Bear’s Den Engagement | Alexandra & Michael

October 22, 2021

It was a windy morning spent with Alex and Michael, but SUCH a gorgeous one! These two met me at Bear’s Den overlook in Bluemont for a chilly engagement session this morning, and I am so excited to have met them! Bear’s Den is a gorgeous overlook that is easily accessible on foot (with sneakers). It was such a fun time jumping from rock to rock in hopes of capturing the beauty surrounding A+M. They were SUCH troopers with the wind and cold temps, and I’m so thankful for couples who brave uncomfortable conditions for their photos!

Their October 2022 wedding is going to get here before we know it, and I truly cannot wait to continue celebrating them as we get closer and closer to their wedding day!

Alex & Michael,

THANK YOU for trusting me with capturing your engagement and wedding photos! And thank you so much for braving the early, cold morning we had and doing so with smiles on your faces 🙂 It was a joy meeting you both! ENJOY your sneak peek!!

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 went above and beyond to accommodate us for a last minute change of plans due to COVID-19. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the pictures and how they turned out. We absolutely love them all. Andrea brings out the natural beauty in whatever she photographs. Thanks to Andrea we will be able to relive our wedding day over and over."

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!
