Chelsea & James met while working Fire-EMS and this past New Years he proposed in London! They chose to have their 10.01.16 wedding at the Kyle House in Fincastle, VA. I love these two; they both have this infectious joy that had me smiling and laughing all day! Take a look below at some of my favorite moments from the day <3 ...
PS - the food at the Kyle House is insane; they had these chicken mashed potatoes that I have been dreaming about. Think about that concept for a minute, CHICKEN-MASHED-POTATOES.
Melissa & Scotty were married 9.24.16 in an outdoor ceremony at their home in Caldwell, WV. These two went from friends to best friends to soul mates and they are so in love with each other. Melissa was one of the absolute most stunning brides I have seen and her detail shots are some of my favorites! She really took the fall themed wedding and ran with it. When it came time for their bridal party portraits, Melissa told me about a nearby pumpkin patch that she really wanted to go to. As soon as the ceremony ended, we all jumped in the back of their friends truck and headed over there. The pumpkin patch made for some of the coolest photos, not to mention the sun was setting right as we were there and the light was PERFECT.

Amanda 'Mande' & Trevor got married at The Barn at Back Creek (Buchanan, VA) on September 17th, 2016. The whole day greatly emphasized the importance of family and how love truly blends two families into one. One of the most special moments to me during the day wasn't just when Trevor and Mande said their vows to one another, but when Trevor said his vows to Mande's son, Ashton; and presented him with his own ring. Later, Ashton gave a speech and vocalized how happy he was to have Trevor as part of his life (I cried - not surprising for people who know me).
A lot of times at weddings we let the day become overtaken by little details; the music, the dancing, the beautiful flowers and decor. Yes, these are all very important aspects of a wedding - but as a guest don't let them overshadow how incredibly beautiful the small moments are. Look for the way that the bride and groom glance at one another when no one is watching or watch the old couple dancing cheek-to-cheek. As a photographer these are the moments I am always looking for and weddings have become a whole new meaningful experience for me.
I hope you enjoy the pics! xRead More
