Jen and Scott's Bristow Manor Engagement Session!

I recently had the pleasure of meeting up with Jen and Scott for their engagement session at Bristow Manor in Bristow, Virginia!  We had such a blast riding around on golf carts to various destinations on the property, and even got to bring their dog, Brody, in for a few photos!  It was a perfect blue-sky day, much like today, and I thought Jen and Scott coordinated fabulously with the bright colors!  Jen and Scott, thanks so much for spending your engagement session with me!  I can't wait for your wedding later this year!  Enjoy! j&s_bristow_engagement_photos_01

Down to the Details - Jeamy and Luke's Style

A major aspect I loved about Jeamy and Luke's wedding was that all the details, specifically the color choices in all those details, were so pulled together.  I personally am a huge fan of neutral, earth-tone colors, and when I can I like to add a hint of color to offset those neutrals (i.e. my website).  Jeamy & Luke's style totally reflected my taste in colors, and they carried it throughout everything.  From one of the first images I shot, you can see there's a nice, clean blue color used to accent the flowers.  Then you see that blue accented in the wedding programs they made, but then also begin to see hints of golds and oranges in those as well.  Move on to the table decor and you see nice white linens and light brown napkins combined with those punches of oranges/golds/blues.  Then, in the last few photographs, you can see how Jeamy incorporated the orange/neutral brown in her shoes, and carried the orange in her bouquet and Luke's tie (not to mention neutral tones for the gals dresses and the guys ties)!  Match those up with the natural greens from the flowers and then the scenery outdoors and it just makes my artistic heart go pitter-patter!  Jeamy and Luke, you did a fantastic job, my friends!  Enjoy the photos below! j&l_nokesville_wedding_3

Jeamy and Luke's Bristow Manor Wedding!

On Halloween weekend I photographed Jeamy & Luke's wedding out in Nokesville, VA at Bristow Manor Golf Club!  I've been to this location before, so was excited to return, especially since it's somewhat out in the less-built-up part of Northern Virginia.  We were dodging rain most of the day, but all in all, it was a great time!  And who can complain about the rain when you get images like the ones below, particularly the first one?  Where there is rain, there are clouds...and in this case, really amazing ones at sunset!  I hope you enjoy the two below!  Thanks to Jeamy, Luke, and their incredible friends and family for a wonderful day! j&l_nokesville_wedding_2
