You guys … as soon as I walked onto the Estate on the day of Sarah and Tyler’s wedding, I immediately felt like my heart was going to explode. You know my love for details and color and boy did Sarah bring it! Her aunt, Kim, dressed Sarah’s special day beautifully. Not to mention, Sarah & Tyler. These two are absolutely precious and I could photograph them all. day. long. Enjoy!


How did you two meet?
Katherine: “Our story has lots of twists and turns! We met back in college through his parents, went on one date to Yamato’s (LOL) and then I didn’t really have any interest after that. Years later we re-connected in Charlotte around last call at a bar…it’s quite the long drawn out story….but the rest is history :)”


Katherine & James


Adam: “Pretty sure Kris didn’t notice me as early as I noticed her. And she was certainly too cute for me to form any intentions on, so it forced us to just be friends. In its own way it was a blessing. I guess the first thing we really did together was short-term babysitting. Not that we were co-entrusted with children, but Brian and Alex trusted Kris enough to watch after their two kids and also make sure I didn’t get into any trouble while they weren’t looking. Certainly only one of us had diaper bag authorization (and that was just fine with me). From the moment we had an inkling of interest, the tone changed rapidly. I was utterly enthralled. Kris had already decided to move to Montana and make a fresh start, so our conversations were wide-ranging and intense. She seemed like an adventurer (she isn’t) and I seemed self-assured and interesting (I’m not). But both of us had an idea of a new ‘me’ and were on a path. I don’t think either of us had an idea those paths were going to line up so quickly. Laughs, tears, puzzled looks, embarrassing revelations…our time talking and visiting spanned the gamut of relationship interactions super quickly.”


Now that sweet Mary is a married woman I can FINALLY share her bridal portraits. I absolutely LOVED this session at Stoneleigh Estate in Stanleytown, VA. Stoneleigh was completed in 1932 and was the home of former Virginia Governor Thomas B. Stanley. Gardens, intricate woodwork, brick walkways and exquisite details make this 22,000 square foot mansion a thing of beauty.
