Tim & Melissa's Elopement | Smith Mountain Lake

Tim & Melissa's Elopement | Smith Mountain Lake

When Melissa first inquired with me about photographing her elopement at Smith Mountain Lake, I was over the moon excited! My favorite part of photographing weddings is meeting the couples and getting a front row seat to their special day. So to think I would be one of the only persons present for this front row seat was such a huge honor to me!

Josh and Gabrielle’s wedding at Glencliff Manor was a classic autumn wedding with many fall elements throughout the day. Their friends and family brought the love and support while Josh and Gabrielle shared so much joy all day long. It was wonderful!

I know I'm not supposed to have favorites, but I can't help it this time. This wedding is one of my all time favorite weddings I've ever shot and you'll soon see why.

As they sat just one seat apart on the track team bus, he charmed her with his 100-watt smile and the seed was forever planted. Weeks passed and their friendship grew. Four years later, best friends finally gave into love and planned to walk down the aisle to make it official. 

Graham & Emily | Ashland Engagement Photographer

Internet, meet Graham & Emily. Emily has been a dear friend of mine for years. We met in college our freshman year at Longwood University (did you know I went to Longwood? Oh yes. And a very influential year of my life, it was!) and have been friends since. When she got engaged this year I was SO excited for her! And of course, extremely honored when she asked me to be her photographer. It was awesome to finally meet Graham when we met up for their engagement session. They were adorably sweet together and made my job a cinch! I love engagement sessions so much because it helps show my clients that having your picture taken "isn't so bad." In fact, it's kind of fun and relaxing. Plus, you get to spend the entire session cuddling and loving on each other! Score! :) Here are a few of my favorites from their session:
