Before I dig too deeply into the wedding day, let me start off by giving you some background information. I have known Tony for many years – long before a camera had even graced my hands. When I decided to start this photographic journey, Tony supported me through my early stages (when my portfolio was pretty lame). So, after photographing the couple’s engagement session
The wedding day started off bright and earlier at a photogenic salon called, 2 Dye IV Hair, in Stafford, VA. The ladies were extremely friendly and carried on funny conversations that would have been more appropriate around female photographers! Nevertheless, they were entertaining to be around and welcomed me into tight nooks and crannies, which allowed me to pursue my creative vision, drama-free. Huge thanks, ladies! Their testimonials can be read through my photographs.
If you’re wondering where the ceremony and reception were held, go here. The venue will not disappoint; everything went smooth as butter thanks to Rev. Will & Dr. Jo Anne Cannon. Afterwards, the partying and celebration went long into the night at a local bar in Stafford. I documented a pretty good portion of it and joined in on the festivities, too.
Tabitha and Tony, I had a blast and it was an absolute pleasure being there to photograph you two. The events that unfolded touched my soul in a way that I can’t even grasp or explain. I wouldn’t have chosen to have been anywhere else on that beautiful day.
My friend, Bruce, came along and captured a contrasting perspective of the day. A handful of the images in this post were taken by him, including the photos of the guys getting ready. Thanks, Bruce!
Prepare yourselves for some freshly baked excitement! Over the past few years, I have teamed up with my talented wedding photo journalistic friends from Philadelphia, JPG Photography for some incredible collaborations. If you like what you see in this post, be sure to stick around for more. This is just the beginning of many great things to come.
Today, I bring to you the free-spirited couple, Melanie and Paul, photographed in a location completely new to me and my camera – Brooklyn, New York. We jammed to DCFC as we drove through the city, searching for sweet locations. Need I say more?
See you two next week in Philly!
P.S. The third photo from the bottom…definitely one of my top five favorites of the year.
Keep it natty.
