Memorial Day Weekend in Fredericksburg

On Saturday, local Boy and Girl Scouts lit a luminary for each of the¬†15,300 soldiers buried in the Fredericksburg National Cemetery. I can’t possibly convey the staggering effect of seeing this in person, but I hope these photos give you some idea.

Jym & Anna: Engaged!

I had the pleasure of joining my friends Jym and Anna for a fun engagement session starting at their house in downtown¬†Fredericksburg and continuing at the amazing farm where they’ll be married in June. Along the way we had faux seriousness, genuine goofiness, and a pitchfork. I can’t wait to be back for the wedding!

RIFF 2011

After I had such a great time at last year’s Rappahannock Independent Film Festival, I made sure to get on board early this year so that I could cover it from beginning to end. Despite the severe thunderstorm before the concert on Thursday night and the hurricane during the screenings on Saturday, the festival was […]

Blackberries and Peaches

One of the best things about summer in Virginia is fresh fruit. Until our own ice cream muskmelons ripen, we’ve got plenty of local farms to keep us fed and happy. This weekend we picked blackberries at both Miller Farms and Westmoreland Berry Farm. Some of them even made it into our buckets! Miller Farms […]

Independence Day in Fredericksburg

I had the opportunity this year to experience July 4th in downtown Fredericksburg since we had our usual party (see 2009 and 2010) on Saturday. First up is the annual river raft race from Falmouth Waterfront Park to the City Dock sponsored by the Fredericksburg Jaycees. It was a beautiful day to float down the […]

Get out your calendars, because you’ll want to get down to LibertyTown Arts Workshop in Fredericksburg this Friday, April 1st. My piece above, brilliantly titled by my wife as “Meloncholy”, has been accepted to their annual “Feast for the Eyes” show. If a room full of art about food wasn’t enough, there will also be […]

Wounded EOD Warrior Polar Bear Plunge 2011

It’s tough to call anyone else brave when the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation is around, but anyone who would go for a swim in the Rappahannock on an early February morning is clearly braver than I. And a shocking number of people did on Saturday at the WEODW’s fourth annual Polar Bear Plunge at the […]

I went to the Rappahannock Independent Film Festival a few Saturdays ago with my with my festival day pass and my camera, just hoping to see some films and some friends, and probably grab a few photos. But when Ian checked me in at the front desk and asked if I could fill a gap […]

Family Portraits in Fredericksburg

I had the opportunity over the weekend to spend a beautiful afternoon at Fredericksburg’s Chatham Manor photographing Aaron and Mike’s family, including their two adorable children. The kids ranged from being good sports to hamming it up, I had a great time, and everyone enjoyed the unseasonably warm weather. I tried to pare down the […]
