Welcome TO THE

As Will and I got ready for Lewis and Jen’s wedding, we loaded up the car with our clear umbrellas, knowing that the forecast said 100% of rain. Scattered showers throughout the day. Knowing that the Mia Bella Originals Design team had worked effortlessly to transform Jen’s family home into a gorgeous venue for the […]

Last year at one of our weddings I snapped a picture of a super cute couple on the dance floor without knowing who they were… now they are one of our couples and we are SO excited!! We met Tori + Seth at Tori’s Mawmaw and Pawpaw’s farm in Tazewell, Virginia. As we were driving […]

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 […]

When I was teaching at Concord, I had a few “Zumba girls” that I looked forward to seeing. Skyla + her friends always came with contagious smiles and always made classes more fun. I knew if she had that much contagious joy working out, her engagement session would be a blast! Codie and Skyla were […]

A few weeks ago, I held a contest on my Facebook page. In order to win an engagement photography session, the couple had to post a photo and have their friends like the photo. Frankie and Tyler got almost 400 votes for their photo! I couldn’t believe how many friends showed their love to help […]

Will and I spent Saturday celebrating with the sweetest friends. We have known Madie + Samuel for years, and their day was just filled with so much love! While we LOVE outdoor ceremonies, there is something so special about photographing church weddings. No matter where the ceremony is, we just love seeing ceremonies that are […]

Even though we live just a few minutes from Glenwood Park, I had never been to this beautiful gazebo spot! When Mary suggested we meet there, of course I agreed, but then shortly after realized I had no idea where it was… Oops! But I’m so glad she suggested meeting there, because it is definitely […]

Oh my goodness, if you need something to make you smile, this is it! I debated whether I would share these on the blog or not, because newborn sessions are not something I plan to do often… but these are just too precious not to share. Luke and Lauren, you two have the most beautiful […]

One of the very cool but also very nerve-racking aspects of being a wedding photographer is building relationships with people from all different circles of life. This is one of my favorite parts, but it can be difficult as well because when a future bride with little mutual friends sends an inquiry, it is so […]

Aleksus Mays is such a beautiful dancer! When she’s not spending her time at the studio, she is also pursuing cheerleading! It is easy to see that she is very hardworking, and is going to do great things. In addition to her training at Beckley Dance Theater, she travelled to the Cary Ballet Conservatory, WVU […]
