As a wedding photographer my style is unobtrusive, friendly photojournalism. I capture the spontaneous smiles, people living in the moment and details of your day as they naturally unfold. Your job is to relax and enjoy your wedding! My job is to document it for you to relive forever.

Engagement Photography – Jake and Elizabeth at Bears Den

140908_Jake_and_Elizabeth_Engagment-105_FINAL_large

Location and Date: September 2014 | Bears Den, Bluemont, VA

The Details: Elizabeth was familiar with my work as I did her sister’s engagement, wedding and maternity photographs, so she and her new fiancé Jake traveled all the way down from Pennsylvania to have me do their engagement session…which is quite humbling to me. We had a wonderful time hanging out on at the Bears Den area of the Appalachian Trail and enjoying some of the fantastic views of the Blue Ridge mountains.

Wedding Photography – Todd and Jackie at Lake Holiday

140906_Todd_and_Jackie_Wedding-464_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Ceremony – Winchester Church of God | Reception – Lake Holiday Country Club

The Details: For most weddings, I am usually traveling out of town…so it was nice to have a wedding very close to home. In fact, I only had to drive 10 minutes down the road for this one! Todd and Jackie (see their engagement session) were a joy to work with and could not have been more welcoming in letting me photograph all aspects of their wedding day. Everyone had a great time, and aside from a thunderstorm as the reception was winding down, the day was perfect.

“Aaron was able to capture so many wonderful moments at our wedding. Aaron has a wonderful vision and is very professional. Our photos were waiting for us by the time we returned from our honeymoon. I highly recommend Aaron!” – Todd and Jackie L.

Wedding Photography – Kris and Erica at Montdale Country Club

140830_Kristopher_and_Erica_Wedding-021_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Montdale Country Club in Scott, PA | August 2014

The Details: When I think back to Kris and Erica’s wedding (you first met them when I posted their engagement session this past winter) there were so many memorable moments that it is hard to list them all. There was the lovable ring dog Srappy Doo and a real fire truck that chauffeured the groomsmen to the ceremony and remained onsite for photos. There were bag pipe processionals and an unforgettable toast by the head bagpiper. There were fire helmets, a fireman cake and plenty of fire fighter guests who were ready to party and dance the night away. It was one of the most memorable weddings I have ever been to!

“After we reviewed Aaron’s photos we knew he was the one for our wedding. His pictures are relaxed and realistic and able to capture that special moment. His photos don’t look forced and you are able to see the couples true emotions. He also works well with your pets if you want them in your photos!” – Kris and Erica G.

Wedding Photography – K and C in Winchester, VA

140719_Ken_and_Cecy_Wedding-327_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Winchester, VA (Private Home)

The Details: K and C decided to have their whole wedding…ceremony, reception, dancing, everything at their own private residence in Winchester. They definitely know how to throw a party! The rain held off until just after their outdoor ceremony in the front yard and then the party started in the first floor of their home. There were bullet casing boutonnieres, a wedding cake baked by C’s grandmother and the DJ even spun the hit “Let it Go” from the Disney film, Frozen (which had every little girl and the groom on the dance floor singing at the top of their lungs).

“Thank you so much for such wonderful memories! You ARE the ninja photographer. My father was a photographer himself and I grew up with pictures being taken of me, no one else has made me feel so comfortable since then taking pictures! You are officially our family photographer. Thank you!” – C.

Wedding Photography – Tyler and Amanda at The Winery at Bull Run

140712_Tyler_and_Amanda_Wedding-403_FINAL_large

Location and Date: The Winery at Bull Run, Centreville, VA

The Details: When I did Tyler and Amanda’s engagement photographs last fall, I could tell they had a great love for children due to their loving and playful interactions with Amanda’s nephew Maddy. This gentle love was ever-present on their wedding day as well as many beautiful children had memorable roles during the wedding day…from cute guest attire, being the ring bearers and even helping give a reception toast!

“Aaron does amazing work! He has a great eye for what he does and how to execute it. My engagement and wedding photos are incredible and I owe it all to him. He is fabulous!” – Tyler and Amanda R.

Wedding Photography – Billy and Holly in Easton, MD

140628_Billy_and_Holly_Wedding-933_FINAL_large

Location and Date: River House at Easton Club, Easton, MD

The Details: Billy and Holly’s wedding was one of the most beautiful and fun weddings I have ever had the honor of photographing. The waterfront setting near the Chesapeake Bay was gorgeous, and the weather could not have been more perfect. Add in a group of family and guests that loved to have fun and nearly every time I turned around there was something unique and memorable to photograph. It was a wedding that ranks right up there in my all-time top 10.

“We hired Aaron for our wedding after he photographed our friends wedding and did a great job! He was priced very reasonably and he was very easy to work with leading up to the wedding. He took charge during the wedding and made sure that we got the shots we needed. The most amazing part was that we got a link to an online gallery and a USB in the mail with all of our pictures just two weeks after the wedding!” – Billy and Holly B.

Wedding Photography – Dan and Katie at Zion Springs Bed and Breakfast

140621_Dan_and_Katie_Wedding-695_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Zion Springs Bed and Breakfast, Hamilton, VA (June 2014)

The Details: Dan and Katie are both firefighters (yes…you read that right) and they told me during their golden-lit engagement session to be prepared to have a good time at their wedding when the date finally arrived. Well it wasn’t a good time…it was a GREAT time!  There were bagpipes, awesome scenery as a backdrop to the ceremony, a live band to rock the night away, great dancing and a good time had by all!

“These look fantastic! I have literally looked at them over and over again! I love them. I can’t wait to show our families.We are literally blown away, and thank goodness you were there to take all these wonderful photos because the day is a blur to me :-)” – Katie L.

Landscape Photography – Good Morning, Valley

140725_Good_Morning_Valley-025_FINAL_large

Location: Winchester, VA

I went for a walk early one morning and saw the sun coming up over the mountain. I did not have my camera on me so I made note of the time and returned to the exact same spot two days later to snag this photo. With sunrise photos the subject matter is the same, yet always beautiful and different each and every time.
