Savana and Brady married over Memorial Day weekend in a beautiful, shoreside wedding ceremony at Lake Anna. They both got ready at The Seay Point House which was abuzz with wedding day activity when I arrived — family making hors d’oeuvres in the kitchen, the bride and her bridemaids getting hair and makeup in the great room, and the groom’s party tucked away in the media room. After Savana slipped into her lace gown with a gorgeous blush underlay and plunging back, she met Brady under a tree for their first touch. They shared a prayer while holding hands, exchanged letters, and the bride shed a few tears as her groom smiled.

Just a couple hours later, they walked down the aisle and said I do. I loved looking back through all the special parts of their ceremony — their pastor brought Brady’s favorite hat for him to wear, their parents joined them under the arbor, and just today I noticed that Savana’s dad held her hand tight as they walked down the aisle. These two are all about family and so it was fitting that their parents, brothers, sisters, niece, and nephews all stood by them during the ceremony.

Ever so fortunately, the rain held off until minutes before the newly wedded couple made their entrance into their tented reception! Whew! They held each other during their first dance with rain pouring down in the background and wind whipping through the tent. Savana’s reaction is priceless! After cake and cake-to-the-face, they danced the night away under the lights and lanterns. I’m so happy to have met these two and shared in their wedding day! Congratulations to Savana and Brady!

The second half of Sarah and John’s anniversary portrait session took place under the blossoming apple trees at The Barn at York Hill. As we were planning their session, Sarah asked if they could setup a picnic in the orchard. I love it when couples bring their own ideas to a session and this one was perfectly executed thanks to Sarah’s mom! She setup the picnic with a delicious cake just like the one from their wedding day and courtesy of Bijou’s Sweet Treats, and arranged gold-dusted macaroons and a champagne toast with their wedding flutes. Their reaction to the champagne popping is priceless! If you missed Part 1 of their anniversary portrait session, click HERE! Congratulations again to these two lovebirds on their upcoming anniversary!

In late April, I met Sarah and John at The Barn at York Hill for a springtime anniversary portrait session. We wandered all over the farm stopping at the same spots where we took their wedding portraits nearly one year ago! Sarah even carried a lovely bouquet just like the one on her wedding day! The weather was slightly uncooperative with a few sprinkles here and there, but Sarah’s colorful dress and the blossoming apple orchard brightened up their portraits! Not to mention, these two just look so happy one year later! I have so many favorites from this session that I split it into two parts! Be sure to check back next week for Part 2 including their picnic under the blossoms complete with champagne and cake! And if you’d like to take a trip down memory lane, you can view their engagement and wedding here and here! Congratulations to Sarah and John on their upcoming one-year anniversary!

Last fall, I met Becki and Chris at their house to kick off a roving engagement portrait session in the Shenandoah Valley. We drove to a nearby farm that they pass every day for a few photos at the barn and then ventured out to Lake Laura. It was a beautifully sunny day and even without leaves on the trees, the lake was the perfect setting for this outdoorsy, water-loving couple. I just love all the colorful canoes in the background of their photos!

Becki and Chris met years ago but reconnected in 2015. Soon after, she started receiving packages of deer jerky in her mailbox. 🙂 I’m pretty sure she knew they were from the new man in her life, but her daughter was ready to launch a CSI investigation to find out her secret admirer. 🙂 This past summer, Chris whisked Becki away on a beach trip and proposed! So sweet!

On a personal note, I’m so happy for this girl! I met Becki three years ago at my cousin’s wedding, and have taken senior portraits for both her daughters. Early on, I knew Becki shared my love of photos when she didn’t think twice about hoisting her daughter up onto a giant haybale just to get like two shots!

Congratulations to Becki and Chris! Can’t wait for your big day!
