Charmaine and Isaac’s wedding at Clover Forest Plantation in Goochland, Virginia has always stood out as a favorite of mine! From the gorgeous historic venue to the color combination to the flowers and all of the details, I just loved everything about their wedding. Virginia Bride Magazine was gracious enough to feature their wedding in their most recent beautiful publication which is hitting the stands as I write this! In addition to their story, the magazine also included an Idea Gallery section with detail shots taken at several of my weddings. Enjoy this sneak peek at the spreads and pick up your copy today! To see more images from Charmaine and Isaac’s big day, check out the full blog story.

Beautiful Silje was born on July 7th at 7 pounds and 6 ounces and her parents, Liesl and Mason, could not be more in love! Silje was 2 weeks old for this session and she was so much fun to photograph. I just loved how she would curl her knees in making her look like the cutest baby doll. Liesl and Mason have collected some neat antiques over the years including baby bottles, a toy rocker, some great furniture throughout their home. While happiest in her parents arms, she didn’t mind a few minutes in the dresser and the rocker!

While at Virginia Tech, Justin decided one day that he was going to find himself a wife. A few days later, he met Bryanna and the perfect match was made! Bryanna is not a fan of cooking, at all, but she started making Justin breakfast from scratch and has done so ever since. That is definitely love! For their wedding day, they chose Mariner’s Landing at Smith Mountain Lake because they loved being near the water and having those beautiful mountain views. Family and friends all traveled to spend the weekend at the lake together and even Bryanna and Justin’s sweet dog, Vinny, joined as the “Best Dog.” Bryanna is a photographer herself and I have had the pleasure of working with her. It was an honor when she asked me to document her wedding and I couldn’t wait for the day to arrive!  Bryanna looked so beautiful in her Aunt’s wedding dress that was altered to the perfect style for a summer wedding. There were so many sweet moments from Justin’s reaction during the first look to skipping down the aisle to jumping off the dock together! Enjoy!

With everyone living in a different state, this was a rare moment when the entire family could be together. It was also a special time because Bob turned 70 and a big birthday party was planned right after this shoot! To celebrate and have a family vacation, everyone stayed at Bernard’s Landing right on Smith Mountain Lake. We found the perfect sandy beach spot for their session. Enjoy and Happy Birthday Bob!

Crystal and Justin picked an amazing rustic, historic venue for their wedding day, the Kyle House in Fincastle, Virginia. It has the most amazing barn chapel filled with chandeliers and white paper lanterns. And the reception space is so beautiful with all of the old brick walls and wood beams. Crystal and Justin first met through friends after college and I love how they can laugh so easily together! The colors of the day were navy blue, yellow and gray which I thought looked perfect in the space. Crystal’s Mom, Lynn, had her hands full making all of the flower arrangements and decorating all of those pretty cupcakes! An appearance was made by a frog and a cat and at the end of the evening the guests piled onto a school bus headed for Roanoke, fitting because Crystal is a school teacher!
