One of the things I love about this job is how it takes me all over! On Friday I was shooting a blush wedding in Downtown Hampton, then the next morning I was driving into the mountains for Ethan and Anisha’s wedding in Lexington! Just wait until you see the backdrop that they not only got married in front of, but also danced the night away alongside!
Some weddings are just so easy. The people are joyful and so easy to get along with, the details are lovely and easy to photograph and the venue, light and everything in between work together so well! Celia and Clint’s wedding was just that! The whole day was such a breeze- even with a downpour right in the middle of the day!
My first double header wedding weekend of the year is a wrap! Well, not technically a wrap because now starts the real work- the editing!! This weekend was full of joy, excitement and peonies galore! My heart is full and feet are tired! Here’s a quick recap of this past week!
When Rising Tide Society was first founded 2 years ago, I was interested from the get go. So I started the process of creating and leading a local chapter along with some other fellow creatives. Since then, we’ve had monthly meetings where creatives from all over Hampton Roads gather together to discuss business, network and most importantly- form a community. We now have over 700 people in just our local chapter and it’s growing every day! Watching businesses flourish and genuine friendships form as a result of this community is just surreal!
One of the great things about having a wedding photography business while still living in the area where you grew up is that you get to photograph weddings in your hometown!! Leigh Ann got ready at her parents house which is in the neighborhood right next to my parents house! And their reception took place where we used to take all our prom and homecoming photos in high school! What a fun blast from the past!
Happy Monday, friends!! This is one of my favorite times of year where summer really kicks off! High school proms and graduations, beach and pool lounging days, summer concerts and more! Not to mention summer weddings galore!! I can’t wait to show you guys Leigh Ann and Josh’s glam blush wedding from this weekend! Keep scrolling for a few sneak peeks! And here’s a few thoughts and happenings from the weekend!
