James & Emily | Potomac Point Winery, Virginia Wedding Photographer

James and Emily have been waiting for this day for literally YEARS. After a couple years of planning, the wait was finally over. They were blessed with sunshine and company from all over the country, including Alaska! I’ll admit that Saturday’s wedding was pretty hot, but James and Emily made it look like a piece of cake in these photos! They admitted that it was refreshing to jump into a bucket and stomp on grapes after running around for portraits. I guess it would be. ;) I don’t know how Emily was able to keep her dress so clean during the grape stomping! I remember getting excited when Emily was telling me all about her Kleinfeld Bridal experience; if you have ever seen the TLC show, Say Yes to the Dress, you know what I mean. :) They made sure to enjoy their engagement as well as have the best planning experience without the stress of time. Looking through their photos, you can see and feel the joy of the day. The wait was so worthwhile for this magical wedding! They deserved every bit of that happiness. <3

Thank you James and Emily for including me in your years of planning. It was a joy photographing your engagement session, especially your wedding day. <3 I wish you both the best in the future! XOXO!
