Beckal’a & Brian
Fairhill Farm – Stanardsville, Virginia
“Bright, light, airy and timeless with neutral colors and classic styles” – that’s how Beckal’a and Brian described their vision for their wedding day. From that moment, we knew we would be a perfect fit! We always love when couples incorporate a piece of themselves into their wedding – for Beckal’a that was her love of literature. Beckal’a is a talented book blogger (you can read all about it here!) so she integrated her passion into their day by using books as centerpieces and displaying a wooden door with loves quotes on it. Their decor was perfectly complimented by shades of white, cream and light blue.

Mehma & Raj
Happy Friday guys! Did we ever mention that we LOVE D.C.? Maybe that’s why we can’t stop swooning over Mehma and Raj’s engagement session! It also doesn’t hurt that they looked like total movie stars. When we first video chatted about their session, Mehma casually mentioned that she had a ball gown to wear and she did NOT disappoint!

Kristen & Jamie
Keswick Vineyards – Keswick, Virginia
On this cloudy day, we are reminiscing about Kristen and Jamie’s stunning summer wedding! Given Kristen and Jamie’s love for exploring Virginia wine country, Keswick Vineyards made the perfect setting for their wedding. Between the gorgeous plantation style home, fountain, vines and Blue Ridge Mountains backdrop, there was no lack of beautiful photo opportunities on the property.

2018: A Year in Review
Hi guys! We hope that everyone had an amazing 2018! We are so excited to announce that we are getting back to blogging (and Facebook) after taking a hiatus to better serve our couples! We are so humbled that 33 incredible couples trusted us to capture their weddings last year – we couldn’t be more grateful for your support! We want to take this opportunity to share some of the highlights from our 2018 weddings below!
Julie & Daniel
Brooklyn Bridge, NYC
What happens when wedding photographers make an impromptu trip to NYC and don’t have any sessions lined up? They improvise of course. One does not simply go to the Brooklyn Bridge at golden hour and not take advantage of the breathtaking views. The solution? Ask the cutest strangers that you see if they would like to take some epic photos.
