Best of Weddings 2017 | Rowlands Photography

It’s here, it’s here! It’s time to recap our best images from our 2017 wedding season! We’re looking back at all of our beautiful weddings with our amazing couples and picking out just a few images from each portion of the day and highlighting them. Guys, it was so hard to narrow down our favorites for this blog because there were so many beautiful moments this year that we loved. However, some images stood out more than others and I think you’ll see why as you scroll.

2017 is a mere three days from coming to an end and we can’t believe how this year flew by! Though I feel like we will continue to say that as the years pass, this year truly felt like it went by in a blink of an eye. But what a year, right? I’m not sure about you, but we had a wonderful, exciting, monumental year and, truthfully, we’re a little sad to see it go. We had the great privlege of photographing 16 weddings from April through November all across Virginia. Sixteen weddings and sixteen wonderful couples that we had the privilege of serving this year. Though we couldn’t be more excited to serve our 2018 couples, we are a little sad to say goodbye to our couples from this year because they were truly amazing. We truly have the best job in the world and it’s all because of them.

Without further adieu, take a look at some of our best wedding shots of 2017!

These precious, holy moments are some of our favorites to be a part of.

First looks are always one of our favorite parts of any wedding day. Whether a bride chooses to do a first look with her dad or with her groom, that moment is one of the most emotional moments of her wedding day.

In case you’re wondering, we definitely cry, behind the camera, with you.

We love when we get to take individual portraits of the bride and of the groom. They typically occur right before the ceremony and this is the time when Michael and I get to ask, “how do you feel?” Though everyone has a different answer, our favorite answer to hear is, “I’m ready.”

We were blessed with some amazing bridal parties this year. Not only are they super fun, but they also all clean up so well. Blush pink seems it will always be a wedding favorite, but we absolutely loved the color schemes we saw in some of our weddings this year.
Dusty blue, red wine, navy blue & ombre pink; we can’t wait to see what 2018 brings!

When the night comes to an end and our couples have their grand exits, sometimes, if we’re lucky, we end up capturing magic.
