Blue Mountain Brewery Wedding | Ali & Austin

April 13, 2019

I’m so excited to have photographed Ali and Austin’s special day at Blue Mountain Brewery in Afton, VA! The rainy weather was no match for these two, and I think you can tell from how they completely surrendered control and nailed their portraits in the midst of the rain. When I asked if it was okay if we ventured outside into the rain, Ali’s exact response was, “SURE! We’re only here once!” I’m so lucky to have couples that risk getting their wedding attire soaked just because I see a photographic opportunity (and they trust me enough to do so).

As soon as I arrived, I was greeted with absolute love from both Ali and Austin’s family! It was such an honor to be able to get to know their families a little bit during this time, and I just adore getting to know the families that this sweet couple came from. Family is such an important aspect during a wedding day, and these two made it clear how impeccable theirs are to them.

One of my favorite parts of their special day was the immense amount of intentionality that went into Ali’s details! The veil she wore was her mother’s, and the bouquet was wrapped in mementoes from her grandmother’s wedding day. It makes my heart so happy to know how supportive the women in Ali’s life are, and even more important that she felt it was important to incorporate those details into her special day.

I am so incredibly excited for these two and the journey that comes at the start of becoming a married couple — congrats, you two!

 

Ali and Austin,

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for asking me to be your wedding photographer. I don’t take that responsibility lightly and am so grateful for the chance to be able to interact with you two and your families in order to capture your special day. I hope you enjoy your sneak peek and cannot wait to send you the final gallery! Enjoy!

WHY we're the perfect match

WE ARE SOULMATES

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

"Her excitement about being our photographer was contagious."

From the first meeting, we knew Andrea was an experienced photographer who was also warm and bubbly, which is the perfect type of person to have around you on your wedding day. She was extremely helpful with answering any questions we had, and was very responsive. Andrea is incredibly organized and efficient. She captured the best moments and got all the shots we wanted without making it feel like the photography was taking over the day.
