Alyssa and Brian are genuinely two of the sweetest individuals I’ve had the opportunity of photographing. They are down to earth, real, and low key – just my kind of couple. They decided to hold their wedding at The Homestead Manor in April for a beautiful, spring time, elegant feel. They invited only their closest friends and family, and boy did they celebrate. I was honored to be a part of the celebration with them beside those closest to them.

First looks are always one of my favorite things about a wedding day. That moment when a groom sees his bride for the first time on their big day is truly magical. Every once in a while there are couples that kinda shy away not knowing how to handle the moment, sometimes there are couples that flow with all the emotion you can think of – however a first look looks for each couple, its always so sweet to see the smile on their faces as they approach their big day together.

Blue Ridge Blooms did a FANTASTIC job with flowers. I could not get over these beautiful flower arrangements! I also had the chance to talk to the owner of Blue Ridge blooms, and she’s an absolute sweetheart – definitely worth looking into if you’re looking for a florist ;).

Their band, Oh No Stereo was KILLER! They got everyone out on the dance floor – I even found myself wiggling my hips a little as I snapped shots of everyone enjoying themselves!

This wedding was truly so beautiful from start to finish. Thank you, Alyssa & Brian, for letting me be a part of such a gorgeous event & congrats on your new marriage!


I believe photography is much more than creating beautiful images – it’s about the connection that you share as a couple and the human connection that we also share that will aid in capturing images that are representative of you and your unique love.

My goal is always to show a unique perspective on what makes this time in your life so beautiful. Lets learn more about each other and share in each other’s lives. Lets laugh with the good and capture the hard times for what they are. Lets set our sight on the beauty of what is happening in the present, so years down the road you can relive the joy and love of this season through images that represent you well.
