We are back to work after a fabulously romantic 10th anniversary trip to the Big Island of Hawaii! I have loved my time on Maui, Oaha and especially Kauai in the past, but this was my first visit to the Big Island and I’m so glad we went! While we were there, we had the opportunity to shoot bridal portraits on the Kona side of the island. Here are several images that I had the chance to edit on the plane back home. Look for more in the coming weeks!

Isn’t Laura stunning?!?

I’m excited to show off this shoot at Lake Frederick that I photographed last month! We had the best team of wedding vendors come together to pull off two different themes for this gorgeous venue. This theme was “Rustic Chic in the Garden” with sweet spring colors in the Garden Terrace of the lodge. Many thanks to our beautiful real couple, Deborah & Julio, as well as the gorgeous bridesmaids, Morgan, Elise & Jordan.

This shoot at Lake Frederick tucked between Winchester and Front Royal, VA was a blast to photograph! We had the best team of wedding vendors come together to pull off two different themes for this gorgeous venue. The first theme was “Romance on the Lake” with rich dark tones to give a romantic feeling for our beautiful real couple, Deborah & Julio. Thank you to the fantastic vendors for creating such a dreamy setting!

When Logan & Taylor booked me for their Cinco de Mayo wedding at Boydville, The Inn at Martinsburg, I was ecstatic! Not only is this couple straight up model status, but I haven’t photographed a full wedding at Boydville since they opened. Lots of bridal portraits, boudoir photography, family portraits and a vow renewal/bridal show, but no real weddings from start to finish (well, almost finish!). I was bummed when we woke up to rain all day and especially the thunderstorms and torrential downpours that night, but looking at these images, I am thrilled with all the ridiculously gorgeous shots we were able to capture! Boydville provided the perfect backdrop for amazing wedding photography and I can’t wait to go back! Be prepared to ooh & ahh out loud when you look at these 😉

Funny personal story (sorta, lol)… They only had us there for a little bit of the reception, but I really wanted a closing shot for the end of the night and so I offered to come back for 10 minutes to capture their sparkler exit since it is right down the road from us. I didn’t anticipate a full on thunderstorm, though! As I came out my front door and was going down my front steps, a huge crack of thunder came down super close to our neighborhood. It scared the bejeezus out of me and I somehow slipped and fell (queue the laughing… it’s okay). I heard something crack/pop really loud and thought it was my camera that I was idiotically carrying in my hand, but nope, my camera was high above my head safe and sound (just drenched!). It ended up being a torn ligament and that is what the loud crack/pop sound was (and yes, of course, I still hobbled my way to the car to go get the shot). I’m just happy I didn’t break my favorite camera!

Most people had umbrellas to stay dry if they wished, and the steps are covered so the wedding party stayed dry once they made it to cover. I loved the mood it created.
