I took a hike with my family along the Appalachian Trail section located in Bluemont, VA. Part of the trail diverts along another windy path which led to this lovely waterfall scene located in what is known as “Hollow Brook”.

Wedding Photography – Steven and Denise in Toms Brook, VA

150425_Steven_and_Denise_Wedding-611_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Ceremony – Saint Peter Lutheran Church | Reception – Piccadilly Public House & Restaurant | April 2015

The Details: Military weddings are some of my favorite to photograph. Why? The dignified uniforms, spending some time with people who served our country and how everything is on time and where it needs to be to name a few reasons.

Engagement Photography – Chris and Lindsay at Blandy Farm

150329_Chris_and_Lindsay_Engagement-064_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Blandy Farm / State Arboretum, Boyce, VA | March 2015

The Details: With a super cold and rough winter behind us, I was glad to get out in some nice warm “spring-ish” weather and do an engagement session for Chris and Lindsay who picked one of the favorite local spots, the Blandy Experimental Farm. Every time I come here I find something new…this time it was a nice rustic looking barn shed tucked away back by some trees.

Wedding Photography – Drew and Kate at Historic Rosemont Manor

150102_Drew_and_Kate_Wedding-886_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Historic Rosemont Manor, Berryville, VA

The Details: Snow. Ice. Negative temperatures. Brutal wind chills. That has been the gist of this winter season in the Shenandoah Valley area…one of the coldest winters I have ever experienced. Yet somehow, some way, for Drew and Kate’s January wedding Old Man Winter gave this super nice couple a break and allowed a bit of reprieve on this early January day. The weather was so nice that Drew and Kate were able to have their ceremony outside at one of my favorite venues, the Historic Rosemont Manor (and with the ever-professional Michael Haymaker coordinating I knew things would go off without a hitch). The reception was also a blast led by one of the area’s best DJs, the ever-popular Rich Rohn!

“Aaron is a true professional and the photos we received from our wedding demonstrated that fact. We were extremely happy with the quantity (over 1800) and quality of the photos we received. Even the outtakes were beautiful. We would definitely recommend his services to any bride!” – Drew and Kate T.

Wedding Photography – Bryan and Veronica at River Creek Country Club

141227_Bryan_and_Veronica_Wedding-724_FINAL_large

Location and Date: River Creek Country Club, December 2014

The Details: One of the benefits of having a wedding shortly after the holiday season is that all the pretty lights and decorations are still on display, adding a little bit of extra “magic” to a couple’s special day. This was the case for Bryan and Veronica. River Creek Country Club was fully decked out for the holiday season, and the magic of Christmas carried over to this awesome couple’s wedding ceremony and reception.

Wedding Photography – Reggie and Kristin in Chantilly, VA

141108_Reggie_and_Kristin_Wedding-0690_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Westfields Marriott, Chantilly, VA | November 2014

The Details: There are two things that jump out to me when I recall Reggie and Kristin’s wedding from this past year. One would be how important children were to their wedding…most notable being their precious flower girl daughter who ran to wait with her father as her mother was about to make her way down the aisle. Second would be how much fun everyone had at the reception. The dance floor was packed and I am fairly certain that every single person there danced at least one time!

“Thank you so much! These pictures are beautiful. Reggie and I are so glad that we found you to capture our special day. You guys were professional, considerate, and above all super talented. Thank you so so much. We will definitely be recommending you to our friends and family.” – Kristin and Reggie

Location and Date: Strasburg, VA | October 2014

The Details: I have known Jay and Emily for a long time…ever since I photographed their engagement session and then their wedding. They have been part of countless other weddings I have done, and it has been a pleasure of mine to see their lives progress together as time has passed. This time around their photo session included their newest member of the family…a precious little girl who was an absolute joy to work with.
