Words can’t accurately describe how excited I am about sharing this styled shoot on the blog today. I love styled shoots because they allow creatives to collaborate and create beautiful work that will inspire future couples as they plan their dream wedding.
The shoot highlights all things special to Virginia and embodies that “Virginia is for Lovers.” Everything was planned and designed by Nilsa from Emerald Events by Nilsa. Nilsa’s attention to detail is UNMATCHED! We photographed the shoot at Richmond Main Street Station, a historic train station in the state capital. The shoot featured colorful florals along with elegant ceremony and reception attire for our couple.
A particularly unique element of our shoot was the way we were able to incorporate popular Virginia foods. Our appetizers were oysters (since VA is nicknamed the Oyster Capital of the East Coast) and we ended with a delicious southern Apple Cobbler. Also, every wedding needs a great cocktail! We knew spiked peanut punch would be the perfect signature cocktail to highlight everyone’s love for Virginia peanuts. All of these little details added up to create a beautiful Vintage Virginia Glam shoot!

She was so easy and calming to work with, as it was my first branding session. She led me throughout the way and the images are perfect! “
"I am certain that because Jontell got to know me and my brand up front, it allowed her to capture exactly what I wanted.
