Steven and Leah

It’s so hard to believe that two weeks ago we were experiencing snow storms and freezing temps in Virginia and this week we started to get a small taste of spring with some warmer weather! I’m so happy that I got to shoot one snowy wedding this year though before it started to warm up…the snow added so much magic to Steven and Leah’s portraits!

It was absolutely freezing and I’m so thankful that they were willing to brave the cold to capture pretty images on their special day…they’ve been dating for over 6 years and it was so exciting to see so many of their friends and family come together to celebrate their new marriage with them! From Leah’s gorgeous v-neck sparkly gown, to the candle lit ceremony, to the snowy portraits…everything about it was so romantic!

Congratulations again Steven and Leah and thank you so much for welcoming me in to be a part of this very special time in your lives! I hope you enjoy my favorites!
