Hi there! Welcome to the blog, a journal about my life, weddings, portraits, our home, and more. Stay a while and say hello!


Lauren + Tyler


Good morning y’all!

I hope y’all are recovering well from the past week that we were covered in snow and are so excited to celebrate Lauren and Tyler’s engagement as much as I am!

The Couple

Lauren and Tyler are two of the most hard-working people I have ever met, but it’s their relationship that makes me even more in love with them. From the moment they told me how they met (in their hometowns) to hearing all about their proposal story, I just couldn’t get enough of the details! They got engaged at the Winery at Bull Run in Manassas, VA so we couldn’t think of anywhere better to take them back to for their engagement session! However, if you know me well enough by now after being an avid follower on the blog, you’ll know just how to get straight to my heart…dessert! Lauren LOVES cheesecake just as much as I do! As soon as she said that, I just knew this was a perfect fit. 🙂

The Engagement Session

For their engagement session, we spent the day at the winery and then drove a little further down to the Manassas Battlefields for some gorgeous sunset photos! One of my favorite things about these two is how much they love each other (and show it) and make sure that they work towards a strong marriage. One of the fun parts of my job is following my couples along on social media! Lauren and Tyler are actually reading The Five Love Languages and I always suggest that all of my couples read this book before they say “I Do!”.

These two are tying the knot on August 13th of this year in Herndon, VA and I just cannot wait – I know their day is going to be so much fun and filled with so many beautiful moments!

    Adorable! My husband and I read the Five Love Languages before marriage and it was a nice way to gain awareness of ways to show love other than our own. Love and Respect was a game changer book for us though. I like how you set up your blog post too. 🙂
