This very Harry Wedding styled shoot is brought to you by myself and Liz from Ballenger Farm. We had the idea of putting together a smaller shoot. Something everyone could attain. And, of course, we wanted it to be Harry Potter themed.
Alyssa and Nick had plans for mountain views and waterfalls for their wedding in June, but then the pandemic happened. What I love most about these two is that they didn’t let that stop them.

I wish I did because I love knowing about peoples’ love story. In the meantime, we can just appreciate the photos for the beauty … Read More Maryland Wedding Photography: In-home Elopement

Every detail was covered by someone … Read More Katherine and David’s Richmond, Virginia Wedding
