loving winter

Winter gets a bad rep. And it’s obvious why. It’s cold (most places). It’s dreary (not in California!). The trees are bare and the only flowers you see are the ones you have to buy.

But winter also means the turning of a season. It means snow (usually!) and it means warm fires, hot apple cider and movie nights. It’s one of those seasons that I always grin and bear, but it seems to go as soon as it’s arrived. And it always makes spring look pretty darn good!

So, although it’s February, and still very wintery in Virginia, I wanted to share one of my favorite styled shoots… you guessed it…from winter!

Elisa B teamed up with Stonegate Event Rentals and Sugar Magnolias {among a lot of other talented people} to create this styled shoot. It makes winter look glamorous + sexy. Almost desired. And before too long — the grass will be greener, the air warmer and even the flowers will start to bud. For now - I’m loving these photos and the warmth from within them.

So cheers to winter, and all that it has to offer!

congrats rebecca + justin!

It’s always fun to be involved in weddings that are outside the box! Loved being a part of this one… even if in the background! {check out the custom carnival flags flying high!}

the peppers!

When Lindsay reached out to see if we’d work with her on her April wedding… the answer, was of course, YES!

She’d created custom printed materials with blue and white seersucker print and wanted to carry it through the wedding. Lindsay even found the time to make seersucker pillows to throw on Stonegate’s lounge seating. Ben made Lindsay and Bradley a custom corn-hole set to have on their wedding day. I made bean-bags from, you guessed it, the blue and white seersucker  — and we had the UVA and Vanderbuilt logos painted on. The corn-hole set is now at home in Texas — a little reminder of their big day for years to come!

Congratulations to Lindsay and Bradley… Mr. and Mrs. Pepper! It was a blast working with you two. And if this slideshow is any sort of testament…it looks like your marriage is off to a wonderful start!

OH! And if you’re interested in more pictures…hop over to Patricia Lyon’s website for an amazing slideshow!

love birds!

I am working with Peter & Cheryl to plan their wedding this spring just outside of Charlottesville. They met up with Sarah Cramer to take their engagement pictures last weekend… How sweet are they?

Engagement pictures are definitely a fun trend. Not only do you get some great shots of you and your sweetie — you get comfortable in front of the camera so it’s not such a worry on your wedding day! Sarah is the queen of e-sessions… click below to check out her blog. It’s full of inspiring pictures of life & love.

{Special thanks to Cramer Photo for these beautiful shots, and to Stonegate Event Rentals for the Props!}
