to the church and took their seats as the bagpipe player played outside. The weather was perfect and the golden light poured through the old stained glass windows at Hebron Presbyterian Church.  Jill and Buddy were about to make a huge promise to each other in front of the friends and family that loved them most. After the bridesmaids walked down the aisle, the doors closed and anticipation rose.  A few seconds later, the doors opened and Jill walked down the aisle, clutching her dad’s arm and trying to hold back the tears.  Weddings are beautiful.  Everyone loves them and we all know what to expect…. the vows, the rings, the kiss, etc.  However, I’m pretty sure I speak for most people when I

Virginia Farm Wedding Photographer

  • Buddy + Jill | Part I

That’s the perfect word to describe this wedding celebration.  I’m sitting here and I don’t know what to say.

But you gotta do what you gotta do! Right?! Right.

The "R" Word

  • Wedding Wednesday

I’m editing…. ALL DAY LONG. And I’m really into it. I haven’t eaten lunch, I haven’t left my office (except to get a DMD) and I FORGOT to BLOG!! What?! Yea…. that really happened.

However, it is Wedding Wednesday and I don’t want to leave you hanging…. so here is a little post about the “R” word….. RAIN.  No one… and I mean NO ONE wants to even mention the “R” word on their wedding day!
