Restoration Hall | Blaire + Kilian


Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of heading down to Charlottesville for Blaire and Kilian’s beautiful wedding at Restoration Hall. It was such an incredible day! The fall colors were out in full effect, and the whole celebration was just gorgeous!

This wedding was EXTRA special for me because Blaire was actually one of my college housemates, and she’s still one of my dearest friends! Blaire is the kind of friend that makes everyone feel welcome.  She is incredibly kind and intentional, and she knows how to make her friends feel special. Being her friend has been one of my life’s greatest gifts, so you can imagine how excited I was when I first met Kilian! These two compliment each other in all the best ways. They love and support one another, and their laughter when they’re together is just the best. It was an absolute honor to photograph their wedding day!

Isn’t Blaire stunning?? One of my favorite parts of her wedding day was how JOYFUL she was. You can see it all over her face!

And Kilian was looking so handsome too!


The ceremony setting was just beautiful. I loved our view of the mountains! The ceremony itself was actually my favorite part of the day. It happened at sunset, and it was such a beautiful and meaningful celebration of Blaire and Kilian’s commitment to one another.

    I cannot even begin to find the words to say just how perfectly you captured the day. These pictures are incredible. I do not know how I will ever be able to thank you enough for these. You are not only an amazing friend, wife and mother, but wow, you are so incredibly talented. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
