You guys. Even four months later, I am still pinching myself that I had the privilege to photograph this wedding!!! Rheanna + Pat set a date of September 21st for what was sure to be the wedding of the damn decade, and I was ALL IN. They chose to get married at Patrick’s family property in Catharpin, Virginia. Patrick grew up on this land, and it really is the most idyllic setting for a wedding. When it comes to variety in scenery, its got it all – woodland forestry, sweeping fields, a gorgeous barn, perfectly lit wooded areas, and a pond with the perfect amount of mossy growth on top. It is a photographer’s dream! Aside from all that, I knew that with Rheanna’s creative mind & Patrick’s woodworking ability, the event was going to be stunning and THEY DID NOT DISAPPOINT. Every single table, wooden box, wooden sign, table covering or other wood element was BUILT BY THE GROOM WITH HIS OWN TWO HANDS. His expert craftsmanship was such a big part of the event, and I have never seen such a beautiful reception set up.
I feel like I have turned over a new leaf – two posts in as many days! Today, I am sharing some of my favorites from a sweet family portrait session with one of my favorite families! The Donovans hit the golden hour jackpot with their session this fall, and I was squealing in delight throughout the entire session, AND as I was editing. We met up at my favorite location (Silver Lake Park, of course!), with the best weather, most beautiful light, and the cutest little baby. What more can a photographer want?! Here are just a few of my faves:
One of my favorite babies turned one back in September. I can’t believe I haven’t shared these portraits yet! Orrrrr really anything at all in this space over the past several months. I have a ton of content headed your way, including maybe the most beautiful wedding, sweet newborns, fun families, and the cutest holiday session. I’ve been away so long that at the time of these photos Taylor was a new one year old, and now she is almost 18 months old, and has a baby sister on the way! Here are some of my faves from Taylor’s first birthday portraits!
