Best of 2019 | Virginia + Florida Wedding Party Portraits

We are slowly but surely getting through the “Best of 2019” series! ๐Ÿ™‚ And today, we are tackling some of my MANY favorite Virginia + Florida Wedding Party Portraits!!! If you want to know why it’s important to have the wedding party photographed, check it out HERE!

Because the wedding day is a joyful occasion, we are bound to have a good time! Especially when it comes to taking photos of the bride and groom with their best friends. Even with different personality types, you would be surprised by the energy that happens in front of my camera! As I look through these photos below, I love seeing the laughter and smiles BEAMING from everyone!! My job is to bring high energy so we can have FUN during this part of the day! ๐Ÿ™‚ Although, it can be challenging when we are crunched on time, especially when the B&G have large wedding parties. But I have a system to deliver a variety of photos during those crunched timelines. It has saved me when our planned 30-minutes turned into 10-minutes. ๐Ÿ™‚ And you would NEVER know when looking through these photos which wedding was running behind on schedule. Everything always works out. ๐Ÿ™‚

2019 Wedding Party Trends

And the vote is in!! It looks like blue, pink, burgundy, and purple were the most popular wedding party colors for 2019! Some mixed it up with different styles, shades, and even prints. I love that every couple has their preference/vision for their special day. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also saw a few of my favorite jewelry designer’s accessories worn by the ladies! You cannot go wrong withย Kendra Scott necklaceย orย earringsย as a classic bridesmaid gift! My couples have great taste. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Enjoy checking out some of my favorite Virginia + Florida wedding party portraits from 2019!

Cheers to best friends!!!!
