Happy conversation greeted me as I entered the home where Stephanie and her bridesmaids were getting ready that Saturday morning in the Chesapeake area of Virginia. The air was filled with excitement as the girls chatted over makeup and hair preparations. Later on, final touches took place while the bridal party waited in a pine paneled room just off the clearing where Stephanie would walk down the aisle in just a little while to join her life with Ben’s.
Those places – the clearing, the room of pine panels, the willow tree gently overlooking the pond – all held meaning for Ben and Stephanie. Triple R Ranch, the venue for their wedding, was a location where their relationship grew and flourished leading them to this day. So, it was only fitting that it served as the backdrop for their next step together. Their wedding was full of personal touches, heartfelt emotion, friends and family, not to mention lots of laughter!
Ben and Stephanie will always hold a special place in my heart and my journey. They graciously allowed me my debut as a wedding photographer on their big day. I’m so humbled by their faith in me! I’m very excited to finally share some of my favorites from their day!
