This past fall I had the pleasure to second shoot this beautiful wedding at the Red Fox Inn in Middleburg with the talented, Candice Adelle Photography. It’s alway so much fun to work with her and I love serving my second shooter’s clients as if they were my own.

Jill and Brandon had a beautiful, intimate day with just their closest family and friends. I love how they didn’t stress over having a huge wedding, and they seemed so calm and collected the whole day. It was perfect for them and exactly how they envisioned their day to be.

Here are some of my favorites from the day…

Leslie and Steve won a pop up wedding in D.C this past Winter and decided a small, intimate ceremony with just close family and friends was a perfect way to celebrate! They have such a beautiful love story as they fell for each other years before, but it just wasn’t the right timing. Years later they found each other again and are expecting a little girl together any day now, if she is not already here!

I loved capturing some wedding day portraits for them on one of the coldest, snowiest days we had this year, which was perfect since we had the whole museum to ourselves! I loved walking around and getting to know them, their story and their plans for the future in their new home in Charlottesville.

Wishing you two and amazing life together! XO.

Whenever my mind wanders to where I eventually want to live, it always involves Coastal Living. I always feel the most at peace by the ocean, feeling the sunshine on me, so once in awhile I will get a random thought to just jump in my car and take a quick trip to the beach. This trip was a quick 24 hours to Duck, NC. I had only been to Nags Head and Hatteras, so I thought why not visit Duck and Corrolla? I found a great deal to the Sanderling Resort, in high Season it’s easily $400 a night! It was a great little getaway for my daughter and I. We loved our room and relaxing at the hotel! The amenities are great.. we loved the complimentary smores kit and sitting outside by the fire at night, chatting with the new people we had just met. So relaxing! We enjoyed a few hours the first day on the beach and by the pool and did a little shopping in the evening. The next day I wanted to see the lighthouse and Whalehead Museum in Corrolla. Worth the short drive to see the beautiful views! I wished we could have stayed longer and seen the wild horses on the beach, but it was definately what I needed even if it was quick! One of these days when the kids are all gone, we plan on making our dream of Coastal Living a reality.

I loved meeting this sweet family this past Spring for some first birthday/ Family photos! James was adorable, although not too sure about digging into his cake! He hasn’t gotten the taste for sugar just quite yet! 🙂 He will soon learn to love it, I’m sure!

We met out at Claude Moore Heritage Farm. I had never been before, and loved the rustic feel. Mom did a great job styling the session with his favorite tent, books, chair and stuffed toys.

I love when sessions are this easy! Hope to see this sweet family again in the future! XO.

Jeannie and Jimmie began their relationship as friends their freshman year of college. Jeannie said it wasn’t until she graduated that she recognized Jimmie’s gentle heart.  She fell in love with his heart and his service to others. She loves how everything he does in life is purposeful, genuine and thoughtful. She said even though it took her four years to see it and really let him into her heart, she is so glad she did! Jeannie says Jimmie makes her a better person every day.

My favorite part of their wedding was their first look and ceremony. Jeannie was overwhelmed from the moment she set eyes on Jimmie. It was so sweet. Their ceremony was full of tears and stories of love and faith. A faith that clearly makes them stronger together. They had friends sing and I loved the words to their song, I was tearing up…

” Love came down and rescued me, love came down and set me free, 

Jesus, I am yours, I am forever yours.

Mountains high or valleys low, I sing out and remind my soul, I am yours, I am forever yours”. – Kari Jobe

Such a testament to their love and faith in each other and the Lord.

Oh and these two really know how to kill it on the dance floor, what a party the night was! 🙂

I am So happy for you both and wish you many years of fun memories together! Enjoy your honeymoon in Cancun. XO.

                      Jeannie’s Something borrowed was her mom’s wedding ring which she wore for the ceremony. So Special.

Thank you to all the vendors who made the day possible.
