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.

The Granary Wedding | Nadia & William

weddings

  Nadia and William’s wedding day at The Granary is the most spectacular way to end my busy 2021 wedding season. It combined the best winter/fall weather with a love of family and encapsulated all of that into their perfect day! They held the most love for each other and that was very clear upon […]

Lake Shenandoah Engagement Session | Miranda & Nick

engagements

Meeting Miranda & Nick for their Saturday morning engagement session at Lake Shenandoah was a DREAM. Although it was just a tad chilly at 15 degrees outside, Miranda and Nick were not phased by the cold weather (clearly, by looking at the photos below!!) I loved hearing all about their journey together, how Nick proposed, and […]

Broadway, VA Wedding | Hannah & Ben

weddings

With a bridal entrance made for the movies (including smoke bombs and a motorcycle), a ceremony that filled everyone with emotion, and the funniest family formals I’ve ever gotten to witness, Hannah and Ben’s wedding was one for the books. Their Broadway. VA ceremony had the sweetest details mixed with the most genuine-hearts for the […]

Bluestone Vineyard Wedding | Irene & Michael

Irene and Michael’s wedding at Bluestone Vineyard made for the sweetest afternoon! After an unexpected change in plans (and 2 weeks to plan this ceremony), Irene and Michael GOT MARRIED yesterday in front of their immediate family and a few special friends (AFTER 12 AMAZING YEARS TOGETHER) 🙂 I always love photographing at Bluestone because […]

Downtown Harrisonburg Engagement | Colleen & TJ

engagements

Tonight was a GORGEOUS night for an engagement session with Colleen and TJ! They are truly the funniest couple and were so comfortable in front of the camera (despite how many times they told me they rarely get photos taken 😉 ) One of my favorite things about photographing sessions in Downtown Harrisonburg is that […]

Harrisonburg, VA Wedding | Elizabeth & Zack

weddings

Elizabeth and Zach’s wedding day was the most joyful day! I have never been around a more joyous and caring group than this one. Their family and friends made me feelextremelyy welcome right from the start. Liz and Zack’s bridal party was just hilariously amazing to work with. I always love when bridal parties are […]

On Sunny Slope Farm Wedding | Miranda & Ben

weddings

I can’t believe Miranda and Ben’s wedding day has come and gone! It doesn’t feel like all that long ago that we were walked around JMU taking engagement photos– the place where they both went to college AND where Ben proposed — all the heart eyes for these two, honestly. If you missed their JMU […]

The Barn at Walnut Grove Wedding | Kasey & Jonathan

weddings

Kasey and Jonathan’s wedding day at The Barn at Walnut Grove was the PERFECT day! The weather held up and wasn’t too humid (and for a Virginia summer that’s always good) and the entire day was just a blast. I love that these two are unapologetically themselves. They had the cutest video-game themed koozies and […]

Harrisonburg, VA Engagement | Sara + Matt

engagements

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 […]

Camp Friendship Wedding | Jen & Matt

weddings

Jen and Matt’s Camp Friendship Wedding was a beautiful beginning to a busy Fall season! As the two celebrated with a lakeside/pond/beach wedding, they radiated love and happiness the entire day. From the moment I met them, their laughs and jokes made the day begin with ease. When talking to these two back in March, […]

WHY we're the perfect match

WE ARE SOULMATES

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. 

SARA & ANDREW

"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!
