Jordan + Nathan | West Virginia Farm Wedding

We spent the day on Saturday with Jordan and Nathan photographing another beautiful West Virginia wedding at one of our favorite local venues, The Barn on Unity Farm! Jordan was one of the most laid-back brides I’ve ever met. She was so calm and organized (definitely could tell she’s a teacher!!) and she just seemed […]

Tara + Chris Dillon | West Virginia Elopement

It doesn’t seem like very long ago that Tara was sitting in my classroom telling all about this guy she was in love with and how they were just going to elope. After telling her about all of these beautiful elopements I’d seen, she started looking on Pinterest and a few months later she convinced […]

But What If You Get Attached?

We have had the cutest Little Man in our home for almost a month now. We picked him up from the hospital, so clueless and afraid… I was embarrassed to hold him with the nurse watching, afraid that she would see that because I wasn’t his mother and in fact had never been a mother […]
