An Elegant Wintry Wedding | Styled Shoot at The Blackburn Inn

March 12, 2019

This past Sunday, one of my goals for 2019 came TRUE! Myself, along with Sierra McCray and her intern Allison, successfully planned and executed a styled shoot at the Blackburn Inn in Staunton, VA. It was such a fun planning process to be able to put together such a large project, but I couldn’t be happier with the results! I am oh-so-blessed to have photographer friends that share passionate visions of how to get out of the slow-season slump and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

A huge thanks to Sierra and Allison for being the backbone of this project — it’s so important to get together with a group of ladies that understand your vision and will do anything to make it happen. They spent countless hours communicating with vendors, emailing each other to make sure all details were in place, and just being darn awesome when it came to shooting during day-of coordination.

I’m so excited to share some sneak peeks from this special day — keep scrolling for some sparkly images!

WHY we're the perfect match


Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.
