Charlottesville Family Photographer – The Coles Family

Charlottesville family photos

We are so happy to share some pictures from the Coles family portrait session at Chiles Peach Orchard. Erin and Aaron are friends and used to work together so Aaron was especially excited to have the opportunity to create some portraits for a fellow photographer! Little Arden just turned one year old and she loves being tossed in the air, running around, and especially eating ice cream, which she got to eat a lot of during this session! Being at Chiles Peach Orchard, they decided to take advantage of the delicious apple cider donuts and have a donut smash! Arden loved the ice cream and donuts and even decided to share some with mom and dad. Enjoy!

Richmond Wedding Photography – Allison & Alec at The Commonwealth Club

weddings at the commonwealth club

Allison and Alec had such an elegant reception at The Commonwealth Club in Richmond, VA. The ballroom was gorgeous and the Risse Band kept everyone dancing the whole night! I love the special traditions that they incorporated into the reception, including a song by Allison’s extended family specially written for the couple. Alec is in the Navy so they fittingly cut their cake with a sword! I especially loved the groom’s cake. Alec loves to hunt duck and always tries to get Allison to come along with him. The cake was decorated as a hunting scene with the bride dragging the groom away with a “no hunting” sign on the side!

Congratulations Allison and Alec! It was truly an amazing night and we were so honored to be a part of it!
