hi, new friend! i'm virginia!


I hope you enjoy looking through my latest work! As you can see, there’s something here for everyone, so grab a cup of coffee, settle in, and take a look! 


Based on the title, I know what you’re thinking. Your most important job is to take beautiful pictures! While that is SO IMPORTANT (please don’t book a wedding by yourself yet if you aren’t confident you can get great images for the bride and groom!), I think your most important job on a wedding day […]

Your Most Important Job as a Photographer on a Wedding Day


It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and even better when you’re getting MARRIED! This weekend I had the pleasure of capturing Lauren & David’s wedding and it gave me all the Christmas feels! & it didn’t hurt that their theme was ‘Tis the Season to be Married! Lauren & David were married at […]

Lauren & David | A Very Married Christmas in Marietta


 Can I just start by saying how easy these two are to work with? The funny thing to me is that they always say how awkward they are in front of a camera, but they are so not! Courtney giggles the whole time, and it makes for the most natural looking photos, because they are! […]

Courtney & Chris | Athens Christmas Wedding


 What to say about this wedding? I always struggle with this part because my couples become friends and it’s hard to put into words my feelings about their wedding day. So I’ll start with what I thought to be the most unique: First, Jessica & Adam got married on Adam’s birthday! Is that the best […]

Jessica & Adam | Christmas Wedding at Camp Kiwanis


From the bracelet that Kasey wore that Brooks’ late father gave his mother, to the customized wedding ring Brooks was given by Kasey, this Tybee Island wedding was filled with so many personal & beautiful details.

Kasey & Brooks | Tybee Island Wedding


There are SO MANY things to say about this wedding. First of all, WOW. I absolutely loved all of the glam at Jerika & Spencer’s wedding. Especially that glitter tablecloth I snagged off of a table for the detail shots! When I took Jerika & Spencer’s engagement pictures, I knew they were a fun, laid […]

Jerika & Spencer | Hawks Point Golf Club Fall Wedding


Evan & Ashton’s wedding felt like it was straight out of a fairy tale, from Ashton’s gorgeous gown to the beautiful florals to the way Evan treated her like a princess. It was all beautiful. I’ve known Evan since he was a little boy and to say that it was an honor to capture his […]

Evan & Ashton | The McGarity House Wedding


“I have been praying for this man for you for a long time,” Payton’s sister said in her reception speech. And there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. Payton & Brett’s wedding day was filled with so much joy and celebration and the coolest reception details. Payton was speaking my language with her book […]

Payton & Brett | Warner Robins Backyard Wedding


Kayla & Josh met years ago at Publix where they were both employed. And this past weekend, they were married! I love stories that start in the simplest of ways. Just like Kayla & Josh’s. There’s no way that Kayla would have known that her future husband would be there the first day she started […]

This past Saturday was the perfect day for a wedding at the Founders Memorial Garden in Athens, GA. The rain held off for us, and Amanda & Josh celebrated their wedding day alongside family and friends who love them dearly. I’ve known Amanda since we were 11 years old, and I was so honored to […]
