Katherine & Ethan grace the cover of WV Weddings

May 10, 2010

I’ve never been published in a magazine before. Actually, at this time last year, I’d still only shot two weddings.


So to have 50-some photos in the newest edition of the annual WV Weddings magazine is a huge, huge honor on its own.

But then a little over a week ago, Ethan texted me and told me the news – their photo made the cover.

(If you missed the blog posts from Katherine & Ethan’s wedding last year, click here for part one and click here for part two.)




I’ve been pinching myself for over a week. I worked my butt off (kinda sorta literally) last year, but to see it pay off like this? Wow.

To say I’m grateful for all my dear, sweet clients is an understatement. I love you all. And on top of all these amazing clients I have an endlessly supportive group of friends and family – I love you all, too.

I’m on top of the world these days. I can’t really believe that with all the awesome talent coming out of this state, something I shot would end up on the cover of a magazine that is on shelves for a year. And not just in West Virginia.

If you’re somewhere near a store on that list, definitely go buy a copy – because the whole thing is great. There are so many fabulous weddings featured. This magazine is really a great resource for any bride who’s getting married anywhere near West Virginia.

Many thanks to everyone at WV Living (especially Katie!!!) for everything. I’m so proud to be a part of your magazine!!

And many many thanks to Katherine & Ethan for letting me document your big day last June. You are both just as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside and I can’t wait to work with you again.

If you’re a bride looking for a great venue in West Virginia, definitely check out The Confluence Resort – that’s where Katherine & Ethan’s wedding took place and I’ve had nothing but great things to say about it.
