Brittany's Bridals

Maymont Park

This

session definitely deserves the “fairytale” title. I arrived at Maymont to photograph Brittany’s bridal portraits without ever meeting Brittany beforehand. As soon as I walked through the door of that little bridal room, I knew it was going to be a phenomenal day of shooting!! She was stunning and radiant and so full of life! Brittany’s joy is contagious and she’s one of those people that you feel happier after you leave her presence and I love that about her! Not only does Brittany have a radiant personality but she’s incredibly photogenic!! Photographer’s dream!! I absolutely loved my time with her back in the spring and it’s been hard to keep these a secret!

Blythe's Bridals

Bridal Shoot at Tuckahoe Plantation

I’ve said

this before and I’ll say it again, bridals are a lot of fun!! No stress, no time limit…. it’s just me, my brides and their closest friend or family.  Blythe brought her mom and sister along for her shoot and I’m always so thankful to have another set of hands! We walked around the beautiful grounds of Tuckahoe Plantation and followed the golden light.  We had a beautiful day for this. The temperature was bearable, the sun was shining and we had the venue to ourselves! Blythe couldn’t have been more stunning and I’m so thankful she was willing to do some crazy things in her dress!! I mean, standing in a barn with a dirt floor and

 

Melissa's Bridals

A Fall Bridal Shoot

Brrrrr….

this shoot was CHILLY!!! But you would never know because Melissa’s beauty is the first thing that captures attention! … No one notices the goosebumps! :) It was a chilly October morning when we shot these portraits and I was so impressed with Melissa’s ability to shiver AND look natural all at the same time!! She’s just stunning… absolutely gorgeous…. and she was my roomie in college!!! You’re all probably thinking “Katelyn, your friends are so photogenic” and my response to that is “Yes, I know”. haha They are! Whenever I shoot a friend’s wedding I think to myself  ”Self, you are surrounded by gorgeous people in your life!”…

Whitney's Bridals

Windsor Castle, Smithfield Wedding Photographer

Bridal shoots

don’t happen very often for me and so when I have one booked, I’m pumped!  It’s such a southern tradition and I know so many photographers in the Carolina’s that shoot them for EVERY bride! It’s a fun shoot but it does take some prep work for the bride and so I understand why most opt out of the shoot. I shoot bridal portraits on the day of the wedding but if you’re wanting a canvas displayed at your reception, a bridal session is a must! :) Whitney’s session could be described as “A piece of cake”. Seriously! We shot this session in record time because we had a late start and the sun was setting FAST!

Amelia's Bridals

A Rustic Country Bridal Shoot

The phrase

“rolling with the punches” comes to mind when I think about Amelia. This girl has had some CRAZY speed bumps along her wedding planning journey and she just kept on going.  Plans changed and new plans were made and her wedding day was perfect this past Saturday! So when her first bridal session got rained out, she didn’t blink an eye. We just rescheduled and made it happen the following week!  I met them close to where I grew up in Caroline County and we drove down some LONG dusty roads to find these locations. Now I’ve lived in this part of the country for 20 years…. and I have never even SEEN the roads we were on!
