Blush and Gold Wedding at Salamander Resort Danielle and Matt | Middleburg, VA


My busy fall shooting season has officially kicked off!!! I couldn’t have asked for a better start than Danielle and Matt’s beautiful day at Salamander Resort! I met Danielle and Matt at their engagement session earlier this spring and we had the best time. They were such naturals in front of the camera and just FUN to spend time with! I also ADORE the venue they chose for their wedding. My family and I vacation their often – and it’s one of my personal favorite places to get away to! I knew without a shadow of a doubt that it would be a beautiful day…and it WAS! But it was also so special, joyful and a true celebration of Danielle and Matt!

The weather was perfect, the reception space and details were jaw-dropping and Danielle and Matt were so wonderful. I am SO grateful to have clients who completely trust me and are laid back and relaxed on their wedding day, even if things run late or go wrong (which they almost always do!) We ran about an hour behind in the morning but STILL managed to get tons of beautiful portraits and first looks with everyone that was important to Danielle. It was amazing!

Danielle and Matt: Thank you for inviting me into such a special season of your life. I am SO grateful for you both and I hope you enjoy some of my favorites as much as I do!!!
