brides practice in the dress

Don’t Forget Your Dress Practice!

  • Wedding Wednesday

This may sound like a no-brainer but if it was a no-brainer, I wouldn’t be blogging about it! There are a lot of brides who have NEVER put on their dress outside of the dress shop!! I was the weirdo who tried on her dress like every evening because I was so excited!! However, my dress was really easy to put on. I could put it on by MYSELF! It had one simple ZIP in the back and that’s it! However, there are a lot of dresses that require much more than just a simple ZIP! These are the dresses that I’m referring to today in this post!

Virginia Cliffe Inn Engagement Pictures by Katelyn James Photography

Wes + Lindsey | Engaged

  • Virginia Cliffe Inn Engagement Photos

Lindsey emailed me and mentioned that she had an idea for an engagement session location around the Glen Allen area and I was all ears! We’re used to spending hours on the road for engagements and this option would be just 15 minutes down the road!! What a dream! Well, it was exactly that. Wes and Lindsey led us to the Virginia Cliffe Inn and it was a perfect, quaint engagement session location! The house, the fence lines, the entrance, the porch! It was a perfect evening together and we were THRILLED that the rain held off for us!!
