Here’s my favorite wedding venues in Virginia for the most incredible portraits, coming from a Richmond VA wedding photographer who knows that not only should your venue be a spectacular place for hosting a wedding but should also have equally spectacular features for your wedding day photography.

Modern & Classic VMFA Wedding

It was an incredible day filled to the brim with stunning details. Luisa & Matt decided on March 19 for their wedding date and we were blessed with one of the most beautiful Virginia spring days I’ve ever seen for a wedding. Luisa’s eye for a classy and modern wedding came to life and I was blown away by the details and how her vision came together for their VMFA wedding in Richmond, Virginia.

They waited 441 days for this day. It was so evident on their wedding day just how loved they are by the people who know them and knowing them, you just can’t help it. I loved every minute of working with these two and it never even felt like work because it was just so much fun! It was truly my honor being their photographer and friend. Enjoy scrolling through my favorites from this gorgeous whimsical and colorful summer Old Silk Mill wedding!

Last Friday I got to meet Matt & Luisa at Libby Hill Park in Richmond VA for their engagement session and I have to say it was definitely one of the most fun engagement sessions I’ve ever done! The weather was perfect and it was a sunny day which made for gorgeous golden hour portraits! Luisa and Matt were so fun to talk with and getting to hear more about them and their sweet pets! Especially since their 5 month old puppy, Max, joined us for photos and I was over the moon!

For Brides

The last of the 2021 recap series and definitely a fun one to go through! It’s not easy behind the scenes but it sure is fun and oh, so extremely rewarding. I’m not the only vendor working hard to make a wedding day flow perfectly & smoothly and I’m thankful for having worked with the best vendors in 2021. And my second photographers, they’re in a whole new league with being incredible photographers and grabbing these BTS shots as a bonus. Love you guys! Now enjoy a peek at the controlled chaos, mess and funny faces behind the scenes of weddings in 2021.

Ah four years now into this adventure. 4 years of weddings, working with incredible couples and amazing vendors and I’m celebrating with this new online home AND announcing the winners of the giveaways!

This year’s blog posts looks a little different than 2019’s Behind the Scenes post. I never imagined getting into my car, ready to leave and confident that I have everything I need for a wedding day then running back inside to grab a mask.

What a wild wild ride 2020 was. Pumping during weddings, wearing a mask, packing myself lunch to make sure I knew how my food was handled just in case I felt uncomfortable, helping brides plan safe weddings through a pandemic. Still, I had an amazing time and though sometimes you couldn’t tell behind my mask, I was laughing and smiling through the day. Enjoy some peeks at behind the scenes during 2020!

I had a good laugh going through photos for this one, ya’ll. Weddings are so beautiful and full of joy and laughter and it’s always so rewarding. Behind the pretty photos are a hard working team of vendors that make literal magic happen and it’s always so fun remembering the controlled chaos of the wedding day and being so proud of the hard work put in to make the bride & groom’s day AMAZING. A lot of coffee, hard work, and love for my couples went into this wedding season and I’m excited to share the Behind the Scenes 2019!
