Think of everything a fairytale wedding should be for a pink and monogram loving girl and that was Charlene and Matt’s day…it couldn’t have been more beautiful! From her wedding dress to the fluffy bouquet full of peonies to the gorgeous centerpieces at the reception…everything was decorated and planned to perfection. And I didn’t expect anything less…Charlene plans to become a wedding planner and I’m so excited for her to bring that dream to life! Matt is always supportive of her and I love the way they compliment each other perfectly.
It’s so hard to believe that two weeks ago we were experiencing snow storms and freezing temps in Virginia and this week we started to get a small taste of spring with some warmer weather! I’m so happy that I got to shoot one snowy wedding this year though before it started to warm up…the snow added so much magic to Steven and Leah’s portraits!
It was absolutely freezing and I’m so thankful that they were willing to brave the cold to capture pretty images on their special day…they’ve been dating for over 6 years and it was so exciting to see so many of their friends and family come together to celebrate their new marriage

At some point as I was going through 2014 weddings to update my portfolio, I gave up trying to narrow down the images…I have way too many favorites! I love the process of looking through old wedding posts because it takes me back to some of my favorite moments of the year and reminds me why I love my job so much! I get to be a part of one of the most joyful days in a couple’s lives and I never take that for granted. It is such a huge blessing.
This year was a year of refinement for me in my business and it’s so fun for me to look back and see how my
I think there are a few times in life when you meet people that you know are just going to be a part of it forever…no matter how far away they move or how long it’s been since you’ve seen them…Bradford is one of those people for us! He is Ryan’s best friend from high school and since I started dating Ryan in 11th grade, I’ve gotten to see him grow up..and it was such a huge honor for me to get to photograph his wedding day! This wedding is so dear to my heart and it was such a perfect way to end the year! Bradford moved to North Carolina after college to pursue his passion for leading worship at a
