Today we are sharing Audrey + Miguel’s Ashland, Virginia Wedding. They were married on October 21, 2108, at Shady Grove United Methodist Church in Short Pump. Following their beautiful church wedding, they celebrated with friends and family at the Hanover Arts & Activities Center. Jamie shared his thoughts on their big day, as it was a special moment in his photographing career as well.

Here is what Jamie had to say:

When I photographed my first wedding at the age of 15, I never imagined how many years I would be photographing them.  On this particular day, I photographed the daughter of a couple whom I had photographed their wedding. This is now my second wedding client where I have started into the next generation of recording and preserving the special events in their lives.

Audrey and Miguel’s wedding is just that, a step into the next generation’s memory preservation.  I remember the day when I received the phone call to photograph this special day.  Audrey’s parents, Terry and Jerry, were so excited to know that their daughter’s wedding photography would be created by me and I was very honored to have been chosen.

We started the journey by creating their stunning engagement photos at Virginia Beach and the botanical garden nearby.  Miguel owns a landscaping maintenance company and these locations were very special to them. We followed with Audrey’s beautiful bridal portraits before we moved on to their actual big day. The ceremony was held in her childhood church and then to the reception at a cultural art center, set in the quaint town of Ashland.  This location is a client of Miguel’s and so perfect, as Terry, Audrey’s mom, is a wonderful artist and instructor.

The day started with a few clouds, however, by the end of the ceremony, there were rays of bright sunshine streaming into the church windows, just as Audrey and Miguel kissed. It was absolutely perfect.

After a few large group shots of each family and some fun shots on the front stairs of the architecturally perfect church stoop, we headed to the reception. The Hanover Arts & Activities Center was accented with table arrangements, wedding signs, and favors – all handmade by the Audrey and Terry.

Good food, a little tequila and a second tres leches cake insured that no one would leave hungry.

During the first dance, Audrey and Miguel lit up the dance floor that was full of fog and twinkle lights. This set the stage for an evening of special toasts, dances, and traditions that intertwined both families and cultures. When Jerry danced with both this daughter and his wife it brought tears to my eyes knowing that I was there for the beginning of Terry and Jerry’s lives together. Now I was repeating the same for Audrey and Miguel.

Everyone filled the dance floor for every song. There were traditional wedding tunes, lines dances, and melodic Mexican music and dances that were enjoyed by all.

Droste Family Fall Portrait Session

The Droste Family Fall Portrait Session was a complete success. They joined us at our Richmond, VA studio to get the perfect image for an oil portrait of their family. Sarah and Billy understand the importance of our heirloom portraits and their final image is going to look amazing in their foyer. This is a portrait that is going to be part of their legacy for many years to come.

While capturing the perfect image of their family, we also took some shots of Sydney and Luke. They both had amazing energy and were a delight to photograph. Luke’s silly dances and laughter made Jamie reflect back on the days when Jax (his godson, Mary’s son) was Luke’s age. Jamie could see a lot of Jax in Luke and it really makes you value children at this age. Sydney was adorable as well. She made sure Luke was “behaving”, she was a great big sister.

The cool blue color palette was intentional. The final product is going to serve as the perfect welcoming piece in their front entrance. It makes our hearts sing when families trust us to deliver the perfect heirloom piece to represent their family.

If you are considering a family portrait we encourage you to give Hayes & Fisk a call. We will sit down with you for a consultation and walk you through every step of the process. We will make it as seamless as possible. From our initial consultation to portrait installation, you will feel like part of the Hayes & Fisk family. Don’t hesitate another moment, give Mary and Jamie a call today. We promise you will be glad you did.

Before we share the beautiful images from Brittany and Greg’s wedding, we want to share the images from their Starr Hill Vineyard & Winery Engagement Session with you today. It was a hazy, humid summer evening and we had a great time running around their wedding venue. Starr Hill Vineyard & Winery has beautiful grassy fields graced with gorgeous old oak trees and rows and rows of apple trees. We also had the fortune to have Brittany’s dog Hailey join us for the session. After spending the day here, it reminded us of how peaceful and beautiful the Blue Ridge Mountains are in the background of such a gorgeous setting. We just knew their fall wedding would be picture perfect at this venue.

Jamie has been photographing Brittany since she was 19. We first met her at Bella Rosa Bridal Salon, where she worked as a consultant. For the past several years, we have been working closely with Brittany as she worked for Jennifer McBride, as a wedding consultant. Our brides loved her and now it is so much fun watching her get to be the bride. Before Brittany even had a ring, she secretly told Jamie that when she was engaged she would have no one other than Hayes & Fisk photograph her wedding. She said that we have been photographing her for most of her adult life and she couldn’t think of anyone other than Hayes & Fisk Photography to be a part of her big day. It is such a joy and honor to document her trip down the aisle. Greg is so wonderful, the perfect compliment to her bubbly personality.

Check out our Facebook page for a sneak peek of images from their wedding. We will be sharing a complete blog post last this month!
