When Bella Giornata Events contacts me about a shoot, I KNOW it's going to be a dream come true. Christina is like my spirit animal...it's always a treat to work with my best friend, but she's also the most talented and creative event planner I know. Presqu'Isle is not only a STUNNING wedding venue tucked away on the outskirts of Culpeper, but it's also home to Josh, Aaron and their two adorable pups-Gracie + My Favorite-George the Pug. So naturally I knew this bridal shoot with Allie Cespiva was going to be pretty amazing! Blushing Blooms provided the gorgeous florals, Allie did her hair + makeup (she works for Bangz Salon!) and my favorite bridal store provided the perfect gown as always-Thank you Ava Laurenne Bride!! I love how this shoot shows that bridal shoots don't have to be static, cookie cutter portraits, you can really embrace your style, enjoy your dress even more and feel stunning even before your wedding day! Here are a few highlights from our shoot, enjoy!
