Wedding at the Homestead, Hot Springs, VA – Mary & Patrick | Wedding Photography

Just so you know, the Homestead is in the middle of nowhere which makes it cool to me.  Whipping through the mountain passes and poof! all of a sudden there is this awesome resort hotel staring at you in your face.  Bizarre yet awesome at the same time.  A perfect place for a wedding I’d say!  Mary & Patrick sure thought so and I can’t think of a better place myself.  You may recognize Mary from a previous post HERE but alas! you’d be oh so wrong.  We recently photographed her twin sister’s wedding with (imagine that!) the same results – killer pics of a stunning couple.  This was Mary & Patrick’s day and it turned out glorious with cool breezes and trees showing the beginnings of their fall colors.  We had a terrific time meeting Patrick’s family for the first time and Mary’s family again after just a few weeks apart.  Her dress from Pure English Bridal was perfect for her and the ambiance of The Homestead.  The flowers by Country Garden Florist had the Homestead look and smelling delightful. Here’s a few other folks who made the day spectacular: DJ: Richard Green Entertainment Lighting & Decor: Posh Event Firm Hair & Makeup: Onyx Premier Hair Salon Linens: BBJ Linens Cake: The WildFlour Here’s a few shots from their spectacular day!  

Houston Workshop

As many of you know we bounce around the country teaching our “No Rules” philosophy to whomever will listen. Houston gathered 80 of their finest photographers for our workshop last month and we got down and dirty with everything from marketing & business strategies to off-camera lighting & posing. We always cram a ton of info in our all-day workshops and this was no different – lots of questions, shooting and a few puzzled looks (yes, we saw you….!) Check out where we are headed next here and put down your pre-conceptions and join us! Here’s a few shots from the Houston No Rules Workshop. Stay tuned for some sweetness from Orlando!
