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!

LEE & MONICA

Lee and Monica’s Richmond wedding took place at two of downtown’s most iconic locations- the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart and the Omni Hotel– but this wedding was anything but the norm! Along with Mirna of Brousseau Events, they planned basically the perfect day- a blending of traditions from different cultures, classic style, and all of their RVA faves.

Up until the day of their wedding, they were predicting storms, so we were prepared with umbrellas… but luckily the only rain we saw came during the ceremony where everyone was dry and comfortable in the stunning Cathedral of the Sacred Heart. After a few portraits, we hopped on the trolley for a mini tour of Richmond, stopped by Charm School for some photos in front one of the best Richmond murals, and then headed to Libby Hill Park where Monica got the BEST surprise from Lee- an appearance from their best friend, Cash.

After a photo break with King of Pops, we were dropped off at the Omni, where the reception space was beautifully decorated and where their friends and family were waiting to celebrate… also where Erick of My Fellow DJ (a club DJ turned wedding DJ) won us over with the Wu Tang instrumental that kicked off dinner. The rest of the night was a mixture of sentimental toasts, traditional dancing, slow motion photo booth modeling (check that out here!), and an all out dance party.

Lee and Monica, thanks for having us along for the ride- we loved capturing your day!

NADINE & DAVE

The beginning of Spring is getting me excited for all of our upcoming weddings this year! But there is still so much I haven’t shared from last year… including this gorgeous Dover Hall Estate wedding from last May. Nadine and Dave are so much fun and have amazing taste (I’m still so in love with Nadine’s dress), the weather couldn’t have been more perfect, and the Kim Moody Design team created some of the most stunning decor. Reeeeally wouldn’t mind doing this day over again…
