Jenna's Hahn Horticulture Garden at Virginia Tech Bridal Portraits

I've been trying to think back and figure out how I met Jenna because it feels like I've known this amazing lady for my entire life.  She thinks it was from where she did hair and makeup for a boudoir shoot that I did so we'll go with that!  Jenna uses her talents to make other women look beautiful on a daily basis at Tivon Salon in Blacksburg so I was excited when she got engaged and got to be the fairy princess in her own bridal portraits.

Check out her Big Spring Farm engagement photos and her wedding will be posted soon!

Kaitlin's Bridal Portraits at Virginia Tech's Hahn Horticulture Garden

I met Kaitlin back in January at a bridal expo in Roanoke.  She wanted a flower filled garden backdrop for her bridal portraits so we decided to go with the Hahn Horticulture Garden at Virginia Tech.  Radford Florists created a small bouquet of white roses for her bridal portrait session that is similar to the bouquet she carried on her wedding day a few weeks ago.

Kindell's Owl Hollow Farm Bridal Portraits

Equestrian Inspired Bridal Portraits at a Horse Farm in Floyd, Virginia

I met up with Kindell and her mother at Mabry Mill in Meadows of Dan on a foggy summer afternoon for her bridal portrait session.  Afterwards we moved further along the parkway to Owl Hollow Farm in Floyd.  Both Kindell and her mother spent a lot of quality time at this horse farm when they were younger and still visit often to spend time with the horses and their close friends that own the farm which was also the venue for Kindell and Patric’s wedding a few weeks ago.  Her gorgeous dress is by Watters & Watters purchased at L.A. Bridal in Melbourne, Florida.  Mary Jo of Gloriosa in Roanoke created the bouquet which is inspired by the one she made for Kindell and Patric’s wedding day.

Angie’s Virginia Tech Bridal Portraits

Virginia Tech Bridal Portraits

I met the lovely Miss Angie at a bridal expo last year at the Inn at Virginia Tech which happened to be her future wedding venue and one of the locations we visited to take her bridal portraits this summer. Angie and her mom are the sweetest, we had a really great time during her photo session. We started out at the Hahn Horticulture Garden, moved along to the Inn at Virginia Tech, and even in the Holtzman Alumni Center.

Blacksburg Faux Bridal Portraits

I met Taylor through Instagram, if you follow me and interact with me on there or any other form of social media, there is a pretty good chance we’ll become friends and end up inviting you to come model for me at some point. Some of the photos were taken at the greenhouses on the campus of Virginia Tech (right next to the Hahn Horticulture Garden) and the others were taken around downtown Blacksburg.  The necklace is from Chloe + Isabel; dresses are from Bliss by Monique Lhuillier and Nicole Miller.

If you couldn’t tell by the two different wedding dresses in these photos, this is a faux bridal session so if you are Kaylee’s friend don’t get freaked out that you missed the memo.  I bought some wedding dresses earlier this year to play around with for photo sessions.  Kaylee is a hair and makeup artist so she usually spends her time behind the scenes…  It is always nice to get her beautiful face in front of my camera.  The first necklace is vintage, it belongs to Kaylee’s mother, the second necklace is from Chloe + Isabel .  The second wedding gown is by Winnie Couture.  Lace edged veil is from Simply Bridal.  These photos were taken at the Hahn Horticulture Garden on campus at Virginia Tech and in the green house adjacent to the garden.

I met Natalee through Instagram earlier this year. She’s a gorgeous girl and an fierce athlete.  How amazing are her eyes?  Her hair and makeup was done by Kaylee Graves; the first necklace is from Sabika, second necklace is from Chloe + Isabel.  These bridal portraits were taken in Hahn Horticulture Garden on the campus of Virginia Tech as well as in the greenhouses next to the garden.
