Maddie and Jackson had a gorgeous fall wedding at King Family Vineyards. This one was extra special to Anthony and I since we are lucky enough to call these two friends! Fun story: I did a mini session of Maddie and Jackson with their dog, Argo, a couple years back. I was convinced that Jackson was […]

Audra and I met during our time at JMU (go Dukes!). I was in the beginning stages of my photography career and Audra needed a headshot for her modeling and acting career. Since I was an eager newbie, I said yes, of course. We went our separate ways after graduation, but never lost touch! Audra […]

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 […]

Big Meadows State Park off Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah Valley is the PERFECT spot for a portrait session in the mountains! We met up with Lindsay & David to take some fall maternity photos in the Virginia mountains earlier this month.
