Upper Shirley Vineyard Wedding, Richmond,Virginia
As a Virginia wedding photographer with lots of venue options, I have wanted to shoot a wedding at a vineyard. There are SO many gorgeous venues that have vineyards, but for some reason, I haven’t had any of my brides getting married at one. So, when I saw that Shelby White Events and Who’s That Girl Photos were hosting a styled shoot at Upper Shirley Vineyard it was a given that I would attend. Shelby & Ashley did an amazing job from styling details, all the way to the models. It seriously could not have been a prettier styled wedding shoot.
Logan and Emily, a newly wed couple, modeled for the shoot. I love when real couples are used for styled shoots because it gives an authenticity to it that is hard to fake with models who aren’t an actual couple. Emily’s dress was absolutely stunning and she was so beautiful and had an amazing, serenity about her that just radiated. Logan and Emily are so perfect for one another– because they are so good together, it made my job as a wedding photographer super easy. They effortlessly flirt with and love on each other. It was so much fun to get to document a little part of their personalities.
The Upper Shirley Vineyard was the perfect back-drop for this shoot. It’s classic, clean, neutral, and checked off all of my photo requirements for a perfect wedding venue (it will be added to my preferred vendors list to recommend to brides because holy wow is it stunning).
- The bridal suite was a photographer’s dream.
- The lighting was beautiful.
- There was lots of space.
- The decor was tasteful and neutral, and the walls were white.
It was like walking into a room that was designed for good photos to be taken! Renee Jean| Virginia Wedding Photographer and this vendor team were amazing and I’m so glad I got to work with each one of them!
