These two loves stood their ground against #hurricaneflorence and their wedding day is a GO! Leia’s humans are getting MARRIED today!! I can’t wait to see these two say “I do” today - they’re near and dear to my heart and I can’t wait for life to slow down just a little so we can finally have those double dates we always talk about! I hope today is everything you hope it will be, you guys!! >>><<<

They've shut down and evacuated #shenandoahnationalpark as Florence's outer fun makes its way into our area. The wind is already starting to whip here, so it only felt appropriate to share one of my favorite windy shots in my favorite place! >>><<<

I don't know about you all, but with all of this current rain and #hurricaneflorence heading in, I'm looking forward to holding onto the last of that warm summer light. Even if it means I have to wait another week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A day very near and dear to my heart. I've known him since he was 14, my babies have nicknames for him, and knowing he has this beautiful soul as his wife makes my heart so incredibly happy. The tears behind the camera were a bit stronger on Saturday at this elopement, and it's because I know that there's another love in the family that'll grow grander than those blue ridges behind them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The warm late summer sun, the hazy blue of the mountains, and silly little cheek nibbles. In these moments, nothing else matters. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I'd like to say that, to me, this photo sort of wraps up my vision of marriage and a life lived together. The adventure. The steady, rushing water, the way that life tends to come rushing at you in a beautiful, messy, wild sort of way. The still. The quiet moments you should take to love each other, to hold each other, and just be together. US. Tuesday's elopement in the mountains was such a beautiful, wild way for Lexi and Adam to begin their married life together, and I hope Sunrise to sunset, we spent the day exploring, hiking, and taking every bit of these moments in.

There's something incredibly special about their love. Respectful. Gentle. Chivalrous. Giving, balanced, and romantic. In the words of Lyndsay, "Ben is her strength in her weakness and she is his compass for his direction." Their absolutely incredible wedding day was full of surprises. There was lighting, thunder, and rainbows...but never any rain...and it was simply magical. Their wedding day will be on the blog next week, but while I'm traveling for two elopements this week, I HAD to sneak this irresistible light and this amazing couple! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

May you always walk in sunshine. 
May you never want for more. 
May Irish angels rest their wings 
Right beside your door.
May your troubles be less, 
And your blessings be more. 
And nothing but happiness, 
Come through your door.

I've been good, you guys. I've held off on decorating for fall and breaking out my fall wardrobe, and for two reasons. 1. This weather insinuates NOTHING about fall approaching. lol 2. I want more beachy sessions like this. Seriously. I'm ready for the fall in big ways, but I need more time in the water and on the beach! Who else is holding onto summery sessions but is ready for the fall? It's a struggle! lol
