Jessica and Mike’s Rainy Wedding at Smith Mountain Lake

Jessica and Mike had planned a gorgeous wedding outside on the property of their cabin at Smith Mountain Lake, the ceremony overlooking their favorite mountain off in the distance. So, it’s only natural that the heaviest rains of the fall happened on their wedding day! Luckily, the barn was already set for the reception, and converted quickly for an intimate ceremony with the rain pounding on the roof. Jessica and Mike took the weather in stride, and focused on enjoying each other and their loved ones on their wedding day. In the meantime, I got to create some awesome images of them celebrating their love. Congrats Jessica and Mike and enjoy!

Chelsea and Ryland’s Woodland Wedding in Stafford, VA

Chelsea and Ryland were married last September on a perfect late summer afternoon. Friends and family all pitched in to transform Curtis Park in Stafford, VA into an idyllic woodland wedding. Small, personal touches really made the wedding special and feel exactly how Chelsea and Ryland imagined. I was only with them for a few hours on the wedding day, but I loved seeing Chelsea and Ryland feel completely relaxed and surrounded by loved ones on their wedding day. River City Wood Fire was on site feeding guests with awesome brick oven pizzas, made to order, and tasting flights of the couple’s favorite beers were served on custom-made wood trays. Their guests loved mingling and playing board games for the afternoon. Enjoy!

Ben and Kate’s Cape May Wedding

This past September I had the pleasure of photographing Ben and Kate’s wedding in Cape May, NJ at the historic Chalfonte Inn. Lisa and I met Kate years ago at a local zombie run, and have been friends ever since. Kate and Ben are two of the nicest people you’ll ever meet, and The Chalfonte made the perfect venue for these two, who wanted to spend as much time enjoying the company of their guests as possible. After a quick first-look on the gorgeous balcony of the Chalfonte, we celebrated their nuptials inside, followed by a lovely cocktail hour on the sweeping veranda(do they call it a veranda in the North?). After a quick walk to another local inn for additional portraits, we all danced our way into the night. The party spilled back out onto the veranda where guests cooled off and enjoyed the late night breeze coming in off the ocean. Thanks for including me, Ben and Kate!

Andrea and Matt’s Bluemont Vineyard Wedding

Andrea and Matt were married last August at Bluemont Vineyards in the ever gorgeous Bluemont, Virginia. I’ve been shooting weddings at Bluemont for close to ten years now, and Andrea and Matt were married on not only one of the nicest days I’ve had at Bluemont, but also one of the most moderate August days I can remember. After a few getting ready photos, Andrea and Matt were ready for their first look down amongst the grapevines! We spent a few minutes afterwards taking some romantic portraits before heading inside to sign the ketubah. After a gorgeous ceremony, guests lingered outside on the grounds, playing lawn games and enjoying the acoustic duet Andrea and Matt provided. We snuck back out into the vineyard after Matt and Drea’s first dance for some really gorgeous twilight photos, but after that it was all party!

Many thanks to Elegant Momentz for the gorgeous decorations and seamless planning!

Dorian and Michael’s Fredericksburg Wedding

Dorian and Michael were married in August of 2015, and I’m so happy to share some fun images from their wedding! I met Dorian and Michael at the Downtown Marriott to capture some intimate moments of them getting ready for their nuptials. From there we took a quick trip to King George for the ceremony, followed by a reception at the always gorgeous Stevenson Ridge. Before the party got started, we took a stroll around the property for some fun and causal portraits. After dinner, Dorian and Michael and I snuck back outside to get an early preview of the ice cream truck they had hired to surprise their guests with, and take some gorgeous portraits at dusk. After that, we partied well into the night!  As an aside, if you’re thinking about venues in the Fredericksburg area, please consider joining me at Stevenson Ridge’s Open House on March 13th to tour the venue, and meet myself and other wedding vendors. Details can be found here. In the meantime, enjoy the images!
