I hope all of you had a fantastic weekend! Mine was complete with a wonderful wedding that I can’t wait to share! (More from that on Wednesday!) I am currently in the middle of a stretch of 4 weddings in 4 weeks – it is amazing!! Before kicking off this crazy month of July, I made it a point to visit with a few of my industry friends. One of those visits was to Buttercups Floral’s Cut Flower Garden.
Laura has started a beautiful flower garden on her property. It’s full of fresh flowers of all kinds, succulents, and also BEES! I was very curious about the bees because I knew so little about what went in to raising them. It’s a lot of work but Laura is a total pro! She has four hives and they’re all doing great!
I really enjoyed spending time with her and also hearing about her big plans for the garden. She is currently using some of the flowers for her gorgeous arrangements, but hopes to eventually get almost all of her flowers from the garden itself! This means a big expansion that will happen over the next few years. She also hopes to have honey from the bees to use for favors – it’s an amazing idea!
I am so inspired by all Laura has going on in her business. She is truly passionate about her craft and someone who makes things happen! We have our first wedding of the year together this weekend and I cannot wait to photograph her work! I know it’s going to be beautiful!
Here are a few images from our time together:
Roughly once a month, I introduce one of my favorite vendors in the industry– completely unpaid, just out of sheer love of working with them.
In this month’s installment, I am proud to feature floral artist Laura Walker of Buttercups Floral Design. Laura is incredibly gifted at what she does. She is a true artist and her medium is flowers – or doors, or birdcages, or glass vases. . . What blows me away about Laura is her creativity. She can take a bride’s vision and bring it to life no matter what it is! As a result, her work spans all styles. She can accommodate anyone’s taste in a way that’s true to herself, which is really difficult to do! Without further ado, meet Laura!

These three words are my approach to photography. I strive for my work to possess all three qualities.
Timeless – Your collection should stand the test of time. I want you to look back at your images five, ten, twenty years from now and still love them as much as you did the first time you saw them.
Touching – Your images should evoke emotion and take you back to the moment they were captured.
True – Your images should represent YOU! They should be true to who you were at the time they were taken.
I hold myself accountable to these three standards and always shoot with them in mind.
All collections include: Eight hours of wedding day coverage by Beth T, hundreds of edited high-resolution images delivered digitally through a customized online gallery and a complimentary engagement session.
Please contact me for detailed pricing information.
Sessions begin at $350 and include edited high-resolution images.

Where do you typically shoot?
I like working with my clients to come up with the perfect location. The ultimate decision is made by the client – I merely serve as a reference!
When do you typically shoot?
As I prefer shooting outdoors in natural light, sessions are held either in the morning or evening. Typically 2 hours after sunrise or 2 hours before sunset.
What should I wear?
In my experience, there is not a particular color or pattern that photographs better/worse than another. So, I always tell clients to wear something that is true to who they are. If you wear sneakers more than heels, take that into consideration. You want your photos to be true to you – and outfit choice plays a critical role.
How long before I get to see my photos?
I will post a blog sneak peek within a few days of your shoot or event.
For Weddings, you can expect your gallery of images 4 weeks from your wedding date – the perfect one month anniversary present!
For Senior & Portrait sessions, you can expect your gallery of images within 2 weeks time.
What products do you offer?
I offer a variety of products for you to choose from including: Leather Flush-mount Albums, Guest Books, Canvas Wall Art, custom designed Thank You cards, Save-the-Dates, Graduation Announcements, and much more.

A few weeks ago, I was honored to have worked with a team of fabulous wedding professionals (credits below) in creating a “Modern Musician” inspired wedding shoot! With contemporary components like orchids, terrariums and dark purple accents, this shoot satisfies every modern bride’s desire for a sleek, streamlined look. The Bright Box Theater in downtown Winchester provided the perfect backdrop. It’s unique combination of historic and ultramodern elements highlighted the essence of this shoot.
Last week I had the opportunity to photograph one of my first styled shoots! I was honored to have worked with a team of fabulous wedding professionals (credits below) in creating a “Shenandoah” inspired wedding shoot! With rustic elements like burlap, bird cages and a naked cake, this shoot borrowed from the natural elements found in the Shenandoah region. Furthermore, the view at Blue Mountain Lodge epitomizes Shenandoah. To highlight the view from the mountaintop, we created a ceremony backdrop made of old doors! It framed the view perfectly while continuing that rustic feel. Any bride can draw inspiration from this shoot if you’re planning a laid-back, country-style wedding! I personally loved the s’more bar – such a fun way to continue the party!
I would also like to thank my wonderful, supportive husband, Josh, for being the “groom” in this shoot!
