emily | harrisonburg, va bridal portraits


This beautiful bride!  She is just one of the sweetest, most joyful people you’ll ever meet.  She’s one of those people you just want to be around, because she is so genuine and welcoming, and her smile (and her joy) is contagious.  I had so much fun getting to know Emily and Hunter at their engagement session (check that out here!) and I so enjoyed the opportunity to get to know Emily more during her bridal session.  We were able to shoot her bridal portraits at their wedding venue, The Columns at Six Penny Farm, and it was just perfect!  The Columns at Six Penny Farm provided a beautiful backdrop, we had amazing weather, and Emily was absolutely stunning.  I am so excited to share my favorites with y’all!


I really love this black and white on the left!


Emily, you are so gorgeous!!


This next one, y’all.  You just don’t get a more classic, romantic bridal portrait.



I LOVE this next one so much.  It’s so easy to see how joyful this gorgeous bride is!


The road leading up to The Columns at Six Penny Farm is this beautiful, rustic back road and it was one of my FAVORITE spots for her bridal portraits (and then some wedding day portraits, too)!  I mean, how perfect is this??


Emily, girl, you totally nailed the “soft smile” in this next shot on the right.  😉  So gorgeous!


This next one is another favorite!  Such an unassuming, natural moment – I think that’s what I love so much about it. 🙂


I pretty much swooned over Emily’s dress the whole time … I mean, look at these stunning lace details!  Love, love, love!


The Columns at Six Penny Farm has this gorgeous field with beautiful Virginia mountains behind it!   Naturally, we had to finish our session right here. 😉


Gah, again with this gorgeous lace detail on her sleeves! (and that gorgeous ring!)


Another favorite – love that glowy light!!


Emily, thank you so much for allowing me to be part of this season with y’all!  It was a privilege!  I hope you love your bridal portraits!!
