Photography is one of my main passions, and also a side business for me. I developed a serious interest in photography back in 2010, and over the past 7 years I’ve worked to improve my skills and add to my portfolio. In 2015, I started my own business and began working with wedding and portrait clients. Much like design I trace my love of photography back to storytelling as I love capturing the memories of the people I'm lucky enough to work with! Want to see more? You can find more of my photography on my website, Instagram, and Facebook page.

Kayla poses in a Johnny Was dress during a promotional shoot for The Yellow  Button Boutique and 22807 Magazine in downtown Harrisonburg.
Leah strikes a poses in a field of tall grass as the sun sets behind her. A huge part of my business is senior portraits, capturing high schoolers before they head off to college.
During one of my favorite shoots of the fall, Molly and Ian snuggle up at a local swimming hole for their three year anniversary session
Capturing the details of the day is one of my top priorities at a wedding. When the couple has invested so much to bring their vision to life I don't want to miss a single piece!
Typically I shoot bridal portraits after a bride has finished dressing, but on Lexi and Glenn's big day we saved them until sunset to get some of her on location at their vineyard wedding.
During engagement sessions I take time to get photos of the bride's new engagement ring for her gallery.
Growing my own photography business has taken a lot of work along the way and I've invested time in mentoring sessions with other photographers to enhance my work. Amanda and Robert were kind enough to model one afternoon while I did a mentoring session with a photographer down in Fredericksburg, VA.
Reception exits are often dark and outside so I've had to master using my flash to catch wedding send offs.
This chilly JMU grad session left us frozen, but golden light made the photos look like it was summer!
We took a small hike at dawn in hopes of a brillant sunrise session, but once we hit the mountain top found only fog. Despite the turn of events, we embraced the weather for Lily & Canaan's early morning session.
Black and white bridal portraits are one of my favorite things to capture on a wedding day. Jessica was a classic bride with her striking looks and birdcage veil.
Jordan wanted an out of the box location that would standout for her senior session. We ended up at a local waterfall and she jumped right in for some memorable photos.
