Landscape Photography – Sunrise at the Nags Head Fishing Pier


My family and I took a quick get-away down to Nags Head, NC this summer for some relaxing time at the beach. While out exercising on the beach one early morning, I saw the sun come up and it was glorious. I made note of the time and returned to the same spot the next morning with camera in hand.

Wedding Photography – Bobby and Sara in Stephens City, VA


Location and Date: Ceremony – Macedonia United Methodist Church | Reception – Bowling Green Country Club | June 2015

The Details: Bobby and Sara LOVE the Boston Celtics (as evident in their engagement session). So naturally their wedding was full of tints and hues of Celtic green wherever you looked…including shamrock glow sticks once the sun had set on the dance floor. They are also the first couple to take a ride from their ceremony site to the reception venue by way of trolley! It was my pleasure to spend the day with this fun couple and wedding party.

Wedding Photography – Joel and Sarah at Bright Box Theatre


Location and Date: Ceremony – Museum of the Shenandoah Valley | Reception – Bright Box Theater

The Details: Sarah is a long-time co-worker of mine so I was thrilled when she asked me to photograph her and Joel’s wedding in downtown Winchester (see their engagement session we also did in Winchester). The ceremony they had at the “you-can’t-go-wrong-no-matter-where-you-take-a-photo” venue of the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley. Then it was over to the Bright Box Theater located on the historic walking mall of Winchester, VA for some good food, lively dancing and a fun night had by all!

“We are so very thrilled with how our pictures turned out! They are all all amazing. Thank you for all of your work on these, we are beyond happy with them.” – Joel and Sarah

Wedding Photography – James and Lisa in Chantilly, Virginia


Location and Date: Ceremony – St. Timothy Catholic Church, Chantilly, VA | Reception – Westfields Marriott, Chantilly, VA

The Details: I have done plenty of weddings featuring men in uniform, but this was my first featuring a groom and his groomsmen in kilts! Mix that in with a great easy-going beautiful bride and an awesome wedding party and it made my day’s worth of work easy. From the stunning stained glass window backdrops of St. Timothy’s to the Batman and Wonder Woman cake topper, along with great family, friends and a talented DJ dynamic duo…this wedding was unforgettable!

Landscape Photography – Hollow Brook Waterfall on the Appalachian Trail

Wedding Photography – Steven and Denise in Toms Brook, VA


Location and Date: Ceremony – Saint Peter Lutheran Church | Reception – Piccadilly Public House & Restaurant | April 2015

The Details: Military weddings are some of my favorite to photograph. Why? The dignified uniforms, spending some time with people who served our country and how everything is on time and where it needs to be to name a few reasons.
