Photos are so much more than just an image frozen in time. Something I believe very deeply is that behind every moment on your wedding day there is a deeper story to tell. We are layers and layers of history and experiences, all of which have led up to your day. There is meaning to be captured; your real story to tell.

Rob works hard to capture the personality of the couple and others so each picture tells a story.
Sarah, Fairfax, Virginia Wedding
A massive sanctuary puts pressure on this tired young flower girl.
The ceremony was about to begin at a large Catholic cathedral.
The young flower girl had a great morning but was now tired and faced the challenge of walking down the aisle of this garantuan sanctuary by herself.
All that was left was to put on her heart necklace, but no one could convince her to put it on. Mom, bridesmaids, friends; nothing worked.
As I waited in the foyer for the ceremony to begin grandpa bent down and gently whispered in her ear.
This is the moment with grandpa that I captured!
ONE OF THE MOST FUN rECEPTIONS I've EVER CAPTURED!
A packed dance floor filled with guests having a great time.
The bride and groom bring out their custom-made pinatas and each guest makes an attempt to claim the winning blow.
I stood as close as I dared, ready and waiting.
Finally a guest swung, the pinata burst open, and the moment froze.
An intimate, emotional moment on the dance floor.
Some of the most intimate photos at a reception are of the bride and groom. But this one is different.
This is Ruth Anne and her brother Scott. The reason this image carries so much meaning for them is that their father had passed away before the wedding.
Scott had the honor of walking her down the aisle that day.
During the reception, the perfect slow song came on, couples filled the dance floor, and these two siblings laughed and cried together.
COME along TO ONE OF THE FIRST WEDDINGS that made me say "WHOA."
I had been shooting for many years, but this was my first wedding in the Shenandoah National Park.
Ryan and Mandy love the Shenandoah and the outdoors, so they wanted an epic landscape shot that captured it all.
We had strange weather that day. First sunny skies, then dark, moody cloud cover.
We went to a spot I knew would be perfect but we got something totally unexpected!
We watched as a storm passed through the valley. Combined with the dramatic sunset light, this was a moment to remember!
Feel the anticipation in this quaint country style church
Kristi and Fritz were getting married in a quaint church building that sits in a Virginia valley surrounded by rolling green hills.
Fritz was waiting inside the sanctuary as Kristi began to walk outside with her Dad to the front of the church doors.
I waited patiently, looking through a window of the church I had seen earlier.
Kristi and her Dad to walk down path and this is the moment I captured.
"He seemed genuinely interested in us and our story which I think really helped him connect with us and get the shots we were hoping for."
