The Harrison's wedding event brought me out to middle VA, a refreshing venue quite unique and different than the ballrooms of DC that I'm used too. Driving out to Clifton Forge was an escape and breath of fresh air, quite literally. The Farm at Glen Haven is a venue nestled among the Virginian rolling hills. The fall season in full swing made the views that much more spectacular so you know I had to pop the drone up to capture it from the sky.
Most of this wedding was planned by Joe Harrison, Father of the Groom, Bailey. Being in the creative industry, particularly photo and video based out of Cincinnati Ohio, Joe knew and appreciated all things camera related. We connected on the phone, he and I, over my time spent at University in Ohio and our backgrounds. What started as a natural, comfortable conversation turned into a friendship where we were working together all the way up through to the wedding to make sure I understood their needs.
Both Bailey and Madison loved my approach to weddings, capturing the details and crafting a story, their story in a way unlike anyone else. It was important to me to hear what they wanted, take their concerns and requests appropriately. One think they mentioned was their desire to have a bit of a more upbeat vibe, they love to have fun and are always laughing and goofing around and while many of my films are slower and paced out, I felt like it was a great challenge to blend my story telling approach with a faster paced song choice. This blend is what you see here. A story of two people in love, both running after Christ as individuals to mirror Him and be a reflection of His glory and goodness. This idea was woven throughout the entire day, seen through both of their families, and their friends.
