Yes, I'm a dog person (cats too!) and I love my border
collies Lily and Sami, and when I'm not shooting an event, you will find
me training them on agility, manners and games with their balls and frisbee!
I've been photographing weddings since 2005, and found a
niche in outdoor / beach photography! There is something so magical about
the lighting, waves rolling in, little sand crabs scuttling into their tunnels,
and the beauty and comfort of the sand dunes. I love it when my couples
and their families experience this magic for the very first time.
Who knew Virginia really is for Lovers!
photography has more challenges than typical indoor venues. The light is
always changing, from so many directions and you need to be prepared. I
love it when I photograph an indoor venue, as I know the lighting will be a
little more controlled. As an x-Army brat and Girl Scout, I have learned
to adapt, and roll with the ever changing situations that arise with a wedding.
Being prepared and anticipating the "what if's" is a strength I am proud of.
So with backup cameras and accessories, ensures I'm armed & ready for your day!
A bonus ... You get is with my wedding planning experience, I'm the perfect one to bring you "over the
dunes" as you make your entrance and walk down the aisle......
My new found passion is photographing the
family as they prepare for mom's maternity and anticipation and adoration
of the newborn baby. The natural progression of life is amazing, from
belly to baby, I have lots of cute swaddling cloths and props! I offer
belly to newborn up to 10 days old, followed by 6 month shoot and wrapping up on
the baby's first birthday - please contact me if you are interested, I would
love to be there for your family!
I count on my team to bring it all home, and My daughter Maddie (our event manager too!) is my assistant, and many times my "second
shooter". I love that our couples can count on two seasoned photographers
to capture their day. We have truly developed perfect
mother and daughter partnership - I am so blessed!
Maddie is a key team member who
processes the wedding images and creates those beautiful wedding collages for
our couples. She has a keen eye for detail and processing your pictures -
this talent also requires much patience as we shoot anywhere from 200 to 3,000
pics per event! As our event manager, she has the knowledge, enthusiastic smile
and patience to help direct you to the best package or location. You will
love working with her, and talking with her over the phone! Maddie is not
only technology savy, but our in-house pro coordinating and working with our
extensive I-Tunes library.
At our chapel wedding
rehearsals, Maddie has mastered the art of coordinating our events!
Keeping you at ease,
using natural light when possible, extended light sources
when needed, our fun loving and
laid back nature will create portraits you'll be proud to
show off, while capturing your family's moments that will
