I met Heidi at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester, VA during a bridal show where she and her family were checking out vendors for her upcoming summer wedding. We instantly clicked, and I enjoyed every second I was able to talk to her, her mother and future mother-in-law! Ryan’s mom had me tearing up telling me about the intricate proposal that he had planned out involving an intensive scavenger hunt. I knew right away that this couple HAD to be mine! Even though they initially had another photographer do their engagement session photography, I was ecstatic when Heidi contacted me to meet up with her & Ryan to look at wedding albums at their new home in Stephens City. They added an engagement session on their wedding collection, and we brought their super sweet and beautiful dog, Madison, along to join in on the fun!

Sebastien and Hillary had their wedding reception at the Shenandoah Lodge & Athletic Club at Lake Frederick in Front Royal, VA this fall. They were married in Canada (where they live) earlier this year, but wanted to have a special reception for all of their friends and family in the Front Royal & Winchester area. The details were fabulous! They cloaked the Events Center at the Shenandoah Lodge in gorgeous white fall decor, which matched the modern navy blue walls, exposed beam ceilings and dramatic chandeliers beautifully. They only wanted one hour of photography for some simple family portraits on the Garden Terrace just before sunset, but you know I had to snag them away for a few minutes to grab some beautiful wedding portraits of the two of them at this gorgeous location! The sun went down before I had an opportunity to get newlywed portraits so I captured some beautiful nighttime images instead on the lakeside lawn overlooking Lake Frederick. I absolutely cannot wait to come back to this amazing lakeside lodge to photograph a full wedding! So many ideas… !!!!

Here’s a quick sneak peek of my favorite image from Sunday’s wedding at Khimaira Farm in Luray, VA. It was pitch black outside, and we had to use flashlights to make sure we weren’t running into trees or holes in the ground while setting this shot up! To my surprise when editing this shot last night, we caught the Milky Way in the background! How incredible was that!?!

While it was SO hot that day, the skies at least gave us some breathtaking views, and Bowling Green showed them off well!

Phillishia, the event coordinator from Bowling Green, saved the day for these two by bringing out some drinks during the newlyweds session. She even decorated the golf cart with the pom-pom aisle decor from the ceremony!

We snuck out for one song during the reception to grab these beautiful sunset portraits. Even though you can’t see the actual sunset from Bowling Green, you still get amazing scenery against a wide open sky. Oh, how I LOVE sunsets! And these two fit right in…
