Logan & John | Married

"Family is very important to both bride and groom" was one of the responses Logan gave in her final wedding form.  From the encouragement and support I witnessed throughout the day I'd say that Logan & John are just as important to their family as their family is to them ;)  The ceremony was filled with funny stories, smiles, tears, and a beautiful prayers.  The reception overflowed with chatter and laughter.  Logan & John made special effort to visit guests in all three dining areas.  Signature drinks, natural greenery with gorgeous florals, classic navy suits, one of my favorite wedding dresses of all time, and even a visit from their pup Daisy!!  Everywhere I turned I could see that this couple was loved and loved in return.  It was a pleasure to spend a summer evening with this them and I'm honored they chose me to capture their day ;)

Elizabeth & Drew | Married

In the days leading up to their wedding day it rained, and rained, and rained, and rained.  That day the rain stopped. The fog took it's time lifting from the mountains and the sun didn't pop out until the reception, but the rain stopped for long enough for Elizabeth and Drew to be married!  No matter that it started again during the reception, or that the dance floor was a mud pit, or that everyone took turns leaving the tent under cover of umbrellas!!  No matter because they were married and now have a perfect story to tell!!  I love this couple, I love their families, I love that I've photographed both of Drew's siblings weddings.  I just love their love ;)

Melissa & Eric | Married

All weddings are special, but my heart especially loves the ones that are focused on the people rather than the things.  When the couple wants to make sure their day honors God, makes memories, and touches the guests.  That was one thing that Melissa & Eric made very clear to me the first time we met, and I pretty sure they achieved their goal.  I don't think there was a guest Melissa didn't talk to, Eric made sure family and friends were comfortable, and the dance floor was filled with laughter and smiles all night long!

Grace | Senior 2018

My last senior session of the year was for the daughter of a dear friend and could not have been a more perfect way to finish off my sessions for 2017!!  Grace is super talented, brilliant, hard working and beautiful ;)  She'd love to write and produce films one day and her passion for the unique and vintage would probably be great inspiration.  Downtown Roanoke has just the vibe she was going for and Mill Mountain Coffee provided the perfect final touch.
