WEDDING | Shawn & Addie – a rustic fall train station wedding

In 2012, I had the absolute privilege to assist Jessica Cortes of Jessica Mae Photography on three of her weddings.  Jessica is great to work with – friendly, engaging, smiles a lot and is easy to talk to.  Her manner helps her relate to her clients and their families, putting them at ease – a necessity on a day when nerves can be high.  She’s also wonderful because she is willing to share with other photographers just getting started – i.e. me!

Shawn and Addie were married on September 29, 2012.  As we were driving up to Covington, Virginia – Jessica told me all the two of them!  Addie and Shawn are so much in love which I’m sure you will see through the images.  Addie is a school teacher and loves pink, a color used throughout their wedding.

When we arrived, Jessica and I headed over to the Covington C&O Depot to shoot the details.  The depot is also where Addie and Shawn would hold their ceremony later that day.

Once the girls were all ready to go, we piled in the cars and headed over to Humpback Bridge Wayside Park for the first look and portraits.  Jessica had Shawn wait on the other side of Humpback Bridge and while Addie walked through the covered bridge to meet him for the first look.

The location was just perfect for the portraits.  There were so many beautiful spots and the lighting was amazing.  It was gorgeous fall day – cool but not chilly!  The colors of the leaves were changing and I couldn’t get enough of it in the images I was capturing of Shawn & Addie!

Since Addie & Shawn elected to do a first look, there was more time after the ceremony to take more portraits of the two of them outside the train depot!
