Harrisonburg, Virginia * October 22, 2022

As soon as Sherylyn started telling me about her colors, I knew this was going to be one vibrant autumn wedding. I'd gone to church Sherylyn as a young child (and I think I even babysat her once or twice), so it was fun getting to know her as an adult. These two are the perfect compliment of lively and steady, and the day was such a joyful beginning to their lives together. We started soon after sunrise, and the beautiful light and changing leaves merged perfectly with the wedding colors.

The guests thoroughly enjoyed the cotton candy and doughnuts at the reception, both young and old alike! The doughnut board startled the doughnut servers a little by nearly toppling over. Thankfully, some strong guys with tools came to the rescue and averted the catastrophe. Receptions where everyone is relaxed and having a good time are the best, and this was definitely one of those. 

Morgan & Sherylyn, thank you for allowing me to document your beautiful day!

Bradley & Jennifer's Wedding https://www.waldronportraits.com/blog/2022/7/bradley-jennifers-wedding-story June 10, 2022

Lewisburg, PA


The best love stories are worth waiting for.

When a couple chooses God's timing for their happily ever after, there is always an extra big dose of joy.

Bradley and Jennifer couldn't have picked a more perfect June day for the beginning of the next chapter in their lives. When Jennifer told me about the historic church they were getting married in, I knew it was going to be an epic wedding. But it wasn't the location or the beautiful dress or the delicious  food that made it so special. It was the people. Jennifer and Bradley are so easy to talk to and eager to share about what God has done in their lives, and their families were the same way.

When Jennifer contacted me, I had already agreed to second shoot at a wedding in Virginia the next day. I knew it was going to make for a crazy weekend, and I'm really grateful for everyone who helped make it possible. This wedding was totally worth losing some sleep over, and I'm so grateful to Bradley & Jennifer for inviting me into their day!

Girls, if you're worried that a first look will take away from the moment you walk down the aisle, that's one worry you can forget about. The first look was so joyful, but the walk down the aisle during the ceremony was even more emotional!

Jennifer told me at their engagement session that her little sister would be the most adorable flower girl. She was a pro, gleefully throwing petals and laughing as she did so! Just look at that face!

The bride and her mom and sisters sang a song during the ceremony, and it was BEAUTIFUL.

The cakes were as scrumptious as they looked! And Chipotle style meals are always yummy.

Open mike is one of my favorite times during the reception--lots of laughter, encouragement, and happy tears.  

Highly recommend doing some newly married golden hour photos! Especially if there are mountains anywhere around.

The sparkler sendoff was the perfect end to a perfect day!

Bradley & Jennifer, I loved documenting your beautiful day, and wish you the best as you serve God and tackle life together.

Thanks, too, to all the family and friends who made this wedding so lovely.

Justin & Brittany Wedding https://www.waldronportraits.com/blog/2020/8/justin-brittany-wedding Brittany & Justin care about other people and love to laugh, and that came through so clearly in their pictures. They were surrounded by friends, and open mike was one of the best parts of the day! Their wedding was so full of creative and personal details and really sweet moments. Enjoy this little peek of some favorites from their beautiful day.
If you're thinking about a first look with your bridesmaids, go for it! This was so much fun!!

Kudos to my husband for some terrific groom prep pictures! First Look with a fire truck? Yes, please!

Most of the day was cloudy, but the sun slipped out for a few portraits.

Brittney's laugh is contagious!
The bridal party pictures were all so much fun!

Bridal parties are supposed to be a party, right? So why not bring on the confetti and glitter and photobombing!

Love these beautiful families!!
 The ceremony was so beautiful. I love when the parents pray a prayer of blessing on their children. It's always so meaningful.

Cute, cute kiddos!


 Loved all the fireman touches at their reception!  And the cozy candlelit atmosphere.


The cake smash was epic!

Open mike is my favorite part of the reception!!

Best photobooth ever!

And then, they left.
