Mountain Ridge Bridal Session | Katy | Virginia Wedding Photographer

Katy is officially MARRIED! I am so excited I finally get to share these bridal portraits from a few weeks ago at Mountain Ridge Venue!

This was my first time shooting here and I loved every minute of it! This amazing venue is located in Rustburg, Virginia and is the perfect set up for unforgettable bridal portraits for such an overall amazing bride. Something I love as a photographer is having the option to shoot in multiple locations that ultimately fits my brides vision.

We first trekked through a bit of mud (with a white dress, ahh!) to get to the perfect lighting in a gorgeous field of pine trees. We then walked back to the barn and grabbed a few shots that showed some gorgeous barn doors that I knew would be symbolic for Katy and Matt’s wedding day.

Next, we moved to the woods before getting to our favorite location of the evening; the field! As a wedding photographer, when I find the most perfect location that I know my bride will love, it’s hard to control my excitement. So, I freaked out a bit, then had the get myself together. We spent most of our time there before grabbing a few shots on the gravel road leading back to the barn.

With that being said, I can’t go on without talking about the wonderful bride that was behind my camera. She ultimately made the locations pop and not to mention, it’s no secret that she’s absolutely stunning! She was an absolute dream to work with and made for such a fun and sweet session.

Reasons Katy and I love bridal sessions are that we got to spend about an hour and a half together and connect before the wedding day! We laughed and joked and she got to get some posing practice too. By the time the wedding came around, she was a pro. But, our favorite part was, it acted as an amazing hair and makeup trial!

Here are some of my favorites from this beautiful bride and her bridal session!

Stay tuned for this sweet brides beautiful wedding coming to the blog soon! I can’t wait to introduce you to Mr. and Mrs. Moser and their fun bridal party!
