Edgy Grecian Inspired Shoot | Sky Meadows State Park

I am so excited to share the second part of this stunning Sky Meadows styled shoot today! This look was a complete departure from the more vintage, rustic style from part one, with a more wild, edgy, Goddess infused look. A grecian inspired J Crew dress, leather jacket, and studded boots gave a soft yet tough vibe, and Christina totally rocked it. Tons of thanks again to Megan of Reverie and Ramble for putting my visions into action in such a stunning way.

If anyone can be called a modern day Goddess it is this lady.  Thanks for totally killing it, Christina!

Mountain Vintage Inspired Shoot | Sky Meadows State Park

This past weekend I had the opportunity to photograph not one but two gorgeous styled shoots at the breath taking Sky Meadows State Park in Delaplane, VA. Megan from Reverie and Ramble did an amazing job pulling together all of the little details and creating something both ethereal and edgy; her organization and ability to put vision to action was the perfect balance to my creative-go-with-it side.
The dress was the real inspiration for this portion of the shoot.  It is a vintage heirloom dress from the early/mid 80’s with the most gorgeous lace detailing and delicate neckline.  Inspired by the Virginia foothills we paired it with bold turquoise accents and an undone bouquet to fully capture that mountain bride vibe.

A ton of gratitude to Christina for letting us play life size Barbie with her (and for being the most stunning model I could have asked for!) and again to Megan for pulling this all together!  And check back in for part two of this shoot-envision golden wintered-over fields, leather, and studs :)

Venke & Heath | Chincoteague Engagement

The strong ocean breeze and this endearing couple made for one of my favorite engagement sessions to date. The skies were dark and moody and I’m sure Venke and Heath were doing everything possible to keep their teeth from chattering, but you could never tell. Instead they bundled up, bundled in, and went with the flow. Definitely my kind of people! Windswept and in love, with the ocean roaring in the background and a cozy blanket. These two are so real and open and I can’t wait to be there next July to capture it all!

Morgan & Joe | Alexandria Engagement

I had the best time exploring Jones Point Park with Morgan and Joe (and their sweet pup!) this past weekend.  I’ve known Morgan since college and her sweet, effervescent personality is the type that makes you feel like you’ve been best friends your whole lives within minutes of meeting her.  I’m so glad she has found her match in Joe, who’s personality seems to be the exact perfect counterpart to her own. I can’t wait to celebrate these two kind-hearted souls when they marry next spring!

Emily & Ryan | Assateague Wedding

Photographing Emily and Ryan’s waterfront wedding this Saturday was an absolute pleasure.
Despite some last minute hiccups, Emily was calm and sweet all day, simply excited to be marrying the love of her life. And everything came off perfectly. The ceremony was performed by her father and stepmother and was full of beautiful words and laughs, and they danced the rest of the night away with their energetic group of family and friends overlooking a stunning sunset at the Ropewalk. Here are a few favorites of Emily and Ryan and their perfect day.
