Alex & Taylor | Sky Meadows Park, Virginia Maternity Portrait Photographer

I’m Stephanie Messick, a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Warrenton, VA. Whether I’m by the mountains in Virginia or the ocean on the Florida Gulf Coast, my soul feels right at home, surrounded by rural living and the raw beauty of nature. I genuinely love what I do, and feel so passionate to share the enthusiasm and joy of these celebrations with you!

light chaser, dreamer, go-getter.

You have to recognize these cuties on the blog today after seeing their stunning Sky Line Drive engagement portraits and their Market at Grelen wedding! 🙂 Oh, they know the way to my heart with pretty views!!! And the sunsets they had — GOODNESS. Unreal. They need to tell us what their secret is to having sunshine follow them around. 😉 Even for this session, we were anticipating rain and somehow the sun started to shine halfway through our time together! 🙂 Definitely blessed!!!

I love Alex and Taylor’s story, hearts, and dreams! Now their dreams involve little sweet Asher coming in less than FIVE weeks! <3 Ah! I can only imagine the excitement and the wonder Taylor and Alex must be feeling during this much anticipated time. They are going to be amazing parents and I cannot wait to watch their family grow over the years ahead! I’m so grateful they had me document their milestones in their lives, including this big milestone. I cannot wait to see photos pop up on social media when their baby arrives!!! SO SOON!

Thank you, Taylor and Alex, for having me document this special time of your lives!!! I cannot believe you’ll be holding onto baby Asher SOON! Crazy how the time flew by, but I’m sure Asher is just as excited to meet you. <3 I hope you find some time to rest before the big debut! Love you both! CONGRATS!!!!
