2019 WEDDING FAVORITES

We worked with some pretty amazing couples in 2019! Here are a few of our favorite moments…

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

 

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

BEN & ALLISON

It’s not every day that you find the person you want to spend your life with in high school, but these two are so obviously perfect for each other. Allison and Ben’s wedding day included two of the best pups, Charlottesville mountain views, classic stylish details, one of my favorite families, and lots of longtime friends who have become their family. A little glimpse into this beautiful day below…

Start with a beautifully preserved family-owned historic plantation, complete with a tree lined driveway and a large working farm… add in a pre-ceremony cocktail hour, a warm Fall day, some vintage cars, a laid back ceremony, a quick thunderstorm, delicious bbq, an energetic band that kept everyone onto the dance floor the ENTIRE night, the sweetest family, and two warm and funny people who are clearly a perfect fit for one another… and you have Casey and Jillian’s wedding day!

2017 WEDDING FAVORITES

When you deliver 1000+ images at every wedding, it’s reeeeally hard to narrow down your favorites to a handful of photos from each one… but I did my best ๐Ÿ™‚ For sentimental reasons, artistic reasons, or just because the moment was awesome, here are some of my favorite wedding and engagement images from 2017. A sincere thank you and a giant cheers to all of the amazing couples who let us into their lives and allowed Travis and I to capture these moments!

DANIEL & JENNA

Because itโ€™s their 1 year anniversary and because I miss seeing their faces, I went back and relived this gorgeous wedding day today!
