I am a Virginia-based wedding and portrait photographer. My husband, AB, and I met at the very young age of 20. Over the past decade we've truly grown up together and experienced many adventures together. The greatest adventure and blessing being the birth of our 2 little ones, Addison Shay and Grey Owens. Our favorite things to do are enjoying time outdoors, participating in our community run clubs, and supporting our local restaurants and businesses here in Williamsburg. I am so grateful to be fulfilling my dream of being a mother and a business woman. It certainly has it's challenges, but I wouldn't want it any other way!
Getting to photograph weddings is such an honor and privilege. As a past bride myself, I know first-hand the excitement of getting your photos back and being able to relive the best day ever! It is so important to have pictures that really capture the joy and essence of the day, the raw and candid moments, and all the pretty little details. And I promise to do just that!
Nothing matters more than this. Addison and Grey are our "Why" in every thing we do and every decision we make.
Being a mother is my greatest blessing and achievement. There is never a dull moment in our house, but it is such a beautiful chaos! I love my little family so much!
We decided to move to Williamsburg, Virginia in 2019 and it was the absolute best decision! It is such a wonderful place to raise a family. There are lots of great restaurants, plenty of outdoor activities and best of all, no traffic! After all, it was named the 'South's Best Small Town' in Southern Living Magazine!
P.s Colonial Williamsburg is the perfect location for portrait sessions!
I mean, who doesn't love good food? In my opinion, tacos and margaritas are THE best food and drink pairing. Forget flowers and diamonds, just buy me a burger or surprise me with a box of donuts!
One of my favorite wedding day details are the flowers! They are the most important accessory to your wedding dress! They are going to featured in so many of your pictures so it's important to find the right florist to make your dream bouquet! My personal favorite arrangements are loose, organic, and neutral with a pop of color!
| Cold weather and snow- give me summer all year long
| Sushi-I know I'm probably the minority here
| Bugs- especially the ones with wings. I may run away like a crazy person
| Alarm clocks- I absolutely dread having to wake up to an alarm
| Scary movies and Halloween-I'll never understand the thrill of being scared?!
| Coffee first thing in the morning- a splash of creamer is a must
| Dresses that are long and flowy
| Red wine and binging Bravo after a long day
| Shopping at Home Goods for all home decor
