  • Devon & Brian Wedding at Peaks of Otter

  • This fall wedding at the Peaks of Otter Lodge in Bedford Virginia was as lovely as it could be.  With pops of pink and navy to stand out against the green mountainous Blue Ridge Parkway landscape, this couple put on a perfect day to celebrate their marriage with their closest friends and family. I had the privilege of meeting Devon & Brian in 2014 when they modeled for me during a styled shoot at a local vineyard. They were up for anything we needed that day, and if you know anything about a styled shoot- they are demanding!!  I hoped I would get the chance to work with them again someday, then just a short 5 years later we were doing engagement pictures and planning for their wedding!! See their story of the day below.

    Are you looking for a beginning photography class?  Because, let’s be honest: your camera is set on automatic, isn’t it?  You know,  the safe green rectangle.  It’s OK.  I won’t tell anyone.  But I have a secret: you’re a better photographer than you think.  In fact, you’re a better photographer than your camera thinks!

    Come, join me for a photography for beginners class, and I’ll show you how to make your camera do what YOU want.  Let me teach you to turn off the auto setting and explore the amazing world of photography!

    These fun hands-on photography for beginners classes will give you the confidence and skills you need to take better photos!  Let’s discover what all those knobs and buttons on your camera do, learn basic composition, understand light, and begin to unlock the mystery that is your camera!

    And, while we’re at it, I may even show you a trick or two for looking skinnier on camera?!  That alone is worth the cost of admission, right?!  So come on!  Lose the fear, drop the insecurities, and let’s do this!  You’re a better photographer than you think and I can’t wait to see you in class!
