“We’re getting married on a bluff overlooking the water in the neighborhood where I grew up. It overlooks the spot where Collin proposed…” That was our introduction. Our introduction to spending one of my favorite wedding days ever together. To spending a perfect day on the water in Annapolis, with a beautiful couple and their friends and family.

Caryn and Collin’s wedding is also featured on Style Me Pretty and you can see all the details there.

This is just a small handful of moments from Kelly and John’s beautiful wedding in Warrenton, VA. Its easy to get distracted because everything and everyone is so beautiful, but the moments, the day, and the people were all so kind and genuine, it was just a bonus that we had a perfect setting, a perfect day and such perfect light. Kelly and John are my neighbors, and although we didn’t know that until right before the wedding, it was easy to feel that way around them. Sometimes you get embraced differently than at most weddings. You can feel the couple, their friends and families invite you into their homes and their hearts with just a little more warmth. With lots of hugs and kind words and underserved thanks. I imagine Kelly and Johns friends and family feel the same way.

I do my best here to write and show how grateful I am.

Grateful to my clients for trusting me. For baring a little piece of their soul to me and my camera when we are together. For being themselves and allowing me to capture it the best I can.

But sometimes I am not able to describe a day or a couple in a way that would do them justice.

So I’ll leave you with a few words from Kristen + Danny who put their faith in me for a few hours at the Shenandoah River earlier this summer.

“In working with Gabe something astonishing happened: we found ourselves. We found our wedding selves. Gabe found a great location that really spoke to us – a creek and field in the George Washington National Forest in Fort Valley, Virginia. We picked our favorite outfits – bathing suits, because we’re sunshine addicts, and relaxed casual clothes. We picked a time of day – a gorgeous summer sunset. All of these things that were our favorites, testaments to what we do and love on a daily basis. Working with Gabe became a discovery process, pure and simple.

We got our photos back from Gabe… and sat in awe as we watched our true selves there on the screen. Not awkwardly posed, but really ourselves. Romantic, sensual, playful, seriously in love, and hanging out like usual — in bathing suits.”

There’s not much more I can say except thank you.

To Kristen + Danny and to all my couples who allow me to help tell their story.

I am humbled to be a part of it.
