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!

They all wanted to shotgun together- Abby may or may not have faked it, haha!
Loved their reception setup!
I love when couples actually do the cake smash!!
Time for golden hour portraits!
Jake pushed Abby and she flew right into the trees, haha!
These two are so funny, I love that they did this!
Yes, that’s a fishing pole- he actually just wanted to fish after this, haha!

A Styled Holiday Wedding

Christmas is only a few days away and I have been saving this stunning, styled holiday wedding for this very moment! I wanted to create an inspiring, romantic, whimsy, Christmas themed wedding styled shoot for a few reasons: One being that I am obsessed with all things Christmas…so duh! Two is that I haven’t been able to let my creativity flow in the past few months because I’ve been so busy sticking to my normal sessions and weddings. I wanted to have some fun with local “friendors” (vendors) and play around with ideas! And lastly, because I wanted to share some winter wedding inspiration for those brides getting married next holiday season. You will definitely see some awesome ideas throughout the blog- you might even start drooling over the portraits! 😉

Between the breathtaking ceremony site, the sweater design in the cake, the candy cane accents, the romantic setting at the sweetheart table, and this BEAUTIFUL couple (who are totally engaged, btw!), this shoot is one for the books! I’m not even being dramatic when I say that it gets better and better and better with each scroll until you hit the end and then you’ll just be angry that it’s over! These vendors knocked it out of the park and I can’t wait for you to check it out!

Barns of Kanak Wedding |Madison + Chris Part 1

It’s all in the details, friends. The first thing I do after arriving and greeting my bride at a wedding is start with the details. I ask all of my brides to prepare an area dedicated to everything they want to be included in their detail pictures. This can include rings, dresses, invitations, extra flowers, garters, jewelry, family heirlooms, the veil, shoes, bouquets, perfume, boutonnieres, vows, really anything that has special meaning to their wedding day. I take pictures of those details, then I continue to capture details throughout the wedding day and around the venue. I can’t wait for you to see the amazing floral work by Rose Avenue Floral Design from the bouquet, to the decor, to the altar, and more!

Madison and Chris had the most beautiful wedding and I am so excited to share the details for now(and the portraits in another blog). Every little detail that went into this wedding is meaningful and so carefully thought out. I love sharing these types of pictures and hope another bride can find some inspiration in them for their future wedding!

Cherry Blossom Maternity Session | RVA

WOW. This maternity session was actually the best thing ever. A few weeks ago, Cherry Blossoms were unexpectedly in full bloom at Brown’s Island and my flower-loving heart was SO HAPPY! We had an awesome session walking around the area and catching up! Ashley and I went to high school together, so it was so nice to catch up and meet each other’s husbands! I love reconnecting with people I knew from my hometown and seeing them in such a joyful, new stage of life. Ashley was glowing throughout her session with her husband by her side and a sweet little blessing growing inside her. Starting a family is the most special time there is and I am so happy I could capture that for them. About one week (crazy, I know) after our session, Ashley and Jonathon welcomed their beautiful baby girl into the world! Congratulations to the O’Neal family, I know that little cutie is SO loved already!

Prepare yourself for lots and lots and lots of pretty, sunshine-filled, flowery, adorable, romantic, fun pictures! 🙂 I hope you keep scrolling to the end because you do not want to miss a moment of this session!!!
