STEPHANIE & TRAVIS

A few weeks ago, we had an amazing excuse to take a little trip to Hawaii- my cousin Travis and his fiance Stephanie got married in Maui! We extended our trip a little, had an amazing time, and captured so many gorgeous photos… but Trav and Steph’s wedding day at Royal Lahaina Resort was definitely the highlight of it all. Most of my Dad’s side of the family made the trip so capturing this wedding day was extra fun for us. Hawaii is a photographer’s dream- can we do this all over again please?!

2018 WEDDING FAVORITES

We captured lots of unforgettable moments in 2018… big ones, little ones, romantic ones, serious ones, funny ones, and lots of in between moments when no one realized we were watching. It’s basically impossible to narrow it down to a small set of favorites, but below are a few of mine! And if I had to do it over again tomorrow, I might choose completely different images. But today I was focused on the moments… with a few pretty scenes and timeless portraits mixed in there. Which is pretty appropriate since that’s exactly how I’d describe my style of photography 🙂

 

Thank you to all of these awesome couples and their friends/families for trusting us with capturing these memories for them!

BLAINE & SARAH

Blaine and Sarah’s wedding day was our last wedding of 2018! Technically, their wedding day is September 15th- the day they were originally planning to get married at Tredegar Iron Works. But Hurricane Florence rolled through Richmond that week and forced them to rethink their plans. Instead of asking so many of their out of town guests to travel in the terrible weather, they decided to postpone their celebration and just have a small ceremony that day. But two months later, a change in venue, and lots of replanning by Jennings Whiteway and her amazing team at Belles & Whistles, they finally got to have the celebration they always wanted… below are a few of our favorites from the day!
