Fearrington Village Wedding in Pittsboro, NC

How sweet is this wedding, you guys!!!! It was tough to pick my favorites because there are so many joyful, beautiful, meaningful photos in this couple's wedding gallery.

Fearrington Village is a beautiful place to celebrate--quiet, historic and intimate, the perfect backdrop for a southern wedding. These two got married on a warm summer day earlier this year. They chose to do a first look and portraits before the ceremony, so that they had more time to spend with their friends and family come cocktail hour and reception. The reception brought funny toasts, great music, and delicious food. I am so happy for these two and delighted to share with you a few photos from their day!

Are you engaged and looking to have your wedding celebration captured on film? Do you connect the most with sincere and joyful photos? Drop me a line, I would love to get to know you and hear more about your wedding day plans!

Country Club of Virginia Bridal Session

....you guys! This beautiful bride was married just a few weeks ago and I am so pleased to share a few favorites from her Country Club of Virginia bridal session shot earlier this spring. You would never know, but it was FREEZING out when we shot these! But Martha was calm and patient, and I just love the way her portraits turned out. Film is so beautiful, and is the perfect medium on which to photograph a bride (in my opinion!). Not to mention CCV, with that gorgeous outdoor patio area, covered and perfect for photos. And of course, Martha looked stunning...! I am already working on her wedding photos and absolutely can't wait to share them on the blog. Keep your eyes peeled, folks...!

James River Engagement Session Shot on Film, Co-starring a Dog Named Margot Who is Ridiculously Cute

....you guys!!! I could not be more excited to share this sweet engagement session with you. I actually met Leigh years ago in college, and since then I have seen her and Chris at several weddings I have photographed. It is my absolute delight to now have the opportunity to photograph their own wedding next year. I am super excited for it! 

I loved reconnecting with these two, meeting their pup Margot (WHAT A CUTIE!!!), walking around their neighborhood, and playing at the James. Such a sweet, relaxed engagement session with a sweet, relaxed couple.

Are you getting married here in Richmond? Or are you interesting in a photo session at the James, playing on the rocks or swimming in the river? Drop me a line, I would love to chat more with you...!
