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

What a whirlwind the trip up the altar has been for Erin & Michael! Originally a 2020 couple, they planned their wedding day for December 2020 when almost one week prior to their wedding date, Virginia brides were hit with tightened restrictions again, effectively shutting down Erin & Michael’s already planned day. How do you manage moving a whole entirely planned wedding day with just days?

What an amazing way to bring in November! Ashley and Ben had the most beautiful wedding at Oakdale in Ashland, Virginia and I was so excited to see them again after their engagement session with me this past spring at Maymont.

Ashley and Ben, it was an honor getting to capture your day with all the fun, family, and cows. It was such a gorgeous day and the best way to kick off my November! Congrats to the new Mr & Mrs!

The carefully picked details from the diamond necklace that was made from the stone from Julia’s grandmother’s ring. A piece of her grandmother’s wedding dress from 1963 wrapped around the bottom of her bouquet. The fun mashups during their parent dances and how incredibly fun the dance floor was with the drummer and Dabke dancer! And most importantly, just seeing the love between these two.

When you have Harry Potter & Marvel references, thoughtful details like seeing your couple’s adorable dog included and touching tributes to loved ones, you KNOW it’s going to be one of the best weddings.

Stephanie and Justin, like so many couples planning a 2020 wedding, had made the big decision to move their wedding day to the following October and eloped in an intimate ceremony the first of October, 2020. So I got to come back up to Northern Virginia to photograph their big wedding/vow renewal and it was the best time!

Their wedding was truly a labor of love and full of joy. Shirley and Jedi got married the first Saturday of September at Lake Fung’s Barn in Disputana, Virginia, on his family’s farm. Their wedding was the first wedding held in the new barn and I couldn’t imagine a better first wedding for this barn than Shirley and Jedi’s.
