Amy and Paul/ VA Wedding Photographer

When Amy asked me to photograph her wedding I was super happy, not just because she asked me but also because she was getting married and I couldn't have been happier for her. Amy and I met at college in the music department, being both music majors and both members of our sorority, Sigma Alpha Iota, i knew Amy was a awesome person, inside and out and a AMAZING piano player. When Amy told me about Paul and that he was also a photographer, I got a little nervous~ but she told me that everything would be wonderful and not to worry, so of course i did :) BUT i just hope that you guys enjoy your sneak peak. Thank you so much for asking me to capture your special day!! Congrats!!

B Newborn/ Virginia Newborn Photographer

Meet Baby B. He is 8 days old and so cute!! I couldn't have asked for a better newborn session. He slept most of the time and was only starting to get hungry when I was taking the last of his portraits. I LOVE squishy, little newborn babies. I could photograph them all day long. Congrats mom and dad, you have a very handsome son and thank you for allowing me to photograph his newborn portraits! Enjoy your sneak peak.
