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.
Last spring, I attended the V.A. Photography Workshop at Tuckahoe Plantation in Richmond. The venue is gorgeous and the workshop was amazing. As part of it, V.A. Photography owner Ashley organized a secret garden wedding inspiration shoot. It was cold and damp, but that didn’t stop the beauty of this shoot from shining through.
The shoot, held in the gardens at Tuckahoe, featured a peach color palette with white paper flowers paired up with peach and pink florals, berry adorned desserts, candles, lanterns and more. It was the perfect inspiration for any bride seeking an intimate, outdoor wedding with a secret garden feel.
