I'm a published wedding and portrait photographer located in a small town outside of Charlottesville. In addition to capturing beautiful images, I love spending time with my family, am freakishly good at word games (Hey Wheelmobile!), love an ice cold can of Coke or Dr. Pepper, know every line to Hocus Pocus and can never pass up a Chick-fil-A waffle fry or a trip to HomeGoods.
I recently had the opportunity to participate in a Fredericksburg wedding styled shoot at Belvedere Plantation. I’ve been visiting the Plantation since I was a young child, usually around Halloween to pick out the perfect pumpkin, so I was delighted to find out that they’re now hosting weddings. I imagine brides will love the location, since it offers a great location for a rustic, farm-style wedding. This particular shoot featured vintage farm details including an antique truck, which I’m kind of obsessed with, gorgeous fields, fabulous dresses, great table settings and more. Enjoy this first post from the shoot which features a gorgeous bride and her bridesmaids, along with a few of the details.
