Hey Gorgeous!

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 […]

My LAST wedding of 2020…and it was such a special one to me. Ellen was a sweet friend of mine in high school, and I was actually friends with her when she STARTED dating Brandon all the way back in 2011! Their wedding was actually originally scheduled for February 2021, but with all the uncertainty […]

This is an exciting blog post for two reasons: 1. It’s my LAST wedding of 2020 but 2. It’s my FIRST ever wedding in Charleston!!! I’ve lived in Charleston for a little over a year now, but I’ve been traveling back to Virginia (and all over the East Coast!) to photograph my weddings. This was […]

This was my SECOND wedding in SIX days after almost 9 months of not shooting a wedding…craziness!! And it felt SO good!!! Kat and Carter got married in Virginia Beach on Saturday, in the midst of a pandemic, and it was the most wonderful day. There were so many sweet and sentimental details throughout the […]

Ya’ll…my first wedding blog post in 9 MONTHS!!! AH! I have not had a wedding since last October thanks to our pal COVID-19. Tess and Tyler’s wedding was actually supposed to be back in mid-May…but it got pushed back because of the virus. These two were such troopers about the entire thing, and they were […]

Earlier this week I shared my Best of Portraits from 2019…and today is all about WEDDINGS! So, if you thought the “Best of Portraits” post was long…buckle up!! Haha! I LOVE going back through my wedding galleries every year. There are so many beautiful moments that unfold at every single wedding that I often forget […]

Build Your Senior Photography Business

I began my business during my junior year of high school, and fell in love with photography while capturing all of my peers and their senior portraits. I built a six-figure photography business on my passion for senior clients - and now I help hundreds of photographers across the globe do the same! 

Free downloads, blog posts, YouTube videos, online courses and memberships... I have it a resource for you!
