I photographed Tiffany and Dan’s beautiful fall wedding at the boathouse in Prospect Park, NYC a few years ago and I was thrilled when I found out that they were having a little boy!  I love being a family’s photographer for life and heading up to NYC to photograph their newborn baby boy was the perfect way to start 2017.

I love how Tiffany decorated the nursery.  If you are looking for nautical nursery inspiration check out these photos!  It was the perfect place in their Brooklyn apartment for photos and Arthur is one lucky little boy to have parents this awesome.  (Tiffany made that entire quilt by HAND!  No sewing machine!) And of course Arthur’s big puppy brother had to get in on all the photos too.  Arthur is going to have so much fun chasing him around the apartment when he is older.

Congratulations again Tiffany & Dan!  Arthur is perfect!  I know you think he has already grown so much but just wait another month, or three, or a year and then look back on these photos and you will see how little he really was and how much he as learned!  It’s going to be a wild, crazy, fun, awesome year watching him learn.  I cannot wait to hear all about it!

No one ever wants to think about rain on their wedding day, but sometimes it happens.  It’s always good to have a backup plan (and Elizabeth & Rich did) but oftentimes at outdoor weddings the clouds make the view even more beautiful.  So despite the rain showers all day Elizabeth & Rich decided to be brave and keep the ceremony outside.  Who can blame them with the fabulous view at Bluemont Vineyard?!  Right before the ceremony started the rain started up again but somehow the sun came out too and a rainbow appeared!  (If you look the photos below you will see a photo of Elizabeth’s mom walking down the aisle, her face was what clued me in!)  The huge double rainbow hung over them for the entire ceremony.  It was so beautiful!  Everyone is so glad that they decided to brave the rain and go outside.  They never would have gotten a rainbow without it!

Congratulations again Elizabeth & Rich!  Your wedding was lovely, your girls are precious and the two of you are wonderful together.  Here is to many many wonderful years ahead!

The other day I tried to remember when I first met Elly and I couldn’t remember.  But I do know it’s been a while!  We first met back in NYC and I was so excited when I heard she was marrying Joe!  They both traveled all the way down to Virginia so that we could do their engagement photos and so I could finally meet Joe.  I am so glad they came!  We found the most beautiful secret garden to take photos in and since it had been raining all day (thanks Hurricane Matthew) we had the place all to ourselves.  Thankfully the rain let up and we were able to grab some great engagement photos before the sun set.

Elly you are gorgeous and Joe is just the sweetest, most caring, and also incredibly smart guy.  I cannot wait for your wedding next summer!  🙂

Nora & Josh had a beautiful summer wedding at the Harvest House at Lost Creek Winery in Leesburg, VA.  As a wedding photographer with a passion for outdoor weddings I am used to shooting in all kinds of weather but this was the hottest day of the year!  It was 100 degrees outside with a heat index of 118 and everyone still went outside for photos and the ceremony. I am so glad that they did because Harvest House is a beautiful place for an outdoor wedding and we got some amazing photos!
Nora & Josh are the sweetest couple and had the most amazing group of friends and family celebrating with them.  They travel from all over the world to get there, which is a testament to how wonderful these two are together.  I had the hardest time picking just a few photos for this blog post. I wanted to share them all!  Nora & Josh, congratulations again on your marriage!  I know you will have many fabulous years ahead!  I cannot wait to see you again and photograph you for your anniversary in the future.  You are two of the most incredible people I’ve every met and it was a joy to spend the day with you and your friends.

    Sherri Butler - The pictures are gorgeous! You did an incredible job. Thank you!

The problem with Pinterest and wedding blogs is that they create unrealistic expectations and put too much pressure on weddings.  It is so easy to get caught up in looking at all the beautiful photos that you forget that you are looking at the prettiest photos from over 2 Million weddings that take place each year.  Stop and think about that.  The most popular photos on the Pinterest (and therefore the one most likely pinned to one of your boards) are the best photos from multiple MILLIONS of weddings (just in the U.S.) in the last few years.  As wedding blogs and Pinterest have become more popular I’ve seen a change in weddings over the last five years.  Brides have become more focused on the details of the day… on trying to make sure that their wedding is Style Me Pretty worthy.  They worry about how perfect their fiancee’s reaction will be during the first look.  If there is one thing I wish that all of my couples could remember it’s that all of that pressure and focus on being perfect is not worth it.  I have worked weddings that had six figure budgets and others that had almost no budget.  And they are ALL beautiful.  I mean that.  The beauty at a wedding comes from the joy.  It comes from celebrating a marriage with the people you love.  It doesn’t not come from the perfect escort cards or the exact color ribbon.  Those details truly don’t matter.  And when you look back on your photos in 10 or 20 or even more years the ones that will mean the most to you are the ones that show you with your family.  The ones that show the joy and relationships… not what shoes you wore.

 

If I could offer any advice to couples planning their wedding it would be to stop looking at pinterest and wedding blogs.  To stop caring about having all the things and focus on your relationship.  Be yourself, be relaxed, and enjoy the day that will be perfect, Rain or shine, because it is the day that your marriage begins.
