Mandy & Clint


I loved the fall themed wedding day of Mandy & Clint at Twin Lakes State Park in Green Bay, Virginia.  It was my first time there for a wedding and it's such a pretty venue right along the water.  It was a perfectly sunny early October day for their "I Do's".  They incorporated many fall accents throughout their day, and also added many personal touches including an exit on a firetruck … [Read more...]

Kristi & Brandon


What a special event for two pretty special people!  It was a perfect September day at the James River State Park for a small group of the closest friends and family to gather and watch these two say "I do".  It was an indian summer day, and the sunset colors along with late summer color palette, were a perfect match.  Everything about Kristi & Brandon's day was comfortable and relaxed so … [Read more...]

Bridal Personality


Every bride is an individual and unique personality.  Just like the uniqueness of their wedding day, they each come with ideas in mind about their bridal session and how they envision themselves.  Whether it is elegant, country, playful, bold, rustic, or classic they each portray themselves in a different light.  I love how different each bride is... it is a creative challenge I enjoy to bring … [Read more...]

Amber & Brian


By the end of Friday, June 29th, 2012 the entire region had a new word added to their vocabulary: Derecho.  And with only 8 days to spare, regardless of the weather related damages the wedding of Amber and Brian had to go on.  The beautiful campus of Lynchburg College was hit terribly hard.  After a week of campus cleanup it was ready for many friends and family to join them for their … [Read more...]

GW & Debbie


While it looked like it was going to rain all day, the clouds did their best and stayed away from the wedding day of GW and Debbie last month.  Nestled in the woods on a horse farm, they chose to say "I Do" up in the loft of the barn in clear view for everyone to see.  Debbie had no reservations hiking up her dress and showing off her boots underneath to climb her way up the ladder into the loft … [Read more...]
