Lynchburg VA Portraits

Weekend Update || October Family Sessions & Weddings

It's finally starting to feel more like fall around here, and even though I loooooooove summer and all the fun that comes with it- the cooler temps and golden light sure are a photographers dream!  We had another busy fall weekend, with some family portraits, a gorgeous Trivium Estate Wedding! 

My busy weekend started with the gorgeous Bell Family. I've been getting photos of this adorable family since Mom was first pregnant, so it really is so much fun to see them again each year and how much they've grown! This year, both kids were talking my ear off and it was such a blast!

Saturday's Trivium Estate wedding was such a blast! I always love shooting at the Trivium- and not just because it's just down the road from our new house- but because it's gorgeous there, and the staff there is SO helpful and organized! Ryan & Andrea's wedding day was no exception and their ceremony overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains was simply stunning! 


Sunday, we met up with the Smawley Family at Sweet Briar College! We worked with Kristin as our mortgage broker when we bought our house, so it really was an honor to photograph her gorgeous family! 

October is so busy for photographers, but I secretly love it too! It's always so much fun and keeps me motivated and moving!




Charlie & Emily Engagement: Lynchburg, VA Wedding and Portrait Photographer

Ugh is anyone else just going absolutely crazy with all this rain?! I mean, don't get me wrong, there's nothing like a good, lazy day snuggling under your warm comfy blankets, drinking coffee and catching up on The Bachelor all day long!! But, let's face it... when you're an adult, it's pretty rare that you get to have days like that. And when you have a 4 year old that will only entertain herself for so long before she wants something to eat, days like that pretty much never happen! haha! 

The Lynchburg weather is always crazy this time of year, 60 degrees one day, snowing the next.  The first time we tried to get together for Charlie & Emily's engagement photos, we got snowed out. Then it snowed the beginning of this week, but everything warmed up a bit and luckily it was a beautiful day... just a little soggy & muddy out.  

These two are complete naturals in front of the camera. They are SO adorable- I would direct them into a general pose and they would snuggle up, and I wouldn't have to tell them to do anything differently, they just would! I love when couples are so happy, they radiate and can laugh with each other and you can tell by being around these two for any amount of time that they are so in love! They are getting married in March and I cannot wait!!!

Lynchburg Humane Society || Lynchburg Wedding and Portrait Photographer

Have you guys checked out the Lynchburg Humane Society yet? We seriously LOVE it there and are just so impressed with their facility and their seriously amazing staff.  We got our sweet pup from the Humane Society this past winter, (#manningthemutt), and we love visiting and loving on the sweet pets there! Me and Emmie were both SO excited when her class decided to take a field trip there! The first schedule trip got cancelled due to the snowstorm that shut schools here down for weeks.  

The staff and volunteers at the Lynchburg Humane Society are so sweet, they had special activities with the kids and they got to run around and play with the puppies! It really was so much fun! Even if you aren't looking for a new pet, they always love for people to come visit the animals- and they are of course taking donations for food, toys, and blankets for the pets!

Our Snow Weekend- A personal post || Central VA Photographer

I had some seriously excited people in my house this weekend.  Michael & Emmie have been watching & praying for snow so they were THRILLED to see a storm on the radar last week. Meanwhile, I was stressing about the wedding planned for the weekend, but that all turned out okay! ;) 

Emmie COULD NOT wait to get outside, and as soon as we bundled her up (in every single shade of hot pink that exists!! haha!) she ran outside and plopped down into the snow to make snow angels! Her and Manning chased each other around and laughed a little too hard. No, seriously, too hard- it sucks to take all those layers for a potty break! hhahahaha!

Coleton & Elizabeth's engagement session || Downtown Lynchburg, VA Engagement Photographer

I looooooooove that I have some super awesome couples that are braving the cold and getting their engagement photos done this winter!! I was so excited to have our engagement session with Coleton & Elizabeth- when I first met with them a few months ago, it totally felt like I was catching up with old friends! They are the sweetest couple, are always laughing & smiling and so down-to-earth! What could be better!!?! 

We met up in downtown Lynchburg and got some photos on the streets in Lynchburg and then headed over to Percival's Island on the Blackwater Running Trails!
