Meet Theo and his family in their Blacksburg in-home documentary session. I am totally charmed by this kid and his mop of red curls. He’s got a sweet, happy little baby brother, too.

If you loved this video and are interested in having one of your own family, contact me here. This is my favorite way to photograph families with young children. And no, you do NOT have to clean your house!

Lemonade, flags, daisies, and an old blue chevy…

Kayla and Travis did not get married on the Fourth of July, but their wedding reminded me so much of the quintessential American summer that I decided to post it now, in honor of Independence Day.

Kayla and Travis were married in their very own backyard on a quiet street in Radford, Virginia, with a small audience of family members. They kept the decor simple and bright, using clean white and light gray with pops of yellow everywhere. And the weather was PERFECT… 70s and breezy, with bright sunshine filtering in through the leaves. And because this was a smaller event, I was able to take lots more details shots and portraits than I usually can.

Congratulations, Kayla and Travis, and happy Fourth of July!

  • Shirley Mullins - These are absolute great of Kayla and Travis. She was a beautiful bride and you captured what a beautiful girl she is. Thanks for sharing them.

Rachel and Kat have the distinction of being not only beautiful, loving, and fun, but also my very first same-sex wedding clients. I’m really excited about shooting their wedding in October, because they are naturals in front of the camera. Just being together makes them smile, and that makes me smile, too.

We started their Roanoke engagement pictures at a parkway overlook, working quickly to avoid a fast-appraoching storm that never materialized. Their super sweet dog came along, too, and I have to say, she might have been the easiest dog I’ve ever worked with.

Next, we headed downtown for a change of scenery and attire.

Ever heard of Firefly Hill Vineyards? It’s a new venue in the Shawsville area, and it’s where Ashley and Al got married last weekend. AND IT HAS A FIELD. (All the photographers clap their hands!)
