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

It feels like he was just born last week ago, not two months! I’m so sad that he’s growing so fast, but at the same time, I’m so excited for all the milestones he’s hitting and all the future milestones we’ll get to. He’s such a light and joy in our lives and as much as I miss sleep, he is, by far, the best thing to ever happen to me.

It feels like I just had him two days ago. It is beyond wild to believe that one month ago, our sweet boy made his debut and changed our lives forever. I could cry with how much I love him, and sometimes I just look at him and tears of joy happen just because I am so so grateful that he is ours, that he’s beautifully healthy and strong and that he’s my son and I’m his Mama. I thank God everyday for making me his Mama.
