James and Sara Tie the Knot!

Weddings are such a fun time for everyone involved. From the venue owners, to the vendors, to the guests, and above all the beautiful couple that are joining their lives together! This day marks the beginning of the rest of their lives together. It is a day that you can never get back. I am honored when a bride and groom choose me to play such a huge part of their day. I capture the memories that they will look back at for the rest of their lives.

Sara and Jame’s wedding was held on October 17, 2015 at the BEAUTUIFUL Cloverdale Barn in Winchester VA. The day was a COLD one and the rain decided to start just as the ceremony began, but that did NOT put a damper on things! The wedding was Beautiful, the location amazing, the love between these two just as sweet as ever. And with the sweet touch of adding their two Great Danes to the wedding party, everything was just awesome!

I had such an amazing time shooting this wedding along side my second shooter Ravyn of Rave Imagery. I can not wait to shoot more weddings with her this year!!! 🙂

Here are some highlights from the day!!

Something Old, Something new, Something borrowed, and something blue….the blue heart was from her grandfathers old shirt!
