Weekend Update || Smith Mountain Lake elopement & Charlottesville engagement session

Oh what a beautiful weekend! I cannot believe it's NOVEMBER and it's still warm enough to wear short sleeves and flip flops- and the leaves are just now hitting peak season! It's so amazing- can every year be like this? I know that the freezing cold is coming oh so soon, so I'm going to take advantage of this glorious sunshine for as long as possible!! 

This weekend was absolutely stunning.  The sunshine, the leaves, the sweet people!! I just loved every minute of it! 

It was such an honor to take some photos of Heidi Baker, the owner of The Trivium Estate in Forest, Virginia.  She is so gorgeous and we had so much fun catching up after a very busy wedding season!

Joel & Kayla Engaged! || Lynchburg Wedding & Portrait Photographer

As I'm writing this, the sun is shining (FINALLYYYYYY), it's seriously warm outside (well, hellllllo summertime!!! I've been waiting for you all year!), and my pre-schooler is home and is napping (that NEVER happens anymore) so I started Happy Hour a little early and popped open a bottle of wine that this amazing couple gifted me.  Yes, you heard that right.. they gifted it to me!!!! These two just have the sweetest hearts ever! 

This couple had the best attitudes ever.  We planning on meeting up at Thunder Ridge off the Blue Ridge Parkway on Sunday afternoon, which was a beautiful day.. up until we pulled into the parking lot.  It started POURING. It was dreary and foggy and COLD.  But we took advantage of it and used that fog to our advantage and goodness did it give us some amazing photos!! Then, the sun finally came out, lit up all the fog and we got a glimpse of that stunning view!!

Mark & Amber Smith Mountain Lake Elopement

Neither rain nor shine could hold this adorable couple down!! Mark & Amber choose to have a small, intimate elopement ceremony, with both sets of parents there, overlooking the gorgeous Smith Mountain Lake at the Mariner's Landing.  It really was the perfect setting! It started raining just as the ceremony started, but what a romantic setting it was! 

After the ceremony, we headed out to the docks for some photos when it started POURING! This couple was in such great spirits though and we got some amazing photos despite the rain and wind!! But, don't worry- the sun came out shortly after and we were able to get some amazing photos in the sunshine too!

Coleton & Elizabeth's engagement session || Downtown Lynchburg, VA Engagement Photographer

I looooooooove that I have some super awesome couples that are braving the cold and getting their engagement photos done this winter!! I was so excited to have our engagement session with Coleton & Elizabeth- when I first met with them a few months ago, it totally felt like I was catching up with old friends! They are the sweetest couple, are always laughing & smiling and so down-to-earth! What could be better!!?! 

We met up in downtown Lynchburg and got some photos on the streets in Lynchburg and then headed over to Percival's Island on the Blackwater Running Trails! 



Mike & Emilee's Snow Day Elopement: Lynchburg, VA Wedding Photographer

I don't even know where to begin with this post! Mike & Emilee's wedding weekend was crazy stressful with ups and downs and a snow storm that hit the entire east coast and shut down the entire city of Lynchburg, VA.  Their Saturday wedding wasn't going to happen when their venue couldn't keep their roads cleared and couldn't have the liability of having all of their employees brave the snow.  This couple was calm and collected throughout the weekend, and even was featured on the local news! (View their story here!

When they realized they couldn't make their wedding happen on Saturday like planned, they decided to drive to their pastor's house (who was stuck in his driveway) and eloped in his yard.  It was such a beautiful ceremony & I loved being there to capture the images from those moments!!
