With Meshayla’s groom, Cherod currently serving in South Korea, we wanted to give her Richmond, Va., bridal session a military twist. We chose the Virginia War Memorial, a beautiful, solemn, peaceful location overlooking the James River and downtown Richmond. Here, we were aiming for a more pensive, elegant vibe and we took advantage of beautiful light hitting the west side of the memorial. Our second location was Tredegar Iron Works, which provided us with color, texture and great metal and brick surfaces to play with. Meshayla, wearing Vera Wang, provided her fun, playful spirit as well as a few details that were the perfect touch for our session. Many thanks also to Nica Lewis from Once in a Lifetime Events for her styling expertise. Following are our favorites from the shoot. Enjoy!
