Katlyn and Hayden’s wedding at Burlington Weddings and Events in Charles City, VA this past spring was a beautiful, classic event.

March nineteenth kicked off our 2022 wedding season back in Alisha’s home state of Virginia at Burlington Weddings and Events. This historic venue in Charles City is nestled right between Richmond and Williamsburg. It was the perfect backdrop for their traditional spring wedding. When I asked Katlyn why she loved the venue, she said: “I am a classy country girl at heart so this venue is the perfect combination and it beautifully displays the old southern charm of Virginia.”

The Details

Katlyn always loved the idea of a simple classy wedding. She chose to stick with traditional colors black and white In addition, she chose to accent with the green and gold. The beautiful fields surrounding the venue were a lush green, matching her color palette. Her beautiful florals were designed by M2 Flowers and More. The colors are reflected in the invitation suite as well. These were designed by the bride herself!

Before the Ceremony

The bride and bridesmaids prepared for the wedding in the adorable bridal cottage next to the primary, historic house. Katlyn’s beautiful gown was purchased at Ava Laurénne Bride. She fell in love the long, classic train and the luxurious fabric of the gown. Hair by Cynthia G and Makeup by Lou Stevens completed her bridal look. Her bridesmaids’ gowns were purchased from Azazie and the groom and groomsmens’ attire came from Generation Tux.

We were able to capture so many beautiful moments, even before the ceremony! Katlyn and her father shared a special time with their first look. We created some beautiful bridal portraits, even while battling the March wind. Both the bride and groom had special moments with the flower girl and their wedding parties.

The Wedding and Reception

The wedding took place on the lawn of Burlington Weddings and Events. It was a beautiful, meaningful ceremony for the couple. Directly after, we took time to capture family and couple portraits. One very important portrait that Katlyn asked us to capture was with the classic car. Hayden had a very special photo of his grandparents on their wedding day in a car that was almost the exact same make and model. She asked if we could recreate the photo with them. We were also able to capture the beautiful light at golden hour.

During the reception, Katlyn and Hayden shared emotional dances with their mother and father. For their cake cutting, they used Hayden’s sword. As a VMI graduate, this was a very important touch for him. At the end of their reception, they drove away in the beautiful classic car we photographed earlier.

We're Josh & Alisha

Just two lovebirds, enjoying everyday life.

Photographers. Artists. Creatives. Parents to two. Nerds. Foodies. Lovers. Friends.

We have been friends since 2006, married since 2008, and capturing memories through photography since 2010. The years of experience in all three make us uniquely qualified to tell your budding love story. If the years have taught us anything, its that fulfilling, long-lasting marriages have a foundation of friendship, and are built with joy - and perhaps quite a few carbs! 

We strive to help you feel confident during your big day, and not awkward or stressed - so you can look back on joyful memories that tell your love story.

MORE ABOUT US

Hi! I'm Alisha!

I'm so excited you're here! 

In addition to being a lady-boss photographer, I am a wife, a mom, a teacher and a follower of Jesus. Those things are the center of everything about who I am, what I do, and how I do it. That means I believe in how important family is, whether you are just starting your own, or are celebrating all of those special milestones. Josh and I have been married for over 12 years and photographing weddings and families for over 10 of those years. Our style has evolved over time, but we love capturing images that are bright, colorful, and tell the most important story - yours!

When we are not shooting, I love going on adventures with our two beautiful girls, trying new recipes, or catching up on my favorite shows with my hubby.

MORE ABOUT US

Hi! I'm Josh!

I want to capture your day!

Having the opportunity to live in a town as beautiful as Kernersville, NC is great. Being able to be here with Alisha is even better. I've been married over twelve years to the love of my life and for most of that time we have worked closely as wedding photographers. Because of this, we have a unique outlook on the wedding experience. Having the opportunity to find the joy and love in that special day and share it with you and your family and friends is the best thing about what I do. That's why I never miss getting a photo of the groom's face when he sees his bride for the first time.

When I don't have a camera in my hands, I enjoy coffee dates and car-sushi with my bride, board games before bed, and binge watching Netflix.
