Some of you may have caught me hinting at the big news already but today’s the big announcement day! I’m moving to Charlottesville in 2020!! I’m excited to be back in Charlottesville this time as a resident and fully able to experience all that this vibrant little town has to offer! I feel like as a college student I had four years to really immerse myself on Grounds, but without a car and with a grueling double major schedule full of classes & extracurricular commitments, I didn’t really get to explore Charlottesville as a town outside the campus very much! I already have a bucket list of items I’m looking to cross off and am super excited to also get to know all the other creatives and entrepreneurs that call Cville home!

Also, with moving out I can’t wait to have a whole apartment to decorate! I’ve been stalking Instagram and Pinterest and budgeting away to find the perfect couch, tables, decor & accents 🙂 If you see any furniture/art prints/decor you think that you think would have a new home in my new home, please share it with me! I think this is one of the things that I am most excited about!


What This Means for 2020 Wedding Clients

Not much changes for you guys! I’ve knocked out everyone’s engagement sessions with the exception of one (hi Alison!). I’ll still be pit-stopping in Herndon where my parents live before any weddings so I won’t be driving too long on your wedding day morning! If you’re getting married further south than Cville I’ll be booking a hotel so I’m close to your venue and ready to go on your wedding day 🙂 I will probably be a little bit busier than anticipated in the spring or summer as I move and settle in but I’m excited to still be able to serve everyone just as I would from back home in Herndon!

Well, that’s all for now, I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated as more plans are finalized, I have my move-in date set and start the transition!

For anyone getting married near Charlottesville, I still have 4 wedding dates left in 2020 and am starting to book out 2021 as well! Pop on over to the wedding page to learn more about the full wedding photography experience if you’re looking to work together!
