Wedding Highlight Film | McKenzie & Christian

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.

Kelsey + Derek | Bandit's Ridge | Louisa, Va

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!

Justine + Matt | Early Mountain Vineyard | Highlight Film

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!!!

Michelle + Shawn | Intimate Smithfield Wedding

Sooo much love and so much pretty!!! Michelle and Shawn's wedding day was just beautiful in every way. They chose to have an intimate small wedding at their lovely home right in Smithfield. It was the perfect backdrop for their very sweet Ceremony. The Fall colors mixed with Fleur De Fou's gorgeousss florals was just stunning. 

After having all the Family Pictures done they took a Horse and Carriage ride to The Smithfield Inn for their Reception. It was like straight out of a Fairy Tale!  An absolutely exquisite handmade Wooden Farm Table adorned with flowers and candles awaited them when they arrived.. After everyone was finished with dinner it was time to cut the cake. Yummaries Bakery made a fabulous ( and delicious ) Naked Cake. They ended their evening with laughing, dancing, and then releasing lanterns over the water. 

We are so happy for Shawn and Michelle! It was wonderful being part of their amazing day.  We have also included their short Highlight Film at the bottom of this post.

Wedding Day Highlight Film| Leigh + Jason | The Signature at West Neck

When our couples choose us to not only capture their photos, but their film too I am so excited for them! Photos are amazing, and truly I am believer that you can never have enough! You never get a moment back once it is gone. You can't relive that exact moment ever again. So a photo of that moment saves it forever! A film of that moment literally draws the emotion you felt in the words you were saying, or the even the breath you were taking.
