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 🙂

Marjan and Andrew met me at Virginia’s State Arboretum (Blandy Experimental Farm) for their engagement session. This is becoming a new favorite as there is no permit required and the scenery is gorgeous. Not to mention May/June greenery is lovely and soft too which makes it perfect for portraits.

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 […]

I would say this wedding was a smashing success all around. Everyone had a wonderful time, especially the bride and groom. I’m going to miss working with these two for sure.

It was a short day full of Halloween details and beauty. And wrestling belts! This sweet couple got their dream wedding date and were a blast to work with. I was there only a couple of hours documenting their day, but we got a lot done in that time.

Surrounded by family and their bridal party, these two said I-do and feasted on all their favorite foods after their wedding. Can’t wait for next year’s celebration and looking forward to Chick-fil-a as a late night bite with them 🙂
