I am Jessica Simpson, a Northern Virginia and Shenandoah Valley wedding and portrait photographer. Weddings are filled with many emotions and beautiful details. The entire wedding day is a story I love to tell through my camera.
On May 7, 2016 Ben and Jessica were married at Faithbrooke Barn and Vineyard. Faithbrooke is a new venue in Luray, VA. It is easy to love this place. It's tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains overlooking the Massanutten Mountains. It rained the entire week before the wedding and there was a chance of rain on their day. Thankfully there were just a few sprinkles during dinner. Jessica got ready in a gorgeous log cabin with her bridesmaids and mother. We arrived at Faithbrooke just before the ceremony. The sun shined, and there was so much love surrounding their wedding day. Carper's Florist based out of Front Royal, VA put together some of my favorite floral arrangements. Ben and Jessica's wedding was one of my favorites. They are one of the nicest couples and documenting their wedding day for them was an honor.
The love and emotion surrounding a wedding day is one of my favorite things. So many beautiful moments are naturally unfolding and I truly appreciate being the one to document it. In the Bride and Groom portraits, I am able to capture the first moments alone as husband and wife, these are some of the most beautiful and intimate moments. Couples cherish these photos and I truly enjoy documenting this time for them. I also really love the details. The details are one of the things that bring a wedding day together. The Bride has spent months sorting out details and planning everything from the colors to what the flavor of cake they'll have. Capturing all of the details that a Bride has spent months putting together and seeing their day finally come is so fulfilling.
