Stephen & Caroline’s April 9th Parkersburg WV Wedding was an unexpectedly cold and snowy Spring day in Parkersburg, West Virginia. The beauty and warmth that filled the day more than made up for the weather outside. The day began with getting ready at The Blennerhassett Hotel in downtown Parkersburg, followed by ceremony at Trinity Episcopal Church. Lots of laughter, tears, and good times were had at the reception which followed at The Parkersburg Country Club into the night. There were so many memorable moments throughout the day and I was honored to capture it all for them.

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Koval!!!

I have to mention that one of our images was shared on Mark Zunino‘s Instagram!

I had the honor of photographing this simple yet very elegant Wedding on May 1st in Savannah. Alicia and Mike love Savannah & decided a destination Wedding there was perfect for them. The couple stayed at The Mansion on Forsyth Park, where we photographed many of their detail and formal shots. This hotel is amazing to say the least. Everywhere you turn there is art and beauty, from the lobby to the rooms themselves. I really enjoyed shooting there. The ceremony was held just across the street in Forsyth Park, amidst the beautiful trees and flowing Spanish moss. It was a very private & intimate affair, with only the couple, officiator, our photography team, and their Wedding coordinator. After the ceremony, we spent a few hours shooting more formals of the couple in the park and close to the epic River Street area of Savannah.

Alicia was one of the sweetest brides I’ve ever worked with, and Mike was a true gentleman as well. I loved our time together, and am so thankful for the opportunity to capture these special moments for them. Looking forward to a future portrait session with them and their families that is already in the works!

 

So, I’ve been shooting a Wedding pretty ALMOST every Saturday for the past few months now, and I have lots more coming up in July, August, September, and October! I love the wonderful couples I get to spend time with and all the wonderful people I meet along the way. This year’s Wedding season has me traveling all over 3 states and is allowing me to see a lot of cool places that I might not otherwise visit.

Here are few updates from April & May (more to come soon)…

BONNER WEDDING

It was a fun-filled day in St. Mary’s, W.V. for Ashlee & Shawn’s Wedding on April 19th. Shawn is a Marine and Ashlee is proud to be a Marine’s wife! They are now living in North Carolina, where Shawn is stationed. The cool thing about this Wedding is that one of Ashlee’s bridesmaids, Kayleigh, is also a Wedding client of mine and I just shot her Wedding on June 21st, so basically I just got to see almost everyone from Ashlee’s Wedding again, including Ashlee, who was also a bridesmaid in Kayleigh’s wedding!

GIBSON WEDDING- April 26, 2008

You might recognize this couple from a previous blog about their engagement session. Julia & Larry’s beautiful day took me to Salesville, OH, at the very cool Pine Lakes Lodge. It’s this really neat log cabin lodge on the top of a mountain with breath-taking scenery. It was so much fun!

CAMPBELL WEDDING

A big congrats to Clark & Julie Campbell on their recent Wedding! The special occasion took place at Little Creek Country Club in South Charleston on May 24th! Clark is originally from West Virginia, however the couple now reside in Rockville, Maryland. It was a such a beautiful and fun day and I am happy I was there to capture it for them!
