Richmond, Virginia Wedding Photographer | Anania Wedding

Boy, am I happy to be able to share this wedding with you all! 

I had the privilege of capturing Darius and Kate's wedding last month in Richmond.  After wrapping up all the editing over the weekend, I don't think the day could've gone any more perfectly. There were just so many things that I love. I love being from Richmond.  I love Overcast days. I love fall. I love goofy and spunky couples that are so in love with each other that I'm almost invisible.

Lynchburg Wedding Photographer | Toliver Wedding

I'm really excited to have the opportunity to share the Toliver Wedding on my blog! 

I attend church with John and Kristi in Lynchburg at Lynchburg Church of God - I've been attending there for about a year now, so I definitely saw the two of them often! Early this Summer, they asked me to shoot their wedding and I gladly accepted! 

One thing that was distinctive about John and Kristi's wedding was that it was completely relaxed, awesome usage of purple (which is Kristi's favorite), the details were absolutely on point, integration of their favorite sports teams (Duke), but also an atmosphere surrounded by their love for the Lord and their love for each other. 

I was super humbled to be a part of John and Kristi's special day! I definitely have to put their wedding on my list of favorites! I had a blast. Here are a few of my favorite images from the Toliver Wedding:

Venue: Temple Baptist Church

Entertainment: Jason Thomas

Florist: Morgan Stone

Second Shooter: Maria Lucas

 

O'Donnell Wedding

This has definitely taken far longer than I had anticipated, but I am really glad to finally be able to post a blog about this wedding!  I feel most comfortable with natural light so when I found out that this wedding was going to be taken place outdoors I was really excited about it!   

I second shot this wedding with Ashley of Ashley Wiktorek Photography on a pretty warm Sunday in September.  I had the opportunity to meet the Bride and Groom, Ryan and Emily the night before the wedding.  They were very relaxed and you could tell first hand that they loved each other! I knew the wedding was going to be a blast! 

Like always, I want to get started with some of the details!

Emily had a really beautiful dress.  I've never gotten detail shots of a wedding dress before, so I was really glad to have gotten these!

Simplicity was definitely a strong suit for their wedding! They decorated with Mason Jars and flowers! It looked amazing!

I absolutely LOVED how they had a carnival themed wedding. They had corn hole and cotton candy! How does that not scream fun?

 

Here are few of my favorites from the Bride and Bridesmaids getting ready!

Emily's nephew was about a few months old at the time of the wedding! He was so peaceful! ImageImageImageImageImageImage

 

Here are a few of my favorites from when Emily revealed herself to her father! It was very sweet! Their relationship is precious!ImageImageImageImageImage

 

I also loved Ryan and Emily's first looks! I just love how their excitement shows through these!ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

The bridal party was a very goofy bunch! You could tell that they all enjoyed being around each other!

Then of course there was the ceremony and the reception! This was definitely my favorite part (I mean, why wouldn't the wedding ceremony be your favorite part?)

The first dance was amazing! I feel as though the shots that I got from here were my favorites from the whole wedding! It was definitely hard to choose which ones I wanted to put here, so I practically included all of my edited ones!ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

 

I really liked the concept of doing the Father/Daughter Dance and the Mother/Son dance at the same time.  I feel as though it brought a lot of unity to both families! They danced to Ben King's "Stand By Me"  ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

 

I had a blast shooting this wedding! I wish Ryan and Emily the best!
