She was making her way up the coast and I was worried. She was gaining strength and I thought “Oh dear, if I’m shooting a wedding in the midst of Sandy’s wrath, I’m done for!”. However, Sandy took a different route on Saturday and we were grateful!! The overcast skies were a constant reminder that it could have been raining with strong winds but it wasn’t. It was just an overcast October day. The leaves were still on the trees and it was the perfect day for a wedding!! Michael and Laura were married at the Adam’s International School in Goochland, VA. This is a newer wedding venue and it’s perfect for the DIY bride! …. and even MORE perfect for the DIY COUNTRY bride!
The red barn and the open fields were a perfect setting for their wedding day! And just to make it a little more photogenic, they had the most amazing antique truck on display! Laura actually arrived to their ceremony IN the back of truck! Her dad drove her to the ceremony and she hopped off the back and made her way down the aisle! So fun!! “Fun” is actually the perfect way to describe this couple. Laura is carefree…she put her dress on and then I found her in the kitchen icing her wedding cake!! I’m serious! Isn’t that awesome! Michael is such a gentleman with the sweetest smile! It was easy to take pictures of these two!! The whole day was filled with loud laughter, big smiles and a ton of fun with their family and friends! I’m so happy for them AND so thankful that the weather held off!! Enjoy some of my favorites from this awesome country wedding!!!Laura’s laugh is amazing! Something blue! And shiny! And comfortable!! ha! Decorating her own wedding cake! YAYYY!!! I love fall!!! Guests relaxed picnic style for their ceremony!! Here comes the bride! They released balloons together during the ceremony! YESSS! Favorite!! Or maybe this is the favorite!! How cute!! Tea bar?! Love it! Gah! Venue | Adam’s International School Dress | Bella Rosa Catering | Mary Hollifield Florals | DIY Favors | Homemade Jam
How special is this?! Another sweet KJ Couple turned KJ Family and I had the honored of capturing this fleeting season for them!
I want this podcast to be a place where you come to have more of a conversation with me about what’s going on in our day to day life!
Oh I just loved this session. The light, the outfit choices, the location, the family! It was all perfect and I’m so grateful for a chance to see a veteran KJ couple again!
This new AI feature in Lightroom has made it easier to now leave Photoshop behind and do almost EVERYTHING I need to in Lightroom! Wow!
I have come to realize that there have been so many people in my life who have shaped me and called me up to be the mom, wife, business owner, photographer I am today. I am sharing why I think mentorship is so valuable to every individual and invite you to consider who is helping you learn and grow!
This day was just perfection. I knew it would be from the moment Caitlin emailed me about being a part of their day. She and Devon are in the photography industry and I knew they would put a high value on the creative side of their day.
