Greg + Emma’s Charming Barn Wedding

Storm clouds had threatened days and hours before Greg + Emma’s barn wedding in Charlottesville. It was one of those days that spring showers could roll in any minute or just roll by.

I’m thankful the rain just rolled by that day as the mountains and sky looked extra blue. It was just the right amount of sun and breeze for a charming outdoor wedding.

A few favorite moments from Greg + Emma’s wedding day:

  • For Greg and Emma’s first look, they had their dog, Scout, join them. As Emma walked up the hill to Greg, Scout couldn’t contain herself to see Emma too.
  • Emma’s cousins can SING! And that they did. A special performance was had at the reception as they sang “A Thousand Years” for Greg + Emma.
  • Emma is from Kansas City and Greg is from Virginia so what is the perfect food for their wedding? BBQ! I love how they incorporated their “homes” into the food.
  • Speaking of food, a special surprise pulled up at the reception: an ice cream truck!

Congrats Greg + Emma — best wishes to you two!!

The Evans Family

Please excuse me while I melt over a little boy in a bowtie, suspenders and the cutest hat.

I met Jeremy and Jenna a few years ago when I did their engagement session. It was only right we visited the same park again to do their family photo session!

A Cityscape Proposal : Aaron + Alex

“I’ve been planning this for years.”
– Aaron

It was weeks prior Aaron called me about a surprise he had planned for his girlfriend, Alex. On a rainy May day, it would stop raining just long enough for a sweet proposal on Fahrenheit’s balcony overlooking uptown Charlotte.

By complete surprise, a dozen roses were delivered to Alex on the balcony with a card from Alex. After she finished reading the card, there he was, on one knee with a question of forever holding the loveliest ring.

A yes and a night full of smiles with friends started these two off on a new chapter.

Wedding Outtakes : Siblings

One of the best parts of photographing a wedding is getting to know the family and close friends that form the tightest support circle for the bride and groom.

These are often the ones that can’t stop smiling (or help letting a few tears flow) during the ceremony, the ones that have the unforgettable toasts and often, very often, the best dancers at the reception.

More times than not, these people come in the form of a brother or sister.

Here are a few of my favorite wedding “outtakes” of siblings being, well, siblings!
