Harrisonburg, VA Engagement | Sara + Matt

April 14, 2019

Sara and Matt’s engagement session at the JMU Arboretum yesterday was EVERYTHING and more. I am just completely obsessed with the way these two just love on each other with all the giggles and smiles. It truly felt like I was just along on a date with them, and they absolutely rocked it while being in front of the camera.

These cuties are just the sweetest people to work with, oh my goodness. I had so much fun with them and am just so blessed to have couples like them in my life! Their laughter and willingness to try anything was so appreciated. I absolutely adore the way they interact with each other and probably said “you guys are the cutest!” at least 14 times (but definitely more).

They’ve taken a few ballroom dancing lessons, so obviously I had to have them act out a few of their main moves, and I was just SWOONING the entire time. Sara and Matt are just an adorable couple that encompass so much love and warmth when they’re around other people. Their smiles were contagious — I was literally grinning from ear to ear while editing their sneak peek and am definitely looking forward to capturing these cuties on their WEDDING DAY in July!


Sara and Matt,

Thank you so much for not only asking me to be your wedding photographer, but for driving to Harrisonburg just to get engagement photos done. I had such a wonderful time meeting you both and am so incredibly excited to celebrate your love in July. Enjoy a sneak peek at your engagement session, you two!! I cannot wait for you to see more ❤️

WHY we're the perfect match:


As a wedding photographer, yes, my priority, is capturing your day. But more than that, it's making sure you spend time with people - YOUR people - and that THOSE moments are captured. When it comes to your wedding day, I'm an efficient photographer WITHOUT compromising quality, and truly feel that is what most couples need during their wedding experience. I want you to be able to run (not walk) to cocktail hour, dance to the "Wobble" (if you're into that), and not have to worry about sticking to a strict timeline (because for 95% of my couples, we get photos done EARLY and you're free to party with your people right afterwards).

When you hire me as your wedding photographer, you hire a fun sense of organization with timeline prep, efficiency, and an overall sense of servitude for you and your guests on your wedding day.

You should definitely hire her now for your photography needs!"

Andrea is so professional and detail-oriented, while still being fun, friendly, and loving. She feels like she is your best friend as soon as you meet her! Throughout our wedding planning process, she sent a sweet little surprise gift box, a helpful photography planning guide, and she even made us a personalized ornament for our first Christmas! She goes above and beyond in everything she does.


"Her excitement about being our photographer was contagious."

From the first meeting, we knew Andrea was an experienced photographer who was also warm and bubbly, which is the perfect type of person to have around you on your wedding day. She was extremely helpful with answering any questions we had, and was very responsive. Andrea is incredibly organized and efficient. She captured the best moments and got all the shots we wanted without making it feel like the photography was taking over the day. Working with her was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend her!
