Ashley’s Hometown Bridals | Crystal Reyns Photography | Louisa, Va Wedding Photographer

Ashley-0140

When Ashley had contacted me to capture her next chapter in life with the man she had been building a life with for FIFTEEN years, I was totally honored. Not only would that day be special, but I actually grew up with Ashley and she was the first bride I would have to capture their day that I had known since the days of the elementary school bus. So so so many days on Ms. Baber’s bus riding to Jouett.

Ashley wanted to stay in our home town for her bridals, it’s where she grew up, feel in love, and built a home for their life together. In choosing a location…..needless to say we picked a few.

The town of Louisa as that is where we are from, its a small town, and we may have hated it growing up, but it is a part of us. Weston Farms for the gorgeous lighting, and our elementary school.

All bridals are extra special to me, but this one right here hit home. This woman that I knew from a little girl that was a friend walking across the road to catch the school bus that I would get to capture walking down the aisle to her next chapter in life. Thank you Ashley for allowing me to capture your beauty as a bride!!

Kat and Tiff | RVA Engagement Session | Same Sex Wedding Photographer | Crystal Reyns Photographer

Where to begin on this couple….

They are amazing, fun, totally in love, and LOVE to flirt in front of the camera. I absolutely adored working with the couple as the camera just loves them. And I love the vintage twist to this session.

RVA was the perfect setting for this couple and that pop of red. That sunset glow just loves y’all!!

What y’all may not know is we had to cancel their session TWICE due to rain…..and seriously what a blessing that was to get this perfect day at Maymont.

Natalie and Gary’s Sunset Libby Hill Park Engagement | Crystal Reyns Photography | Richmond, Va Wedding Photographer

Pink tulle skirt, gold sparkly shoes, and a gorgeous couple showing off their love at sunset. This Libby Hill Park session was so much fun, not only because I got to learn more about one of my 2016 couples…BUT…. because my sweets joined and actually shot this session……CRAZY right?!?!?!

Natalie and Gary spent Natalie’s last few days in Va packing up the place she called home for quite some time, to join him across the country where they see quite a bit more snow. They choose this special park where it over saw Richmond, her apartment and the James River….it was Gary’s first visit to Libby Hill and it was PERFECT for them.

Thank y’all so much for allowing us to capture this special moment, and I can’t wait until your Richmond wedding next year.
