This romantic blue and white styled wedding at the Woman’s Club in Portsmouth, Virginia was an absolute dream to photograph! The bouquet was simply stunning and so was our newlywed models Megan and Clay. Every now and then I’d get a glimpse of the way Clay was looking at Megan when she wasn’t looking and oh my swoon!! So much love.

Back in February, I did the Audrey Rose Wedding Workshop in Norfolk with a friend of mine. She second shoots weddings with me and I second shoot with her. It was a great opportunity to be able to take this workshop together and helped us get to know each other better.

The Audrey Rose Wedding Workshop was a 13 hour day filled with information and part of the day was a styled wedding. The gorgeous models Megan and Clay just got married at the end of last year and enjoyed getting all dressed up. Megan said she loved the dress she wore during the styled session more than she liked her own wedding dress!

This styled wedding really inspired me to plan a styled session on my own. It’s now a goal of mine within the next year or two. If you’re a DMV area vendor and want to collaborate in a styled wedding send me an email!
