This was my last wedding of the year! It’s a little bittersweet because on the one hand, sleeeeeeeeep. ;) But on the other hand, photographing weddings brings me such joy and I already miss it!! I am very excited to spend this winter working on the back end of my business, and doing all the things I haven’t had time to do during the busy wedding season!

Joshua & Taylor met in high school, and fell in love the summer before their senior year. They both had interest in serving our nation as officers, and after high school they attended separate academies – Josh to West Point and Taylor to the Naval academy. Even with quite the rival between their two schools (Romeo and Juliet anyone?? :), they still managed to keep in touch.

By seeking the Lord’s counsel and trusting in where He would lead them, they eventually began officially dating. Josh proposed on Thanksgiving Day, and they were married the next year on Black Friday! Taylor said it so well – “We still don’t know exactly what the future holds, but together and with God, it will be an amazing adventure!”

Josh & Taylor, I am so excited to follow along on your exciting adventure, and see where the Lord takes you both! Thank you so much for giving me the honor of photographing your wedding.

Sunday afternoon, Jenny & Thomas and I went to our favorite Christmas tree farm to take a few pictures for their Christmas card! They turned out SO cute, even though it was about 30 degrees and snowing!

I always love taking pictures of them, because just look at them!! They are two of the most stylish and cool people I know.

Kate, do you see what happens when you still live in Virginia? Your sister will give you free Christmas card photos ;) All the more reason to move back from Florida!!

Despite the cloudy weather and the threat of rain, Nathan & Nicole wanted to go ahead with their engagement session! And I’m so glad they did! Even in the freezing cold, they rocked it out and we got some beautiful portraits!

Cloudy skies is really just such a different look from my usual sunny days, but I think it’s so beautiful in its own way! I love how it makes all the other colors more vibrant, and it just seems so cozy.

Nathan & Nicole, it was a pleasure meeting you (and your dogs!!)! Thank you for asking me to photograph your engagement session! :)

Yes, another proposal is on the blog! These make my heart so happy <3

For Ahmad & Lauren’s proposal, I was actually hiding in the bushes. I had several people walk past and when they saw me they’d jump a little bit… haha! Sorry people, didn’t mean to scare you!

The Barboursville Ruins was such a fun and unique setting for a proposal! I’m so glad Ahmad contacted me to capture this very special moment for them!
