The Boathouse At Sunday Park Wedding | Haley + Evan

I ask all my couples to fill out a questionnaire during their wedding planning process and one of my questions asks them to tell me more about their love story. This is one of my favorite stories that Haley told me… “Evan and I met in Kindergarten! We were in the same class and our Kindergarten teacher is actually going to officiate our wedding! I had a crush on him in Kindergarten, but he thought girls had cooties, so apparently my feelings were unrequited. We had crushes on each other off and on growing up (we “dated” a few summers in middle school), and after my family moved we stayed in touch by attending the same community pool each summer. We had our first jobs as lifeguards together there in summers during high school, and after a few years of the timing being wrong, we officially started dating junior year of high school. About 6 years later, after we both graduated from UVA and had been working in different cities for a year, we moved in together and adopted a dog, who we named Cora after the pool we went to growing up. After over 7 years of dating, we went hiking to a waterfall in upstate New York, and Evan proposed to me there by the edge of the water with only our sweet dog as a witness…it was beautiful. So depending on how you look at it, we are college, high school, and kindergarten sweethearts.”

How amazing is that!? I rarely get to photograph high school sweethearts, but these two are basically Kindergarten sweethearts!! Haley and Evan are so in love it makes me tear up just looking back through their wedding gallery. They are the kindest people with the sweetest families and they are truly so special. This wedding was one of my absolute favorites from beginning to end! Not only is The Boat House at Sunday Park one of my favorite venues, but because the couple made it 1000 times better than I could ever imagine. I’m so thankful they hired me and that I could be a part of their big day.  I’ll also be photographing Haley’s sister’s wedding this winter and I’m so excited to party with them all over again! 🙂

Congratulations Haley and Evan! Thank you for asking me to capture such a joyful day full of endless love and laughter!

Hollyfield Manor Wedding | Abby + Jacob

Abby and Jake’s wedding was absolutely stunning!! I’m in love with the southern charm vibes, all the pink (duhhh), the details, and of course seeing Abby and Jake tie the knot! Every detail, between the flowers, the dress, the ceremony, cake, and more, was so well thought-out and perfect. From the moment I arrived at the venue, I knew it was going to be an exciting day. The bridesmaids were having so much fun sipping on their champagne and we got the best pictures of them in their super cute getting ready outfits! The guys were also so much fun to work with- they were being hilarious and goofy the entire time, which makes for the best pictures. Abby and Jakes are always easy to take portraits of because they’re just so happy together. They aren’t afraid to be silly (like swinging into the trees during portrait time) and you can feel their love and passion when they look at each other. Their golden hour portraits are some of my favorites and I can’t wait for you to scroll through to see their wedding from beginning to end, well a majority of it at least!:)

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Adams, wishing you a lifetime of joy, laughter, and many blessings!!!! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day!
