Bekah and Brendan | Market at Grenlen Virginia Wedding Photographer

Bekah reached out to me back in October about photographing her wedding. She mentioned that they wanted their day to be full of love and have a simple, yet elegant vibe. As soon as I met Bekah, I fell in love with her vision and laid-back vibe. Bekah and I talked for about an hour and a half and I left the conversation feeling as though I had not just gained a client, but a friend. 

Bekah and Brendan's wedding day was no exception. The entire day, I didn't feel like a photographer, I felt like a guest. Their day was so full of love, laughter, and Christ, and I was so honored to play a small part. This wedding was absolutely beautiful, but I was reminded at this wedding that it's about so much more than just the flowers and the venue. Big shoutout to Torrin Nelson for helping me second shoot this wedding, partying at the reception, and being insanely talented. Check out the photos from Bekah and Brendan's gorgeous wedding below!

 Okay, now we need to take a minute to talk about Bekah's gift to Brendan. She's been writing him letters since before she met him, just to give him on the wedding day. TALK ABOUT TEARS!

 Originally, Bekah and Brendan were supposed to get married outside, but the weather forced them to move the ceremony inside the greenhouse. Honestly, I think the change was for the better, as the greenhouse was stunning and the lighting was so great inside!

I'm such a fan of the bride doing a first look with her dad, it gives so much genuine emotion.
