Hawk’s Nest Engagement/ Hannah & Gabe / Tabitha Stover Photography

Hannah and Gabe are such a sweet couple full of so much love!  I was so excited when they told me they wanted to do their engagement session at Hawk’s Nest because it is such a beautiful place! I fell in love with their story from the start! I asked them how they met and Gabe said Hannah’s grandpa arranged the meeting which was unusual in itself for her grandpa,  and when it was time to show Hannah chickened out and didn’t show up! She eventually did meet him and they hit it off! Gabe did the sweetest surprise proposal at this exact spot. His family accompanied them for what seemed like a regular day off site seeing. They asked Hannah to check out a Hawk across the Gorge and when she looked through the viewfinder he dropped to one knee!  It poured the rain before and after the shoot, but Hannah and Gabe stuck it out and I’m so glad they put up with the weather because they were a joy to shoot!

Gritts Farm Pumpkin Patch Session WV/ Tabitha Stover Photography

I have been wanting to do a Pumpkin Patch Photo session for so long! I love fall and  when Sarah asked me to  capture Claire’s quest to find the perfect pumpkin I was so excited! We went to Gritts Fall Fun Farm’s Pumpkin patch and it was the perfect place to hunt for the perfect pumpkin! If you haven’t checked out the fall fun farm you should! They have so many pumpkins and Claire was ready to take them all home! I had a blast trying to keep up with Claire and Sarah.  Claire has the best personality and couldn’t be cuter. I love the joy that goes along with finding the perfect pumpkin! I loved the snuggly moments and so much  mommy and daughter love! I would document families playing on farms everyday if I could! I love capturing these real moments! I also have to take a moment to talk about how Claire’s boots are ridiculously adorable. Thanks  Claire and Sarah for such a fun session!

Maylon House Wedding/ Milton, WV/ Tabitha Stover Photography

“ It doesn’t matter where I am; I am yours” That sums up this sweet couple. Noemi and Nate went to high school together. Noemi was a foreign exchange student and they became high school sweet hearts! Their love continued to grow when Noemi came back to the U.S to study at Marshall University. Both are pre med students at Marshall. I am amazed that they planned such a beautiful wedding with everything on their plates, but that just shows their determination and love! It was beautiful seeing two different families from different cultures’ come together and celebrate this love. I loved the little details that brought their cultures together like the cupcakes with flags. The Maylon House was the perfect setting for this intimate wedding with this gorgeous couple! Everything was beautiful! I loved the personalized bells that every guest received. Everytime the bells were ringed the couple had to kiss! I can’t get over how stunning Noemi was and that dress and veil!

New River Gorge Wedding/ Daniel Vineyards, WV/ Karrah & Brian/ Tabitha Stover Photography

“No Church, No aisles, no chairs…, just two crazy people on the rim of the Gorge” their wedding ceremony was simple and beautiful! Honoring their love infront of close family and friends at the edge of the gorge.
The New River Gorge is full of so many breath taking beautiful places making it the perfect setting for this outdoorsy adventuresome  couple’s wedding! Karrah and Brian’s love story started in the Gorge! Out of all the beautiful places to meet and fall for each other as fate would have it they first met in Charlie’s pub. Its well known for its romantic atmoshere, ha. Karrah had finished up a day of zipplinging and Brian had finished up a day on kayaking and both were gathering with friends at Charlies. Wrong numbers were exchanged, and Brian still says it was the best mistake he has ever made because it led him to her. They really fell for each other with their shared love of the outdoors and adventure!  I have known Karrah and Brain for a while and they are two of the sweetest people I know. When you see them together you know they were made for each other.  The ceremony took place in the New River Gorge Preserve on the rim of the New River where the couple was surrounded by close family and friends followed by a reception at Daniel vineyards where the couple was greeted by more loved ones who celebrated their love into the  evening! The day was perfect even with a few bumps like no power at the reception venue. Their  love shined on and the candles just added to the romantic atmosphere in a beautiful setting with a gorgeous couple! Thank you for letting me capture your big day along with Kaylyn Cole! Wishing you  all a life full of happiness together, I can’t wait to see what adventures await for you to in the future!

WV State Capital Wedding/ Mikaela & Jordan/ Tabitha Stover Photography

I loved this couple as soon as we met at their engagement session last fall at Concord University. Mikaela and Jordan were so warm, and so sweet, I loved working with them!  Jordan supportively backs up Mikaela confidently and you can see the spark in Mikaela’s eyes as soon as Jordan is mentioned. They are adorable!  They are the kind of couple that are stronger together and they lift up others as a team.  I look forward to what the future holds for this couple. A Memorial weekend red, white, and blue affair at the West Virginia  State Capital was the perfect setting for their big day!

When Mikaela  first told me she had a bridal party of 20 people I have to admit I was a little nervous because I had never photographed a bridal party so big before. Some people are lucky to count on a couple of great friends, but I was truly blown away at the love surrounding Mikaela and Jordan! Every person that surrounded them on this beautiful day needed to be there, the way that each member of the  bridal party spoke of them speaks to how awesome of a couple they truly are! So much love. There were signs of their sorority and fraternity backgrounds throughout the day, but it was most noticeably seen in the strong bond of sisterhood and brotherhood I witnessed throughout the day! There were a few moments of tears, but mostly joy and  lots of laughter. I had a blast working with such a fun group of people that had me smiling all day! Mikaela never let the early hiccups of the day  phase her, she was  just happy to  be marrying the  man of her  dreams! Everything fell into place for the perfect wedding down to the fairytale ending with an amazing sparkler exit ending  with a kiss between best friends!

Wishing you a happily ever after and excited to see what the future holds for you both! Thank you for letting me capture such a beautiful day!

Farm Photo Session With Baby Goats, New River Gorge WV

My husband and I have always dreamt of having a small farm and homestead! Neither of us grew up on a farm and we are  both pretty clueless about farming, but it was a calling our hearts had. We started out with a couple chickens, the gateway farm animal. Then it was a friend that had pigs that were looking for a forever home, then it was what’s a couple of goats and so on. We envisioned our little family living off the grid and growing our own food, making fresh cheeses and living the farm life. Our farm probably isn’t the picturesque farm you have in your head when you think of a farm, but to us its perfect and we  are where we want to be. Our patchwork fence shows the constant battle to keep our goats in each mending telling a story.   There is a crooked chicken coop that is made with love.  I have learned a lot about farming on our adventures so far. Sometimes when we think we don’t have what it takes to be farmers we get to witness magical moments that remind us why we love it so much! Seeing our sweet Does give birth and witnessing new life upclose is incredible! I am so thankful to be raising our little one on the farm!   We are really lucky to have the support system we do with local farmers helping us on our adventures into farming! We have awesome goat mentors that have held our hands along the way and answered our crazy questions at all hours. Shout out to Shelley and Don Hutcheson at Twiggity farm for being there for us! Watching Willow see the baby goats for the first time was magical! These are  the kind of sweet moments I love capturing!

Wildflower Maternity Photo Session WV

I’ve always dreamed of doing a gorgeous maternity shoot in a field of wildflowers as far as you can see! One small problem, I couldn’t find a huge field of wildflowers, but I did find a small patch by an  intersection. I am so grateful that Rachael and Dustin were so willing to go for my crazy shenanigans!  They were so fun to shoot, both glowing with joy! You can see the love when they look at each other. Racheal was stunning with the perfect baby bump and I’m obsessed with her dress!wildflower maternity wv
