These two had a beautiful winter wonderland wedding! It was not expected that it would snow when they planned it, but it ended up being so magical and perfect! The sun decided to pop out right as Rachel was walking down the aisle!

Abby | Revolutions Mills Bridal Session | Greensboro NC Photographer http://www.kiddphotographyva.com/blog/2018/2/abby-revolutions-mills-bridal-session-greensboro-nc-photographer It was a dreary day for Abby's bridal session, but the rain held off and we were able to use the gorgeous courtyard at Rev Mill Event Center. She has such a cute personality, which makes sense because she is a teacher. Isn't the back of her dress just gorgeous??

Brooke & Dimitri | Bella Rose Plantation Wedding | Lynchburg Virginia Wedding Photographer http://www.kiddphotographyva.com/blog/2018/2/brooke-dimitri-bella-rose-plantation-wedding-lynchburg-virginia-wedding-photographer When I met Brooke and Dimitri for the first time, I could tell they were going to be a special couple. They just had a sweetness to their attitudes that really made me excited to work with them. They have that old soul feel to them that is hard to miss. Brooke was very much about making sure everything went smoothly and just how she wanted it, which I knew it would with being an Entwined Events wedding. Despite the wedding being in the Fall, they chose to use pastel colors more prevalent in Spring, but it really gave life to the day and a soft feel to their wedding day. I am a sucker for pastels and pretty things, so I absolutely loved it and I always love when my couples do something unique anyway. These two had such a romantic day! I found out that Dimitri played the guitar during their engagement photos, so when I heard that he may write Brooke a song for their first look/no peek, I was so excited. I actually get that butterfly in my stomach feeling for moments that I know are going to happen, usually when the bride walks down the aisle, but this was one of those moments. (I can't help but get excited for sweet/memorable moments to happen!) As they stood back to back, they read their letters and then Dimitri played and sung his special song to her. It was such an intimate moment between just the two of them. They had a simple and short ceremony where they wrote their own vows. The grounds at Bella Rose really offer so many different backgrounds for your portraits. From the balcony to the front of the house, to the new Nelson Tree Co. treehouse, to the swing and winding walkways...it really is a great little spot for your all inclusive wedding day. Brooke told me that she felt so beautiful on her day, and that really showed in the pictures. I love hearing ladies tell me they felt beautiful, we put ourselves down so much. They had a fun reception in the mill house and Dimitri even did a little dance for Brooke before he retrieved the garter. The night ended with sparklers for a beautiful exit.

Samantha & David | Sorella Farms Wedding | Evington Virginia Wedding Photographer http://www.kiddphotographyva.com/blog/2018/1/samantha-david-sorella-farms-wedding-evington-virginia-wedding-photographer Sam and David had a rainy wedding at Sorella Farms, but it was still so beautiful! I love the subtle decorations in the barn that really bring out its romantic feel with the lights. Sam loves girly things and pink, which showed in her decor. Oh and I am in LOVE with Sam's shoes! The rain did not stop these two from having the perfect day. I always encourage my couples that just because the weather might not turn out as planned, you will still have great pictures and a memorable day!

Blake & RT | Sorella Farms Wedding | Central Virginia Wedding Photographer http://www.kiddphotographyva.com/blog/2017/11/blake-rt-sorella-farms-wedding-central-virginia-wedding-photographer Blake and RT had the most beautiful Fall wedding! I loved all of their decor, it was very Fall, but not your typical orange pumpkin wedding, which I loved. I love the fresh apples in their centerpieces and cotton and feathers in the flowers! They had such a sweet ceremony and despite racing the sunset, we got so many amazing pictures! It was a perfect day!

Brittany & Nick | West Manor Estate Wedding | Central Virginia Wedding Photographer http://www.kiddphotographyva.com/blog/2017/11/brittany-nick-west-manor-estate-wedding-central-virginia-wedding-photographer I wanted to talk a little about Brittany and Nicks day! I love how vintage Brittany's dress was, it fits perfect with West Manor. She had accents of navy, red, and gold with little arrows here and there. Gold sequin table runners and a long head table really stood out in the dining room. Brittany wanted a first look with her Dad in the bridal suite because she had seen me do this before, and of course we made that happen! He looked so happy for his baby girl! Brittany's grandpa has a bible he carries everyday from his own wedding that is tattered on the edges from wear, that Brittany carried for pictures and memories. Her grandpa was able to make it last minute even though he was having some health issues. They got married in the Atrium, which I think is my favorite ceremony spot. It is just so bright and gives a fun look to the photos. I think my favorite part of the day was when Nick surprised her at the reception, with not only a recording of him singing to her, but he played the piano to it as well! Just so you know, Nick didn't know how to play the piano, so he took lessons on the nights Brittany worked late and learned the song! I was so impressed and so was she, as you can see in her reaction! He was definitely nervous the whole day about it, but he did such a great job surprising her! These two are just so sweet and I am so happy for them and their marriage! I am so happy they chose me to photograph their day!

Kaleigh & Mike | West Manor Estate Wedding | Central Virginia Wedding Photographer http://www.kiddphotographyva.com/blog/2017/11/kaleigh-mike-west-manor-estate-wedding-central-virginia-wedding-photographer Kaleigh and Mike had such a sweet wedding day. They have a thousand friends too, which made it so fun! (Ok, not 1000, but they had 10 people each in their bridal party!) The girls spent all day relaxing and being pampered at the venue. They had mimosas and were all looking gorgeous! When it was time to get Kaleigh and her bridesmaids outside for pictures, we realized it was raining, so we used the atrium for their portraits which I absolutely love! It really made their burgundy dresses pop! Kaleigh then did her first look with her Dad, which was super emotional (she is definitely a daddy's girl)! We did the guys pictures in the atrium too, but by the time the ceremony began, it was just cloudy and perfect. They got married outside like they had hoped for. While we were taking romantic pictures after the ceremony, Mike kept mentioning how beautiful Kaleigh looked...so stinkin' sweet! The reception was nothing short of fun and a little crazy! Everyone was dancing the night away. They ended the night with a classic Dirty Dancing move and applause :) It was the perfect day!!

This DRESS!  Kaleigh's first look with her Dad was adorable! Kaleigh's veil fell out, but she just laughed it off like the sweet bride she was!! Kaleigh apparently is a great rapper to Lil' Wayne ;) "Magic Mike" did a fun little dance around his bride for the garter retrieval!

They had such beautiful weather for their day and their "weird" (as Sarah described it) personalities were so much fun to be around! Sarah and her girls ooh'd and ahh'd over the bridal suite at Bella Rose, which who couldn't? It is a dream. Sarah and Caleb read their own vows and had a quick, sweet ceremony. We used so many spots of the property for their portraits and of course had to go back out for night portraits under the Rotunda!

I love their blue and grey theme in their decor and attire. These two were both emotional during the ceremony, which really showed so much love and sweetness in their relationship! Lakendra was all about pictures, which was so great of course for me! We went out and had a great sunset session, which ended up being my favorite pictures. Their favors to guests I thought were so unique...they gave lottery tickets and cookies with a picture of them included in it. Their DJ had the party going all night with his flashback hits and fun dancing songs. It was such a great day for these two!

Lakendra had a fun dance with her Dad! And Eddie's Mom did a slideshow for him of his growing up! Sunset photos were perfect! She just adores him, as you can see! That sky! Hello bombshell! Gotta have a fun one!

Samantha & Marshall | Court Street UMC Wedding | Virginia Photographer http://www.kiddphotographyva.com/blog/2017/10/samantha-marshall-court-street-umc-wedding-virginia-photographer O my goodness yall! Sam seriously looked like a movie star. She rocked her ball gown. From the shoes, to the classic round bouquet, this day was so timeless and classic. I love Court Street UMC too. The rock is so pretty for a picture backdrop. Sam really wanted some inside portraits in the church, so we made that happen and they are so unique and romantic! I loved this gorgeous, timeless day! The best part was that they partied the night away after with their friends and family at Oakwood Country Club!

This church y'all! I love the architecture!  Sam wanted a rose petal exit from the church...it was perfect! Gah, she's gorgeous! Um, her veil was amazing! I love a cathedral veil.

I am so excited for Morgan and Josh. They are so sweet and relaxed. She is a nurse and he is a police officer, what a great pair! We went to the Peaks first and finished at their venue for sunset. The moon even came out to say hello! I love the twilight look in those images.

Natalie & Chad | Raven's Roost Engagements | Blue Ridge Parkway | Virginia Photographer http://www.kiddphotographyva.com/blog/2017/10/natalie-chad-ravens-roost-engagements-blue-ridge-parkway-virginia-photographer These two booked their wedding with me from out of town, so this was our first meet. We had planned on shooting at their venue, but when that got cancelled, we went with a place I had never used before, but thought it would be pretty! Seriously obsessed with their sunset images! Raven's Roost on the parkway is just a pull off spot, so no hiking had to be done, which was great! I kept telling them "in 5 minutes this light will be amazing". I probably said that 3 or 4 times, but the last time I was right. It was the prettiest glowy light you have ever seen! Enjoy this gorgeousness and stay tuned for their winter wedding coming in December!

This is where the magic started to happen! Seriously?! They are gorgeous and that light!

I will definitely be using this location again! Who's ready?

Luke & Jessica | Sorella Farms Evington VA Wedding | Virginia Wedding Photographer http://www.kiddphotographyva.com/blog/2017/10/luke-jessica-sorella-farms-evington-va-wedding-virginia-wedding-photographer Jessica & Luke had such a sweet day! Luke wore his dress blues while Jessica had a beautiful lace gown with a blush/beige tone to it. I think their florals were probably my favorite of this year! The pinks mixed with light/mint greens and pops of the popular marsala color were just breathtaking and a great transition to Fall without being too Fall. Sorella Farms is always one of my favorites to shoot at, with so many pretty natural aspects! The pond, the glowy backyard, and the fields looking over everything are just perfect. Luke and Jessica's dog, Bristol, was hanging out the whole day and following us around. It was so sweet (If you know me, you know I love dogs, especially pitties...so this was a treat for me!) I think the sweetest part of the day was their no peek hand holding before the ceremony, where they both were in tears with excitement to see each other and marry! The ceremony included a hand washing as well as a communion to unite the couple and their first kiss was hidden with Luke's "cover", which was so clever on his part! (I kept calling it a hat the whole day, but I got it right finally!)  All in all, you can clearly see the sweet love these two have for each other and they both had some supportive families and friends to celebrate with!

I always love shooting there because it can have so many different looks and themes and still look super beautiful and unique. Kristina and Zac got married at the main ceremony location under the pavilion. Zac is scottish, so him and his groomsmen wore kilts and they had a sash ceremony where Zac's mom presented Kristin with a sash of their family colors, which was so sentimental! I loved the beautiful red and blue pops of color brought by the flowers and the royal green brought out in the foliage and table runners. What a beautiful day! Kristin rocked her monogrammed chucks under her dress, such a cute touch. These two had a blast at the reception along with their friends and family.

You really feel like you are in your own little solitude of the county, sitting right on top of a hill with peeks at the mountains. These two decided on a first look, which I hadn't done in awhile. I love first looks because you see the first reactions of bride and groom without the pressure of a huge audience. They had some sweet time together to admire how each other looked and let the realization of the day set in. Another huge advantage of a first look, is that you can get almost all of your post ceremony pictures done, leaving your guests with less time to wait in between! We got all of their couples portraits done, and of course made use of the fire truck, since Richard works for the Fire Dept. We then brought out the large and fun bridal party to get those shots done too. The ceremony was so sweet and simple, with a large audience of family and friends. We did get to step back out for some sunset portraits during the reception and they had such a fun reception! What a nice new venue in Rustburg!

We ended her session in the fields, which is always my go to finishing spot with  the beautiful mountains and sky views. What a fun day getting to know Kristin and finding out how sweet and fun her and her mom are!

It was so romantic of a setting! They have such sweet personalities and really respect and love each other so much. It was a perfect day. Sweet gifts were exchanged between Cammie and her mom, consisting of a bracelet to wear for the day. Cammie's necklace was an heirloom passed down from her grandmother, that her mom actually wore on her own wedding day! Blake had Cammie's fingerprint engraved in his wedding band, made all the way in Paris...what a romantic touch! Blake and his groomsmen/woman had some fun with super hero shirts before the ceremony! You can just tell they are a close group of friends! This day was just filled with sweet moments!

(If any of you know me, it is my favorite drink) We piled in her maid of honor Kelsey's suv and drove about an hour to the Cidery one evening to do them. When we arrived we were given each a cider of choice to drink while we walked around the property. There were so many great spots that I didn't even know were there! I loved the overcast day that brought out all of the greens! Alyssa even got to go behind the bar for a quick fun photo! If you ever are in Nellysford, go check out the location!
