I somehow never really made it to SoCal when I lived in the Sacramento area a few years ago, and when the opportunity came up to travel there in March of 2020, I said yes in an instant. On my first day in San Diego, I met up with one of my past couples at […]
On a day that felt more like a summer one than fall (it was probably nearing 75 degrees in late November!) I met up with Zoe, Hunter, and their adorable pups for a session at Adkins Arboretum, one of my favorite nature spots on the Eastern Shore. They are planning to get married later this […]
It’s still hard to believe we have a semi normal summer at all, yet through the hard times comes a light, and I’m so happy so many of us can be back doing the things we love! Samantha and Billy’s engagement session was the best way to get back to work, and spending the evening […]
You always get excited when a family member get’s engaged, and when they ask you to photograph their wedding, it is so hard to say no, especially when they have been one of your biggest supporters from the beginning of your business journey.

When I first suggested going to Shenandoah for Jessica and Garrett’s engagement session, I don’t think we fully knew what we were getting ourselves into. I drove through the park entrance with 25 minutes still to go until I reached our meeting spot and each overlook had me thinking what am I doing to this poor couple?! Winding up a mountain for 13 miles at 40 mph really took me back to Highway 1, and motion sickness, but hey, new experiences with new couples are a good combination, and with this being the first time all of us visited Shenandoah, it was an amazing evening to be on a mountain top.
At the end of the session, we all probably said 15+ times about how we were glad we chose Shenandoah. I’m even more excited to be doing it all over again for their wedding next year (however, this time we will stay in Maryland)! I hope soon I get to go back though. There is something about the mountains that makes me feel at home (could have been from living on the side of one for a year ;))
