It was Fourth of July weekend when we sat down with some of our closest friends, the McAbee Family and anxiously waited for the firework show to begin and for Hayden to call his mom and dad with the good news that his beautiful girlfriend, Gracelyn had indeed said “yes” to his marriage proposal! When the phone rang and Hayden and Gracelyn appeared on the screen with bright smiling faces, teary eyes and a sparkling ring on Gracelyn’s left hand we all screamed in delight!

Hayden and Gracelyn are getting married and we are just as excited for them today as we were that very night! This couple is the perfect match and watching their love story unfold has been such a beautiful testimony to God’s perfect timing and great love! Gracelyn matches Hayden’s outgoing personality, heart of gold and love for adventure in every way and we have quickly claimed her as a best friend too! Their love for the fall season is as big as the blue October sky and we loved that they are planning their wedding day in that very month!

For their engagement session, there was no question that it was going to take place in the woods and on a mountain top so we headed up to one of their favorite spots on the Blue Ridge Parkway and captured some breathtaking images of this gorgeous couple as they cozied up and enjoyed God’s beautiful creation!

Saying these two are naturals in front of the camera is an understatement and we had a blast working with them to capture their love for each other in photographs!

Thank you, Hayden and Gracelyn for the honor of documenting your love story! We are looking forward to your wedding day and we can’t wait for you to see a few of our favorite images from your engagement session below!

It was Drew and Morgan’s wedding day and there was a busy bustle of joyful preparation as we drove up to Brown Farm, excited to begin the day with this beautiful bride and groom and their super sweet families!

The sky was blue with a hint of fall in the cool crisp breeze and the rustic decor of greenery, cotton, rich shades of purple and blooming mums filled the venue with a welcoming appearance!

A breathtaking view of the Blue Ridge Mountains surrounded Drew and Morgan as they said “I do” in the company of friends and family! The sun was setting in the sky during their ceremony and the golden glow lit up the bride and groom’s faces to clearly see their happiness and love for one another as they excitedly committed their lives forever to each other!

Smiles and laughter followed through the night with great food, dancing, fellowship, and a fun sparkler exit!

Congratulations, Drew and Morgan! We are so honored to have been a part of your gorgeous wedding day! May God richly bless you both as you start this exciting new journey together!

We had a blast working with the Justus Family when we met up to capture Hudson’s one year portraits! This cute little guy just celebrated his very first birthday and we feel so honored to be a part of the celebration! We really enjoyed getting to know this beautiful family better as we explored the location they chose for their photo session!

Hudson was such a sweetie during the session and we loved incorporating all of the great props his mommy brought to help document such special memories!

Happy Birthday, Hudson! We can’t wait to watch you grow!

Derek and Rachael have welcomed a precious baby boy into their family and what a joy it has been watching their love story continue to grow as they become parents!

From their engagement session, bridal portrait session, wedding day, maternity session and Maverek’s newborn portraits it has been an honor having Derek and Rachael and their beautiful family in front of our cameras to capture some of life’s most special moments!

Baby Maverek is such a cutie and was a natural in front of the camera for his very first photo session! His sweet blue eyes, perfect little face and adorable personality stole our hearts the moment we met him!

Derek and Rachael’s lifestyle session was a dream to photograph and we felt so welcome in their beautiful new home! Derek custom designed and built their first home and along with Rachael’s amazing interior design skills, we felt as though we were photographing this sweet couple on the set of Fixer Upper! White shiplap and all!!!!

Thank you, Derek and Rachael for the privilege of documenting precious memories for your beautiful family!
