Classic, genuine, and intimate is how Dani of Dani White Photography sees her ideal wedding couple. And it would make sense because this photog was first a fine art painter before she became a photographer! With a keen eye for seeing light and the way it bends and moves around her brides and grooms, Dani lives for that portrait moment.

Having Your First Holiday Together as Newlyweds

Monday, November 30, 2015

The first year of marriage is full of ups and downs; there really is no other year like it for a married couple. Finances are tight, schedules are tweaked, household chores are fluid, and you're just trying to find the everyday groove with your spouse. So when the holidays come around, it is even more important to celebrate that year and for the future ahead. Hosting your first holiday or Christmas together shouldn't be a time of frustration or unrealistic nesting perfection. And even though you two might have a small budget, it doesn't mean you can't have a beautiful winter season together! In partnership with Pottery Barn, we are showing that no matter what holiday you celebrate as newlyweds, there are lovely ways to celebrate in cozy, stylish, and affordable merriment that will set the foundation for holidays to come.

Joy-Filled Virginia Beach Oceanfront Wedding

One sun-soaked afternoon in September, Karina and Jose said their vows with the sand between their toes at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. With vibrant purple flowers, an aisle runner with Ephesians 5:31 inscribed, dapper grey suits, and a load of gorgeous smiles from all in attendance, this beach wedding was perfectly paired with the laid back vibe that tends to go with having a sand and surf kind of ceremony... and thankfully, we get to relive Karina and Jose's joy-filled moments through Andi and Zoe Photography's captures!

Chic Historic Williamsburg Anniversary

Kempton and Alana were married under the stars of the Arabian skies last year in Abu Dhabi.

During a quick break home to visit family here in Virginia, they reunited with their wedding photographer Lindsay Collette for a special anniversary session in Williamsburg-- an area close to the couple's heart... as the Williamsburg Inn was where Alana and Kempton announced their engagement years before.
