Matt + Becky | Lynchburg Portrait Photographer

Matt works with my husband, Chris, and Becky shares a love of photography with me. She has assisted me before and we have had a couple of mentoring sessions. We talked about doing a “just because” session for a while. Come on, you can never have too many pictures right? I definitely think not! :) This session proves that you don’t have to have a “reason” to take some fun portraits of the two of you. Everyday is a good reason to! :) We shot the first few at this awesome bridge off of 29S. I have always thought it was a cool spot, and we finally got to use it! Matt and Becky have been married for almost 4 years, but they seriously act like they just got married yesterday! Matt can make Becky laugh with just a word; they are so cute together! Thanks guys for letting me hang out with you both and capture some fun images! You guys are amazing! ;)Work it, Becky!Love how he is looking at her in this one!The lighting was sooo perfect!Love this!!!Matt really wanted to use his truck as a prop. Love all of these!This one is too cute guys! You all are so photogenic!Love the shoes!!! :)

Engaged: Dave + Katrina

Dave and Katrina got engaged at the Peaks of Otter, and so they decided that they wanted to have their session there! The Peaks of Otter is about 45 minutes away, so in order to get the good morning light, we met at 7:30 am. On a Saturday. We discovered that none of us are morning people, so the whole ride there was pretty silent! Thanks guys for willing to get up EARLY and for hiking all up and down the mountain and climbing all over the rocks! You guys are troopers! I am so excited for April 2013!!!

Engaged: Jake + Lauren | Roanoke Wedding Photographer


Lauren and Jake are truly some of the sweetest people I have ever met! From our first emails back and forth, I knew that Lauren and I would hit it off! I told her that I use exclamation points at the end of each sentence (its true, a period at the end of a sentence makes me feel like I am angry!) and she assured me that we would work well together! :) I love people who are excited about their wedding day and excited about their images! Jake and Lauren are no exception! They are so excited to be married to each other! I absolutely cannot wait to be a part of their day in September!! :)
