LGBTQ Wedding Styled Shoot | Feminist Photo Vacay | Catskills Mountains | Destination Wedding Photographer

I have to say, this summer has been AHHH-MAZINGGG!! I spent the last week of July in the Catskills Mountains attending a Feminist Photo Vacay. Yep! Sounds amazing? Yeah, it really was! Over the course of a week I met an incredible group of feminist folx, lounged poolside at an EPIC house in the mountains, drank way too much sparkling water and ended our time together capturing magic at Scribner’s Lodge. Scribner’s Lodge is stunning! I would honestly love to go back just to relax. The decor, aesthetic, staff and landscape was phenomenal.

I attended the C & N mentoring workshop led by Caitlin Taylor of Coral Dove Photography and Nicole Babcock of Nicole Babcock Photography. GUYSSSS! This was just the fun, creative and unique experience I was needing and craving as an artist. This is session two of three.

Mrs. + Mrs. Palmer | The Barns At Timberneck | Surry, Va.

Julie and Kelly gathered their closest family and friends at The Barns at Timberneck to celebrate their wedding.  The weather was gorgeous.  We were expecting rain the whole weekend but we were surprised with cool temps. and moody clouds.  My fave! Julie and Kelly arrived to the venue together with their bridesmaids and bridesmen then separated after an hour into their own dressing suites. They were surrounded by their party and parents as they both slipped into their gowns.  

Harry Potter details were found all around!  

Instead of a first look, Julie and Kelly exchanged letters behind a barn door before the ceremony.

And they were off to get MARRIED! The ceremony was filled with tears, tons of laughter and happiness. So much happiness. 

After the ceremony they took a moment to themselves before portraits. More tears were shed and veils were fixed. It was a little windy so during the ceremony there were veils flying everywhere. 

The reception was intimate and fun!  Toast were given and songs sang by Kelly's father. As the night went on and the gin and tonic was poured, the dance floor filled up and everyone got down. Like... down low! The party went on until their colorful glow stick exit.
