My second big wedding of 2021!!! Things are opening back up and FINALLY weddings are happening. Jessica and Andrew (I have a lot of Andrew’s this year) pledged forever at Whitehall Estate in Bluemont, Virginia. For late May, though, the weather wasn’t that pleasant, but we made it work! I was so so thankful we were able to complete all formal portraits outside before the ceremony. Portraits – the bride explained – were the most important to her and the thing she was looking forward to the most on her wedding day.

We all held our breath when the forecast for this week did not look promising weather-wise, but sure enough, the sky gods smiled upon us and we were blessed with some soft light for their engagement session.

This couple wanted something rustic and outdoors for their engagement session, I recommended 48 Fields to them as it was a good location that could provide mountains and greenery. Also, since I photograph at this venue so much, I knew all the good spots 🙂

Jasmine and Andrew decided not to reschedule again because Jasmine found out earlier this year they were pregnant with their first child. They used their wedding reception as a gender reveal! How awesome was that?! The expressions were priceless!!

And finally, after portraits, 3 outfit changes on Jasmine’s end, and dinner the couple were off to the after-party through a sparkler exit.

One theme that prominent throughout the day was family. Carolina and Cesar’s wedding was a celebration of themselves and the completion of their family. Since Carolina was raised by her grandmother, she asked if she could do a first look with her grandmother. This was a first for me, but I think brides who are close to their grandmothers should do this more often.

Not only was I able to photograph the colors properly, but the added brightness also allowed these images to be very on-brand as well. I could have gone the natural light method for photographing, but preserving the contrast of the flowers was deeply important to my client. Reds and pinks – when overexposed (AKA light and airy) can wash out the detail. Whites are hard to photograph as well for this reason.

While I absolutely love what I do, sometimes I enjoy photographing for myself.  What I mean by this is that I enjoy photographing beautiful things just to photograph them. Wedding days are lovely, filled with emotions, gorgeous details, and love….but I need time to focus (literally) on learning new skills and trying new techniques with […]

Brittany and Ryan met many moons ago when they were just littles. Over the years, the grew close together and decided on forever. When this couple booked me, we hoped things would be different as they originally had 200 guests invited. They made the decision to pair down and go forward with their original wedding date.

Today marked my third “big” wedding of 2020! And I honestly felt like I was a new photographer all over again. Instead of a consolidated day, I had another 8-hour day! It felt foreign at first, but I quickly got into the groove. Right after COVID came, I received an email from this couple’s wedding […]

Their April wedding then turned into a September date and then finally May of 2021. BUT, they decided to get married with a select number of friends and family and planned for a later celebration because they couldn’t wait. And I didn’t blame them one bit. I actually encouraged this from the get-go.

Sticking to their second date – and their ceremony venue – Jasmine and Andrew said I-do in Jasmine’s childhood church.
