Downtown Richmond Wedding || Brandon & Emily

Brandon & Emily’s Downtown Richmond wedding…where do I start? This was my last wedding of 2018, and even though I say I don’t have favorites, this one just might be!

When I first met Brandon & Emily at a coffee shop in Richmond this spring, I immediately thought, “I REALLY want to work with them!” They are so considerate and thoughtful of others, and the love they have for each other is quiet and deep. I love the way Brandon looked at Emily the entire day; he couldn’t take his eyes off of her! This day was long anticipated, and it was all so perfect. Brandon & Emily are both JMU alumni and most of the bridal party were as well! There was so much and energy and enthusiasm from the group as they supported their friends on their wedding day.
I’m excited to share my favorites with you!

Gorgeous details….and look at the engraving on the ring!

You hear a lot about a first look with the Bride and Groom. But a first look with your bridesmaids?! YES! I think this should become a tradition!

A gift from the groom…

Emily has so much joy!!

I say every first look is the best. But this one really is!

Brandon and Emily had scheduled lot of time for portraits after the first look. I absolutely loved that! It meant that we weren’t rushed, and that they had time to just talk together before the wedding.

The church where they got married had beautiful architecture and landscape, and by late afternoon the sun was all golden. So pretty!

No dull moments with this bridal party!

I love how Brandon is looking at Emily while she looks at her new wedding band.
