Melissa and Joshua were the rays of sunshine we needed, after a very wet start to June!  Our small community was heavily impacted by recent flooding, but we cleaned up in a hurry because we knew a wonderful wedding couple was on their way to us! Melissa and Joshua started off our summer wedding season in the most delightful way – and as we got to know them, we learned they are dog lovers – with two sweet fur “children” of their own – so of course we loved them even more!  Melissa had her hair and make up done at the Bristles salon in nearby Charlottesville, and came in looking ready for a magazine cover – she was simply a stunning bride!  We LOVED their wedding details – some of which were beautiful (those shoes!!!  that veil!!!) and some were fun and playful (Joshua’s brand new wedding Converse and the special delivery note for his bride, that he slipped under the door of her dressing suite!!!).  Mother nature even seemed to smile on us, and stopped the rain so we could enjoy an outdoor wedding ceremony and a trek around the grounds for some gorgeous photos (these two were naturals!!!)  The wedding fun isn’t over yet either, these two newlyweds will be celebrating again at a special  reception planned by our brides mom,  and we hope all the guests will love seeing this little sneak peek from an absolutely wonderful day!

My very favorite part of this job is getting to be in the presence of radiant happiness.  I’ve always been a little bit too empathetic…I absorb the feelings of those around me whether I want to or not.  But on days like this one…days like Laura and Bill’s wedding day, the feeling of being in […]

Lisa and Brian were wedding guests at the Golden Horseshoe Inn waaaay back in 2014.  Somewhere in the back of their minds, they tucked us away as a sweet spot to renew their vows when the time came to celebrate a milestone anniversary.  And luckily for us, their beautiful 10 year anniversary vow renewal ceremony […]

One of the unexpected gifts of the current pandemic has been the gift of more time!  I just love photographing engagement sessions, but my busy wedding schedule means they can be really hard to fit in.  Which is why I had just the best time ever roaming through the mountains with Allison and Vince.  A […]
