The Fall Middleburg Wedding | The Briar Patch

  • Matt + Rebekah

I have to apologize. This post is SO late! It’s like 4:30 and I’m just now getting this up! Well, there is a reason it has taken me ALL day to blog this wedding…. I LOVED IT… and I have a million favorites and I really should narrow them down but I just can’t! Matt and Rebekah are such an amazing couple.  I have never shot a wedding where a couple’s family friends were so openly vocal about how these two need to be married! They’re perfect for each other and everyone is aware of that. After their pastor announced that they were officially husband and wife, guests started cheering. People rejoiced with them ALL day and celebrated their new marriage! These two were married on Sunday at the Briar Patch in Middleburg, VA.

WHAT WILL I DO?!!”.  And because Michael is much more calm than I am, he was smart enough to check the weather and found out that the rain was supposed to stop around the time portraits would begin…. and that’s exactly what happened. However, it was still FREEZING!! After the ceremony, the bridal party loaded up into their giant stretch Escalade and headed to University of Richmond where almost all of them went to school.

Boston, New England Wedding Photography

  • David + Deborah

This post took longer  than normal to post because it was like I was posting a full, real wedding!! There are just so many that I LOVE! So several months ago, during the summer, I get an email from David. He asked if there was ANY way I would be interested in flying to Boston to surprise his wife with a portrait session. Now, this wasn’t going to be any normal portrait session, it was more like a “day-after” session.  They were going to get back into their wedding attire and recreate images to remember that special day! …. and that special day happened 5 YEARS AGO! You may be thinking, what in the world?! Why go to all the
