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.
