• Oliver + Carley

If I remember correctly, Oliver and Carley were the very first couple to officially book me back in August of last year.  I had some other weddings in the works but they were the first to sit down and actually book for the following summer! Needless to say, I owe them a HUGE thank you  for trusting me at the beginning stages.  I’m definitely still in the beginning stages of my business but I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for awesome couples like Oliver and Carley! Thank you! Thank you!


Oliver and Carley were married last Saturday.  It was a very HOTT Saturday but we knew to expect that.  We joked during their engagement session that Oliver was going to melt wearing a tux in July! Luckily, I’m happy to say, he made it! .. and he still looked sharp as they made their grand entrance into their reception! Not only was their entrance grand, the reception was unbelievably gorgeous.  They hosted their reception at Fredericksburg Square in downtown Fredericksburg and it was stunning.  Everyone danced the night away and had a blast.  There is a picture of Oliver and Carley towards the end of the post that describes their relationship so perfectly. Oliver had just finished doing or saying something ridiculous and Carley couldn’t stop laughing.  This seemed to be a common occurrence between the two of them and I love being around couples like that.  They’re so happy and it’s so genuine.


I wish you two the absolute best.  You guys are wonderful and you are going to have an amazing life together! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Beale!

I couldn’t decide which ring shot I liked best… so when that happens..I just post both!

Carley’s dress had BEAUTIFUL details!

Oh this is a favorite!

I think the main reason I posted this one is because Oliver is holding the bouquet so nicely.

I couldn’t resist posting these “daddy/daughter” shots. Rita and I actually went to school together…a LONG time ago!

Love it.

    […] kinda funny when I think about it.  I totally forgot about all the connections between Oliver and Carley and some of my other couples! At their ceremony, I was standing quietly at the very front of the […]
