Virginia Tech Hahn Horticulture Garden Gala 2019

This year is the 35th anniversary of the Hahn Horticulture Garden at Virginia Tech and the 15th annual Garden Gala so I was honored to be invited to photograph the event.  Catering and beverages were provided by Blue Ridge CateringSalt Pond performed the live music for the gala.

The event was super extra special to me this year because I re-met one of the servers named Lindsay [first at Mockingbird Café, then the 2018 Hahn Gala].  We went out after the event and I fell deeply in friend love with her. We’ve been inseparable ever since the Gala so shout out to Lindsay for being amazing and Hahn Horticulture Garden for bringing us back together!

Hahn Horticulture Garden Gala 2018 at Virginia Tech

The Hahn Horticulture Garden at Virginia Tech is one of my favorite wedding venues. I was so excited when they invited me to photograph the 14th Annual Hahn Horticulture Garden Gala a couple months ago. The event was beautiful - serene setting, stunning flower arrangements (of course), delicious food courtesy of Blue Ridge Catering, a silent auction full of unique pieces of artwork, and wonderful live music provided by Vinyl Tap.

The Lisle Family | Blacksburg Maternity Portrait Photography

I have been photographing this family since their daughter was a newborn, I love watching their family grow together and soon they'll be welcoming another sweet baby girl to the family. We met up for their Blacksburg maternity photos at the beautiful Hahn Horticulture Garden at Virginia Tech where we enjoyed the beautiful lush foliage, Koi, and the extra friendly mallard ducks. I made Ali a fuchsia chrysanthemum flower crown to wear for some of her photos, once we were finished using it for the maternity photos, Catherine got to try her hand as a flower child and take it home as a souvenir from her photo shoot. Next we moved on the Virginia Tech Duck Pond where we got a quick few photos before we succumbed to the heat and pizza cravings.  I cannot wait to meet their sweet new baby in a few weeks!
