One of the best parts about being a wedding photographer is capturing the love story between two people – the way they look at each other, the little moments that share who they are. But what I’ve come to find in the last few years as a wedding photographer here in Virginia and throughout the US is that bringing together my brides and couples to celebrate together is an even more exciting part of what I do. Getting to see them laugh together, swap stories from wedding planning and get to know one another is so exciting!
This past year, I hosted two events for my brides and my couples. In the summer, I hosted a brunch at The Liberty Tavern in Alexandria Virginia for my beautiful brides. We were able to enjoy the AMAZING food at The Liberty Tavern while chatting about the stress and joys of wedding planning! The brunch was the perfect way to celebrate all of these beautiful ladies.
Over the holidays, I hosted a holiday party for my couples at a new venue here in Fredericksburg, VA: 718. The night was filled with dancing, yummy food and lots of great conversation about planning and married life. I loved getting to work with other local Fredericksburg vendors to make this night come to life for everyone who came to party!
Getting to celebrate and see my couples and brides outside of their wedding day makes my job so much more fun when the big day arrives. I feel like I really know my brides and grooms and their celebration is even more meaningful to capture! I’m already looking forward to many more events in 2018 to bring my brides and grooms together!
