An Intimate Langley Air Force Base Wedding
This couple fills my heart with SO much joy. Really!! All day I was bubbling over with excitement!! I've known Meredith since middle school, and we've walked through quite a few seasons of life together. I consider her to be one of those "forever friends" - someone with whom nothing changes with no matter how much time has passed between visits. As I've said before, THIS is one of the best parts of my job as a wedding photographer - serving dear friends on one of the most memorable days of their life.
A Summer Estate Wedding at Guildford Farm | Charlottesville, Virginia
I’m back (from a wonderful family vacation in Isle of Palms, SC!!) and ready to share Florence and Matt’s wedding day with you!! This wedding weekend was an especially fun one for me, as it was held in Charlottesville, VA on the same weekend of my college reunion! I attended the University of Virginia and was ecstatic to find out that the reunion and this Charlottesville wedding were going to be on the same weekend! Because my weekends are so often booked with weddings, it’s hard to coordinate attending events like this. This was seriously a God-timing thing!!!! I am always really excited for my couples’ weddings, and the added bonus of getting to see so many friends made this weekend one that was long awaited. I was not disappointed!!! Matt and Florence had a hot but gorgeous day for their wedding, and the night cooled down to a dreamy temperature so I could enjoy some time well spent with my friends.
A Whimsical + Romantic Wedding at The Williamsburg Winery | Williamsburg, Virginia
You know the advice, “marry your best friend”? Zack and Kristy did just that - these two are best friends of 18 years!!!! These two grew up in the same town on Long Island, meeting each other in the 8th grade. It all started when Zack asked Kristy to be his date to the middle school Valentine’s Day dance and she said yes. They started dating shortly after, but as with most middle school relationships, it lasted only a week (haha!). They were best friends throughout high school, college and beyond, becoming a part of each other's families. Other relationships came and went and 5 years ago, they started dating (again!). No one was surprised - it was meant to be!!
A Coastal Spring Wedding at the Oyster Farm at Kings Creek | Cape Charles, Virginia
Wedding season is off to a wonderful start here on the East Coast!! Last Saturday was an incredibly fun and joyful celebration of two friends of mine in Cape Charles, Virginia, on the most perfect day the entire state had seen in months! I flew back from Hawaii the week before the wedding and started panicking when I landed to 37 degrees. Why was it still so cold? How was I going to survive!? It’s April! The weather stayed pretty freezing that whole first week, and I don’t think I left my house but a handful of times. However, in typical Virginia fashion, the weather was predicted to jump 40 degrees at the end of the week, and the forecasters kept saying that Saturday was going to be the warmest day of the month. Thankfully, they were right! With sunny skies and perfect 75 degree weather, Carly and Reid had the most incredible day for their wedding at The Oyster Farm at Kings Creek. I honestly felt like I was still in Hawaii! The day ended with one of those sunsets that you usually only see in pictures. I honestly don’t know if I’ll ever be able to top the portraits we got!!! You don’t want to miss those!
An Intimate and Elegant Winter Wedding at the Cavalier Golf and Yacht Club | Virginia Beach, VA
I couldn’t imagine a better way to close out my 2017 wedding season than to play a small part in the wedding day of two such incredible friends. I’ve known Mason and Alex for years (since they started dating, actually!) and being able to see them promise forever to each other in front of their family and closest friends was the most beautiful thing to witness. They met at Bayville Golf Club almost four years ago and started dating shortly after. Fast forward to this fall, where for their engagement, Mason took her back where it all started and got on one knee on the 18th hole. He choked up as he proposed and she said yes (and I got to hide in the bushes!!)
