Annie and Ben dance at Moss Vineyards after their intimate wedding

Experience has given me this little secret when it comes to picking a micro wedding venue. The best venues are often not venues! At least, that’s not their primary role.

Blue Ridge Parkway Engagement Session | Charlottesville, Virginia | Charlottesville Wedding Photographer

Adventure Session Inspo

The central district of Skyline Drive is my jam — I know it intimately and so it’s where I take most of my couples for engagement sessions. But in the winter, Skyline Drive closes often for snow and ice, while next door Blue Ridge Parkway can be open. So I always warn my winter/early spring […]
