of 2019– Holiday Gift Guide for Her! Today, I’m sharing part II of my gift guides with a holiday gift guide for creative women!
