Summer wedding at the Stable at Bluemont Vineyard | S+J

I had been hoping for years that I was going to get this summer wedding at the Stable at Bluemont Vineyard for S+J’s wedding. Because I was lucky enough to be S’s high school English and journalism teacher, I had the privilege of watching her relationship with J grow for many years. I am not even lying that I was hoping and praying that she’d ask me to document her day. I loved many aspects of their wedding day. The rain held off, their color scheme made the entire day bright, and their HUGE wedding party (the largest I have ever photographed) listened well and added so much joy to their day. Decor was simple and thoughtful, and joy spread through their families, too! (S was the second student’s wedding I got to photograph… they are seriously the most special of all the weddings I photograph!)

Because S+J came out on a bus with their wedding party and they were running a tad late, we had a short amount of time for getting ready photos. They each had TWO GORGEOUS dresses. Their flowers are probably the prettiest I have ever photographed. I loved that S+J were into getting multiple portraits because of their two dresses! They changed their timeline once before the wedding adding an hour, and on the night of, they wanted more reception photos and added thirty more minutes. So just know I’ve done that a few times if my schedule can accommodate.

So many people were happy to celebrate S+J’s love at this summer wedding at the Stable at Bluemont Vineyard. And see S with me and another English teacher from her high school days in the last photo!

WEDDING & PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY FOR PEOPLE WHO want their story told

Hi. I’m Teresa. While photography is a part-time job for me, documenting your stories doesn’t ever get treated like it’s not important. My full-time gig is teaching high school English, journalism, and photography at an all-boys’ school in Washington, DC. Journalism is my favorite subject to teach because it is as much about writing as it is about the art of observing the world, and I became a photographer because of my experiences in photojournalism.

You’ll see in galleries with my families, children, newborns, or weddings, my style definitely is more about documenting connection and trying to create real moments. I love a good portrait, but my heart is happiest when I get real smiles from people loving on and playing with each other.
