Morgan and Chuck’s wedding at the Frontier Culture Museum in Staunton, VA was such a wonderful day! I knew when I had so much fun during their engagement session in Washington, D.C. that their wedding would be even more of a blast — I was right. In case you missed their dreamy sunrise engagement session, you can check it out here!

Their day was absolutely gorgeous — from the decorations, the weather, and of course, the bride. Morgan was a seriously STUNNING bride and was just an absolute joy to work with, along with Chuck and their wedding party. ** special shoutout to their bridal party for being absolutely wonderful to work with! Fun bridal parties make formals go so much smoother, and these folks were willing to do anything I asked of them.

One of my favorite moments of the day was getting to capture Morgan’s bridesmaids & mother pray over her. There’s something that speaks volumes about the love of God that signifies marriage, but also friendship. I felt so blessed to be able to capture such an intimate moment between Morgan and her favorite ladies. What a beautiful testament to the love Jesus has for us.

The reception was an absolute blast and I wasn’t even on the dance floor, so I cannot imagine the fun happening right in the midst of the dancing. It’s incredibly difficult to not dance to Cotton Eyed Joe and the Cupid Shuffle at every wedding, but honestly from now on I’m making it a thing. Future couples, you’re now getting a photographer with awkward-to-decent dance moves (depending on how much rosĂ© I consume).

 

 

Morgan and Chuck,

Thank you for the absolute wonderful honor to be the one that captured your special day. From beginning to end, I found it almost impossible not to smile. You two are an absolute WONDERFUL couple to work with and I am so happy we connected. Here’s to the first few days of marriage and spending your honeymoon in MEXICO! Cheers 🥂

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. Working with her was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend her!
