night time photos of bride and groomOn Saturday, I had the incredible privilege of photographing Maria and James’ wedding at Sorella Farms in Evington, Virginia. They didn’t let a small storm get in the way of celebrating one of the most important days in their lives. Maria remained calm and composed throughout the entire day, even though the outdoor ceremony she had planned for almost 2 years had to be moved inside due to the rain. The rustic wedding barn at Sorella Farms made for a beautiful indoor ceremony.

Some of Maria’s family flew in from Peru and even brought a little surprise for the bride and groom. They put together a beautiful dance from each region of Peru and did an outstanding job with the choreography.  View full post »

Although it was supposed to rain the whole day, it stopped just in time for their ceremony. What I love about Glencliff Manor is that no matter what the weather is like, they are always prepared. If you are looking for a wedding venue for your wedding, make sure to read the interview we did with them to find out more about Glencliff Manor.

When I received the email that Tyler had popped the question, we began meticulously planning all the details from the engagement pictures, to the wedding day!

marriedWhat a great experience it was to shoot at Walker’s Overlook in Maryland for the first time this past Saturday! From the moment we arrived we fell in love with this beautiful venue. When we woke up that morning and looked through our hotel window, we realized that it had rained the night before. By the time we left the hotel to head to the Walker’s Overlook, the sky had cleared and the sun had come out. Let me just tell you, this day could not have been more perfect for Tricia and Jeremiah’s outdoor wedding. View full post »

sierra vista wedding bedford vaThis beautiful Sierra Vista wedding was one of a kind! Mindy and Derek’s wedding was special in so many ways: from the spectacular ceremony view featuring the Blue Ridge Mountains in the background, to the ceremony itself, everything was nothing short of perfection! Dr. Brooks, Mindy’s dad, officiated the ceremony and it was the most beautiful service I have witnessed! I even got teary eyes, so it’s not a secret anymore that I cry at weddings. It was truly a privilege to be a part of this beautiful wedding and I love how welcoming the Brooks family made us feel throughout the entire day. View full post »

west manor estate brideWest Manor Estate opened their doors to celebrate Lauren and Wayne’s wedding this past Saturday in Forest, Virginia. Their day was filled with both laughter and tears of joy as the two art students became husband and wife. They first met at Radford University in 2009 during their drawing class, and almost 6 years later, one of their professors from art school performed a unity “paint” ceremony and a special reading at their beautiful West Manor Estate wedding. It was beyond beautiful! Words cannot describe how well everything fell into place at Lauren and Wayne’s wedding. Not even the rain stopped the two from having a smile across their faces the entire day. View full post »

wedding day at sorella farmsI’ve been waiting to photograph a wedding at Sorella Farms for a while now, and when Sallie told me she had chosen Sorella as her wedding venue, I could hardly contain my excitement! From the rustic reception barn, to the outdoor ceremony, Sallie and Chris’ wedding was one for the record books. Not even the rain stopped these two from enjoying their day to it’s fullest. The full rainbow that followed shortly after the rain left everyone  in awe over it’s beautiful colors. View full post »
