It’s not unusual for the final few days before your wedding to be busy and a tad stressful. You’re throwing what will probably be the biggest party of your life! There are so many loose ends to take care of. But mere days before Carson and Will’s Lewisburg WV farm wedding, historic floods hit West Virginia.
Where do we begin with this bride and her Greenbrier Resort bridal portraits?
Chelsa & Chris are some of the sweetest and most adorable people ever. They got married on a swelteringly hot summer day at Blessed Sacrament church in South Charleston, then moved on to have a Marriott Pavilion WV wedding reception.
What started out as a headshot session turned into a hybrid of engagement and business portraits. Initially Erin & Doyle booked us for headshots for their videography business (Dande Films), but somewhere in between booking and shooting, they got engaged. YAY!!! We loved working with them for their Charleston WV engagement / headshot portraits.
Amanda & Todd’s West Virginia wedding took place on Leap Day! Their ceremony was at the WVSU Capitol Theater, and the reception was at Black Sheep Burritos.
Jen and Carling are another one of those couples like us who run a business together. We love meeting other business-owning couples because it really takes a special sort of dynamic to make everything work smoothly. If we had a dollar for every time someone has said, “I would KILL my significant other if I worked with them”, well, then, we’d have a lot more money to spend on cat toys at Target. Anyway, Carling and Jen pulled off a sweaty (it was 95 degrees) & sentimental celebration that included so many amazing local vendors. They’re active in the community …
We lucked out with the most beautiful fall day with these two for their engagement session!!! Ohio University is my alma mater and a short jaunt from Charleston, WV. We love visiting Athens to catch a film at the Athena, some beer at Jackie-O’s, and a delicious dinner at Casa Nueva. So when Brittany and Sam booked us for their Athens, Ohio wedding and wanted their engagement session there too, we were SO excited. Clients in Athens = more time in Athens!
Nolan is the most laid-back dude ever. We initially met Nolan when we shot his sister’s wedding at the Clay Center back in 2010. We were excited to work with Nolan and his family again when he got in touch with us to photograph his JQ Dickinson Salt-Works wedding in Charleston, West Virginia.
How sweet are these two? They eloped earlier on the same morning that we took these photos, so we spent a little time around downtown Charleston WV for some post-elopement portraits of them! Here are our favorite photos from our short shoot with Kaci & Taylor on their wedding day. <3
