Best of Weddings 2019 | Virginia Wedding Photographers

Wow, how is it already the last day of 2019? I’m sure I’m not the only one saying how fast this year went, but man, it really went by fast! One of the reasons is because we have a 2 year old that keeps us very busy all.the.time, but another reason is because of our photography season this year. Although we have always specialized in being Hampton Roads Virginia wedding photographers, this year took us much further out of Hampton Roads than we expected! We got to photograph weddings in Virginia, Outer Banks North Carolina, Upstate Rochester New York and Las Vegas Nevada! Due to the amount of travel we logged, we purposefully took on less weddings this year than in past years and we’re so thankful we did because, phew!

As we look back on our 2019 wedding season, we’re so thankful for our amazing couples and the trips we got to take to capture their big days. Some of the images from this year are some of our favorites we’ve ever taken. Never did we expect that we’d be asked to journey to New York or Nevada for a wedding, and yet, we checked off both this year! We’re thankful for the trust that our couples have had in us to make long trips for their wedding days. As we prepare for 2020, we’re sad to say goodbye to our 2019 couples (for now). And as their families grow, we hope we get to capture the next chapter of their love story for them too 🙂

Happy New Year everyone! Thank you for your support in 2019!

Bridal Details:
A time where I get to slow down and start the day on a creative foot. Photographing a brides details is such a sweet time because there is so much thought that goes into all the little details that I enjoy capturing those details for our brides to remember them by. The flowers will wilt, invitations will be thrown away and her dress will be stowed away, but the photos of her details will live on in her wedding album forever.

Getting Ready:
Those “oh my goodness, I’m about to get married” moments. Also, don’t our grooms just look awesome in black and white getting ready photos?

First Looks:
Bride & groom, father & daughter, bridesmaids & bride – we love them all! The excitement and emotion that comes through during first looks is such a sweet thing to capture and we always count it an honor to be a part of theses special moments with our couples.

Inside or out, under sunny skies or in the rain under a rainbow, here are just a few of our favorite ceremony photos from this year.

Pretty much our time to let our brides, grooms and their bridal party’s really shine. And boy, did they!

Although we don’t always include reception shots in our Best of Weddings recap, we couldn’t help but include some in this year’s blog because of our amazing couples. A few of them had choreographed dances (which were amazing) while others had emotional moments with their family members. We loved these receptions and the memories captured there.

We hope you enjoyed this year’s Best of Weddings 2019 post! We certainly enjoyed this wedding season and all the places it took us this year.
