Vibrant Photographs for Passionate People

Welcome to the Blog

Audra and Justin celebrated their love with a late summer wedding at Clyde’s Willow Creek Farm. The pair started the day by getting ready at their separate homes. While I was busy photographing the details and the girls, my second shooter was photographing Justin and his brother. The couple kept their wedding party small with […]

Disclaimer: Not all weddings have a bride, and some weddings have two brides. This blog post is for brides who might be thinking about a bridal portrait session where we take additional portraits prior to the wedding. I receive so many questions asking – Do I need a bridal portrait session? The answer varies for […]

It’s official – Lucy and Ben tied the knot in a gorgeous, spring Dover Hall wedding! They, like everyone else who was planning a 2020 wedding, were impacted by Covid. Their original wedding was scheduled for September 2020, but they eventually landed on postponing until May 2021. And let me tell you – the weather […]

You aren’t seeing double – this Virginia winery engagement session features Lauren and Ben, the two UVA sweethearts who won our engagement session giveaway last year! Their first session was at Swannanoa Palace in Afton on a beautiful early summer day. They also wanted some some classic Virginia winery engagement photos at their wedding venue. […]

Below is […]

Part Two is here! Late summer and fall seasons did not look the same, although we managed to stay pretty busy. We had senior portraits, engagement sessions and plenty of weddings, both small and medium-sized. We managed to contract Covid (even though we were SO careful!!) but were able to quarantine and not infect anyone. […]

It’s time for a personal wedding planning update! We love taking and sharing others’ photos, but we’re turning the camera around and sharing our engagement photos taken by The Mallorys at Waterperry Farm.

One of the biggest questions we get is, “What does a full wedding photography gallery look like?” We’re happy to answer! Since technology has moved away from CDs, USBs and other physical form of digital file delivery, we have adapted to offer online galleries to host all of your photos. This is where your engagement […]

Okay – I know 2020 was a dud, but this wedding was nothing less than beautiful! Katelyn and Josh tied the knot during a warm summer Saturday at the Barn at Turkey Ridge. This was my first time at this venue and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. The barn itself is situated […]

This year…whew. It kicked my ass. Actually, I think it kicked everyone’s ass! Instead of doing the traditional “Best of” blog series we do every year, I wanted to take a more comprehensive, chronological look back on 2020.
