Richmond Engagement Session | Christa + Rob

Christa and Rob are without a doubt one of my favorite couples. They are joyful, silly, fun, and madly in love with each other. Their cuteness is overwhelming and their love for each other makes my heart so happy! Their engagement session last Fall was absolutely stunning. We started at the VA State Capitol with soft colors and formal outfits. Then we made our way to Belle Isle while they changed into the most perfect Fall outfits! The shoot was complete with golden sunshine over the river and a colorful sunset while walking over the bridge. It was a beautiful evening for two beautiful souls. I can’t wait to share their recent wedding pictures based in Richmond with a church ceremony and Monument Avenue portraits!

A Romantic Virginia Beach Couple’s Session | Lindsey + Peyton

I have to say, I think this is probably one of my favorite couples sessions, even if it’s a little throw back. Everything about Lindsey and Peyton’s shoot at the beach was beyond dreamy, steamy, and romantic. The lighting was perfect, the ocean was calm, plus these two were happy to climb a few rocks and get their feet wet. Lindsey’s eyes pop the most beautiful bright blue and the dress was a perfect choice, plus I just love how much taller Peyton is than Lindsey because it always puts them in a natural pose that just looks so cute! Between their chemistry, the way they look at each other, and the entire setting overall… I’m smitten over every picture!

These two got engaged last Fall and these were taken just a few months before while I was visiting Virginia Beach. After knowing this sweet couple for such a long time, I was thrilled to see them get engaged and I am so excited to be the one to capture their wedding day THIS WEEKEND!!!! It’s going to be such a special day, I can’t wait to see Lindsey as a stunning bride and her handsome groom all dressed up!

A Charming Virginia Plantation Wedding | Hannah + Evan

Hannah and Evan tied the knot on June 8th at Bonneville Farm, where Hannah’s Dad owns land. Their wedding was a mix of southern charm and a classy backyard wedding! I loved how unique everything was, from the bride’s custom gown, to the romantic carriage ride, a touching moment between the bride and her sweet nieces, and so much more! It may have rained half the day, but it cleared up just in time for a beautiful ceremony, fun pictures, and an awesome reception!

One of my favorite moments of the day was in the beginning when Hannah gave her nieces a gift. She actually illustrated, published, and printed her own book called “Girls Can Drive Tractors” as a reminder that girls can do anything! How special is that!? You can even buy your own copy through this link HERE! I just love that she went out of her way to create something so meaningful for these girls and shared it with them on her wedding day.

As the ceremony was approaching, the rain completely cleared and Hannah and her dad rode in the horse carriage all the way down the long gravel driveway to stop right in front of aisle. Evan and everyone else saw Hannah for the first time as she got out of the carriage and it was the greatest bridal entrance ever. The family’s adorable fluffy dogs seemed to also want to walk her down the aisle too- it was so cute! After a perfect ceremony, everyone was ready to have some fun and that’s exactly what they did. I love how they setup the pretty reception outside in the front yard with an awesome outdoor bar and a great band! Everything turned out amazing and every detail was so fitting to Hannah and Evan’s style.

After learning more about these two during the speeches, it was obvious how loved they are and how perfect they are for each other. I loved this wedding day and working with such a wonderful couple. Thank you Hannah and Evan for allowing me to be a part of your special day and congratulations!!!

Amber Grove Wedding | Sarah + Matthew

Sarah and Matthew are MARRIED!!! They had the most beautiful wedding at Amber Grove and every detail was absolutely perfect! Their day was filled with so much love, happy tears, and laughter, I was so thankful to be a small part in it. I have to say, I think my favorite part was when they both went back to back to pray before the ceremony. I love when my bride and grooms want to find time for special moments like that in between the rushing around pre-ceremony. It’s so easy to get caught up in a timeline, to get all the pictures done on your list, or get frustrated if plans change because of the rain, but Sarah and Matthew kept their focus on the real meaning of their wedding day. I loved their wedding for so many reasons, as you can see from all the prettiness in the photos below, but most of all because the bride and groom were just SO ready to become husband and wife already!! Wishing these two a lifetime of joy and unconditional love!
