Tambre + RJ || A Kingsmill Resort Wedding, Williamsburg Virginia Wedding Photographers

kingsmillresortwedding_williamsburgvirginiaweddingphotographers_kingsmillweddingpictures_0021

When Tambre and RJ planned their Independence Day weekend wedding, they probably did not expect to have to worry about a hurricane threatening their wedding plans. But, as we all know, we can’t predict the weather, so when Hurricane Arthur came to the East Coast last week, we all held our breath to see what it would do and where it would go. Thankfully, Arthur made a quick and fairly uneventful pass through most of Hampton Roads, leaving us with cooler temperatures and the most GORGEOUS day ever for Tambre + RJ to say “I Do”.

In front of their closest family and friends, under a clear blue sky with the James River sparkling in the background, Tambre and RJ said sweet and simple vows to each other. They promised forever and held on tight to each other, knowing no matter the weather that would come in their marriage, they would take comfort in the fact that following a big storm, always comes a blue sky and a new day.

Tambre + RJ – We were so thankful to get to be a part of your incredible wedding. You two are so sweet, kind and generous, and it shows in how you treat everyone around you. We are so honored that we got to be there to watch the beginning of your beautiful new life together, and we can’t wait to see where the future takes you! xo! – Ashley

Alyson + Nick || Back Bay Wildlife Refuge, Virginia Beach Virginia Wedding Photographers

Alyson + Nick are getting married next month (EEK!) and I’m so happy we got a chance to get together and do some fun photos of them and their ADORABLE pup Frankenstein before the wedding day! We roamed around the gorgeous Back Bay Wildlife Refuge on a perfect summer afternoon – and although Frankie tried to steal the show at every turn, I have to say, these two and the way they love each other definitely won out! :) I love their casual and laid back style and how fun-loving and comfortable these two are around each other – it made me and Jeremy even more excited for their wedding! Enjoy some of my many favorites – seriously, how incredibly is Alyson’s dress?! xo! – Ashley

Jenna + Brian || A Brooklyn Bridge Sunrise Engagement Session, New York City Wedding Photographers

brooklynbridgeengagementpictures_newyorkcityweddingphotographers_centralparkengagementpictures_0005

Phew! As you can tell, last week was the week of engagements for me! Since I knew I would be in NYC for the weekend to get to be IN Lauren + Tommy’s wedding, I was so so SO thankful that all of our couples were able to do their sessions in the same weekend that Jeremy and I were already going to be up there! I’m so happy it worked out! Jenna and Brian were the last engagement session for the weekend, and when we started discussing locations we knew that The Brooklyn Bridge and Central Park were on the list – I suggested a sunrise session and I was so so happy they agreed!

Picking sunrise for this session was the BEST idea ever! Not only was the weather absolutely perfect and not too hot, the light was beautiful and we had every location entirely to ourselves, which we know is not easy when it comes to shooting in New York City! It was so much fun walking around the city on a perfect morning shooting with these two! We were all chatting so much we overshot our exit on the Brooklyn Bridge and had to backtrack a bit! Jenna and I both went to JMU and kept saying we couldn’t believe we didn’t cross paths somewhere along the way! I love that even though I didn’t know some people at JMU, I get the chance to work with incredible alumni all over the country doing amazing things through our business!

Jenna and Brian also picked one final location for their session – Penn Station. A subway station?! Yep! It’s where they met and became friends, sharing a train to Long Island and developing a friendship and then relationship with their time spent together commuting. When she mentioned it I knew we had to make it happen – as I’ve mentioned, I get so excited when couples really get excited about their locations and have a place that has special meaning to them! These two are planning a destination wedding for next year and we could not be happier for the two of them! xo! – Ashley

After a quick outfit change, we headed over to Central Park to take advantage of the PERFECT light and near-empty park! It was so nice not having to worry about a million people in the background! How amazing is Jenna’s dress?!

We finished up the session at Penn Station where they met for a few photos – we got super lucky and actually caught the very same train they used to take together that developed their relationship! SO awesome!
