What a joy to witness Meredith and Clay’s wedding day in Richmond, Virginia!  I’ve been excited for their big day since we met for their engagement photos in Amherst, VA.  From the puppy to the love to the fun artwork at VMFA the day was perfect.  Meredith’s dress was a dream from my favorite bridal shop (seriously I tell all my bride’s about this gem!) and Clay looked dapper in his navy suit.  They were up for anything and it made the day so fun!   I love Richmond for the people and beauty! Congrats to Meredith and Clay! And a huge thank you to the lovely Carrie Michelle for second shooting and being amazing. More vendor information below.

It was such an honor to be a part of Chris and Danielle’s wedding at Lovewell Lodge in Giles County, Virginia….the motherland.  It was SUCH a perfect day from the special ceremony their pastor lead to the gorgeous flowers to the rainbow popping out after a shower.  It was special for me personally to see these two make a commitment to God and one another since I’ve known them since they were little.  Their journey is a good and beautiful one.  Enjoy some images from their day, congrats to these two.

 It was wonderful working with all the following vendors:

Katie talked about their wedding before they were engaged.  Usually something like that makes me all sorts of nervous – but in this case – when you know – you know.

Ryan and Katie’s love story is beautiful – a mix of all the real in life – timing, love, loss, redemption.  I think it is this depth that is reflected in their wedding day.  Friends traveled from all over the country to 10,000 feet to watch these two vow to for each other and Him for life. The smiles were so big and the laughter so deep. It was a joy to be a witness.

The “things” of the day were amazing as well – from Katie’s Hailey Paige dress to the Aspens it was a day of deep beauty and I hope you enjoy seeing it through my camera!

One day, I’m running the streets of Roanoke, Virginia with Maggie and the next, she’s walking down the aisle with Jeb.  It feels that way at least.  Maggie is such a special friend I met when she was in high school.  She always found a way to make me laugh, especially when we found ourselves at ridiculous locations or restaurants after a track or cross country meet.  Maggie is the kind of person you just want to be around, spend time with – so when she asked me to be a part of her wedding day, I accepted enthusiastically.  It was such a joy to meet Jeb and get to know him and his great family over the wedding weekend in Charlottesville.  He is such a match for Maggie and so kind.  From the rehearsal at the Bryan’s gorgeous family barn (post to come) to the wedding at the same church Jeb’s parents were married, to the King Family Vineyards reception, the celebration was perfect. I saw the Moore clan, the Roanoke crew, saw a 2018 bride, and met new lovely humans, all with camera in hand.  A good weekend indeed.  A huge thank you to Just a Little Diddy for pulling together amazing vendors (links below), timelines, and in general loveliness all around, what a great team!

I’m so excited for these two to build their life and family together.  Enjoy some photos of the day!
