Sponaugle Wedding

The last time I visited The Columns at Six Penny Farm was for Kayleigh and Brandon’s engagement session. It was as beautiful as I remembered with a breathtaking view of Massanutten Mountain sitting nonchalantly to the west. While the vendors bustled around outside, the bride and her maids prepped in the upstairs of the home while the guys enjoyed an epic man cave in the basement. Once all the pieces fell into place, Kayleigh, escorted by her father, met Brandon at the alter and vowed to love one another forever. The evening that followed included yard games, cocktails, creative entrances by the wedding party, a delicious meal, icing to the face, and lots of dancing and laughter.bsomeimg_1979 bsomeimg_1974bsomeimg_2015bsomeimg_2017bsomeimg_2023bsomeimg_2053bsomeimg_2065bsomeimg_2073bsomeimg_2080bsomeimg_2116 bsomeimg_2090 bsomeimg_2104 bsomeimg_2111bsomeimg_2149bsomeimg_2129bsomeimg_2140bsomeimg_2169bsomeimg_2175bsomeimg_2209bsomeimg_2221bsomeimg_2230bsomeimg_2256bsomeimg_2257smallspoon176smallspoon179bsomeimg_2293bsomeimg_2308bsomeimg_2311bsomeimg_2314bsomeimg_2318bsomeimg_2321bsomeimg_2327bsomeimg_2494bsomeimg_2503bsomeimg_2514bsomeimg_2539bsomeimg_2542bsomeimg_2566bsomeimg_2569bwbsomeimg_2554bsomeimg_2590bsomeimg_2595bsomeimg_2600bsomeimg_2603bsomeimg_2611bsomeimg_2667bsomeimg_2634bsomeimg_2747bsomeimg_2879bsomeimg_2911bsomeimg_2919bsomeimg_2934bsomeimg_2964bsomeimg_2768bsomeimg_2684bsomeimg_2187bsomeimg_3035bsomeimg_3050bsomeimg_3160bsomeimg_3172bsomeimg_3239

Shipp Family

Children, like living timelines, show us the ever-changing time. It has been pure joy documenting this family from before they were even a family. Now here they are with a home and a yard and a little boy who speaks sentences and asks curious questions and a sweet baby girl who is content to simply be in your company. What a wonderful nest they have created. This at-home session took place in Grottoes, Virginia.bsomeimg_1513 bsomeimg_1526 bsomeimg_1532 bsomeimg_1518 bsomeimg_1516 bsomeimg_1544 bsomeimg_1571 bsomeimg_1595 bsomeimg_1603 bsomeimg_1600 bsomeimg_1631 bsomeimg_1665 bsomeimg_1694 bsomeimg_1686bsomeimg_1701bsomeimg_1740bsomeimg_1778bsomeimg_1781bsomeimg_1767bsomeimg_1796bsomeimg_1815bsomeimg_1829bsomeimg_1840

Toro-Leffler Wedding

Jason and Allie invited their friends and family to celebrate their wedding day in a nature-lovers heaven. This lush oasis, Montfair Resort Farm, is tucked away in the mountains of Crozet, Virginia, just outside of Charlottesville. There was a calming peace over the whole event that not even a one hour rain delay could rattle. Guests joined together to witness Allie and Jason make sincere, tearful vows to each other while fog hugged the mountainous layers of blue behind them. Following a paper lantern-lit pathway through the woods led guests to cocktail hour where canoes were available for cruising and drinks were served in mason jars designed by Allie’s cousin. The reception was filled to the brim with personal touches of love. As I walked away that evening, sounds of dancing, laughter, music, and celebration under the canopy of trees faded into the distance behind me.

Anderson Wedding

Justin and Amisha declared their vows in front of a postcard backdrop complete with Massanutten Mountain, every changing skies and lush greens in all directions. Family and friends gathered to witness the couple seal their love with a kiss and then dance the night away alongside their two sweet daughters. Among the many highlights of the day were the best man’s Fresh Prince of Bel-Air inspired speech, the double (double) chocolate chunk wedding cake, the secret handshake of the groom and his daughter, the post-ceremony mini-Dixie Cup champagne shot, copper flower centerpieces handmade by the bride’s dad, and the send off under a sea of glow sticks. Congrats Amisha and Justin and cheers to many years of happiness!

Tilson-Williams Wedding

Misty and Adam wed on the top of a hill with gorgeous views at friends home in Rockingham County. The sky threatened droplets most of the day but the clouds carried them away. Green grass, blue ridges, the sound of leaves blowing in the breeze and a roaring bonfire were just a few of the natural touches that made their day so wonderful. bsomeIMG_4278 bsomeIMG_4280 bsomeIMG_4293bsomeIMG_4306bsomeIMG_4334bsomeIMG_4327bsomeIMG_4329bsomeIMG_4342bsomeIMG_4377bsomeIMG_4363bsomeIMG_4557bsomeIMG_4394bsomeIMG_4396bsomeIMG_4411bsomeIMG_4390bsomeIMG_4422bsomeIMG_4430bsomeIMG_4626bsomeIMG_4489bsomeIMG_4465bsomeIMG_4481bsomeIMG_4449bsomeIMG_4476bsomeIMG_4492bsomeIMG_4490bsomeIMG_4495bsomeIMG_4522bw bsomeIMG_4518 bsomeIMG_4533 bsomeIMG_4530 bsomeIMG_4532bsomeIMG_4600bsomeIMG_4627bsomeIMG_4635bsomeIMG_4672bsomeIMG_4675bsomeIMG_4680bsomeIMG_4716bsomeIMG_4734bsomeIMG_4751bsomeIMG_4779bsomeIMG_4753bsomeIMG_4790bsomeIMG_4795bsomeIMG_4815bsomeIMG_4822bsomeIMG_4832bsomeIMG_4839bsomeIMG_4849bsomeIMG_4865bsomeIMG_4887bsomeIMG_4884bsomeIMG_4878bsomeIMG_4908bsomeIMG_4914bsomeIMG_4917bsomeIMG_4927bwbsomeIMG_5028bsomeIMG_5089bsomeIMG_4399bsomeIMG_4577bsomeIMG_4581bsomeIMG_5144bwbsomeIMG_5148bsomeIMG_5193bsomeIMG_5173bsomeIMG_5231bsomeIMG_5286bsomeIMG_5301bsomeIMG_5296bsomeIMG_5326bsomeIMG_5327bsomeIMG_5304bsomeIMG_5288bsomeIMG_5308bsomeIMG_5350bsomeIMG_5355bsomeIMG_5333bsomeIMG_5347bwbsomeIMG_5348

Leary Family

Any reason to see my friends, Brian and Reshella, is a good reason. But this time, the reason was a tiny human: chubby cheeks, chilly toes, bright eyes. Gah! They introduced me to their son Hudson as we hung out in his nursery (…really trying to hold back my “hanging at the crib” joke here). Evening light poured in through the windows and my children made googly eyes at Hudson from behind my lens. After our session we all went to Vito’s and ate our weight in pizza. On the way home I fantasized about a system where I would only do photo sessions in exchange for pizza. Or sometimes sushi…or Taste of Thai. Or pretty much just food in general. Make an offer.bsomeIMG_1780 bsomeIMG_1761bsomeIMG_1787bsomeIMG_1804bsomeIMG_1819bsomeIMG_1848bsomeIMG_1855bsomeIMG_1864bsomeIMG_1873bsomeIMG_1901bsomeIMG_1924bsomeIMG_1941bsomeIMG_1948bsomeIMG_1952bwbsomeIMG_1951bsomeIMG_1958bsomeIMG_1956bsomeIMG_1964bsomeIMG_1967bsomeIMG_1969bsomeIMG_1976bsomeIMG_1977bsomeIMG_2018bsomeIMG_1986bsomeIMG_1992bsomeIMG_1995bsomeIMG_1993bsomeIMG_1982bsomeIMG_1987

Gomes-Sponaugle, Engagement

She handed me a plate of warm chocolate chip cookies. A small gift largely representative of Kayleigh’s giant heart and sweet nature. About a year ago, I took a snapshot of Kayleigh and Brandon as they celebrated their friends wedding. This year, they are in the midst of planning their own wedding and I am thrilled to be the one that will document their special day. For the engagement session, we visited their wedding venue, The Columns at Six Penny Farms. With wonderful views in all directions, on this particular November evening, we enjoyed lovely golden sunlight pouring over rolling mountains.bsomeIMG_7889 bsomeIMG_7884 bsomeIMG_7899 bsomeIMG_7897 bsomeIMG_7910 bsomeIMG_7933bsomeIMG_7946bsomeIMG_7948bsomeIMG_7967bsomeIMG_7918bsomeIMG_7991bsomeIMG_7996bsomeIMG_8001bsomeIMG_8008bsomeIMG_8016bwbsomeIMG_8028bsomeIMG_8035bsomeIMG_8045bsomeIMG_8055bsomeIMG_8063bsomeIMG_8072bsomeIMG_8068bsomeIMG_8077bsomeIMG_8113bsomeIMG_8120bsomeIMG_8121bsomeIMG_8130cbsomeIMG_8132bsomeIMG_8131bsomeIMG_8135
