Southern Summer Lovin Styled Shoot | Featured in Glamour & Grace | VA Wedding Photographer


I teamed up with Adrienne of Heart’s Content Events and Design and many other amazing local vendors for this Southern Summer Lovin’ Styled Shoot that just got featured on Glamour and Grace so now we can share it!!  It took place at Fairview Farm a gorgeous rustic chic barn with a real life couple, Allie and David who were the perfect models, and Allie, you are gorgeous and we all all jealous of your perfectly flawless skin! Fairview just celebrated their 1 year anniversary and in honor of their anniversary and this shoot being featured, they just put out a HUGE contest, one lucky couple winning the grand prize of a midweek Wedding at the venue, a $9,000 value!

 Since our styled shoot was such a success, Debbie of Fairview invited us vendors to become part of the contest and help one couples’ dreams come true and I was truly honored, of course saying YES!  The contest just ended and the winner, Chelesa Mullins was announced and I am so thrilled to be part of their big day, they tour the farm next week and I am so happy for them! Can’t wait to meet them and work with all of these super talented vendors again.  Until then, enjoy some photos that were taken at the farm, bringing a little summer back now that fall is in full swing ;)

A Rustic Mountainside Wedding at Bell’s Cove | North Carolina Wedding Photographer

 Ryan and I met in Photography School at the Hallmark Institute of Photography back in 2006, he was very young, had dreads, and a huge southern accent.  It wasn’t before long that our groups of friends started to hang out and now, 9 years later I can say he is my very dear friend.  We  were roommates at one point when I lived in Asheville for a year a while back and it was quite a treat getting to hang out all the time, being witness to his antics, which always kept me laughing.  A lot has happened in the past 9 years, successes, failures, heartbreaks … life … growing up … I will never forget the day when Ryan called me and told me he was going to be a Dad.  It has been amazing watching Ryan grow into such an amazing man, father, and now a husband.  I was so honored when he asked me to Photograph his Wedding at Bells Cove in Asheville, NC.  I had only met Shelly a few times prior, but I knew they were PERFECT for each other right away.  Their Wedding Day complimented their laid back, fun loving, ‘we just want everyone to have a good time’ personalities and I was blown away by all their friends and family that poured love into every last detail and helped make this their dream come true.  And it really was a dream, from the Blue Ridge Mountains, to the wild flowers, to the handmade carrot cake, to the BBQ dinner, down to the playlist that Ryan had made himself that had everyone dancing the entire night.

 Ryan and Shelly, I do hope that I have done your Day justice through these images and that others can see the love radiating from each of you!

Hyatt Boston Harbor Wedding | Desjar Photography | Boston MA Wedding Photographer

I LOVE Boston and so do Becky and Jeff, so of course their location for their Wedding would be surrounded by the city’s skyline at The Boston Harbor Hyatt, right on the waterfront. Everything was so beautiful, the red florals just popped, the perfect contrast against Becky’s gorgeous ivory lace gown and her bridesmaids’ mediterranean blue dresses.  I have never seen anyone with more perfect, flawless skin as Becky, and those eyes, I can’t get over them!!

I first met Becky and Jeff one SUPER early morning which seems forever ago for their engagement sunrise session at Marshfield beach in MA. (You can view that post HERE!) We never did get to see the sunset because it was overcast, but I loved that we had a blast anyway, Jeff and Becky are such a fun, laid back, super sweet couple.  On their big day, I got to meet are their friends and family who also, are equally as fun! It was a night filled with dancing, good beer and food, corn hole, laughter, the city lights, and love.  Is there anything better?!

I hope you enjoy the photos! HyattBostonHarbor2HyattBostonHarbor-5

How cute is this sign?! AND, not to mention that the flowers are gorgeous!
