Did you know that bridal sessions don't just have to have the bride? That's right, it's totally acceptable to get dressed up with your groom before the big day! In fact, it's very common in LDS weddings because often times weddings are scheduled in the middle of the day and don't offer ideal lighting situations.
Heidi and Patrick were sealed in the Washington DC Temple on the most beautiful sunny day! I couldn't believe how blue the sky was and how the perfectly placed clouds made it look like it was painted! The temple grounds were filled with exotic flowers and it was the perfect backdrop for such a sweet couple.

Isn't this family beautiful!? They are a blended family of 8! They were so much fun to work with and I loved their Carolina blue, navy and white color palette!
I had the best time with Joyce Anne and Mike at their First Landing State Park Engagement Session! I love engagement sessions because I get to know the couple and talk all about how they fell in love and what they like to do together.
You won't want to miss hilarious moments and find out how Mike intercepted an arranged greek marriage. hahah!
Brittany and Jared were a dream to work with. From the moment I sat down with them, at their consultation, I wanted them to book me so badly. More than love, they have such a sweet friendship at the foundation of their relationship. I had the chance to get to know them better at their Engagement Session and also through questionnaires that I sent out before the big day. Here is what they had to say!
Daniel met Jessica, at their church’s singles ward, six long years ago. She was successfully finishing up the last two years of her dental hygiene degree in Richmond. She caught many of the single guys’ attention, including Daniel, for many reasons. In the words of Daniel, “She was committed to her faith, kind to everyone, fiercely loyal to her friends and family, and absolutely gorgeous!”
Now that Martha and Joey are married, I can share her gorgeous Byrd Park Fall bridal session! (Be sure to check out their Gaie Lea Wedding HERE). Choosing a few images for this post was extremely difficult because she looked so stunning! I may or may not have delivered 300 final images. Yowza!
There I was....photographing a wedding at the Washington DC Temple and waiting for the couple to exit....
The sweetest blonde girl came up to me and told me she was engaged and asked for a business card. We had a great time chatting and she went on to tell me that she was my previous bride's roommate!
We've been waiting all year for Martha and Joey's fall wedding at the beautiful Gaie Lea in Staunton, VA. I say "we" because I was photographing their wedding while my husband, Justin of Gibby Visuals, was filming it. We LOVE working together! It's like an all-day date ;) As parents of two young children its rare that we get to spend the entire day together! We will take it any way we can get it!
Cheerful Yellow and Green Wedding | Washington DC LDS Temple Wedding and Chesapeake Noah's Event Venue Reception | Abby + Todd
When Abby's mother first reached out to me about photographing her daughter's wedding we immediately had so many connections. I have known Abby's grandparents for years and two of my past brides (Shelby and Kim) referred them to me. I loved seeing all the friendly faces at the Washington DC Temple and at the Chesapeake Noah's Event Venue!
