Last year was a different year with my business…after welcoming Brynna early in the year, moving, and slowly renovating our house, I only took on a select few weddings, and it was the best decision. All of these couples are so near and dear to my heart, and I absolutely LOVED the time I was able to spend with each of them, and I was thankful I didn’t spread myself too thin. I still walked away from the year with hundreds of favorite images, so I pared it down as best I could. :-) I’m excited to share some of my favorite Wedding Day images from 2016! Enjoy!
I just love this little family! I first met Erin over 3 years ago when she was assisting at a wedding I was 2nd shooting. We became friends, and we have photographed a number of weddings together since then, despite the fact that we live over 2 hours apart. :-) We’ve also photographed each other’s families a few times, so it was a joy to be able to capture this family again! I hadn’t met their youngest, Penny, and so it worked out perfectly to meet up with them right after Penny turned 1. I drove out to Harrisonburg and spent my evening with this sweet family. Enjoy some of my favorites from our time together!
It was a Friday night last fall, when Amelia opened the door to their home and found candles, rose petals, and notes scattered throughout the house. As Austin waited for her on the porch, Amelia picked up each card along the way, reading so many things that Austin loved about her, from silly to serious and everything in between. When she finally got outside, Austin knelt down on one knee and asked her to be his wife, and she couldn’t wait to say yes!
