Virginia Engagement Photographer

Blue Ridge Parkway Engagement - Roanoke, Virginia - Andrea & Tyler

Blue Ridge Parkway Engagement - Roanoke, Virginia - Andrea & Tyler

The first time I met Andrea, she was the bridesmaid AND wedding planner at one of my previous weddings. When she contacted me about being her wedding photographer, she still didn’t have a date set and I got worried I wasn’t going to be able to photograph it, since I already had a good number of dates booked. Andrea, on the other side wasn’t worried at all. She said “no worries, we’ll book a date that you still have available!” and so she did…

What is your favorite thing to do together?: 
“We love to cook together when we can! Whether it's a meal completely from scratch or a Blue Apron meal (that Tyler always makes fun of Andrea for ordering); it's always fun to get in the kitchen, drink some wine and make a meal together”.

We also enjoy going out to a sports bar, hanging out and watching football when we are able. It's nice to sit back and relax on a Sunday after a busy weekend in the hospitality world.

When you think of an engagement session different than other ones and out of the ordinary, well this is it!
When I met Sarah & Alex I knew immediately that they would be fun, but never did I know that they would push me outside my comfort zone…

We started the portraits with their super cute and very suspicious puppy, Kali. She could not get comfortable for pictures.. Seeing her expressions was hilarious! Like why did they bring me out here?! And why is that lady following us around?! I can’t get over with how cute she is..

They then went for a romantic canoe ride and the light was just perfect. They had told me their story and even though I am terrified of any kind of reptiles, I knew it would make their day to include some sort of lizard in their pictures, so I asked them and their faces literally lit up…

We ended up hiking and chasing a beautiful sunset overlooking the Appalachian Mountains…
Here is more about them!

Apple Picking Engagement Session with Emily & Chris - Charlottesville, Va

When I first Skyped with Emily & Chris I knew that we would get along… One of their favorite things to do is cooking! And coming from an Italian family cooking has always been a big thing for us. Dinner time, as most of my friends know, is very important to us. It’s the time when, after a full day of working, running errands, my son’s thousands of activities we finally get to sit together and chat while we enjoy a meal.

The evening we were Skyping, Chris was cooking meatballs!!! A match made in heaven!

We started off their engagement session picking apples at the Carter Mountain Orchard , then we headed towards the University of Virginia which is where they both went to college. Here is a little more of their story…
