Now this might come as a shock but Joy is not a Senior in high school as she looks . . she is one of my Young models! She looks so mature for her age but yet can still have the innocent laughter and fun of a pre-highschooler. I've known this family for years now, and I've been wanting to photograph Joy for quite some time so I was thrilled when her Mom contacted me. Those blue eyes!!! Look out Jill and John, . . you might have to chase the boys away with a stick!
Oh how I love this age group!! What beauties I had to work with during the Young Model Shoot this weekend. Thankfully the rain held off for a day so we could get this shoot in before the 6 days of rain that are coming!! They would have had to use a boat instead of a bike for a prop! I think what I love most about this age group is the fact that I get to watch them grow . . and mature and blossom into young women! Then, hopefully I will get to shoot them as my Senior Models in 3 or 4 years!!
I know I've already written a short blog post about this beautiful wedding but I wanted to include a few more of their special pictures that help tell the full story of the day. There were so many photos to choose from, it was hard to narrow down my favorites. Here they are though, at this beautiful venue, one of my favorites in Northern Virginia, Airlie Resort. I truly was honored that Brandon & Taylor chose me as their photographer and I will enjoy watching their continued love story for years to come.
