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. Although it sounds like a lot was going on, this beautiful Oak Ridge Estate wedding was one of the most organized and on point weddings I have had the privilege to attend. The team of creatives that worked behind the scenes to make this wedding run flawlessly surely did an amazing job. Many thanks to Makeup by Jessica for doing the girls’ makeup and Tresses by Tabatha for doing their hair. They all looked fabulous!

Saying that I could photograph a wedding at the Oak Ridge Estate every weekend is an understatement!
