alex + brad | marriott ranch

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of photographing Alex and Brad’s wedding at Marriott Ranch right outside of Warrenton, VA. It was such a gorgeous day, and I loved being there to capture it! I’ve actually been looking forward to this wedding since I shot their engagement session last year. It was such a fun session for me, and I realized then how easy it is to photograph Alex and Brad. They’re both so sweet and comfortable with one another! I loved being there to capture their love and joy on their wedding day. It was just beautiful!

Saturday felt much more like a day with old friends than a work day. I had such a wonderful time! It was hard to narrow them down, but here are just a handful of my favorite images…

I love this ceremony setting! The wind was out in FULL EFFECT all day, but it added a really fun layer to the photos with Alex’s veil!
