Ashlawn Highland Engagement | Nick & Kylie

Ashlawn Highland is by far one of my favorite places in all of Charlottesville. The treelined drive is breathtaking, the gardens quaint, the rolling hills = quintessential Virginia. Kylie & Nick drove up from Lexington on an afternoon that had started with serious rain and cleared up in time for our pictures, and let me tell you – these two are so adorable and funny! And thankfully didn’t bat an eye at my own goofy tendencies, so their session was such a joy.

  Kylie’s late mother made this quilt for her when she was in college and I loved that Kylie wanted to include it in a few photos.

I’ve been loving this trend at my last few engagement sessions where couples bring jerseys for their favorite teams! Go Caps!

Nick & Kylie, I can’t wait to get to celebrate with you at Big Spring next year! xo

The Meyer Family | Lifestyle Portrait Session

 I’ve been photographing sweet Myles he was just a few weeks old, and this past spring we celebrated his first year with a simple morning shoot at home. At home portrait sessions, or lifestyle sessions, are such a relaxed and fun way to document life and all of it’s various stages. Film development – Photovision Prints


Hannah & Michael | Woodberry, Virginia Wedding


Julia & Matt | Rapidan Virginia Wedding

Julia got ready in her parents’ home before sharing a first look with Matt on the same porch where we took some of their engagement photos. They were married in a little Episcopal church just down the road, and drank champagne in the shade of the trees by the house. They celebrated the evening with an incredible dinner from Real Food, shared a slice of the loveliest cake from Cakes by Rachel, and danced the night away to the sounds of Empty Pocket. Julia and her mother planned the sweetest backyard wedding, and it was an honor to be a part of it. Many thanks to Brittany Claud for assisting me.
