Kyle and Amanda- Richmond VA Wedding Photographer

It had been over a year since I had seen Kyle and Amanda at their engagement photo session, and yet as soon as I walked into Amanda’s bridal suite at the Weston Hotel in Richmond this past Saturday, it felt like I was going to see a long lost friend! :0) We’ve been emailing back and forth this past year, and I have been counting down until October 1st for quite a while now! As soon as Jill and I showed up we could tell right away that both Kyle and Amanda were more than ready for their wedding day to finally be here; there were no nerves, just excitement to finally become husband and wife! They were just ready to say “i do!” and celebrate with their family and friends, and let me tell you, i’ve never seen a wedding reception quite like this! Typically I would say about half the guests spend the night on the dance floor, but not times time! The dance floor was COMPLETELY packed throughout the entire reception, and I’m pretty sure they could have stayed and danced all night! Jill and I walked out at the end noting how that was one of the most FUN wedding receptions we’ve ever been to.. and with a job like ours, thats saying a LOT! :0)

Kyle and Amanda, I am SO thankful that you asked me to be your photographer! It was an honor to celebrate with you both, and I hope you enjoyed every moment of your wedding day! how gorgeous are the florals? Love the bold jewel tones! that shot of Amanda on the left is one of my favorites from the entire day, not sure what it is about that specific photo.. it think it just shows what a stunning, classic bride Amanda is! Amanda has the BEST laugh :0)
First Look! Amanda picked a great spot to do their first look, and the light couldn’t have been more perfect! :0) I think every session should include a weeping willow tree :0) LOVE!
Look at all the little ducks following them! :0) They left pretty quick after they realized we didn’t have any food for them, but I still love them in this next picture:
helloooo pretty light! and hellooooo gorgeous couple! prettiest bridesmaids ever? heck YES!
time to get married!! :0) because Amanda and Kyle are extra awesome, they blocked off a few more minutes for portraits around the hotel! :0) first dance sweetness: okay how adorable is this couple?! they won the anniversary dance for being married the longest, and when asked what their advice for Kyle and Amanda would be, the husband took the mic and said “oh, just let HER be the boss!” :0) … i dont think either one of them stood a chance ;0) Congratulations again! Here’s your slideshow! :0)

Happy Friday!!
