It was a beautiful spring day when I greeted Anya and her mother Phoebe outside the beautiful grounds of Lynn Acres in Smithfield, Virginia. The air was warm, and the sun was shining as we entered the beautiful bridal suite and gazed upon how lovely this space indeed was. The warm sunlight pouring into the window space made it feel magical. Every aspect of the suite is reminiscent of Paris’s romantic and beautiful city- including the custom hand-carved furniture made by old-world Parisian artisans. 

Anya’s bridal inspiration was romantic and soft, and she chose a beautiful, elegant Eddy K wedding dress for her May wedding. She paired her bridal accessories and makeup to reflect a refined yet subtle beauty. She completed her bridal portrait session with a total of three wedding dresses. Each wedding gown had a lovely personality and looked radiant on her. Due to a conflict of wedding dates, sadly, we could not photograph Anya’s wedding day, but she loved our photos so much that she booked her bridal and boudoir portrait sessions with us!

Here are a few of our favorite moments from Anya’s bridal portrait session. 

Anya selected three wedding dress designers for her big day, Eddy K, Justin Alexander and Anna Maier.

Adores long weekends with the family poolside, dog lover, and famous Mojito maker. Barefoot gardener, skincare junkie.

As a wedding photographer with over a decade of experience, I love to create beautiful, timeless imagery that captures all the emotions and feelings of the day. From the joyful to the sentimental, and the spontaneous once-in-a-lifetime moments that happen. I pour my heart and soul into each couple to ensure their wedding day is everything they dreamed and more.

I'm originally from Southeastern Canada and have settled in Virginia with my hsuband and three children. When I'm not behind the camera, you will happily find me in my garden or hosting an intimate dinner party. My friends will tell you I make the best mojito. And I've fallen in love with the art of sourdough. I'm a Libra-a hopeless romantic, and I believe that family is everything. And I will always think that retiring to Tuscany, Italy, and restoring an old villa in the countryside is a good idea.
