A Charlottesville Wedding Gift

A Charlottesville Wedding Gift was created by Jack Looney. He puts together vendors from the wedding industry in Charlottesville to donate their services to create a dream wedding for a special couple. I was so thrilled to be part of this great team. This year Ande and Jeff were the winners.

This year the wedding took place at Early Mountain Winery.
Here is the list of the great talents who were part of their wedding day:

Dickie and Rachel from Just a little ditty
created magic with the decor and the planning of the day.
Southern Blooms, Harvest Moon, DJ Tobbler, Ian’s creations, Tourterelle Floral design, Swell Booth, Albemarle Limousine, Cakes by Rachel, Sacred Ground ceremonies, Stone gate Event rental, Rock Paper Scissors, Blue Ridge Lighting, Cville Make up, Awakening balance, Festive fare, Pallet and pen and Local Nanny Network and Rachel May photography.

Here are some of my favorite photos.

capturing life

This week I was lucky enough to photograph two different phases of life.
Meet Ashby is two-weeks old and Mrs.K. who is 95. Mrs K. had 9 boys, including two sets of twins and is still living at home with one of her sons and she swims everyday. A true inspiration.

Family portraits

It was so fun to spend some time photographing this lovely family. I am always so intrigued by twins. I love how often time their personality shines through their similarities. It is hard to believe these adorable little girls came early into the world. Wade is also the best brother they could wish for.

Fun engagement session in New York

I always enjoy when I get to meet my clients for engagement session in their home town, outside of Charlottesville. and I won’t lie, I love New York.
We had so much fun with Sarah and Matt. She was a trooper because the weather was chilly and windy. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding at Keswick Hall next summer.

Lovely romantic Fall wedding in Charlottesville

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure to photograph Ginny and Matthew’s wedding. It took place the First Methodist Church in Charlottesville and the reception was held at The Space.
Ginny and Matthew were one of the most romantic couples I have ever photographed.
