Winchester VA Engagement Photographer | Rebekah & Josh

Winchester VA Engagement Photographer | Rebekah & Josh

Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of photographing a very good friend of mine. We met about eighteen years ago. We shared snacks during church and colored together. We shared music and worked on projects together. We talked about boys, discussed our future; including our dreams to one day marry. Eighteen years later and here she is, living the dream. She has found her soul mate and true love and I'm so happy for her. I am so honored to be able to capture their love during their engagement, then later on their wedding day. You never realize how fast time has gone by until you reflect the dreams that you had as a child and compare them to your life now. And being able to capture those moments, well that's just the icing on the cake. <3

Congratulations to my dear friend, Rebekah, and her husband-to-be, Josh! Enjoy your journey together and keep living the dream!

Come one, come all! This is the photoshoot that I have been talking about for over a month now. It was a lot of work, a lot of planning, and a lot of excitement. As some of you may know, fashion is my primary love when it comes to photography. There's so many creative ways that you can show off hair, makeup, and clothes. It never ceases to blow my mind. So, when I got the message offering me the chance to photograph Alice Ness' idea, I believe time stood still for a moment. I would do it again in a heartbeat. We worked in a minimal space, but accomplished so much. Alice did such a beautiful job on these girls. I highly recommend you visit her website and glance through her portfolio and call her asap. She is a true visionary and wonderful to work with. We collaborated and I present you with the results. Each model had their own story and played their own part. Our collaboration created the story of a lifetime. That's what the circus is all about, right? ;)

\\ Special Thanks // 

I know this is very cheesy and cliche, but it's necessary. There's a couple of people that I would like to thank for helping me with this photoshoot. First and foremost, I want to thank my dear friend, Laiken Summerson (whom you've seen in the "Flora|Fauna" photoshoot). She has helped spread the word about my work and was the person who help set up this photoshoot and make it happen. A million, million times, thank you Laiken. :)

I want to thank my professor and mentor at Shepherd University, Rick Bruner, for allowing me to borrow and obscene amount of lighting equipment and truck it back and forth from WV to VA to MD and then back to VA to WV. Thank you for giving a helping hand yet again, even after I've graduated. It means a lot to me.

And a very special thank you to my boyfriend, Matt, for supporting me through this entire process and for supporting me throughout my entire photography career and for the many years to follow. You've helped my tremendously during this shoot and many in the past, but you've also encouraged me through and through. Thank you. :)

Thank you everyone for your support! I'm very proud of this photoshoot and I hope to do many more in the future. <3

Flora | Fauna & Update!

Hello everyone! It's been a while since I've done a blog post, but i'm finally back in the groove of things. New projects are arising and many other new things. I'm collaborating with a graphic designer and I am rebranding myself! This means, new website, new logo, new business cards, and new work! I'm very excited. This process will take some time, however. So, I will not be posting my entire series until my new website is launched. So, as you can see, my website is a little scarce right now and you can't see most of my work. i have one gallery open, my blog, prices, and contact section in the meantime. If you'd like to keep posted on how everything is going, I will still be using my blog and will post "sneak peeks" via Facebook {link can be found at the bottom of the page}.

Flora | Fauna

My most recent series is "Flora | Fauna" with the ever-so-beautiful, Laiken, and I had the beautiful makeup/styling down by my newly official stylist, Valerie. Thank you both for your beautiful work and all of your help! :) Here's a little behind the scenes footage. <3
