In early June, we traveled to the beautiful Maison Beliveau Bed & Breakfast in Blacksburg, Virginia for Amanda & Davey’s wedding. From the smallest details to the hilarious dances, it was so fun to get to know Amanda & Davey’s personalities throughout the day. While the rain forced everyone into a small shelter during the ceremony, the whole wedding party stood outside under umbrellas, making for an incredible ceremony that I will never forget.

I hope you enjoy a sneak peak of their special day!

    Victoria - You manage to make anything look absolutely beautiful, even a rain soaked ceremony! Love it!

Emily & Greer were such a fun and amazing couple to work with. You can tell these two are super close with all their friends and family, and especially their wedding party. They just know how to have fun together! I loved how the day was full of all these little candid and authentic moments and small details. From their gorgeous outdoor ceremony at Airlie Center to the hilarious moments in the gardens and at the reception, we had a blast capturing their special day.

I am so excited to see the rest of your work- you are so incredibly talented and I will recommend you over and over to anyone looking for a videographer!!! Thank you so so much!

Whitney & Peter are an amazing couple, and we had so much fun running around Prince Michel Vineyard in the gorgeous weather! We found many awesome locations throughout the property and even a prop (the heart..which made a really awesome shot). While their wedding is not until next October of next year, I was so excited to work with them this soon. It was truly an awesome day and I cannot wait to work with them next year!

I hope you enjoy the teasers! :]

    Josh Gooden - Thanks everyone! :]

Shelly & Eric were such a fun and unique couple to work with! The beautiful ceremony was held at the gorgeous Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in downtown Richmond. Having witnessed the cathedral for the first time, we were blown away with its incredible architecture and details (this led to many fun steadicam shots:)). After the ceremony, we walked through downtown Richmond shooting fun moments with Shelly & Eric and our favorite photography team, Jodi & Kurt, from Jodi Miller Photography. After a two hour break (their ceremony was early), we headed to the Richmond Omni for the reception, which was fantastic!

I hope you enjoy a sneak peak of their day!

    jenny - GORGEOUS! love that song :)

    Sharon Ramos - I was an attendee at Shelly and Eric’s wedding. This a brilliant and beautiful video of their amazing wedding. You made the Cathedral look even more majestic than already is. I love the capture of the details and how everyone just looked they had a blast. I can’t wait for you to capture my sister’s (Isabel) wedding in September!

    Victoria - You did get so many good Cathedral shots! Gorgeous video!

It is the little moments that make each couple and each story so unique. When Jessica’s father contacted me from North Carolina and told me of Jessica & Kenneth’s plans to have their wedding in nearby New Market, Virginia, I was extremely excited by the opportunity to film there, but meeting the couple was even more amazing.

I am always a bit nervous about meeting a couple for the first time, but these two were a dream to work with. From riding across the property on the back of a golf cart to the hilarious interview, we had so much fun capturing their special day.

I hope you enjoy their highlights!
