Melanie and Carter’s summer wedding at the Clifton Inn was a dream come true! It was the perfect combination of elegance and garden party – garden party chic – as Melanie once said to me. From the croquet lawn to the cute little terriers on Carter’s tie – every detail was taken into account. But, for me, it isn’t about the pretty flowers (though I love them!) or the flowing gowns (I love twirly bridal dresses with long flowing veils). Now at the end of the day, it is about that just married my best friend on this perfect day and all things seem possible! The magic of wedding days is all the people who come together and create this one happy little moment. It makes all other dreams seem within reach!

The Clifton Inn has this amazing garden that makes it a star among Charlottesville wedding venues and the perfect setting for a summer wedding. 



I never thought I would be a wedding photographer. I started my professional career in Boulder, Colorado, riding on the backs of motorcycles, chasing professional cyclists through winding roads and epic climbs. I never thought I would find another career as exhilarating and rewarding but I was DEFINITELY wrong. I photographed weddings in Colorado, but it wasn’t until moving East, to Charlottesville, Virginia, that I really fell in love with them. I love all of the beauty of the flowers and the pretty clothing, but I what I LOVE MOST is documenting the love between the TWO OF YOU, and the COMPLETE JOY of your BEST DAY EVER.
