Logan & John | Married

"Family is very important to both bride and groom" was one of the responses Logan gave in her final wedding form.  From the encouragement and support I witnessed throughout the day I'd say that Logan & John are just as important to their family as their family is to them ;)  The ceremony was filled with funny stories, smiles, tears, and a beautiful prayers.  The reception overflowed with chatter and laughter.  Logan & John made special effort to visit guests in all three dining areas.  Signature drinks, natural greenery with gorgeous florals, classic navy suits, one of my favorite wedding dresses of all time, and even a visit from their pup Daisy!!  Everywhere I turned I could see that this couple was loved and loved in return.  It was a pleasure to spend a summer evening with this them and I'm honored they chose me to capture their day ;)

Ashley & Adam | Married

Adam & Ashley are huge fans of all things Lord of the Rings/Star Wars so they used that as their inspiration for their wedding decor.  Which could have been super cheesy, but they have great taste and pulled it off as the classy and beautiful affair that it was!!  Lots of ferns and greenery gave it the "a little bit elvish, subtly Lord of the Rings" feel that they were going for!  Ashley is a graphic designer and here is her description of the Invitation Suite she designed - "All the paper goods I've designed myself (putting that graphic design degree to work!), but the sigil design Adam and I created together. In the design, he put the sun, moon, Saturn, and the North star, arranged around the circle in the positions that they will be on November 15th at the time when we will be married! How romantic :)

Ashley & Adam | Engaged

Normally some rain or clouds on the day of an engagement session is slightly disappointing.  I love me at least a little bit of sun!!  But when your couple are big fans of old world movies such as Lord of the Rings, and they've chosen Virginia Tech campus for their session, everything comes together and creates photos that are perfectly them!

Amy & John | Married

It's really hard to write a summary of a wedding that was so much more than just a wedding.  For us it was an entire weekend, an entire month, of prepping and talking and travel and family!  For my sister Amy and her now-husband John, family and time together were the most important element of their wedding day.  If they were to be judged by the amount of family enjoying themselves on the dance floor that night, they would be rated a smashing success!  That's not to say the entire day was without it's tangles...
