I'm Christy and I'm so happy that you stopped by! I'm a wedding photographer
based in Virginia; serving Hampton Roads, Richmond, Williamsburg, Charlottesville & Northern Virginia. Throughout the year I shoot a small amount of weddings in New Jersey where I started my business and my family lives. I've also shot destination weddings in and out of the country.
I absolutely love what I do and I feel so honored that I get to document my couples love stories and get to be apart of one of the most important days in their lives. Every couple has an unique story and after the wedding I want them to be able to look back at their photos and relieve how they felt in those moments.
While having digital photos are great in this day of age, I don't think they were meant to sit on an iPhone or a usb in a draw. I believe photos are meant to be printed and displayed in your home. Wedding albums are meant to be passed down to your grandchildren and become family heirlooms.
Where it all began.
We met through one of my best friends. Halloween party in Frederick, MD in 2007.
I was an art student at TCNJ studying to be an art teacher.
We did distance for about 3 years but we never went more than 3 weeks without seeing each other.
Rob proposed to me on Christmas Eve 2011 at my parents house in NJ.
We eloped on January 3rd 2012, only 10 days after we got engaged. I know we were crazy!
However we got to have our dream wedding on June 22 2013 in Northern Virginia at the Silverbrook Farm over looking the blue ridge mountains.

We finally got to go on our honeymoon exactly two years later to the land of fire and ice. Also known as Iceland.
A year later we got all dressed up and had a special couples anniversary session with my favorite photographer, Katelyn James Photography.
We don't have children yet but we have two furry and very cuddly Cavalier King Charles dogs, Cooper Henry & Paisley Jane. They are half siblings.
We've done about 9 military moves around the country. From Virginia Beach, Mississippi, San Diego, Monterey and Rhode Island. We're pretty much pro packers now!
We built our dream house in Virginia Beach, VA only a mile away from the beach where we plan to settle down for a very long time. I finally get to paint a wall!
I don't drink coffee but I love Lattes
Rob and I were once on the show Nat GEO wild because of
a video we captured at the national zoo in 2009.
Olives, cole slaw and pickles gross me out!
I'm not a big reader but I LOVE movies & shows based on good books.
Rob calls me a "backwoods barbie" because I'm a girly girl thats
not afraid to get dirty.
I never leave the house without my sunglasses.
Rob and I have driven across the country twice.
I lived in Italy for a semester in college..
I can't get enough of fluffy flowers in shades of light pink. Peonies and Cafe Au Lait Dahlia are my favorite. My dream is to build a whole garden of them someday.
I've always been fascinated with the traditions and history of the English Monarchy. Queen Victoria and The war of the roses especially. Our two Cavalier King Charles dogs middle names are inspired by King Henry VIII & Queen Jane Seymour.
I’ve always been fascinated with dinosaurs! After I saw Jurassic park in 3rd grade I wanted to be a paleontologist. While in Chicago I got to see "Sue" which is the largest and most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton found to date.
While I enjoy drinking prosecco; I'm a craft beer lover. My husband and I enjoy going to beer tastings and exploring local breweries.
Before my love of photography, I would either have a paint brush or a power tool in my hand. Drawing, Painting & anything Sculpture related to be exact. I have a passion for building and creating art.
Whats not to love about Shiplap walls, wood floors, large low windows and wrap around porches.
Which is why we built our house less than a mile from the beach. The best part about our beach is the water is so calm and shallow that its perfect for floating around on a raft.
