I’m Stephanie, a wedding + lifestyle photographer based in Destin, Florida and Warrenton, Virginia. Whether I’m by the mountains in Virginia or the ocean on the Florida Gulf Coast, my soul feels 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!

Best of 2020 | Virginia Wedding Bridal Details

It’s about that time to share my favorite 2020 wedding photos before the 2021 wedding kicks off in April!! 🙂 If you want to check out other “Best of 2021” blog posts, see more portraits HERE! To start the wedding segment of this series, I’m sharing my favorite Virginia wedding bridal details! You get to see some of the trends from last year from the jewelry, dresses, invites, bouquets, and color choices. After all, it’s fun to see pretty inspiration from other couples!! 🙂

I was so impressed by my 2020 couples!! They fought through obstacles that I never imagined happening in the wedding industry. Whether they postponed, cut down their guest list, celebrate the pre-wedding events in creative ways … they made it happen! I’m grateful that I was able to photograph some joyful events last year! <3 Vendors came together as a team to deliver a beautiful and successful event for our couples last year. And that’s what being a business owner in this industry is all about — SERVING!! 🙂 I’m looking forward to photographing many more successful weddings this year. For now, I’m celebrating my 2020 couples!!

I’m loving all of the pretty bling … colors ranging from neutrals to jewel tones … and textures like delicate lace and fluffy tulle. There’s inspiration for the boho, bold, simple, and feminine bride! Enjoy checking out my favorite bridal details from last year!
