Back Bay Engagement Session || Brandon & Rachel's Virginia Beach Engagement Photos

Guys! I am so excited to be sharing Brandon & Rachel’s engagement session from Back Bay Wildlife Refuge! I sat down to edit a few sneak peeks and couldn’t even help myself- I ended up editing their entire session and cannot even choose a few favorites for social media! And we all know, I’m obsessed with beautiful weather, the sunshine, an amazing couple, and the beach, so this is was basically my dream!

I can’t even believe I’m admitting this, but I never once went to Back Bay the entire time I lived in the Hampton Roads area! It’s SO beautiful there, I am totally kicking myself for not making it a priority to explore and do more out there! But, that’s okay, because weekend visits and engagement sessions there can still happen!

I cannot wait for Brandon & Rachel’s wedding at Delfosse Winery in Central Virginia next June! It’s going to be here before we know it!!

Rustic Backyard Wedding in Eagle Rock, VA || Shawn & Kelsey's Clifton Forge Wedding

Let’s talk about the perfect Fall wedding day that Shawn & Kelsey had! Oh my goodness! After what felt like weeeeeeks of rain, their wedding day was sunny and beyond beautiful! There was the beginning of Fall chill in the air, and it really was just the perfect day!

Their day began at the most beautiful Hill Crest Mansion Bed & Breakfast in Clifton Forge, Virginia, where Kelsey got pampered with a mimosa bar, hair, makeup, and celebrations with her bridesmaids! Oh the bridal portraits we got on the porch there are to.die.for! The Southern Charm, I am just obsessed!

Their ceremony and reception was held on Shawn & Kelsey’s Farm and property- and guys, let me tell you! It was BEAUTIFUL! Tucked away in the middle of Eagle Rock, Virginia- there are mountain views every way you turn! Their friends and family gathered together to celebrate with them and they had a party! SO.MUCH.FUN.

Congratulations Shawn & Kelsey! What an honor it was to be there celebrating with you and your families!

Ross & Shelley: A Trivium Estate Wedding in Goode, Virginia

Shelley is one of those brides that I wish I could clone! She's so sweet & laid back, absolutely gorgeous and cannot take a bad picture! Walking into the bridal suite that morning, her and her friends were getting ready together, laughing and so joyful for their friends! There wasn't any tension or nervousness in the room, at all! Even as she stepped into her elegant gown and the clouds started rolling in, she took it in stride and made the call to move the ceremony to the backup plan. One of the great things about The Trivium Estate is that their ballroom is so beautiful, even with having to move to an indoor ceremony, you're getting a gorgeous setting! 

After the ceremony, we grabbed some clear umbrellas and headed outside. Luckily, the rain ended up stopping and we laughed and enjoyed our portrait time together. After dinner, we ducked quickly outside for a few minutes and were greeted with a gorgeous sunset overlooking the Peaks of Otter Mountains.

Sam & Larissa's Summer Wintergreen Resort Wedding

We all kept looking at each other all day and saying, "This is July, right?!" The sky was gray and getting darker as we drove up the mountain to Wintergreen Resort in Central Virginia for Sam & Larissa's wedding. These two specifically chose this location because they wanted an outdoor wedding on the mountain overlook, which is just the most unreal view. Somehow, the clouds seemed to clear up just in time for their ceremony! It was beautiful and their guests- who came in from all over the place, were able to enjoy the view and the temps in the low 70's! My kind of July wedding! 

As soon as the ceremony ended, we were able to get through the family portraits, the wedding party, and 4-5 Bride & Groom photos when it started POURING. We ran inside and shortened cocktail hour so Sam & Larissa could visit with their guests and get to dinner! The rain finally stopped, and when we went back out for our sunset photos, we were greeted with a thick, moody fog.  I typically am not a moody photographer, but oh my goodness- these moments between the two of them alone, were beautiful and so romantic! 

Larissa was SO laid back and happy all day- seriously my IDEAL bride! I love brides that are joyful and laid back! They're able to fully enjoy their day and not be stressed out by the little details! They hired an amazing team of vendors & were able to fully trust and be present in all the moments of their big day! 

Thank you to the AMAZING team of vendors that helped make this big day so great!

James & Tresa: A Knights Gambit Vineyard Summer Wedding in Charlottesville, Virginia

When I first chatted with James & Tresa last year about their Knight's Gambit Vineyard wedding in Charlottesville, Virginia, I knew it was going to be an amazing day! And then after we took their engagement session last fall (view their Sweet Briar Autumn engagement session here!) I had been counting down the days! They initially fell in love with Knight's Gambit from the gorgeous location (OMG the views there!!) and after talking with the owners they knew they wanted to get married there! They really wanted a wedding location that was in nature, and had a laid back and family friendly feel- they found the perfect fit! 

James & Tresa initially met on Match.Com! Their first meeting they went on a short walk, that turned into over 3 hours talking and walking about Lake Elkhorn. They absolutely love going on adventures together, from hiking and camping, boating, biking, and even making adventures out of laying grass seed or making dinner. They really know how to have a blast together, out of the big and little moments! 

They were so excited to include all of their family in the wedding- including all of their nieces and nephews (10 kids in the wedding party alone!!) Their outdoor ceremony overlooked the vineyard and mountains, and their tent reception made everything feel intimate! This wedding was so gorgeous, fun and I'm so excited for these two!!
