Every so often I’ll arrive to shoot a wedding and as the bride pulls her dress out of it’s garment bag, it stops me in my tracks. Anna’s dress was exactly like that- I LOVED the drop waist, the delicate crochet detailing, the elegant cut. Everything about it was gorgeous. And then Anna put it on and everyone around her started squealing- it was so perfect for her! Her sweet, southern self was giggly and giddy, ready to rush out and meet her groom for their first look. Because the day’s schedule became a little bit crunched, we unfortunately didn’t have much time for bridal portrait on Matt & Anna’s wedding day, so Anna and I scheduled a “day-after” bridal session to give her another chance to put her dress on! YESSS! Y’all know how much I love bridal sessions :).

Anna’s a wedding photographer in the Frederick, MD area, so she knows how to work in front of the camera. I could photograph her all day!! She’s absolutely stunning, has the cutest little laugh, and her soft smile? It’s killer. We met up in Leesburg on a cloudy fall afternoon for what have definitely become some new favorites of mine.

    Thank you so much Abby! You are such an artist! I started to tear up when I saw these for the first time… and second time… and I’m sure a third time tomorrow when I show my grandmother at Thanksgiving!

    You gave me such an incredible experience and made me feel beautiful! My wedding day was so lovely and exciting, but having this bridal session gave me a chance to breathe and really enjoy being a bride! It was the perfect thing to do before putting away my wedding dress. Thank for creating and capturing all these beautiful, sweet, and joyful moments! Love you girl.
