Sorella Farms Wedding in Lynchburg, Virginia || Gabe & Meghan's Central Virginia Wedding

Gabe & Meghan's Sorella Farms wedding day was so beautiful! It was a GORGEOUS fall day, the colors were starting to turn on the trees and their ceremony location overlooked the gorgeous mountains! Meghan is one of those brides that I wish I could clone. She's so sweet, super laid back, and truly lived in the joyful moments of her wedding day! 

Sorella Farms in Evington- right outside of Lynchburg- is such a gorgeous venue! Their Bridal Suite and getting ready room is the perfect space to hang out with your wedding party and get ready! Gabe & Meg's ceremony was STUNNING overlooking the Blue Ridge Parkway! Right after the ceremony, the sky started turning dark gray and we quickly changed the timeline to get some photos of them together before it started to downpour. We moved SO fast and got through all of their couple portraits- just in time for the sun to come back out for family and wedding party portraits AND sunset photos with Gabe & Meg.  

Their reception in the Sorella Farms barn is gorgeous! Their reception space is so elegant and classy with draped white fabric, twinkle lights, and gold mirrors on the barn doors. It's gorgeous! 

Congratulations Gabe & Meg! We're so excited for you guys as you begin life together! 








Blue Ridge Parkway Engagement Session || Scott & Amy's Thunder Ridge Engagement

One of my most favorite things about living in Lynchburg, VA is just how close we are to so many amazing places- and the Blue Ridge Parkway is on the top of that list! Thunder Ridge is an overlook spot that is beyond gorgeous- I mean, those stunning views- and major perk- you don’t have to hike to get there! ;)

When I talked with Scott & Amy and they mentioned wanting mountain views and I knew Thunder Ridge would be perfect for their engagement session! These two are so sweet and I truly loved getting to know them both more before their wedding next year at Wintergreen Resort!

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.

Lenis & Becky's Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyard Summer Wedding in Charlottesville, VA

Shooting a wedding at Pippin Hill Vineyards has been a bucket list venue for me to photograph a wedding at for such a long time, and I was finally able to cross it off my list this past weekend for Lenis & Becky's wedding! There are so many gorgeous wineries in the Charlottesville area, but Pippin Hill is one of my favorites! The view of the winery overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains, the patio & tasting room, everything is beautiful- it was the perfect location for Lenis & Becky's wedding! 

Everything about their wedding was elegant and classy! From the staff handing out champagne and rose' as guests arrived for their wedding, Becky's stunning bridal gown, the ceremony on the lawn under the chuppah, to the gorgeous ballroom reception with a full band and the most amazing florals and the best dinner ever.

Lenis & Becky had such a sweet first look moment and we were able to get tons of their family and wedding party portraits done before the ceremony started! Their ceremony had a Jewish twist and was so touching and beautiful! The summer view of the mountains behind them was just perfection! And we also took advantage of some time during dinner and got some super romantic photos as the sun was setting! I am so excited to share this one with you guys! 

We LOVED working with the amazing vendors that made this wedding a stunning success!
