I have know Emily and Jonathan for a long time. I grew up swimming with Jonathan and playing soccer with Emily. I am so honored to call them both friends. When Emily called and told me she was engaged I was THRILLED! These two make such a beautiful and adorable couple and I couldn’t have been happier they were getting married! And then when she asked us to photograph her wedding I was so excited. I knew it would be an amazing day, and it was! When I told Emily we’d shoot her wedding day, she immediately had me promise her that we would still act as guests. Throughout the day people came up to us to make sure we were “having fun and being a guest”. Well, it would have been impossible to NOT have fun at this wedding. I may be a little biased with these long-time friends, but their wedding was an absolute blast! This day was definitely filled with a lot of good friends & family, love & laughter, and music & DANCING! In fact, it’s too much fun for one blog post, so we are going to split this one into two parts. Enjoy part one 🙂
Off to the church. They danced the whole way there!
I love that even when they bride and groom get ready in two seperate locations we can get some of the groom getting ready! Michael stays with the boys and I say with the girls.
I loved these engraved groomsmen gifts!
I love that almost all our brides this season are opting for first looks! I’m going to have to do an “I love” post on that one soon.. And even better when we have an amazing location like the capital to do it!
When we told Emily she could start walking to Jonathan, she ran! I think she was a little excited.
And here is why I LOVE first looks!
And here is why I LOVE that there are two of us!
The beautiful St. Paul’s Church
Some churches have really strict standards of what photographers are allowed to do on a wedding day (like this church). But it makes it all OK when you get images like this that you may have missed otherwise…
Can’t wait to share part II! Leave Emily & Jonathan some love in the comments until then!
a husband and wife photography team based in Richmond, Virginia (though we LOVE to travel!). We hope you enjoy browsing some of our most recent work, reading our tips and tricks for brides, and taking a little peek into our life.
