Courtney and Chris were marred on a sunny turned stormy wedding day at River Farm. Courtney loves trees (as do I!) and so it was natural to display her gorgeous gown in one of the historic trees. Their ceremony was held under the Osage Orange tree – a tree that was a gift from Thomas Jefferson to George Washington. It was such a special day, see lots of pictures and more details about their day below. Congratulations Courtney and Chris, it’s been a pleasure to work with you both and an honor to document your wedding day!
Bubbles do show up in the dark and make for a fun sendoff!
An example of how an image is created. It was raining and dark and I was using off camera flash to make up for the lack of natural light. In this image, the flash didn’t fire and the image has only available light, the light filtering through the umbrella from above. The strong highlights and shadows meant I knew this image would be perfect as a black and white. It’s very pretty in color, but black and white really adds to the emotional impact of the moment. So romantic!
