Great Marsh Estate is, in my opinion, the most romantic wedding venue in Northern Virginia. When Adam and Lauren reached out and inquired about me photographing their wedding, I was beyond excited! I was finally going to photograph at my dream wedding venue. We photographed their engagement session in the fall of 2018 and stayed in contact through the year while planning the nitty gritty details along with their planner. In early 2019, I found out I was pregnant and due 3 days after their wedding. I was devastated I wouldn’t be able to photograph their wedding but knew I was gaining the most treasured gift.

When I reached out to tell them the news, they were beyond excited for me and thankful I had a plan for their photographer instead of just completely having to cancel. I’m lucky to have a team of trusted photographers that were able to associate and second shoot their wedding for me. Their whole wedding day I was thinking, “Oh she’s probably walking down the aisle now” and “I wonder how their first look was.” I couldn’t help but be there in spirit.

Now I’m super excited to share their wedding images with you! Their Romantic Summer Great Marsh Estate Wedding did not disappoint and looked absolutely stunning! I’m so thankful I was able to get to know Adam and Lauren this past year and have a part in their wedding day.

Congratulations Adam and Lauren and thank you for choosing me to capture your wedding day.

Enjoy my favorites from Adam and Lauren’s Romantic Summer Great Marsh Estate Wedding.
