Megan and Brandon- Virginia Wedding Photographer

Meet Megan and Brandon, one of my fabulous 2011 couples! Megan has dreamed up the perfect Virginia wedding, highlighting all her favorite things about where she grew up. To start things off, she arranged for us to be able to do their engagement pictures at the beautiful Stribling Apple Orchard and I was in a photographers heaven with apple trees everywhere, mountains and horses in the background, and a great couple in front of my camera! Megan has done some event coordinating herself, so I know her day is going to not only go off without a hitch, but be absolutely gorgeous in the process! She had thought of so many fun details to include in their engagement session, that I can hardly wait to see the wedding all come together!

Megan and Brandon balance each other perfectly; you can tell they bring out the best in each other and keep one another grounded. I love seeing a couple laugh together, and Brandon definitely keeps that smile on her face :0) Can’t wait to see you both again soon! img_4478img_4480img_4507img_4544img_4602img_4645i’ll warn you now.. i have a LOT of favorites :0) this one included:
