I am delighted to share Denise and Chris’s beautiful summer wedding at St Leo the Great Catholic Church and their family estate in Fairfax, Virginia with you today! Denise and Chris shared with me that they met and decided it was true love in their College Vector Calculus class. After 9:10 pm class they started an impromptu salsa dance class in the hallway! So, it was such a perfect choice for the bride to wear a pair of white Salsa shoes on her Wedding Day!
The couple chose a classic church ceremony at St. Leo the Great Catholic Church in Fairfax, Virginia. The beautiful “Ave Maria” was sung from the church balcony while the mothers were seated. Denise and Chris faced family and friends as they exchanged their vows. From the balcony the organist played Toccata from Organ Symphony No. 5. The adorable ring bearers and flower girl brought great joy to the wedding procession. Denise and Chris placed the bridal bouquet at the foot of the Blessed Mary after the ceremony.
An intimate outdoor reception was held at the family estate in Fairfax, Virginia under a tent draped canopy. Red and white lanterns strung from above and rows of twinkle lights. Each table was adorned with a glass filled with a floating red rose. The backyard garden reception setting was lovely with flowers and hostas and dappled sunlight filtered through large old oak trees. The reception was joyous with champagne and dancing into the night.

Today, I would like to share examples of what my modern wedding albums look like. I worked for many years as a Graphics Designer for large corporations, therefore I love to custom design wedding albums for my Wedding clients! What better way to show off your favorite wedding photographs that tell the story of your day. I design the layout and cover choices in collaboration with my clients to create a perfect coffee table statement Wedding Album.
Here are a few examples of what a 10 x 10 flushmount album looks like. The Album cover can come in leather, cloth, or canvas styles with a favorite photo or engraving of your names and wedding date.
This engagement session will make you Smile! Erin and Darcy are two of the nicest people you will ever meet and are both civil engineers who love travel and the great outdoors. The engagement photo session took place at The Winery at Bull Run in Centreville, Virginia on a crisp October afternoon. We then ventured to the Stone Bridge in Manassas National Battlefield Park along the Bull Run path. The beautiful Autumn leaves were just beginning to turn colors!
I had the best time with you both and love your photos! I can’t wait to photograph your Wedding!
