On Saturday March 10th, my associate photographer Jessica and I photographed Kate and Seth's wedding at The Mill at Fine Creek
in Powhatan, Virginia. It was my first time photographing a wedding at this venue, and it was just as awesome as I had been told. Basically it's on old mill that is on the National Register of Historic Places. It has serious character. But then again, so did the bride and groom, and their wedding party. Kate and Seth were a blast to work with, and they made the job of documenting their day an absolute joy. Here are a few of my favorites from that gorgeous day in March. Enjoy!
As usual, we started the day with some details...like Kate's stunning dress...
And then we found Kate getting ready.
The dress went on...
And then she was suddenly a bride.
Kate told us that she really wanted some pictures of her Dad walking her down the stairs. So I stayed at the top...
Capturing them from behind as they walked down...
And Jessica was at the bottom waiting. Love it!
Kate, you are beautiful.
And so is your little flower girl.
And your ring bearer. He just loves you and it shows in the pictures!
Roses and bling.
Can't ever go wrong with that!
A favorite of the girls.
Having a second photographer is so great for so many reasons...
When the girls looked at Jessica, it allowed me to get what I like to call "candid portraits" like this one.
The handsome groom...
Seriously, could he be any cuter?!
Pictures with personality.
That is what Kate and Seth said they wanted...
And hopefully I was able to give them just that.
Images that are lively and fun.
And ones they will proudly display for years to come.
Kate and Seth were married right inside the old mill.
It was breathtaking.
And the moments really took their breath away.
Their expressions were priceless.
Tears, smiles, laughter, they covered it all.
Their embraces spoke volumes.
These two were so perfect together.
How do you get a wedding party to relax and laugh like this?
You have the best man bring a tray that looks like this! ;-)
Seriously, Kate and Seth's friends and family were so much fun...
That we had to find a great way to show them off. Viola! A favorite!
Then it was time for a few of just the newlyweds.
Kate and Seth brought a frame along...
Louis loved it!
The mill is so rustic and beautiful...
One at night...
Time for the reception...
And the first dance.
A little more dancing!?! ;-)
Was followed by some cake cutting...
And then singing the night away!
Kate and Seth, congratulations and thank you for asking me to document your wedding day! I am so happy for you and hope we get the chance to work together in the future. With appreciation ~Kristine
