Rebecca and William | Midland, VA Wedding

I am so excited to share these photos from William and Rebecca’s wedding! The day was absolutely beautiful, and they did such a great job making this wedding personal. It all took place on Rebecca’s family farm. They incorporated sheet music as decor (William is a music teacher and in a bluegrass band), yellow and blue was sprinkled all throughout the tent, and they even had hot air balloon rides! They arrived to their reception in an antique yellow car, and left in an airplane. It was incredible! I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I did. And a special thank you to my friend Ali for her photos of William and the outside of the church!

Married!

Thank you Rebecca and William! I wish you a lifetime of happiness!

Adam and Karen | 1757 Golf Club Wedding, Dulles, VA

I have been SO excited to share this wedding! Karen and Adam’s wedding day was absolutely beautiful. Karen did such an amazing job planning every single detail. Everyone was having a blast, and I love how much fun Karen and Adam have as a couple as well. They really made my job so easy! The couple exchanged vows at the Baptist Church in Haymarket, Va and held their reception at 1757 Golf Club. It was gorgeous!

Love Karen’s reception dress!
Last one!
Thank you Karen and Adam! xo

Becki and Jacob | Burke, VA Wedding

Becki and Jacob are so wonderful! I had such a great time photographing their wedding day. These two had dated for six years, so it was truly beautiful watching them make such a serious commitment to one another! They wrote their vows, laughed with friends, and held the ceremony and reception at their hometown church. It could not have been a more beautiful day!

Last minute touches with the help of her bridesmaids! I loved this moment when all of her girls surrounded her to make sure she was good to go. :)

Married!

beautiful!

first dance…

Congrats Becki and Jacob! Good luck in Alabama!

Sophia and Josh | Upperville, VA

Sophia and Josh are two of the most genuine people I’ve ever met! Being a part of their wedding was truly an honor. The weather could not have been more beautiful and the grounds at Trinity Episcopal Church are breathtaking. Here are a few of my favorite images from their May wedding!

Sophia and Josh decided not to see each other before the ceremony, but they did touch!

Photography wasn’t allowed during the ceremony, but this was right after they were announced!

Their reception was held at The Blackthorne Inn, and it was so beautiful!

The reception was full of sweet moments!

Last one!

Thank you Sophia and Josh! I wish you a lifetime of happiness!

Melanie and Adam | Bluemont Vineyard Wedding, Bluemont, VA

I really don’t have enough kind words to say about this couple. Melanie, Adam, and I connected instantly and I had been looking forward to their wedding all season. This was my last one of the year, so I feel that it was a perfect one to end with. :)

Melanie got ready at a friends home and was surrounded by her girls, champagne, and music. I loved the energy I could feel in that house. Melanie was so calm, yet so happy. It seemed as if she was just trying to take in everything that was happening. We headed to Bluemont Vineyard for their ceremony and reception, which happens to be one of my favorite venues! Melanie told me on their engagement session that she really wanted to incorporate fun details, and that she did! I was so impressed with what her and Adam had made.

When Adam arrived I gave him a hug. He instantly asked me, “How is she doing? Is she okay?” Their love is so genuine. My hope is that I was able to capture it.

Thank you Melanie and Adam! I wish you nothing but the best! Thank you for letting wedding season end so wonderfully! xoxo

I LOVE this one of Melanie!
Melanie and Adam did a, “First Look!” It was incredible…and it gave us so much more time for photos!
One of my absolute favorites!

Married!

So this photo was actually a mistake…I was just checking my light! I love the feel of it!

And then came the reception!

Adam, Melanie, and their guests were so much fun!
Melanie brought these amazing lanterns and there happened to be the most gorgeous moon out!
Last one!
Melanie and Adam, thank you, thank you. From the bottom of my heart!

Lindsey and Brandon | Gainesville, VA Wedding

Lindsey and Brandon may be one of the sweetest couples I’ve met. As individuals, but even more so as a unit. They started dating in 8th grade! In fact, Brandon used the cologne that Lindsey gave to him in 8th grade…Crazy! Lindsey and Brandon are fun and laid back. Nothing made that more apparent then the fact it rained, and snowed, on their wedding day. Neither one minded. This didn’t phase them, they were in love. They were happy. They wanted nothing more than to get married, so the rain became more of a good luck charm. Even though I feel this couple doesn’t need much luck. They grew up together, so I’m sure they’ve overcome many obstacles, but it was great to witness them starting a new chapter in a book that they have been writing together for years. Brandon and Lindsey tied the knot at Heritage Hunt Country Club, and it was a beautiful event!

Lindsey and Brandon, I feel so honored that I was able to capture your special day. I wish you a lifetime of happiness…and dancing! You two cracked me up! :)

Lindsey, you are beautiful!

Cutie!

With Brandon being a baseball player, it would only make sense for the ring bearer to carry the rings on with a ball and glove! How handsome is he!?

Brandon and Lindsey exchanged letters before the ceremony. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room.

Married!

The speeches were great!

The sky opened up at the very end of the day, so I snuck the couple away for a few…

Last one!

Congrats Lindsey and Brandon! Thank you so much!

Laurie and Anthony | Vint Hill Wedding

Laurie and Anthony booked me a long time ago, so I was so excited when their wedding day finally arrived! The leaves were finally starting to change and the atmosphere was so beautiful. Laurie and Anthony did a “first look” so we were able to do a bunch of photos before their ceremony. I love seeing the moment a bride and groom share when they see each other for the first time, but what I love most of all is that it doesn’t seem to alter the moment they have when the bride walks down the aisle. Laurie did a wonderful job of literally putting together her entire wedding! Instead of a honeymoon, Laurie and Anthony bought a house. So, I’m excited for them to have some photos to hang on their walls! 

I love when a couple chooses to do a “first look!”

This wedding party cracked me up!

LOVE these last three!

Congrats Laurie and Anthony! I hope you’re enjoying your new home!

Jake and Taunya | Bluemont Vineyards, Bluemont, VA

Fall is finally here! I love fall for so many reasons, but I especially LOVE fall weddings! Jake and Taunya exchanged vows at Bluemont Vineyards in Bluemont, VA. It was absolutely beautiful. The property was breathtaking and I couldn’t imagine a more beautiful place for this beautiful couple to get married. This was my first time at the vineyard and I couldn’t get over the atmosphere, not only outside, but inside. Jake and Taunya thank you so much for letting me be a part of your special day! I wish you nothing but the best!

Last one!
Thank you guys!

Jennifer and Ray | Arlington, VA Wedding

Jennifer and Ray are such a sweet couple! I had the pleasure of capturing their wedding day in Arlington, VA on the rooftop of Eventide Restaurant. It was a very small affair, and I loved how Jennifer and Ray were just surrounded by close family and friends, including Ray’s twin boys! Here’s a few of my favorites from the day!

Ray and Jennifer gave the boys special necklaces that represented them becoming a family and taking care of one another. It was the sweetest thing ever!

They each made vows to the boys…

Eventide is full of original mirrors, I just had to use them!

We ended Jennifer and Ray’s day at the place where their relationship started, Zola Wine & Kitchen.

Last one!

Thank you guys! I hope you enjoyed your honeymoon at disney world!

Jane and Terry | Fredrick, MD Wedding

Jane and Terry are such a sweet couple. Their entire day was full of love and family and friends. When Jane booked me and informed me that her wedding was at Milton Ridge I couldn’t have been more excited! It is such a cute, intimate venue. The atmosphere is really cozy, with the chapel, reception hall, and bridal suite all in walking distance on the property.

Jane and Terry, thank you! I enjoyed your lovely wedding so much! Jane, I can’t wait to do your bridal session in the next few weeks. So, stay tuned…

Her something blue was her grandmother’s ring…

 I had a blast! Thank you, Jane and Terry!
