Carolina Yacht Club Wedding in Wilmington, NC

I absolutely loved ending my 2017 season by traveling down to Wilmington, NC to photograph this sweet couples First Presbyterian Church and Carolina Yacht Club wedding! These two had the sweetest day--the bride got ready at her parents' home surrounded by all her wonderful bridesmaids; they said "I do" at the local church downtown; and decked out the Carolina Yacht Club with string lights for their beachfront reception!

I loved the bride's Anna Kara wedding gown, especially because it paired perfectly with her antique veil, which was handmade by a family friend. The ladies looked flawless once Beauty Crew Mobile finished up with hair and makeup, didn't they!? Eco Chic Blossoms did an incredible job on floral design, and Ashley from LFF Designs did a great job coordinating the day. One Belle Bakery created a delicious wedding cake and Milners Cafe and Catering provided some seriously delicious food (my favorites were the tacos!). Lastly, the groovy music of Envision Band from East Coast Entertainment kept everyone dancing well into the night! 

I hope you enjoyed peeking at a few of my favorites from this sweet Wilmington wedding! Thanks for popping by...!

Richmond newborn photography with a holiday inspired family session in Richmond, VA

I just love, love, love everything about this sweet family. Aren't the images from their newborn session just so quiet and sweet? Family sessions are a funny thing, the photos are for the parents, right? But at the same time, I can't help but think of this precious little girl, all grown up, seeing the tenderness in her parents eyes, the joy and delight at her arrival! Anyone would be lucky to have photos to remember such a special time. 

Are you hoping to have some family photos shot on film? Or perhaps a newborn session here in Richmond? I really adore documenting families...! If you'd like to head over to the contact page and drop me a line, I would love the chance to get to know you and your family!

Morris House Hotel Wedding with Brass Tacks Events in Philadelphia, PA

What an absolute delight to travel up to Philadelphia, PA to document this sweet, joyful, beautiful Morris House Hotel wedding! I have been looking forward to this couple's wedding ever since I documented their University of Richmond engagement session earlier this year. I knew G+M's wedding day would be family oriented, elegant, laid back, and very special.  

We started the day with bridal preparations at the Morris House Hotel, a boutique hotel right across from Washington Square Park. The girls had such a great vibe going--music, champagne, and lots of laughter. Beke Beau did an amazing job on makeup, and she was such a delight to work with! Amanda D'Andrea also created some gorgeous and natural updo's for the ladies. Meanwhile, my second shooter Tim was over at the The Ritz-Carleton Hotel documenting the guys getting ready. 

These two chose to have a more traditional timeline, for the groom to see the bride for the first time as she walked down the aisle. Their St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church ceremony was so sacred and meaningful, and I loved seeing the joy on their faces and they walked back down the aisle, this time as husband and wife!

After the ceremony and some quick family formals at the church, we all hopped on a trolley and got a neat mini tour of the city! We took some wedding day portraits at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and afterward we were sure to grab that classic Philadelphia wedding image of the bride and groom in front of the capital building!

We ended the day back at the Morris House Hotel for some quick family formals at Washington Square Park. You guys, how beautiful was this outdoor tent reception on the patio!? It felt like a secret garden, tucked away from the craziness of the city, all the fairy lights and the beautiful greenery. La Petite Fleur honestly did such a perfect job on all the florals, and Beth over at Brass Tacks Events kept the day running smoothly, that's for sure. After a wonderful first dance, some special and sweet toasts, M+G and all their friends and family danced the night away to the groovy tunes of DJ Sellers from Silver Sound Entertainment.

Such a beautiful, special wedding! I hope you enjoyed seeing a few of my favorites from the day and thanks for stopping by!

Seven Springs Engagement Session in Manquin, VA

I so enjoyed meeting up with these two in Manquin, Virginia for their Seven Springs engagement session! I love, love, love all the laughter, joy, and ease between them. Do you guys know, I actually met the bride in high school (!!!!!!!!). Can you believe that!? We played on the golf team together, and it is such a hoot to reconnect with her and to get to know her fiancé, too.

I am so looking forward to celebrating their wedding next year at The Barns at Hamilton Station Vineyards, but meanwhile I hope you enjoyed this peek at their sweet engagement session!
