Megan & Seth| Sweet Briar Engagement Session

    Let me just go on record by saying that I am so glad that this couple is a couple. I am even more glad that they are getting married… IN EXACTLY ONE WEEK!  I consider myself so blessed to be given the opportunity to take my best friend’s engagement pictures. I am so happy for Megan & Seth and I cannot wait to see them get married and spend the rest of their lives together.

    Enjoy my favorites from their engagement session!_DSC0884_DSC0885-tile_DSC0890_DSC0892_DSC0894-tile_DSC0900_DSC0906_DSC0913_DSC0916_DSC0933_DSC0949_DSC0961_DSC0966_DSC0969-tile_DSC0977-tile_DSC0982_DSC0984_DSC0999_DSC1003_DSC1006_DSC1019_DSC1045_DSC1055_DSC1058_DSC1067_DSC1069-tile_DSC1038_DSC1118_DSC1124_DSC1139_DSC1141_DSC1167-tile_DSC1177_DSC1191_DSC1199_DSC1214-tile_DSC1229-tileI love you guys!

    Mr. & Mrs. Smith

    I would formally like to invite you to the most precious wedding I have ever been to. Be prepared to be overwhelmed with cuteness & perfection just bursting forth from these two. I cannot express how much it means to me that I got the opportunity to be a part of AJ & Hannah’s wedding day… it was like living a dream!

    Hannah asked me last year if I would be interested in being their wedding photographer and to be honest, I think I felt my neck to make sure I still had a pulse! You know, as a photographer, there are those couples that you see and you think, “Oh my gosh, if that perfect, adorable couple would even ask me to be their photographer, I might die.” Well I had one of those moments and it actually came true! (I didn’t die though, no worries!)

    This was honestly my most favorite wedding that I have been to so far in my life. The location for both the ceremony and the reception were absolutely wonderful and a perfectly perfect fit for AJ & Hannah. (I’m kind of biased because I will be having my wedding and reception at the same exact locations, but you seriously cannot go wrong with Brenneman Chapel & Highland Vue Farms!)

    I have so many favorites to share with all of you! Take a peek!

    Mr. & Mrs. Schmalhofer

    Meagan and I met a few years back when we were both working at our summer jobs at Camp YoliJwa, which just happens to be where she also met Seth! These two are about the cutest, sweetest couple ever!

    As I traveled up and over the mountain in Pennsylvania with a BEAUTIFUL view of all the fall colors, and I was headed towards Meagan’s family’s cabin where the ceremony would be taking place, I just knew that I would fall in love with this wedding. This October wedding just screamed “Meagan & Seth”! The way they portrayed their personalities through their wedding day was absolutely magical. I don’t think it could have been any more perfect for them!

    Enjoy my favorites from this beautiful wedding at the cabin in the woods!

    Morgan & Todd | Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens Proposal

    Over the last couple of years, I have been dedicated to following some of my favorite photographers on Facebook & their photography blogs. Some of my favorite photographers like Katelyn James & Brooke Courtney have had the opportunity to hide in bushes and wear disguises to capture photos of super nervous boyfriends who are proposing to their girlfriends! After seeing their blog posts about it, looking at their pictures, watching adorable proposal videos on YouTube (come on girls, we all do it!), and looking at precious pictures on my Pinterest feed, I have been hoping & praying that maybe one day someone would ask me to be a top secret, disguised photographer for their proposal!

    This summer, I received a message from Todd asking me if there was any way that I would be able to take a trip to Richmond to capture the moment when he would propose to Morgan! I am pretty sure that I screamed of excitement when he asked! Morgan is one of the sweetest girls I have ever met & I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to spend the first 2 years of my college education with her at Liberty! I had met Todd once or twice before, but let’s be honest… once he asked me to do this super special task, he definitely won me over! Morgan, you’ve got a keeper!

    Todd proposed at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond, Virginia & it was absolutely beautiful! He invited his family, Morgan’s family, and a few of their friends to hide and experience this monumental moment in their lives! I hid in a bush and waited for them to get into place and then I shot away!:)Enjoy the beautiful memories of their proposal below!

    P.S. Men, if you’re wondering if you should have a photographer be there for your proposal, the answer is “YES!”

    Mr & Mrs Bendgen

    I have known both Rachel & Cameron for a couple of years now. When they asked me to be the  photographer for their June wedding, I was absolutely ecstatic! Rachel & Cameron’s wedding day was incredibly beautiful and I may or may not have shed a few tears:)I am so thankful that I got to be a part of such a wonderful day, and better yet, capture these images for them to remember their special day for a lifetime. Enjoy!
