A Forest Hill Park Engagement Session

Forest Hill Park I absolutely ADORE Forest Hill Park. In fact, when my husband, Jonathan, and I had our own maternity pictures taken, I couldn’t think of a more idyllic spot! Located just south of the James River, Forest Hill Park pretty much has a little bit of everything for everyone. With it’s wide open fields,...

    Carli & Rafy’s Wedding Day

    Carli & Rafy’s Wedding Day When I first met Carli and Rafy, Carli made one thing very clear: their wedding day was to be one of true authenticity. No “recreating” special moments, no “candid but posed” shots, just true, organic, unaltered moments capturing the first day of the rest of their lives. And I’d never...

      A Tuckahoe Plantation Elopement

      Tuckahoe Plantation I love finding a photography location as sweet and beautiful as the couple I’m photographing there! Located just a short 20 minute drive from the Museum District in Richmond, Virginia, Tuckahoe Plantation is a world all its own. When you turn down Tuckahoe Plantation’s gorgeous tree-lined entrance, a mile’s drive will find you...

So when Nina told me she wanted to venture to York River State Park, a place neither of us had ever been, I excitedly jumped at the possibility to scout a new location! York River State Park is located in Williamsburg, Virginia....

            A Japanese Gardens Engagement Session

            Monica & Roland This week I had the pleasure of photographing Monica and Roland in Maymont Park’s Japanese Gardens. Both aficionados of Japanese culture, this sweet couple was excited to find themselves amongst the Japanese Gardens’ gorgeous maples and its Azalea bushes, bamboo stalks, hosta plants, and cedar and dogwood trees. AND the Japanese Gardens at...

              Audrey & Sam When I asked Audrey and Sam about their perfect location for their engagement session, one particular spot came to mind – Gravelly Point Park. Gravelly Point is a beautiful park overlooking the Washington Monument just south of the river in Washington, DC. Gravelly Point is also a super unique place since it’s located...

                    Sometimes the most last minute sessions prove to be the most fun :). Angela contacted me a few weeks ago to inquire about my availability just a few short days later.
