Kauffman Wedding

Bobby and Julianne got married at the James Madison University Arboretum on a day that threatened rain with hovering gray skies. Ducks and squirrel played in the distance as guests began to gather under a tent by the pond for the wedding ceremony. As Julianne’s father walked her down the aisle and under the shelter, raindrops fell from the sky. Guests took communion and sat contently with smiles as the couple made promises of forever, sealed with a kiss. The reception was the longest and most lively I’ve witnessed with six hours planned for dinner and dancing. (!) The night went perfectly and new memories were made with the merging of a new family. The happiness was so contagious you could spot the hotel staff, wedding coordinators, videographer and DJ dancing and laughing while working. And then, a requested Metallica song played and I thought surely the banquet room would collapse on itself. The entire room went WILD and somehow the blow-up guitar survived the crowd. It was a sight to see and I’m happy I could be there to document this joyous occasion. Congratulations Julie and Bobby!

Troxell Family

The first time I met Lisa was at the Swannanoa Palace where I photographed her fun-loving family. On this particular Sunday afternoon, we met in Staunton so I could get some shots of her husband’s side of the family. These two are so fun to work with and I love any chance to meet more and more of their family! They are a genuine, kind, good humored group of people. What more could you ask for? Below are some of my favorites from that 80 degree October fall day.bsomeIMG_4527 bsomeIMG_4542 bsomeIMG_4547 bsomeIMG_4550bsomeIMG_4544 bsomeIMG_4573 bsomeIMG_4576bsomeIMG_4578 bsomeIMG_4583 bsomeIMG_4584bwbsomeIMG_4598bw bsomeIMG_4635 bsomeIMG_4624 bsomeIMG_4703bsomeIMG_4719 bsomeIMG_4706 bsomeIMG_4729bwbsomeIMG_4728bwSMALLtroxellCOLOR055bsomeIMG_4778 bsomeIMG_4785 bsomeIMG_4799bwSMALLtroxellBW40bsomeIMG_4783bsomeIMG_4793 bsomeIMG_4788

Miller Wedding

I have photographed Rachel and Daniel’s family in the past and they are so much fun to be around. They’ve made me feel like an adopted member…which I am totally cool with. At one point during the wedding a family member made me put my camera down, fill a plate with food and down a beer. True story.  This was a down home, intimate wedding that I am so happy I was a part of .bsomeIMG_5174
