Edward Jones {STAUNTON, VA}

     Here's the deal folks... Whether it's a new baby, a beautiful bride, a stunning venue, or an eclectic display, if it's unique and moving- I am going to photograph it. It's that simple. Yesterday I was sent to Staunton by Mariner Media to photograph an Edward Jones office and staff. I had done these types of shoots several times before, but this space inspired me.

     Meet Seth Liskey. He bought this old building in downtown Staunton, gutted it, stripped it, and started from scratch, while leaving behind all the unique, historical charm the building had to offer. Photographing this fantastic space reminded me that the details really do matter.
      I often wonder if the hours I spend editing my images or even the time it takes to create these blog posts, is really worth all the effort. And yet, when I walk into an office like this one, where I'm met with exposed brick, old natural wood beams, ambient track lighting, and historic photographs of that very building hanging on the wall... it most certainly makes an impression. Because if someone puts that kind of consideration and effort into an office space... it gives you a pretty good idea of the consideration and effort they likely put into each of their clients.

The wedding season has officially begun, and last Saturday, I had the opportunity to be a second shooter at a Kevin Remington wedding that was absolutely breathtaking! The weather couldn't have been any more perfect, the venue was full of detailed charm, and the couple was absolutely stellar. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love to be the main photographer for my own amazing clients, but I have to admit, it's kind of nice to pull 'second shooter' duties every once in a while. I get to stand back, take in the big picture, and all the small details that come together to make each wedding unique. Congratulations to Ed and Kathleen and here's to a fantastic wedding season ahead! :)  photo Kathleen--Ed-edit4-copy_zps95c11394.jpg photo Kathleen--Ed-edit6-copy_zpsbbbdea1a.jpg photo Kathleen--Ed-edit7-copy_zps5ffab842.jpg photo KEc4_zps4a1f7621.jpg photo Kathleen--Ed-edit16-copy_zpsf876ca78.jpg photo Kathleen--Ed-edit5-copy_zpscb331c9e.jpg photo KE2_zps0d3e14fc.jpg photo Kathleen--Ed-edit15-copy_zps4071a14d.jpg photo Kathleen--Ed-edit14-copy_zps8dd78b4b.jpg photo Kathleen--Ed-edit17-copy_zpsf382421e.jpg photo KEc3_zpsf02191d2.jpg photo Kathleen--Ed-edit20-copy_zpsd96b5ce2.jpg photo Kathleen--Ed-edit21-copy_zpse7d2e81b.jpg photo Kathleen--Ed-edit24-copy_zps1e76c757.jpg photo KEc5_zpsc021008d.jpg photo KEc7_zpsdade4f04.jpg photo Kathleen--Ed-edit36-copy_zpsb46a21c2.jpg photo KEc8_zps85e93641.jpg photo KE-c1_zps15002f07.jpg

Brierley Hill Bed + Breakfast {LEXINGTON, VA}

Yesterday I had the opportunity to meet Dave and Karen, the wonderful couple who recently took over the Brierley Hill Bed and Breakfast in Lexington. The location simply COULD NOT be more beautiful! Only minutes from downtown Lexington, and yet it has the quaint feel of country life with absolutely FANTASTIC views of the Blueridge Mountains.

This venue is the PERFECT location for the couple looking to have an intimate wedding weekend with their closest friends and family. I say 'weekend' because their package not only includes the rental of their entire property, it also includes the rental of the Magnolia Cottage (for two nights) and the rental of their 5 other guestrooms for an evening. Not to mention a dinner at the Southern Inn, tickets for a carriage ride downtown, and fresh flowers and champagne in the bridal suite. What? Where were these people when I got married?!!

If the last paragraph has made you swoon, you have to check out their website for more details!
