Best of 2020 | Virginia Wedding Portraits

This post has to be one of my favorites when it comes to the “Best of” series!!! šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚ So much joy, excitement, and enthusiasm for the new title of “Mr.” and “Mrs.!” And when it comes to my 2020 couples, there’s a reason for the enthusiasm more than ever before!! So many obstacles they had to overcome, and I’m honored to have been a part of the big celebration!!! So today, I’m sharing my favorite Virginia wedding portraits from 2020. šŸ™‚ We are nearing the end of the series, and I’m excited to start wrapping up with this beautiful post!!! And believe me, there’s a LOT of beauty when it comes to these couples!!!

Each of these couples made my job “easy” when it came to the portrait time of the day! Whether or not they did a first look, we made the best of our time together. šŸ™‚ As you’ll see below, there’s no mistake in how much love is in the air!!! And goodness… between the darling couples, beautiful attire, and jaw-dropping backdrops, I love admiring these celebrations all over again!! Also, I gotta love me some pretty veil photos!!! There was a lot of veil action last year and I LOVED it!! Enjoy checking out some of my MANY favorite wedding portraits from last year!
