Buckle up…this is a long one!! It’s my LAST wedding of the 2021 season, and I went to high school with this sweet couple…so I may have added a few extra favorites into the blog post! I don’t even know where to start with how beautiful this day was. Not just visually at the breathtaking […]

I have spent MONTHS looking forward to photographing Jules and Zach’s Charleston wedding day! I photographed Jules’ sister’s wedding last year (the adorable Kat and Carter), so I knew Jules’s family before even coming into this wedding day. They are so full of genuine kindness and joy…it is such an honor to witness and be […]

I knew Annie and Ben’s wedding day was going to be special from the moment I met them at their Richmond engagement session. We did their engagement photos all the way back in January 2020…and their wedding date had to be rescheduled not ONCE, but TWICE. These two have been together for over 11 years […]

This wedding day has been a LONG time coming!!! Courtney and Ross’s big day was originally scheduled for April 2020. When that date obviously could not happen…they rescheduled not once, not twice…but 3 TIMES!! They patiently waited for this day to arrive for over one full year…and I think it made it that much sweeter. […]

I have been looking forward to this day for over a year now!!! I first met Austin and Tony in person at their engagement session, and I immediately adored them. The way they love each other, Austin’s attention to detail and her joyful personality made me feel like I was just hanging out with one […]

My first wedding to kick off the spring season of 2021 was SUCH a special one. Amelia and Trevor are the type of couple that radiate joy everywhere they go. You can just SEE how much they love each other in every way they interact…and it’s so special. I photographed their engagement session in Charleston […]

My FIRST wedding post of 2021…and it’s unique for a very special reason. Zach and Kelsey are an INCREDIBLE couple. I met them for the first time on their wedding day (which is not typical for my weddings!) but they immediately radiated joy. The way that they love each other is SO sweet…and their wedding […]

This blog post is a special one!! Each year, I spend HOURS curating every single image I took that year to find the best of the best. I spent weeks going through thousands and thousands of images to find my absolute favorites…and I’m so excited for you to scroll through! Typically, I do a separate […]
