Jacqueline & Jake’s beautiful Jewish Wedding at Keswick Hall is very special to me for many reasons! Two years ago I had the opportunity to photograph her sister, Alex’s wedding to Whit in Washington DC! So when their mom, Paula, called me last year to tell me that Jacqueline was engaged and having a Charlottesville Jewish Wedding at Keswick Hall, I was thrilled! I’ve become close with their family, and it’s been such an honor being a part of both sisters’ weddings! Not to mention how incredible Whit & Jake are … two of the nicest guys you will meet!
Thank you Jacqueline, Jake, Paula, Louis, Alex, Whit (and to the Huffmans and Schindelheims) for having us be a part of your wonderful celebrations! I hope we continue to receive more phone calls with great news, and get to photograph many more wonderful occasions for you!
The reaction of Jacqueline’s bridesmaids when they saw her for the first time was priceless! We love the new trend of a first look with the bridesmaids!
Jacqueline and Jake had a magical first look by the Keswick Hall infinity pool. It was a heartfelt moment as Jake saw his bride for the first time.
No detail was overlooked with Jacqueline & Jake’s Charlottesville Jewish Wedding at Keswick Hall! We loved the J & J topiary!
Our two amazing couples and their wonderful parents!
The signing of the Ketubah! Jake’s family is Orthodox Jewish, which meant that Jacqueline & Jake signed separately. Some of Jake’s family came all the way from Israel!

Thankfully the rain held off, so they could have an outdoor ceremony. Unfortunately, we were not spared when we reached the golf course for portraits. Thank you Jacqueline for braving the rain for these beautiful bridal portraits!
Cakes by Rachel always makes delicious Charlottesville wedding cakes! The detail in this cake was very soft and romantic.
Keswick Hall served their Orthodox guests Kosher food for their Charlottesville Jewish Wedding at Keswick Hall.
We love working with Maureen McKenna at Just a Little Ditty! She is an amazing Charlottesville event planner. Loved having the entire reception under this beautiful tent!
Such a romantic atmosphere with the rain and the mountains in the surroundings.
