Having just relocated to the area, B&T were excited to incorporate some of Virginia’s loveliest locations into their engagement portraits. And since there are few Virginia locations as beautiful and historic as America’s Historic Triangle, we meandered down Duke of Gloucester street for the couple’s Colonial Williamsburg engagement photos. Here are some of my favorites […]

Here are some images from S&E’s Jenison wedding at Ridgewood CRC and Fairway CRC outside Grand Rapids, Michigan. Between the “I dos” and the “Let’s dance,” we also made a bonus stop at Wallinwood Springs Golf Club, another one of the loveliest Jenison wedding venues. So much goes into the planning of a wedding and, […]

Here are images from M&S’s winter engagement photo session at Wintergreen Resort and Bold Rock Cider outside Charlottesville, VA. The couple had their heart set on snowy winter engagement photos, but what happens when there’s no snow for the engagement session? Easy! You head to the nearest ski resort and make your own winter wonderland. […]

CNU Wedding at Pope Chapel

February 23, 2017

One of my favorite things in the world is to hunker down in the middle of a crazy storm, spending time with loved ones and enjoying some amazing comfort food. As Hurricane Matthew bore down on Hampton Roads and Christopher Newport University, A&D’s CNU wedding at Pope Chapel transformed into exactly that. If it’s good […]

A&T, who insist I call them T&A πŸ™Š, planned a beautiful autumn-inspired Ballroom at McKay wedding in downtown Grand Rapids. McKay Tower is an iconic silhouette in the GR skyline, making it one of the most historic wedding venues in Grand Rapids, MI. The day began in the original Pantilind wing of the Amway Grand […]

Whether you’re planning an outdoor beach wedding on the lake, a Michigan vineyard wedding, or selecting one of the many Michigan wedding barns, TC is an excellent choice for a celebration. With so […]

Here are some images from a family portrait session down in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. One of the side benefits of seeing people through their wedding experience is watching their families continue to grow over the years. Never too busy to shift from wedding photographer to family portrait photographer for the day. πŸ™‚

When Harry Met Sally taught us that “when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” And that’s exactly how J&A’s surprise proposal in St. Lucia turned into J&A’s surprise post-engagement celebration instead. πŸ™‚ After their engagement […]

The New Year began with a bang when I opened my email and discovered I’d been named to The Knot’s Best of Weddings 2017. This is the eighth consecutive year that couples have named me to their best wedding photographer list (omg!), and I’m beyond humbled by the folks who’ve invited me into their lives […]

The College of William & Mary boasts one of the most beautiful campuses in the world, and served as the perfect backdrop for E&J’s Wren Chapel Engagement photos. Beginning at the historic Wren Building, we made our way through the sunken gardens and down to the Crim Dell for some photographs along the bridge. Afterward, […]
