SOULFUL WEDDING & PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY


BLOG

Fueled by equal parts coffee and Jesus, I spend my days capturing the kind of images that make you stop, smile, and ask time to slow down.

Raven’s Roost Engagement | Glenn & Wesley

engagements

It was a gorgeous sunrise session this morning with Glenn & Wesley at Raven’s Roost! I had the pleasure of meeting these two just this morning and what a joy it was. Between scaling rocks (and Glenn did this in HEELS), practicing the Pinterest poses, and just getting to know these two, I’d say it […]

The Serenity Inn Wedding | Kate & Steve

weddings

Kate and Steve’s Serenity Inn wedding was just what my photographer soul needed!! These two are celebrating their one-year anniversary to what would have been a celebration similar to this one (#COVIDcouple). I am astounded at the resilience and excitement these two have held over multiple rescheduling dates, broken bones, ripped pants, and the newness […]

Bear’s Den Engagement | Alexandra & Michael

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). […]

Running Mare Wedding | Clara & Iain

  What a BEAUTIFUL day for such a beautiful couple. Clara and Iain’s Running Mare wedding was nothing short of just absolutely stunning. I felt like my emotions kept ranging from (happy) crying to laughing, because the amount of joy in their space was overwhelming in the best way!! I’ve had the joy of getting […]

Dumbarton House Wedding | Karen and Evan

weddings

I basically have limited words to describe how joyous, magical, and FUN Karen and Evan’s Dumbarton House wedding was. I had the pleasure of photographing their engagement session in Annapolis a few months ago and, even during our consultation in March, knew I was going to adore working with these two. Their Dumbarton House wedding […]

Rivercrest Farm Wedding | Annie & Ryan

Oh my goodness! There are so many joyful things I could say about Annie and Ryan and their wedding day at Rivercrest Farm.  I had the honor of capturing Annie and Ryan’s engagement session at the same venue (and if you missed that, you can check it out here!) and knew their wedding day was […]

Brix & Columns Vineyards Wedding | Esther & Allan

All I can say about Esther and Allan’s wedding day at Brix and Columns Vineyards is WOW. From start to finish, the entire day was filled with friendship, warmth, and SO MUCH COLOR. I loved how Esther and Allan combined their cultural backgrounds to celebrate the union of their families. Their families are very important […]

Bluestone Vineyard Wedding | Josie & Peter

OH MY GOODNESS – I can’t say enough about Josie and Peter’s wedding  at Bluestone Vineyard! While it is one of my favorite venues in the Valley, this couple and their friends/family made this wedding that much more special. I captured Josie and Peter’s engagement session allll the way back in April (if you missed […]

Sweeney Barn Wedding | Lizzy & Ryan

Lizzy and Ryan’s Wedding Day Part 2 came and went SO quickly!

You can click this link to view some sneaks from their April celebration. Their Sweeney Barn celebration was in […]

Downtown Harrisonburg Engagement | Megan & Alex

engagements

It truly feels like I’ve known Megan and Alex for a while (and not like I met them just last evening). During their engagement session over the weekend, we walked around the JMU Quad for a bit, which has such a special place in Megan and Alex’s hearts! After meeting at JMU their freshman year […]

WHY we're the perfect match:

WE WANT THE SAME THINGS

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.

"Andrea is a joy to be around and creates a natural, relaxed atmosphere.

Andrea is a joy to be around and creates a natural, relaxed atmosphere. Andrea captures each moment so beautifully. She was always on top of communication, and I always felt like she cared about what we wanted. The quality of pictures is amazing and I am so glad we chose Andrea as our wedding photographer! You should definitely hire her now for your photography needs!"

TAYLLOR AND CODY

"Andrea brings out the natural beauty in whatever she photographs.

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."

SARA AND JOHN

"Andrea is so professional and detail-oriented, while still being fun, friendly, and loving.

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.

LIZ & ZACK

"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!
