Heritage Hunt Golf and Country Club Wedding Photography

150919_Patrick_and_Kathryn_Wedding-0591_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Ceremony: All Saints Catholic Church, Manassas, VA | Reception: Heritage Hunt Golf and Country Club, Gainesville, VA

The Details: All of the couples I photograph are in love…and the unique thing about love is that everyone expresses it a different way. Patrick and Kathryn expressed that love through sheer joy and happiness. They were both so genuinely happy to finally get to marry one another that they could not stop smiling or contain their excitement. Their families are also long-time friends so really everyone was excited and happy to celebrate this special day together. When people are that happy, it makes my job easy and all that much more fun to document the event for all of them to remember for a lifetime.

Cacapon State Park Wedding Photography – Tim and Caitlin’s Wedding

150824_Tim_and_Caitlin_Wedding-0521_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Cacapon State Park, Berkeley Springs WV | August 2015

The Details: Tim and Caitlin’s wedding (see their engagement session) was the first ever Monday wedding I had the opportunity to photograph. Why did they hold it on a Monday you ask? Well, for starters their wedding was a small intimate affair…only for family and close friends. Aside from the catering staff and the baker of the cake, I was the only other vendor there. That made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that they trusted me to document their lifetime event. The photos that follow are just a glimpse into their special day…

Wedding Photography at the Shenandoah Valley Golf Club – Stephen and Laura

150808_Stephen_and_Laura_Wedding-0762_FINAL_large

Location and Date: August 2015 | Shenandoah Valley Golf Club, Front Royal, VA

The Details: Every once in a while I have a wedding that I refer to as “perfect”. Now all the weddings I do are always fun and enjoyable…but for it to be a “perfect wedding”, everything must go right for me as the photographer. This means stellar weather, a great venue with great scenery, fantastic lighting and spots to take photographs at, plenty of guests on the dance floor, and on and on. It is not often I give out the “perfect” designation to a wedding…but Stephen and Laura’s wedding (see their engagement session) deserves that award in my book. Have a look through the photos and see for yourself…

Wedding Photography – Will and Alyssa in Sharpsburg, MD

150713_Will_and_Alyssa_Wedding-0581_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Ceremony: Holy Family Catholic Community Church (Middletown, MD) | Reception: Family Farm (Sharpsburg, MD)

The Details: I will remember Will and Alyssa’s wedding for quite a few things. First they both had one of the most moving “first looks” I have had the pleasure to photograph (you can see their genuine happiness in the photos as they first set eyes on each other the day of their wedding). Second, their reception was full of not only the traditional fun events (dancing, toasts) but a mixture of many fun games and activities (giant wooden life-size Jenga anyone?). Finally, in one of the more touching moments I have seen at a wedding, Alyssa’s father serenaded her with a lullaby from when she was an infant that he wrote…and had everyone join in for the final verse.

Wedding Photography – Dane and Lawren’s Adventure Time and Pokemon Wedding

150619_Dane_and_Lawren_Wedding-0618_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Ostertag Vistas, Myersville, MD | June 2015

The Details: Where to begin? I first met Lawren as bridesmaid at Chris and Jaely’s super awesome wedding back in June of 2012. So when she contacted me to photograph her wedding I was super excited as I know it would be another fun group to work with. Well the word “fun” does not do them justice. This wedding was just awesome. Why? Let me list the ways: Adventure Time and Pokemon theme, stunning scenery at the Ostertag Vistas, a laugh-out loud fun wedding party with a zany sense of humor, nice summer time weather…I could go on and on and on.
