I photographed their wedding about 2 years ago. (And yes, the previous post is about Tyler’s brother and his family) I love these two a whole bunch! When I found out Caitlin was pregnant I was over the moon excited for them and when she asked me to photograph their Birth Story I think I about died of excitement!

I have known both Evan and Rachel for almost my whole life. Rachel is my cousin and we grew up made three-tenths of a mile from each other. Our families went to church together and were pretty close so we would see each other at family parties/picnics and we sometimes spent the night together. Evan […]

So about a month ago I participated in a traveling Bridal show in Abingdon, VA. The plan was for brides to travel to three different wedding venues in the area so they could tour the venues and meet a handful of wedding venders (florists, caterers, photographers, etc) at each stop. Unfortunately the weather was pretty […]

About a month ago my brother told me that one of his closest friends, Heath, was planning to propose to his girlfriend, Elizabeth (EJ to her friends and family).  I had known Heath since we were all just kids so I was super excited! Will asked me to secretly photograph it while he helped set […]

On Saturday morning, December 12, I woke up at 5:25 a.m. to my phone buzzing. Normally, I sleep like a rock, but the day before, I got a very exciting text saying that Cala was having contractions; so when the phone buzzed I was already expecting “the call.” I answered quietly so I wouldn’t wake up Mike and Ellie. I was greeted with a very perky, “Hey Emily! How ya doing? You ready to take some pictures?!”

Two weeks ago I woke up excited, knowing that it was the day that Joanna and Josh were going to welcome their little boy into the world. I already had a text on my phone saying that things were moving along at a good pace so I hopped out of bed (carefully, so I wouldn’t […]
