Being an emerging professional photographer, I am incredibly blessed with the opportunities I have been presented this year alone - to grow and learn in more ways than I could possibly have imagined even a year or two ago. I was contacted by Ally in January 2015 to photograph her special day in Pounding Mill, Virginia.
Ally and Stephen were fantastically blessed with a beautiful, warm July day to celebrate their love and unite in holy matrimony. The ceremony took place at Claypool Hill Church of Christ, situated on a hill with the mountainous landscape providing a lovely backdrop to the summer day. Ally and her bridesmaids prepped for the upcoming ceremony at her mother's house while Stephen and his groomsmen got ready at his parents' household, which were all within a stone's throw to the church, making traveling to and fro a breeze.
After the ceremony, the wedding guests gathered at Belfast-Rosedale Volunteer Fire Department for the reception to celebrate Ally and Stephen's happy union. It was indeed a joyous day. Congratulations once more to Ally and Stephen Mitchell!
