photographer for the elegant bride based in atlanta

hey there! i'm virginia!

I’m a wife, momma, and photographer who is in love with her little family and her business. I have two kiddos, Ella Nash & Will Henry, & am married to my best friend, Philip.

I officially started my photography business in 2016 and have been photographing sweet love stories ever since. 

During mine and Philip's engagement & wedding, I fell in love with photography. I thought it was fascinating and slowly started learning. It was my "dream job," but I never really thought it was attainable. 

But here I am today and I am so thankful that I get to do something that I love so much! 

A few other things I love: my relationship with Jesus, running, reading, chocolate, the city, and the beach (preferably St. Simons Island, but I'll take any beach.)

I can't wait to learn more about you!

I’m a huge bookworm. Like, really.

I was the Vice President of the book club in the 6th grade (that definitely didn’t earn me any popularity points) and I can’t remember the last time I didn’t have a book that I was reading.

My favorite time to read is at night as I’m going to sleep (Kindles were the best inventions!) and my favorite types of books are stories, whether they’re fiction or nonfiction.

I’m kind of addicted to it. My grandma started letting me have coffee when I visited her when I was 5 years old (no joke!) and although it wasn’t until high school that my parents let me have it regularly, I’ve been hooked ever since. Sometimes I’m excited to go to bed at night because I know when I wake up, I get a big cup of coffee!

And let’s be real, I don’t only drink it in the mornings.

If you want to know how much I like chocolate, just go take a look at my recipe board on Pinterest. 95% of the recipes are chocolate desserts.

I may have a problem, but I’m ok with it. Some say diamonds are a girl’s best friend. I say chocolate is!
