Bridal Shoot : Leesburg, VA : Virginia Wedding Photographer

One of the great things about being a wedding photographer is having the opportunity to photograph couples after their wedding day, after the crazy planning, and after the hustle and bustle for a bridal shoot. This couple, Joe & Allison, are actually celebrating 6 years of marriage this month! So we decided to partner with some amazing local vendors, get Allison back in a gorgeous wedding gown and have a bridal shoot to celebrate 6 years of marriage together! Not only have those 6 years of marriage been some of the most happiest in their lives, Joe & Allison also have a beautiful daughter named Violet. So without further ado, here is the lovely couple…..Leesburg, VA Wedding Photographer, Wedding Photography in Virginia, Rustic Weddings, bride and groom, pink and orange wedding decor, outdoor wedding photos

Jesse & Nicole : Oatlands Plantation Wedding : Leesburg, VA Modern Wedding Photographer

As the impending storm clouds rolled in, Jesse & Nicole stood before each other in front of their family and dearest friends and vowed to become husband and wife. Despite the gloomy weather and the drizzle that would turn into a down pour as the cocktail hour began, laughter and joy filled the air! Smiles were on every face and love filled the reception tent. We often hear that rain on your wedding day means good luck; but with Jesse & Nicole, even though they got lots of rain, they don’t need luck. They have a deep sense commitment, love and respect towards each other that will sail them through any future storm.

Jesse & Nicole: It was an honor to photograph your wedding! You two make an amazing couple!

Be sure to check back on the blog in a few weeks. I’ll be heading back to Oatlands Plantation to photograph this bride and groom in their wedding attire on a perfect sunny fall day! Stay tuned because there will be more beautiful photos of this couple to come!

Zoe : Old Town Manassas : Northern VA High School Senior Photographer

Meet Zoe, one of the most unique and one of a kind class of 2015 seniors I know over at Westfield High School in Chantilly, VA. She marches to the beat of her own drum and it’s awesome to see. We spent an afternoon in Old Town Manassas, VA one weekday afternoon for her senior portraits and had an absolute blast. I love that she brought her vintage bike to include in her senior photos, making them even more unique!

After her photo session, I posted a quick sneak peek on Facebook. I LOVED what Zoe’s mom had to say so I figure I would share her words here with you: “Senior mom tears are flowing!!! Heather, you are AMAZING! This is a MUST experience, especially if you have a girl! Zoe felt beautiful and confident every step of the way and the picture shows it!! Thank you, Heather!” 

Did you catch that? Did you hear what Zoe’s mom said? Allow me to reiterate: A senior portrait session is a “MUST experience”! It is more than beautiful photos. It is about a high school senior stepping out and growing in confidence in who she is now and the exciting journey that lays ahead of her.

Big news, and I mean BIG news, is being shared here today! My family and I are thrilled to announce that we will be expecting baby #2 in the spring of 2015! The timing of all of this caught us a tad off guard, but some of the best things in life are surprises and we are so excited!

So being a mom & a photographer definitely meant I had to share all this good news through photos! So here is Aiden showing off his chubby belly & his excitement at becoming a “Big Brother!” And if you were to ask him whether he wants a baby sister or a baby brother, his response will be “baby sister please!”
