Northern Virginia Wedding on a Sunny Sunday Afternoon


It’s hard to believe this gorgeous day started out as a backyard wedding! Then it evolved into such a beautiful celebration of love. Hanna and I first got into contact because we actually bought our wedding dresses from the same boutique(Sage Bridal)! She had the most beautiful vision for her summertime wedding day. These two had the most perfect midday celebration and ceremony and the light poured over them in the most perfect ways. Their love was evident in every photo. And, every time they saw each other the biggest smiles creeped across their faces. This was definitely what weddings are all about. Celebrating your love with those closest to you, being present in the moment, and lots of Dunkin’ <3

Their getting ready photos are truly some of my favorites! There was so much light, the beautiful river right nearby, and lots of dark wood to compliment the lavender and white tones all around. Highly recommend the Woodlands for your northern Virginia wedding!!

One of my personal favorite parts of the wedding day is always the first look. You can see all of the stress melt away and watch the excitement for what’s to come bubble up! And, with a first look, you get twice as much time for portraits which means more photos overall! Win win for everyone 🙂

After they went straight into their ceremony which was absolutely stunning. They partied the rest of the afternoon away with their friends and family and it was absolutely a delight.

I’d love to capture your northern Virginia wedding! Get in touch here if you’re interested in working together!
