I am probably on my way to Northern Virginia when you read this.  There is so much that I will have to blog about this month, and I just can’t wait to share everything with you all!

Our friends Loo and Aubrey got married late last month in Amissville.  Jason and I photographed their entire wedding on 35mm film, a first for us.  As soon as we receive our work back from the awesome Richard Photo Lab, I will post those images… so excited!

We are currently headed to Fairfax and staying at the Wesfields Marriott where JJ and Sarah’s wedding reception will be taking place.  I’ll be up tomorrow at the crack to hang out with JJ and the guys for a groom’s golf outing at Twin Lakes Country Club in Clifton.  Jason photographed Sarah’s brother’s wedding several years ago –  Ryan and Kelly… it will be great to see them and the whole family again!

We’ll be back in Charlottesville to photograph John and Keri’s wedding at Ash Lawn-Highland the weekend after.  These guys have been absolutely amazing to work with.  They literally scheduled their wedding date around our our availability… how flattering is that?!  They have three fun-filled days planned out for their wedding weekend.

Our third week of August will be Sejal and Kunal’s 4 day Indian wedding starting on Thursday the 18th to Sunday the 22nd!  Jason and I are obviously excited about this!  Saturday and Sunday’s celebrations will be taking place at the brand new Hilton Richmond Hotel & Spa in Short Pump.  The new hotel is stunning inside.  We love shooting there, and I have to say, their in-house shampoo and conditioner is the bomb.   I had to order my own bottles after using the hotel’s.

We’ll also have a couple of engagement shoots that you probably will see in September.  Please stay tuned.  In the meantime, I hope everyone is enjoying their summer.  Stay cool, stay hydrated and be safe out there!

The first time we met Preston and Elizabeth was just a few minutes before their rehearsal.  Jason and I immediately felt at home with them… they are just the nicest people.   I also fell in love with their flower girls and ring bearers!  They were so cute!  Preston and Elizabeth currently live in Birmingham, Alabama.  Preston’s passion is music, and Elizabeth wants to open her own yoga studio.

Their lovely wedding ceremony took place inside the historic Lee Chapel at Washington & Lee University where they both went to school.  The chapel’s event planner, Carolyn Tolley did a superb job of managing every detail.  After the ceremony, Preston and Elizabeth traveled by horse and carriage to their reception site at the Col Alto just a few blocks away.  Great appreciation and gratitude went to Southern Inn Caterers whose kitchen was destroyed by a fire the night before!  In spite of what happened, they made dinner happen, and it was great!  Thanks to Washington & Lee University for allowing them to utilize their kitchen for the day!
