Alina-Thomas-Photography-2Where do I even start? I absolutely ADORE these two! We’ve known them for less than a year, yet it feels like we’ve known them forever! I am so thankful for getting the chance to meet Addison and Chad and the honor of being part of their wedding day. Ever since their engagement session in Bedford, Virginia, we knew that there was something special about them and our personalities just connected. Addison and I may or may not have planned a double date without asking the husbands first. Haha! They must have enjoyed it too since only 2 weeks after their wedding we hung out again.

bride and groomIt is always exciting to see where the beautiful weddings I get to photograph take me. For Sarah and Brian’s wedding, I traveled to Arrington, Virginia to one of the most breathtaking wedding venues I have ever seen. This was my first time photographing at the Oak Ridge Estate, and man do I want to go back! It was beyond exciting to help my friend Sherry, of Sherry Conrad Photography, shoot this exquisite wedding. Sherry asked me to shoot alongside her at Sara and Brian’s wedding as a sixteen person bridal party could definitely use two photographers. View full post »

snow couple session at sierra vistaAfter a full week of snow, we got even more snow on Saturday. I’ve been wanting to photograph a bride and groom at Sierra Vista in the snow for a while now, and when I saw that it started snowing on Saturday, I immediately texted Chelsey and together we planned a really quick photoshoot. I loved her Pnina Tornai wedding dress ever since I saw her wearing it at her wedding. I could not hide my excitement when she texted me about doing this session together! Although we expected it to be really cold outside, it actually wasn’t that bad when we arrived at Sierra Vista in Bedford, VA. View full post »

lynchburg-wedding-photographer-trivium1The Trivium is an exquisite wedding venue located in Forest, Virginia where Alyssa and Daniel chose to celebrate their dream wedding. From the beautiful outdoor ceremony to the extravagant ball room reception, their big day was filled with laughter and happiness. It was in 2003 that Alyssa moved to Lynchburg, Virginia from North Carolina and met Daniel. Although they attended the same school, worked in the same veterinary office, and even went to the prom with mutual friends as dates, they did not begin dating until these same friends kept telling them how “cute” they would be together.

lynchburg-wedding-photographer-alina-thomas01We had the honor of being asked to do this sweet couple’s wedding photography and loved every minute of it. We have known Jesse for many years and got acquainted with Chelsea after they began their relationship. The wedding was lovely and incorporated so many things that the couple holds dear to them, such as family. Chelsea has a large family and her siblings sang for the couple at their ceremony. Her dad also did the service and melted the hearts of the audience with his passion for his daughter and this new journey in her life. It was great seeing the love Jesse’s dad has for him in being there before the wedding making sure everything was taken care of. View full post »

Lynchburg-Wedding-Photographer1When Christa and Israel asked me to photograph their wedding, I knew it was going to be a blast. What made this wedding stand-out from others was the unity within the family. It was great to see such closeness between siblings. One unique item that caught my eye was the bouquet that Christa’s mom hand-made for her. It was exquisite in detail and was a great display piece. To be honest, I do not know if the girls who lined up to catch it during the reception were trying to be “next” in getting married or just wanted a closer look. Not only was the bouquet, as well as the other decorations gorgeous, but the venue suited the couple perfectly. View full post »

After-Wedding-Session (1)This after-wedding session for Ruben and Patricia took place in the beautiful landscapes of Oradea, Romania. This couple was easy to work with and listened to every piece of advice we gave them for posing. The scenery in this session is absolutely gorgeous and the weather was as well. Something that really made the photo shoot distinct was Patricia wearing a red sweater with her wedding dress. The added color really made the images pop. Ruben was very kind-hearted and made sure that he did everything he could to help his wife during the shoot, from hanging decorations to making sure her dress was not getting dirty. We wish this happy couple many more years of laughter and love! View full post »

DoubleTree-by-Hilton-Oradea-Wedding001This after wedding session for Eliza and Florin took place at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Oradea Romania. The hotel lounge, dining area, etc. were extravagant and really made the photo shoot come to life. It is the perfect location for any form of event and exceeds the needs of its guests.

Eliza is a floral designer while Florin owns a blueberry farm. Eliza was very detailed in what she wanted and had a lot of great ideas. If you didn’t already notice, you will see in the pictures that her dress has blue incorporated throughout it. This was her own design as she had her dress customized. It was very beautiful and having matched Florin’s bowtie, gave the session a unique elegance. View full post »
