Can we talk about how much of a dreamy winter wonderland this session was?! And to top it off Caila and Tristan were so humbly genuine the whole time and such a joy to be around. There was even a snowball fight to conclude the session! Seriously so much fun! We are so happy to be sharing these pictures and completely stoked for their big day in June! 

Dani + Mackenzie | Married | Philadelphia, Pennsylvania | Wedding Photographer

We are so excited to share Mackenzie and Dani’s gorgeous wedding with you all today! They celebrated their special day at John James Audubon center which was surrounded by beautiful greenery and gorgeous stone buildings! It was our first Pennsylvania wedding, and we would definitely call it a very beautiful success!

Their wedding day was perfect! We did have a little surprise thunderstorm, but luckily it held off until the reception when everyone was inside. But! With a thunderstorm comes gorgeous sunsets to follow, and we have the pictures in this post to show it off!

Mackenzie and Dani share such a sweet, fun love for each other. The kind that you can’t help but smile when you see them together. We are so glad we were able to be apart of their special day! We can’t say it enough just how beautiful this day was. From the couple, to the guest and all the way to the bride’s sparkly Ked’s tennis shoes!

Mackenzie and Dani, we want to thank you both again for choosing us to photograph such a wonderful time of celebration! We wish you both a life full of blessings and laughter! Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Bauman!

Brenna's Bridals | Ashton Gardens | Houston, Texas

I LOVE bridals! This bridal session is especially close to me because the beautiful bride is my best friend! We have been dying to post these beautiful pictures and now that the wedding is over, here they are for all to see! Brenna was a stunning bride and Ashton Gardens was a dream to capture the pictures in! From the spiral staircase and natural lighting from the windows in the chapel- it was all perfect!

These pictures are definite some of my favorite that we have had the opportunity to capture! I may be a little biased since Brenna is my bestie, but still! Just have a look at this beautiful bride! And let us know your favorite!

Angel + Dylan | Married | Garrison, Texas | Texas Photographer

So confession time: its been way too long since we have posted a blog. Both of us being full time students in grad school, having jobs and running our own creative business makes for a crazy life. So prepare for gorgeous wedding pictures because they are coming! And to start off the new year, we will share the Allensworth’s beautiful day!

Five years ago, little college freshman Bre embarked on her college journey to Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. Before classes even started I had met 3 fabulous girls, one of them being Angel. It was such a fun friendship, consisting of late night movie nights, jamming to T-Swift in her car, baking and other freshman year memories! About a month into the semester Dylan was introduced to the group. From the beginning, I could tell just how much he cared about Angel. I then transferred to Liberty and the next three years absolutely flew by!

It was so wonderful getting to catch up and reconnect with Angel and Dylan throughout the whole planning process. They both have such a strong devotion not just to each other but to God and the people around them. It was such an honor to be a part of their very special day and getting to be there to celebrate your first step together as husband and wife! Dale and I wish you nothing but bliss and many blessings!

Katie + Warren | Married | Sorella Farms | Evington, VA

Katie and Warren's Virginia wedding at Sorella Farms turned a warm August afternoon into an overwhelmingly beautiful occasion. From the floral arrangements to the vintage plates on the head table, it was all so gorgeous. Katie's dress had a very unique vintage touch that she wore beautifully.  

Their love for one another is so apparent and honestly it was so sweet to see them interact with one another. Both Dale and I had a blast being apart of their special day! When it came time for the first dance it was all I could do not to shed a few tears, and I'm usually not emotional at all. Their friends and family were so much fun, especially when it came to the dance floor. There were guys flipping and doing the worm! After the I Do's, it was a party for sure!

Katie and Warren are both so kind hearted people and were an absolute joyful couple to work with. To see how much they love each other and Christ is just such a beautiful sight. Congratulations Katie and Warren! Dale and I wish you both nothing but the best!

Kara + Ryan | Engaged | Peaks of Otter, Virginia

Last week we drove out to Peak of Otter Lodge in the Blue Ridge Mountains and shot a beautiful engagement session with this wonderful couple. Kara and Ryan were full of smiles, but I mean how could you not be when the weather is perfect and there is mountain range for your background. Dale and I are so excited to share these pictures with you all! Looking forward to there fall wedding this November! 

Fabine + Anthony | Married | Washington, DC | DC Photographer

The first time we met with Fabine she was fully of joy and laughter, even with Anthony being  away at training leaving the wedding date to be determined, she had nothing but joy. 

When she emailed us telling us know that the wedding would be in DC at a war memorial we were so stoked! From the single violinist to the small gathering of loved ones, Fabine and Anthony's day radiated with simplicity and intimacy. They are a beautiful couple and we are so excited to share these pictures with you all! Congratulations Fabine and Anthony!

Brenna + Marcus | Engaged | Houston, TX | Houston Wedding Photographer

While we were down in Houston we got to take engagement pictures of this adorable couple! I (Bre) have known Brenna since 3rd grade and I am so incredibly happy that my best friend has found this incredible man to take care of her. The whole session was full of laughter and weird looks, mainly given by Brenna, but it was so great to photograph the happiness that these two have together. We are so excited to photograph this couple's big day this coming March! Congratulations on the engagement Brenna and Marcus!

Ahoy! An Island Elopement | Vera + Austin | St. Thomas, USVI | St. Thomas Wedding Photographer

While visiting Dale's parents in St. Thomas, we had the incredible opportunity to be apart of Vera and Austin's uniquely beautiful elopement on the beach of the St. Thomas Marriot. Rather than just going the traditional floral tropical island look, the fun couple decided to do a pirate theme! I can honestly say I have never shot a wedding where the officiant was dressed like a pirate, so it was definitely a fun experience.  Here are just some of our favorite images from their day!

Geode Wedding Styled Shoot | Irvington Spring Farms | Virginia Wedding Photographer

Dale and I really enjoyed connecting with the other photographers that were there and getting a chance to hear other's tips and tricks, as well as sharing some of ours. Below are some of our favorites that we took at the shoot and we are loving how they turned out!

Ginny + Joey | Lynchburg, VA | Lynchburg Wedding Photographer

If there is anything you need to know about Ginny and Joey, it is that they are such a fun and  adventurous couple. They compete in triathlons around the world! They got married just this past summer and I was so lucky to be able to have them do a session with me. I had a blast working with with them and we wish you two the best! Congrats to Ginny and Joey!

Brittany + Russell | Sapphire Beach | St. Thomas Lifestyle Photographer

Whats a better way to start off a new year than to have an amazing opportunity to shoot a surprise engagement! What Brittany expected to be a photoshoot turned out to be Russel proposing.

Thank you so much for having us be apart of this special moment. Congratulations Brittany and Russel on this exciting time in your lives!

Brenna + Marcus | Houston Lifestyle Photographer

For Thanksgiving Bre and I took our first road trip together down to Texas to spend the holiday week with her family. During our visit we were able to spend time with Bre’s childhood friend Brenna and her boyfriend, Marcus. As a photographer it’s a requirement to squeeze in a photo session on any trip, so here are some photos we took of Brenna and Marcus in a park in the suburbs of Houston, TX. Brenna and Marcus were such a fun couple to work with! We are blessed to have a friendship like theirs! Happy Monday all!

Here are some  of my favorite pictures from their session.
