Megan & Alex – Traditional Chinese Wedding

I had an amazing time at Megan and Alex’s traditional Chinese wedding! We started off the day with traditional Chinese wedding games, followed by the tea pouring. I really loved capturing how important all these rituals were to this family. Afterwards they had some gorgeous first look portraits and a beautiful ceremony. Then after the ceremony the sky opened up and it stormed on us for over an hour while we were supposed to be taking portraits!! Luckily, the rain only lasted a short time, and we were able to find a back up location and I was so relieved to snap some amazing wedding party photos! Finally we went into the reception where a 12 course meal was served! Amazing! Megan and Alex were almost completely occupied the entire time receiving well-wishes and gifts from their friends and family. I loved hearing and seeing how special this couple is to their family, and was so happy to capture it all for them :).  Thank you so much to Kurulay of 1001 Angles Photography for second shooting.

Michelle & Jason’s Irvine Estate Wedding

I just loved working with Michelle & Jason from day one. Michelle was so excited to work with me, as she had been following my work since were English majors at UMW! She was so enthusiastic about taking as many photos as possible, and I loved it! On top of all this, their venue was the best one I went to all year! Irvine Estate was amazing! A gorgeous wooden house situated on the edge of a mountain. The ceremony space was an outdoor deck overlooking the mountain. It couldn’t get more gorgeous! In addition to that, Michelle and Jason had some of the sweetest details to commemorate their day. I can’t wait to share these, and thanks to Melodie Ann Photography for second shooting!

Amanda & Daniel’s Vintager Inn Wedding

It was such an honor to be apart of Amanda and Daniel’s afternoon wedding day! Amanda and I have known each other since 8th grade, and when I first received an email from her I was excited! I love working with clients I’ve known for a long time already! When the day arrived the weather was perfect! It was around 70 degrees and sunny! The Vintager Inn was such a great location, complete with a big red rustic barn situated next to some vineyards. The barn was one of the most gorgeous reception spaces I’ve ever used. The barn doors were open, flooding the entire space with natural light, and the inside was nothing short of charming. I’m always so lucky to have such wonderful, easygoing clients, and Amanda and Daniel certainly were! They even wanted to grab a few quick sunset shots after their exit! I loved working with them and enjoyed with a few friends from high school, some of which I haven’t seen since graduation in 2008 (now I feel old)! Thank you to Amanda and Daniel for being awesome, and I hope you enjoy these photos!

Monica and Chris’ Rustic Farm Wedding

 This wedding turned out to be at one of my favorite venues all year. A gorgeous log cabin and lake right next to a field with a barn as a backdrop for the ceremony. It was a private residence so if anyone else loves the location and wants to get married there, too bad; it’s not available :(! Monica was one of the most easy going brides I’ve worked with, and she was so fun to work with! Also, love afternoon weddings! Thank you to Monica and Chris for being so fun and easy to work with, and to Melodie Ann Photography for second shooting.

Susan & Carter Virginia Country Club Wedding

These two are just the best! Susan and Carter live in Los Angeles, CA and decided to have their wedding with their family in Virginia. Susan is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met, and from our emails, I couldn’t wait to work with her! We weren’t sure when or even if we would be able to have an engagement shoot since both Susan and Carter would need to be in VA. However, a friend of mine recently moved to LA, and this summer I planned a trip to visit him. Lo and behold, Susan and Carter less than a mile from his house! So thanks to this trip, we were able to squeeze in an engagement shoot! Not only did I get to finally see the west coast, but I got to shoot the most amazing engagement at El Matador State beach in Malibu!

After that I couldn’t wait to see them both again on the East Coast for their beautiful Virginia wedding at the Evergreen Country Club. Most of the day was overcast, which was surprisingly perfect for these two.  Carter was telling me how much he missed the rain and how in SoCal they barely get it a few times a year! The evergreen club was beautiful and ceremony was in front of a golf course with a backdrop of mountains! When Susan walked down the aisle, Carter could not contain himself! They had some of the most beautiful vows I’ve ever heard, and I was so happy to capture these moments for them. During portrait time at this wedding, it was drizzling the whole time! Thank goodness for camera weatherproofing, but it couldn’t have been more perfect! Absolutely loved every second of working with these two and their enthusiastic love for each other is evident in these photos! Thank you to Melodie of Melodie Ann Photography for shooting with me.
