love birds!

I am working with Peter & Cheryl to plan their wedding this spring just outside of Charlottesville. They met up with Sarah Cramer to take their engagement pictures last weekend… How sweet are they?

Engagement pictures are definitely a fun trend. Not only do you get some great shots of you and your sweetie — you get comfortable in front of the camera so it’s not such a worry on your wedding day! Sarah is the queen of e-sessions… click below to check out her blog. It’s full of inspiring pictures of life & love.

Lauren & Sam

What a spectacular wedding to be a part of…

I’ve known Lauren since we were in middle school — and have loved being a part of her life ever since. Helping Lauren & Sam plan their big day was an such an honor…

Both Lauren & Sam are from Charlottesville and wanted to incorporate their Virginia roots & their mutual love of nature in their wedding.

We planned everything with the environment in mind… Everything was local, from the food to the flowers to the boot kickin’ bluegrass tunes and Starr Hill brews. They even had their wedding bands made locally  from repurposed metals — melted down and re-crafted custom for the newlyweds. When it came time to decide on favors.. they chose apple cider donuts — as a nod to Lauren’s mom, who is known for her homemade donuts at family celebrations.

Congratulations Lauren & Sam!!
