I have been looking so forward to spending the day with Cidnye and Joe after exploring different areas of Richmond a few months ago for their Engagement Session. It was so much fun! I knew their wedding day was going to be just as wonderful, and that it certainly was!
Heather and Chris had such a FUN Engagement Session. They live right near the Lion’s Bridge in Newport News, and they wanted to capture their lives together there. They included an antique double bike that they both love, and their precious puppy dog, Lila!
A little something different on the blog today! I have been completely BLESSED with getting to be part of so many of Tyler and Cassandra’s memories. From their Engagement Session back in 2016 to now them welcoming their baby girl into the world. When Cass messaged me about traveling to Richmond to do these for them the answer was of course “ YES! “
So many favorites when watching their day unfold. I would have to say that daddy/daughter “ First Look “ though is hands down my favorite I have ever seen. Get the tissues in hand when you see dad see his little girl. It is moments like the full emotion you get to see unfold between McKenzie’s dad and her that makes having a Highlight Film so priceless. That second gets to be truly experienced all over again.
The vows that Taylor and Dan shared will surely cue all the tears ! It was important to them to have these recorded, and the are so touching! I shared a BOOK on this amazing wedding day a few weeks ago. I don’t feel like many words are needed before encouraging you to hit play on the photo below to see their Full Highlight Film.
This day was just the sweetest! Morgan and Mike contacted me back in 2017 about their wedding, and wanted to secure their day early. I LOVED THAT! I remember having the best time with the two of them doing their Engagement Session on a family friend’s local beach. We couldn’t wait for their big day to arrive!
One thing I really want to do on our blog is share little inspirational moments! I know that when things happen it is not just by chance, and my moment just may encourage someone who needs it. So here is my first Faith Corner Blog. Something that has been on my heart to do for awhile now , and I am so excited to share.
Beyond excited to share Vince and Danielle’s Highlight Film today! What a wonderful day these two had. Hunter sorted through so many special moments to put together the film for them. Click on the play button in the center to be taken to their full film!
Holy cow where to begin when remembering Taylor and Dan’s incredible day! I would have to say the biggest thing that made this day stick out so much to us would be the couple’s vows to each other. Their words were so touching, and completely from their heart of how much they love each other. It was like the perfect mixture of emotions from their tears and then just busting out laughing from being silly together.
Lacey and Kurt have been together for 4 years, and had such a wonderful wedding day surrounded by all their friends and family! The Historic Post Office is right in their home town of Hampton Roads, and was such an elegant choice for their day. We love getting to shoot there, and actually will be back there tomorrow for a video day!
I have been so excited to share Vince and Danielle’s day on the blog! I had the hardest time narrowing down just a handful from each part of their whole day. There were just soooo many special moments through out that day. Tears were shed quite a few times from everyone. They started when Danielle read her card from Vince. His words started off all the emotions that the day held for them. The 8 years together led to this moment.
One thing I LOVE that Hunter does when he puts together wedding films is how he tells the story of the day. From the beginning of getting ready all the way through to the last moment of the evening . Our couples get to watch back so many amazing moments. On a wedding day there is so much going on there is no way a bride and groom could remember them all. When they choose to have a film they don’t just see a still image they can actually go back and feel the emotions of the moments that were shared.
I had the best time with Cidnye and Joe touring around a few fun spots in Richmond! Cidnye had so many great ideas of places she loved in the area. Shockoe Bottom is where the railroad track is, and It was literally the perfect day to get these for them.
Sarah and Ryan had the most gorgeous mountain view wedding! Stover Hall is such beautiful rustic venue right in the heart of Luray, Va. The backdrop of the mountains for the Ceremony is so pretty, and the Reception hall is adorned with several stunning chandeliers that compliment the large windows showing the mountains as a backdrop!
I have always loved the Dogwood flower. It absolutely amazed me when I heard the story of its significance a few years ago. Today on Easter Sunday I wanted to take time to share the story for others to read incase you didn’t know the beauty that this amazing flower holds.
What an outstanding couple to begin our 2019 Wedding Season with! Nick and Chalsy had their dream wedding surrounded by all their loved ones on March 30th. Truly their whole day was just perfect from start to finish. The weather was with not a raindrop in site. Each moment fell perfectly into place, and it was such an amazing day.
I love it when I get the chance to do Bridal Portraits for our brides before their big day. It is the perfect opportunity for them to get hair/makeup done, and make sure everything is how they vision it to be on their wedding. Chalsy looked positively STUNNING in her wedding dress!
Champagne popping and lots of laughter filled Erika and Dom’s wedding day! Right from the start of the day I just loved everyones happiness for these two tying the knot. You can see just how much FUN these guys were having by their photos getting ready photos!
“These are absolutely incredible!! You have no idea how thankful we were to have y’all apart of this whole engagement to wedding experience! I can’t tell you how many people out of our bridal party/family raved about y’all as well!! They all said how awesome y’all were and how quickly you got us rolled through photos! Seriously, these are absolutely amazing! Y’all are the best!! Not only are the pictures themselves amazing but working with y’all and the quick turn around on all of our photos has been insane! We truly couldn’t be any happier!! Everything was captured perfectly!”
This has quickly become one of the favorite blog posts we do each year! Looking back at so many wedding days, and laughing continually at Hunter's dance moves ( with camera in hand ) LOL! There is even one shot of him dancing with camera and video light in hand! He always makes me smile!
What a GORGEOUS wedding day Kelsey and Derek had at Bandit's Ridge! The prettiest pastels for details and florals. It was such a beautiful and unique venue. The inside reception spot with the light colored wood photographed so classic and nice. The outside little barn area where the horses stalls were was decorated so pretty, and made for a dazzling backdrop of lights for portraits! Not to mention the kindest vendors to work with at the facility. It was such a nice wedding day!
There were SO many incredible moments through out this whole day. Several times where I was definitely moved to tears. Justine’s mom had recently passed away, and they did such a beautiful job honoring her through out the entire day. Her bouquet had a locket on it of her mother and grandmother. There was also a chair dedicated to her at the Ceremony. Justine also held her mother’s wedding photo for some photos with her same hat she wore. That is early in the film.
We were beyond blessed to capture these special memories for Justine and Matt! Make sure to not miss the end of the film during the daddy/daughter dance! I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place! Oh and YES everyone agrees Matt looks just like Vin Diesel haha!!!
