Wow, photographing Brittany and Tyler at Virginia Military Institute was quite an honor! The rich history and stately architecture was the perfect backdrop for this beautiful couple's engagement shoot! We even were able to participate in the lowering of the flag - very moving.
What do you do when you want to have a cherry blossom engagement shoot and the weather and timing of the blossoms is unpredictable?? You shoot in a pop of cherry blossom bar of course! With over 90,000 cherry blossoms as a canopy and 1400 butterflies, some with flapping wings even, The Drink Company's Cherry Blossom Pop-Up Bar was the perfect spot for Annie and Elliot to celebrate their sweet engagement!
The minute I met Kelsey and Spencer, I knew that I would love them! SO in love, so romantic, so sweet together! I hardly had to direct them on how to pose, they just naturally went into amazing romantic poses, haha. We had a wonderful couple of hours together amongst the peach trees and the vineyard. I have loved being a part of their lives for their wedding journey!!
Naomi,Taylor and I met on a rainy day at Maymont Park in Richmond VA, but we did not let the rain put a damper on things! We just took pictures with a pretty white umbrella in the rain! I loved how they both just went with it and didn’t let the rain upset them one little bit.:) They were so much fun to work with! They had planned a winter wedding at The Columns at Six Penny Farm and the day before the wedding it snowed! Yay!! It was sooo cold that day - but again that didn’t bother them a bit - so easy going! Naomi was the definition of elegance in her princess gown with her beautiful hair, veil and on my, those beautiful eyes!! The venue had a wonderful bridal suite with lots of natural light - so being inside because of the cold was no problem. Her beautiful, fresh colors of deep pink and green and so many candles, brightened up the cold winter day. Everything from the flowers to the table decor to the food and music was so wonderfully done! Naomi was a professional ballerina and watching her dance with her father was like watching a dream. She spun and spun and spun with such elegance and grace in her sparkling ballerina shoes on her father’s finger - it was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen!! The day with Naomi and Taylor was an absolute honor to be a part of!!
What a privilege to photograph Amy and Greg in this beautiful setting at Sierra Vista in Forest, VA! The deep love between them shone through so beautifully! They were absolutely perfect models for this amazing styled shoot in the woods and fields of this gorgeous venue!! From the stunning bride to the handsome groom , to the elegant decor and beautiful cake - this shoot could not have been more beautiful!
