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.
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!
We walked through the tall grass, walked on the sandy beach part and we used up every single second of sunlight the day had to offer. We left the park at dusk with a memory card full of incredibly gorgeous images and the best feeling. I loved getting to hang out with these two again and it was a session I’d be thrilled to do over and over and over again. TJ mentioned he wasn’t a huge fan of photos and that he wasn’t a model but he and Melissa honestly belong on the cover of a magazine somewhere with how incredible they were during their session!
I wish it wasn’t so long until their June wedding at the Barns of Kanak in Prince George VA next year but I’m happy I have these golden hour portraits to hang onto until we get more golden hour ones at the Barns!
So until June 2022, enjoy some of my favorite photos from their Pleasure House Point Park engagement session!
