Oh I how love big families! Jessica is one of seven in her family, and with so much family running around, there was no shortage of laughter, tears or love on her wedding day. Big families always bring big celebrations and what a great celebration this was! Below are just a few of my favorites from Jessica and Phil’s gorgeous wedding at Smith Creek Farm.

The following talented vendors contributed to their day: Brenda and Erica from Platinum Salon and Spa, hair; Smokey Joe’s, catering: Kenny’s Flowers, florist; Mary’s Hope on Church Cove, preparation venue; Smith Creek Farm, ceremony and reception venue; Mary Ann Rahall, From this Day Forward, officiant; and Jill Christine Design and Photography, photography.

Smith Creek Farm wedding


I have documented a lot of firsts for this family — their wedding, chopping their first Christmas tree, expecting a baby, baby’s first visit to a Christmas tree farm, and now baby’s first birthday! I can’t tell you how honored I am that they have come back for each of these important milestones. I have loved watching them grow as a family!



Watching this little girl grow throughout the year has been so much fun! We often think of a photo session as documenting a moment in time, but in the process we’re creating memories at the session itself! That I not only get to capture these memories, but be part of them as well is such an honor.

On a separate note, how much fun is this hot air balloon? This may need to be a staple in my prop collection!

Joy. This is the one word that comes to mind when I think of Caitlin and Jason and their wedding. Joy radiated throughout everyone in attendance, and most abundantly through the bride and groom themselves. I’m certain these two could not stop smiling if they had tried! Below are just a few of my favorites of this beautiful couple. I loved working with them so much that I had to refrain from posting their entire set of wedding photos!

We’ve had a lot of warm weather this winter, but Kim and Andrew didn’t luck out with nice temperatures for their engagement session. We originally rescheduled due to ice, and the second date we chose happened to be one of the coldest this winter. But we persevered — rosy cheeks, red noses and all — and it was definitely worth it! I’m hoping these two will be rewarded with a beautiful warm fall day for their wedding later this year.
