This vintage park wedding by Holly Cromer, Photographer is so sweet! The soft florals combined with vintage touches really make for a special event. The setting of a state park created the most beautiful backdrop for their day. So lovely!

Here is a little bit about what Sarah had to say about the planning of her wedding day…

When we first started planning our wedding, Chris and I had very different opinions about our “dream wedding.” I wanted a small, immediate-family-only, wedding while Chris imagined something much larger. While a large wedding wasn’t what I wanted, I didn’t want the wedding day to be “my” day, I wanted it to be “our” day. I knew Chris deserved to have as much say in wedding planning as I did (and boy did he!). We sat down and each listed the three things about our wedding day that were most important to us. For me, it was the invitations, the flowers, an overall cohesive look/feel, and my dress (I cheated and picked four things). Chris cared most about the food (especially the cake), providing good times for guests, and sweetly enough, he also cared my dress because he wanted to make sure I felt beautiful.

How sweet, and I love how they compromised and also took the time to talk to each other about the most important things about their day. Chris and Sarah will both be able to look back and reflect upon a perfect day that incorporated both of their ideas. Take a peek into their wonderful day!

For some engagement sessions, a walk in the woods is the way to go. The beauty of nature as a backdrop serves to really highlight the couple as is the case with Clay and Mary’s e-session by Jane Bradley Photography. Jane utilized the beauty of the outdoors and found areas with benches and fences to utilize in such fun ways. I also know Clay and Mary, and they are super sweet… and so is their photographer, Jane. I hope that you enjoy this lovely woodsy e-session today!

Virginia is full of such beauty, and the Lynchburg area has such a selection of venues and properties that showcase just how gorgeous it is! One such venue is the upcoming Bella Rose Plantation, which will make its debut in 2015, yet Alysson Copeland Photography saw it as the perfect place for Trey and Karen’s engagement photos… and we agree! From intimate walks to cute moments of kisses, take a peek at their plantation e-session as you also experience the outdoors at Bella Rose.

We are also hosting our upcoming photography workshop at Bella Rose, so just click here to find out more about our amazing time of learning and photographing.

When two people marry, they become a family… add in a pet, and that is even more true! I adore this Virginia, dockside e-session by Fowler Studios. It’s so fun that they incorporated their dog, plus I love that it is a coastal engagement session. It offered so many options for their engagement session. They also included their love for their alma maters and favorite football teams. Who doesn’t enjoy a good rivalry?

Here is what photographer, Susan Fowler had to say about the day.

Will & Mallory live in Columbia, SC and are planning their wedding in Virginia where they both grew up. They chose his parents backyard for their engagement session for obvious reasons- it’s a gorgeous location tucked away in Seaford, Virginia… and they have their own dock! He graduated from UVA, and she graduated from College of Charleston. He played baseball in college, and their puppy is named Davenport after the baseball field at UVA! Dav, as they call him, was included in the session as well.

I hope you enjoy this lovely session today!
