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 – Joel and Sarah in Old Town Winchester

141009_Joel_and_Sarah_Engagement-107_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Old Town Winchester and John Handley High School, Winchester, VA | October 2014

The Details: Joel and Sarah are life-long Winchesterites…or Winchesteronians…or Winchester…well, you get the idea. They grew up here, went to school here, live here and work here. They are also getting married here next summer. We spent the afternoon hanging out at the ever-popular Old Town section of Winchester, and then swung down to John Handley High for some photographs outside their alma mater.

“These turned out amazing! We love them all. Thanks again for all of your time on this. You are so talented! We can’t wait to see what the wedding photos will look like.” – Sarah E.

Engagement Photography – Tim and Caitlin in Berkeley Springs, WV

141007_Tim_and_Caitlin_Engagement-featured

Location and Date: Berkeley Springs, WV | October 2014

The Details: Tim and Caitlin are from Berkeley Springs, work in Berkeley Springs, and are getting married in Berkeley Springs. Even their go-to dating spot was the local theatre there in…wait for it…Berkeley Springs. They love their hometown and asked me if I could do their engagement photographs there, to which I happily obliged. We met at the local park on a beautiful October morning and hung out for an hour or so taking some photographs.

“Aaron, these turned out so beautiful! Tim and I had such a great time with you. We love every single one!” – Caitlin M.

Wedding Photography – Nick and Jillian in Winchester, VA

141004_Nicholas_and_Jillian_Wedding-431_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Ceremony – Nancy Shepherd House | Reception – Piccadilly Brew Pub

The Details: I had a real connection with Nick and Jillian from when I first met them. They are from Baltimore (like me) and fell in love with Winchester (like me) when they had one of their first dates here. They loved the historic charm of our town so much that they chose to have their engagement session AND their wedding here. The wedding was a really cool combination of both cities…a blending of Baltimore culture (Old Bay seasoning, Orioles paraphernalia and the ever-lovable Berger’s Chocolate cookies) with the autumn scenery of Winchester. It was a wedding I will never forget!

Maternity Photography – Eli and Jennifer

140919_Epler_Maternity_Session-009_FINAL_large

Location and Date: September 2014

The Details: Wow…where to begin with Eli and Jen. Ever since 2010 I have been photographing them for every major aspect of their lives together…from their engagement session, to their wedding, and now the impending arrival of their first child. They are friends rather than clients to me, and every time I see them I know it is always going to be a great time together full of photos and fun!

“AARON YOU ARE AMAZING! We love the photos. It is ALWAYS nice to see you!” – Eli and Jennifer

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.
