Ashley + Dusty :: FALLen In LOVE.

Fall may be my new favorite season. Last weekend, in the midst of all the fallen burnt colored leaves, Ashley and Dusty celebrated their wedding at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, VA. The scene was straight out of a movie. Rows of dark reds and bright oranges….old wooden fences…..a long dusty path…..a classic white Rolls Royce….and an inseperable bride and groom. It was then I was so thankful that Michelle Lindsay asked me to shoot this wedding with her.

Ashley and Dusty opted to do a First Look- seeing each other before the ceremony so that the first time Dusty saw Ashley would be a private and intimate one. They met in front of the sweetest vintage white chapel….and as soon as Dusty turned around to look at her for the first time, I saw Ashley’s eyes go glassy. The telltale sign that tears were coming…and sure enough they did 🙂

It was the perfect fall day made for a wedding. And behind the scenes, Michelle and Kim were celebrating their last wedding of the 2009 season…which made the day that much more fun and bittersweet!!! I do want to give an official apology to Michelle for almost ending our lives when we had 15 minutes to get the bridal party back to the reception and a car almost hit us head on from the other side of the road! I was making an extremely illegal u turn in order to get my tank of a Pathfinder over the curb and onto the grass onto an area that was clearly not made for parking….but hey why have an SUV if you aren’t going to go off roading with it, right???  It was Extreme Photography to the fullest…but if you take a look at Michelle’s blog at her preview of the day, you will see that the illegal U turn was totally worth it when you see the shot she got! 

Here are some of my favorite pictures yet this season!
