Ali and Brad grew up a mere 30 minutes apart. They lived their lives just miles apart, but didn’t know their soul mate was so close.. it would take college and the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries to bring these two together. Brad and Ali were studying fisheries respectively at JMU and VT and were brought together with a summer job. While for most of us, handling fish and running numbers wouldn’t necessarily spell out summer romance, it did for these two…
A huge thanks goes out to my sister Katie! I was 38 weeks pregnant and on modified bed rest for low fluid, as well as the maid of honor in Ali’s wedding so Katie did a lot of the pictures!! Enjoy my many favorites of my sweet friend since high school, college roommate through all the years, and bestie despite living across the county from each other!
Katie did an awesome job shooting the first look for this excited groom and bride! Love these images she captured!!
Gorgeous location for a beautiful couple!
I love the candid on the left! Magical with the trees
I feel like Katie needs her own website for this wedding! She did such a good job!
Loveddddd the old quilts at the ceremony site!
An outdoor reception was perfect with for this couple, we were so glad the weather behaved!
I was dying to take pictures despite being hugely pregnant, so after the ceremony I stole them away to capture these…
Huge thanks to Katie for helping with posing and “dress fluffing”
Ali’s dress was stunning!
Seriously one of my favorite and possibly best images I’ve taken to date!
Ali you are seriously gorgeous!!!!
Loved this grove…
Seriously the light was magical!
We busted out these portraits in all these cute locations in a mere 30 minutes!
This field was awesome!
True life: my roomie is stunninggggggg!!!
More of Katie’s images! She’s the best! She let this pregnant photographer put her feet up at the reception!
I’ll end with my sweet friend Callee (loved being pregnant together with my elementary school bestie!) and I bumping the bride! So blessed these girls are such great friends!!
