when we started talking to alexis & drew it did not take long to know they were our kind of couple. they wanted to have a fun relaxed wedding day and photography was very important to them. they were willing to spend the time and worked with us to develop a wedding day timeline to shoot in ideal conditions. when we started researching their venue, the cliffs at glassy chapel we soon realized this would be an iconic day.
the day started beautifully with a partially cloudy sky, my favorite for shooting outside, and just about the time we starting doing portraits of alexis & drew some ominous clouds started rolling in. the wind was crazy and rain impending. at first i was a little bummed that we would not have any blue sky for their portraits, but that bummed feeling went away as soon as i looked at the back of my camera. these moody thick gray clouds, the rolling hills of the blue ridge mountains and this amazing couple on top of glassy mountain all added up to a perfect recipe for some of our most dramatic wedding photos ever.
thank you alexis & drew for staying out with rain threatening, thank you for trekking down the side of the mountain, thank you for standing on the side of a cliff, and thank you most of all for making our job so fun and very rewarding.
if you are planning your wedding for the cliffs at glassy chapel, we would love to chat with you about your wedding photography. we would be happy to pack our cameras and travel to this beautiful destination to be your wedding photographers.
