Lyndsay and Dustin

Rarely do I turn down the opportunity to spend a little time in my old Colonial Williamsburg stomping grounds. So I took a quick trip to Virginia to meet up with Lyndsay and Dustin for their engagement photo shoot. After dodging some storms the day before, we ventured down the beautiful Colonial Parkway to spend […]

An Ode to Nieces

I got to spend a little QT with Mae-berry last week during my visit to Charlottesville, which resulted in a few new photos of the little lady cutting up on Mimi and Papo’s farm. The incomparable Anna C., (Mae’s 4-year-old big sis), was off on another adventure so she escaped this weekend’s photo shoot. But […]

Casey and Jeff

Here is Casey and Jeff’s Short Story, the highlights of the documentary wedding video from their July wedding in Raleigh, North Carolina. If you didn’t see the earlier post, check out For Mama, the surprise family documentary video Casey gave her mom as a wedding gift, and you’ll see why I’m really going to miss […]

Jana and Chris

Terri Flagg and I took a trip up to Northern Virginia to photograph Jana and Chris’s lovely Old Town Alexandria wedding. All of the members of the wedding party were great sports as we trekked around in search of Jana and Chris’s favorite DC and Norther Virginia views…and got shooed away by some Fort Myer […]

For Mama

This video is the result of a creative idea hatched by bride Casey Wilson as a surprise gift for her mom. Casey contacted me last winter after seeing my Surviving Siblings personal documentary project. She hired me to do a documentary wedding video and asked if I’d be willing to also do a short family documentary […]

Born Into Coal

Coal queen pageant contestant Arianna Bailey competes for a crown to represent her family’s way of life. Former miner Goose Stewart lives with the memories of a mine explosion. One thing binds both families: coal. I co-produced “Born into Coal” with Cath Spangler as part of Coal: A Love Story, an interactive film that uses […]

Cristina and Hal

The lovely Cristina and her dapper fiance, Hal, joined me in the UNC arboretum and in and around Chapel Hill and Carrboro for some engagement photo fun. What a lovely way to spend a North Carolina fall evening. I’m so excited for you too!

Jocelyn and Rob

Jocelyn and Rob are doing construction on the Raleigh home they’ll soon share together. They thought it would be a great place for an engagement photo shoot to mark this important time in their lives. I think so too! I love adding bits of the couple’s story into an engagement shoot. Thanks for the sweet […]

Brianna and Alex

I’m excited to finally post Bri and Alex’s documentary wedding video. It’s always great to be back in Richmond, Va., (my old stomping ground) and Bri, Alex and their families and friends made it well worth the trip. Bri was about as laid back a bride as you can imagine, and her dress was flat […]

Dreams Delayed

Dreams Delayed is a multimedia documentary web project I produced for my masters thesis. I wanted to tell the overarching story of access to higher education for undocumented students using three different stories: The story of a brother and sister, both were raised in the United States, one of them is undocumented. The story of a […]
