Thorpewood Wedding | Amanda + Bryan

The forecast called for rain all week, but despite a few sprinkles we saw on our drive out to Thurmont for Amanda and Bryan’s wedding at Thorpewood, it turned out to be such a beautiful day! It was exactly what I think of when I envision that perfect June wedding day! Amanda and Bryan are two sweethearts who have overcome a lot in the past year, so their wedding day was full of emotions. I felt an overwhelming sense of joy radiating from the two of them and could tell that they were just so happy to finally get to be husband and wife!

This wedding was so fun to be a part of! They gave us plenty of portrait time and were just so flexible and sweet! Here are a few of my favorites from their day 🙂

Amazing work..!! Such stunning pics. Would be awesome if you can tag GlamNGlow Makeup as the hair and makeup artist. Looking forward to seeing some ‘getting ready’ pics of Amanda.


Carnival Engagement Session | Francis + Aamir

I love it when clients want to do unique things for their engagement sessions! Francis and Aamir really wanted to their photos at a carnival, but there wasn’t one in town for when we’d initially scheduled their session. Rain made us postpone, which actually worked out great because there was a carnival in town the week of our rescheduled date!!

It’s always more of a challenge for both the couple and for us when we shoot in a location that’s typically really busy (like a carnival, for instance!), but I thought Francis and Aamir handled it so well! They were so sweet and natural together!

We enjoyed hanging out with them last week and can’t wait for their TWO weddings at the end of the year!

Hahn Horticulture Garden Wedding | Robyn + Nick

One of the biggest compliments you can get as a wedding photographer is when one of your couples refers you to a close friend or family member. Robyn was the maid of honor at our past bride Kala’s wedding, so I was thrilled when she emailed me saying she was engaged and looking for her wedding photographers!

She first reached out more than a year ago about their May 2016 wedding at Hahn Horticulture Garden in Blacksburg at Virginia Tech and after getting to know both Robyn and Nick over the course of the last 16 months or so, I was so excited for their wedding day to finally arrive! I think this will go down as one of my favorites because the entire day was such a sweet, emotional event that felt intimate despite the fact that they had over 100 guests attend. So many happy tears!

Airlie Wedding Photos | Emilee + Jonathan

Can we talk about how crazy the weather this year has been? It’s been one of the wettest years I can remember. After weeks and weeks of dealing with the rain, we were so glad to have a beautiful, sunny day for Emilee and Jonathan’s wedding at the beautiful Airlie Center in Warrenton! It was so nice after having been rained on at many of our Spring weddings so far!

There were so many things I loved about Emilee and Jonathan’s wedding day…I loved the floral bridesmaids dresses from BHLDN, the calligraphed love quotes on each of their reception tables, and that Emilee and Jonathan just seemed so relaxed and happy all day! Enjoy a few of my favorite images!!

During the first look they read notes they’d written for one another and Emilee gave Jonathan a friendship bracelet she’d made!

Purcellville Wedding Photos | Lauren + Mike

We love all of the couples that we get to work with, but Lauren and Mike will always hold a special place in our hearts just for the very fact that they got married on our fifth anniversary! We couldn’t have imagined a better couple to share our wedding date with, or a better way to celebrate our anniversary:)

Lauren’s aunt’s farm made the perfect backdrop for their ceremony and reception. Though it was rainy and wet almost all day, these two made the best of it with clear umbrellas all around for outdoor portraits. And luckily, the rain stopped just as the ceremony was about to begin, so they were still able to do it outside as planned!

This was such a sweet, heartfelt day from beginning to end!  I hope you enjoy a few of my favorites!!
