CrossKeys Summer Wedding with Megan and Alex

Summer CrossKeys Vineyards Wedding

July 1, 2022

Megan and Alex’s CrossKeys Vineyards Wedding was the perfect start to Summer! With temps around 80 and a slight breeze, their outdoor ceremony was a beautiful start to such a beautiful marriage.

About the Couple:

When asked about their spark, Megan responded with “There are a lot of people I have met in my life, but none of them have helped me along through my struggles like Alex has. He is my rock, someone who is always there for me through thick and thin. Even in the dark times, or times where I don’t feel like myself, he is always acting selflessly to help me through the darkness. For him I think I have helped bring him out of his shell, to show him not to be afraid to try new things, be vulnerable, and to trust other people more. I am very bubbly and outgoing, and he can be quite quiet and calculating. I think together we bring out the best in each other and are exactly what the other needs.”

About the Venue:

“Nestled in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley and surrounded by the lush greenery of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, CrossKeys Vineyards is an immaculate location to host the destination wedding and reception of your dreams. With the elegant style of a Tuscan villa, a gorgeous bridal suite, and many spaces to accommodate your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, our estate vineyard wedding venue provides the perfect ambience for your special day.”

WHY we're the perfect match:


As a wedding photographer, my priority, is capturing your experience in an authentic light. But more than that, it's making sure you spend time with people - YOUR people - and that THOSE moments are captured. When it comes to your wedding day, I'm an efficient photographer WITHOUT compromising quality, and truly feel that is what most couples need during their wedding experience. I want you to be able to run (not walk) to cocktail hour, dance to the Wobble at your reception (if you're into that), and not have to rush around on your wedding day. For 95% of my couples, we get photos done EARLY and you're free to party with your people right afterwards.

When you hire me as your wedding photographer, you hire a fun sense of organization with timeline prep, efficiency, and an overall sense of servitude for you and your guests on your wedding day.

She goes above and beyond in everything she does.


"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.

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