Bridal Shoot on the Campus of Washington and Lee University

Categories Real Weddings

College sweethearts, Dale and Amy went to Southern Virginia University. They played sports, learned a few things, and fell in love. Wanting to incorporate their college experience into their wedding, Amy and Dale envisioned time alone before their ceremony. Something soft, romantic, special … just the two of them before they said, “I Do”. They opted for a bridal shoot near their wedding site, on the beautiful and historic campus of Virginia’s Washington and Lee University. Captured by {BMW} Photography Amy and Dale’s bridal shoot is peaceful and intimate. What a great idea for a first look and pre-ceremony photographs! Enjoy this beautiful couple–on the grounds of this lovely campus.

Congrats Amy and Dale!

A Wintry, Sparkly Love Shoot!

Categories Real Weddings

Looking for a unique photo op to celebrate your winter engagement? Most couples choose the warmer months for their engagement sessions–for obvious reasons. It’s warmer! But, think about all the possibilities with a winter photo shoot.

1. Nature’s neutral color palette is incredibly gorgeous during winter and provides the perfect backdrop for your photos.
2. You can wear fun, fashionable accessories i.e. scarves, mittens, hats, earmuffs, tights, boots, etc.
3. You can incorporate winter’s favorite toys & activities: sleds, snowmen, snowshoes, snowball fights!
4. Textures of winter From nature slowing down in town and on the prairie to frost, snow & icicles …
5. You can make a night of it and take advantage of all the pretty, colorful holiday lights.

Winter is Tori and Peter’s favorite season and as such, used all the fun and interesting aspects of the season in their engagement shoot. Here they are, on the lovely grounds of Meadowlark Botanical Gardens amidst the beautiful textures and dazzling colors. Enjoy!
