Wedding Photography – Hunter and Lauren at the Barns of Rose Hill

141025_Hunter_and_Lauren_Wedding-634_FINAL_large

Location and Date: The Barns of Rose Hill, Berryville, VA | October 2014

The Details: I’ve been a wedding photographer in the area for 5 years now, so many of the venues around town I have been to more than once, so it was a nice change of scenery to have the opportunity to do a wedding at a different type of venue. The Barns of Rose Hill located right in little ‘ole Berryville was a wonderful setting for Hunter and Lauren’s wedding. It was such a pretty day and the weather could not have been more gorgeous for a late October afternoon. Combine that with some fantastic autumn wedding decor, a super cool friendly bride and groom and a ton of happy guests and it made for a great time for this photographer!

Engagement Photography – Tim and Sara at Blandy Farm

141020_Tim_and_Sara_Engagement-131_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Blandy Experimental Farm, Boyce VA

The Details: Sara lives right down the road from my house (unusual since I live on a mountain). Her and Tim got engaged and knew they wanted me to be a part of their wedding, which I am very thankful for! They chose the State Arboretum of Virginia (Blandy Experimental Farm) for their engagement session location. Blandy Farm is one of my most used photo locations because it is one of the only parks in the area that is pretty year round and also free to visit. I make an annual donation to the Foundation of the State Arboretum of Virginia (FOSA) to support this wonderful resource in our community.

Wedding Photography – Bradley and Allie in Strasburg, VA

141018_Bradley_and_Allie_Wedding-652_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Ceremony – Strasburg Presbyterian Church, Reception – Family Property, Strasburg, VA | October 2014

The Details: I have known Allie and Bradley for quite a few years…first meeting them at Emily’s wedding in 2010 (Allie was a bridesmaid). Then I saw them again at Kate’s wedding (Allie was a bridesmaid again) earlier this year, and of course for their engagement session last year. Allie and Bradley’s wedding was held at the same church, but their reception was held inside a barn at Allie’s parents property. It was one of the most well-done rustic decor wedding receptions I have ever seen…even more impressive is that the decorating and setup was all done by family!

“I’ve been in and attended multiple weddings Aaron has photographed. That’s why I knew the day we got engaged that he was the only photographer I trusted to capture our big day. I was almost willing to set our date around his availability! Aaron took our engagement and wedding photos and we couldn’t love them more. He is super easy to work with, very organized, professional, and incredibly quick in delivering the final package to you. All of this while being a great friendly guy. I would absolutely recommend anyone to use him because you will not be disappointed!” – Allie F.

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.
