A few weekends ago Jessie and Patrick were married, so now I can finally share Jessie’s AMAZING bridal portraits!

When I met Jessie for her bridal session at The Homestead in Hot Springs, VA, I knew that we were going to have a blast. The Homestead has endless spots to shoot beautiful photos, and with Jessie’s classic bridal look it couldn’t have been more perfect (and her dress had pockets!). Jessie is also absolutely delightful to work with, and by the end of her session our faces hurt from smiling so much. You could tell that Jessie just radiated joy because people couldn’t help but stop and tell her how absolutely stunning she was. One man even jumped into a picture with her, how funny!

One particularly fun moment was when we were walking into the lobby from taking pictures outside and to our surprise Monte, from Say Yes to the Dress was standing there! He said he had been admiring Jessie’s dress choice while we had been taking pictures on the steps, and he made sure to praise her choice of a dress with a keyhole back. Of course, we made sure to snap a picture of them together!

It has been such a joy to be part of such an exciting time in Jessie and Patrick’s life, and I have loved working with them! I can’t wait to see what life has in store for this wonderful couple!
