Clifton Inn

Carissa and Ron’s stunning Clifton Inn wedding was one of our favorites of this year! The whole day was such an intimate and special affair and we loved getting to spend time with the couple and their loved ones! Carissa and Ron had one of the sweetest first looks I’ve seen! It was evident how deep their love was and how excited they were to become husband and wife!

After their first look at Clifton, we went to the Lawn for a few wedding portraits at UVA, as the University is a very special place to Ron. It is always so fun to photograph couple in places that are meaningful to them! The reception was beautifully decorated with the gorgeous floral arrangements by the talented Amy Webb of Blue Ridge Floral Designs and we always have the best time working alongside wedding planners extraordinaire, Julianne and Mindy of Soiree.

Carissa’s mother’s toast was so thoughtful and touching, setting the mood for the rest of the night! Their intimate dinner led into a fun night of dancing with DJ Greg Tutwiler of 20 South Productions. It really was a magical night!

Congratulations, Carissa and Ron! We wish you a wonderful marriage and life together!

We always feel so honored to be a part of Elopements and small weddings as they are such an intimate and special occasion! Beka and Jon’s gorgeous Elopement was one we will never forget! Aaron had a wonderful time with this stunning couple at The Inn at Meander Plantation and we are so excited to share these photos with you!

Professional elopement wedding photography is a wonderful investment, as it captures intimate memories to be treasured forever by the couple as well as friends and family not present at the ceremony. If you are planning on eloping, we would highly suggest setting aside some time to be photographed together on your special day.  This will provide you with beautiful photographs for your home and gifts for your loved ones! For example we absolutely love the album and the beautiful canvas gallery wraps that Beka and Jon chose to hang in their home, which we featured below. Please do not hesitate to email us at to hear about the elopement packages we have to offer!

Congratulations, Beka and Jon! We wish you all the best in your marriage and life together!
