Autumn Trivium Estate Wedding || Bradford & Lauren

This Trivium Estate wedding was seriously perfect! I love Fall weddings- the light, the weather- it's all We left the night saying to each other how nothing seemed to go wrong the entire day! But that's not surprising to me considering all the amazing vendors set into place with the all-inclusive package that Lauren & Bradford booked with The Trivium Estate! 

The morning started with Lauren & her best friends in the bridal suite getting ready together and laughing together! And their ceremony was so beautiful! They chose to get married down at the gazebo overlooking the pond and the trees starting to turn! So gorgeous!! During their ceremony, they chose to plant a tree together- each providing dirt from their childhood homes. How precious is this?! I've never seen this as part of the ceremony, but I loved it! 

These two are both pharmacists and their chemistry was mentioned in their ceremony and the maid of honor reception speeches & you can see it when you watch them together! Smiling and Laughing all day! The best!! Their reception was a blast! The band did such an excellent job getting everyone up and on the dance floor the entire night!! A good band is so much fun at a wedding!

Emerson's 5th Birthday || Lynchburg and Charlottesville Photographer

Excuse me while I'm wiping away some tears and feeling super sentimental, as we celebrated Emerson's FIFTH birthday last month! It's been a few weeks now, and I'm still emotional thinking about how much she's grown up!  I had all intention to share this post on her actual birthday, but it's the tail end of busy season, so all personal things get pushed aside! ;) 

Em was so super excited for her birthday this year, and has been counting down the days for over a month.  She's all about cartwheels, so it only seemed natural that she chose to have a gymnastics birthday party! It was so much fun seeing her there with her friends and loving each moment of attention.  

 

And, I can't have a birthday post without sharing some of the sweetest photos from over the last five years! *Most of these are iPhone photos*

Albuquerque, New Mexico Family and Lifestyle Photographer || Breighton's Newborn Session

Writing this, sharing these images is a complete honor and I still can't believe everything worked out for me to make it to Albuquerque to visit my Aunt & cousin Shelby just a few short days after sweet Breighton was born! I haven't been able to visit them since I was in middle school! I got tons and tons of squishy snuggles in and even got to take some precious photos of Breighton, Shelby and Corey! 

Shelby is such an inspiring Mom. She's going to school, working, and taking care of her little guy all at the same time! I loved seeing how comfortable she is as a Mom, and just how much she loves her sweet little guy! I was super tempted to bring him home with me, but instead I just insisted that they make it out to Lynchburg to visit soon!

Elizabeth's Bridal Portraits: Lynchburg, Virginia Wedding Photographer

I totally have a love/hate thing going on with bridal portraits! I seriously LOOOOOOOVE so many things about them, like the bride getting another chance to get all dolled up, getting a trial run with hair and make-up, and the fact that they are so much fun. But then after the fact I have to keep them top-secret and that is just straight up torture!! haha! 

Coleton & Elizabeth got married on Saturday and oh my gooooooodness it was such a beautiful day! Elizabeth is the sweetest and made the most beautiful bride!! And that means I finally get to share photos from her bridal portraits!!  Thanks to The Trivium Estates in Forest for allowing the perfect spot for these!! 

Chancey Family || Lynchburg, VA Photographer

This session holds such a special place in my heart. I first met Dave & Rachael a few years ago, when they hired me to do their engagement photos. From there, a friendship quickly formed and I was able to capture their wedding photos, their maternity photos, and now their photos as a family of three!! 

Baby Charlie is seriously a dream, and I may have spent half of their session snuggling up with him and smelling his delicious baby smell!! hah. He was such a sweet lil guy during our session, he was exhausted but goodness those sweet dreamy photos!! It is SERIOUSLY such an honor to have these families invest in my business time and time again. I love being able to celebrate all these amazing moments!
