Have you ever met someone that is very similar to you and has the same style as you? You just “click” and feel like you’ve been friends for forever?! That’s how I feel around Jess. We started emailing forever ago and then met up for their engagement session last year and despite the heat, we had a wonderful time and I Ieft knowing that these two were a special couple. Jess is a graphic designer with a love for TEAL and all things chic and modern! Her save the dates were a tell tale sign that we were supposed to work together! They were amazing and guess what, they were TEAL! :) Her talent was displayed every where on their wedding day. Everything was so beautiful and so elegant! Bob and Jess have amazing friends and families that came in from all over to celebrate with them and they couldn’t have picked a better venue!
Pippin Hill was the PERFECT wedding venue for them! Their ceremony location overlooked the mountainside and their reception was held in the amazing barn-like ballroom that Pippin is known for! And even though we were battling the heat once again, they made time for some beautiful portraits and I can’t WAIT to share them with you!!
This couple will forever be a favorite for us! While I’ve only been with Bob and Jess on two occasions, I feel like old friends! Their love is so evident in their pictures and it was so much fun being able to capture them on their incredible day! Bob was so handsome and Jess was just drop dead gorgeous!! And did I mention that they were married at one of the prettiest vineyards in Charlottesville?! I have been waiting to shoot at Pippin Hill for a long time and this was the perfect couple for my first time! Bob and Jess have a way about them that makes everyone in their presence feel loved and I’m so thankful that we had the chance to take part in this awesome season of their lives!!Oh how I LOVE these shoes!!! Seriously, I think I need a pair! Can you tell…. I REALLY like the shoes. :) Probably one of my all time favorite invitations! Jess you are so talented girl!! Love this song request idea for the RSVP’s! The amazing save the date!! I love them… but I’m a little biased since my images are all over it! :) Oh Jess you are stunning. Such a perfect bride!! Love everything about your look!!! Off to see her groom!!! Michael’s angle… My angle…. Love this one of Michael’s! Work it!!! The most gorgeous bridal party! Those shoes!! Ah! Beautiful girl!s! Love Michael’s shot before they made their way down the aisle… Jess you’re glowing! … and not because it was 100 degrees! :) You look radiant!
This beautiful day way unlike any wedding I have ever photographed before. It’s hard to put into words how powerful and inspiring it was.
If you’ve been following my updates since I got the R6 two years ago, you know I LOVE it!! It has been a game changer for me! But there is ONE mistake that I’ve made that cannot be fixed afterwards!
There are things that EVERY photographer should have on their website! We will walk through some students’ websites to see how small changes can impact their perceived value, and for you to see if what they’re missing is something that you are too!
You know what I’m realizing? I’m realizing I am loving getting to see people I love and miss in this very busy season of our life.
We’re gearing up for wedding season and there are so many ways to market yourself DURING a wedding to keep new clients coming in! I have been a wedding photographer for 13 years, and I have never paid for ‘traditional’ advertising!
I am eating my words again! For years, I have used InDesign for everything… but Canva had a HUGE update last year which changed everything!!
