Charlottesville Virginia Vineyard Winery and Wedding Venue

Delfosse Vineyard & Winery Wedding || Brandon & Rachel's Charlottesville, VA Wedding

Saturday’s wedding was beyond amazing. Delfosse Vineyard and Winery in Faber, Virginia is STUNNING. I love these Virginia wineries and the view from Delfosse is unparalleled! I can’t wait to go back for a personal trip- I’m dying to try the wine there next time! ;)

Brandon & Rachel’s wedding day was stunning! These two are so sweet & laid-back, it was such a blast! Walking in, the girls were getting their hair and makeup done on the front porch, and just having the best time together! They had the sweetest first look, and their ceremony overlooked the Delfosse Vineyard and Mountains. So gorgeous!

Brandon & Rachel! I am SO excited for you guys and am so honored to have been a part of your wedding day! What a special time! Enjoy your honeymoon! I’m just slightly jealous! ;)

Lynchburg, VA Engagement Session || Thomas & Logan's Lynchburg Engagement

These fall days in Lynchburg can be all over the place- one day it’s 60 and beautiful and the next it’s back up in the 80’s and SO humid. For Thomas & Logan’s engagement session, it was definitely the latter of the two, but we survived the heat and had a great time getting to know each other at their engagement session!

Thomas & Logan are getting married this December at West Manor Estate in the Lynchburg, VA area and I am super excited for their wedding day! And in December, I’m sure we will be wishing we were back in the summertime heat! ;)

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!!

Why I love PhotoMechanic || Lynchburg, Virginia Wedding & Portrait Photographer

Super quick post here today- but I've talked to SO MANY photographers lately that have never used PhotoMechanic! I rave and rave about this program and thought if I know so many here in Lynchburg locally, there must be so many other people too! 

Lynchburg and Charlottesville Wedding Photographer || Why I love PhotoMechanic || www.ashleyeiban.com

PhotoMechanic has literally saved me hours of time back in my workflow. I used to just load and cull in Lightroom as I was editing, and really had no idea how much time it was taking me! It takes 7-12 seconds per image to load the RAW files in lightroom- which really adds up when you're talking about sorting through thousands of images from a wedding! 

I use PhotoMechanic strictly for culling my images. Culling is just the basic process of looking over all of the photos that you take during a session or a wedding and choosing which ones to keep, and which ones to get rid of if someone is blinking, sneezing, my flash didn't go off, etc.  

PhotoMechanic loads the photos super fast and in a JPEG format so you can see the photos in focus quickly, and they aren't quite as flat, which can help! It's a one-time fee, but worth every penny! Hope this saves you tons of time!! 

Trivium Estate Wedding || AJ & Kimberly classic, fall wedding day

Everything about AJ & Kim's wedding day was so beautiful and classy! From her gorgeous venue at The Trivium Estate, that ahhh-mazing gown, the gorgeous florals, and her super sweet groom, that had a smile on his face all day. 

I know you've heard this before, but AJ & Kim just radiate their love for each other! It's so inspiring to be around a couple that is so happy and joyful- and you could just tell from all of their friends and family there for the day! These two needed no direction from me, they just automatically cuddled up together, laughed, kissed, and got lost in the moment. I was in portrait heaven with these two- I wish we had another hour for portraits! ;) 

Their first look was stunning & so sweet! AJ surprised Kim with the most thoughtful gifts and notes, and he was almost speechless when he saw her put together in her dress! Ahh So sweet! I've been so excited to share these photos with you guys!
