Get ready for a stunner, because this wedding is pretty awesome!! Introducing Brooke & Steve, the sweetest darn college sweethearts you’ve ever met! These two have been living in VA ever since graduating from college and are in the process of building an incredible new home to raise their fur-baby, Josie, and all the beautiful babies to come!! I think we’ve spent more time with Brooke and Steve than any of our other A&J couples, so they have a seriously soft spot in our hearts!

We spent an hour or so over Skype a long time ago, then shot a mini engagement session for them in the rain with Josie, then had them over to hang out before their sunny engagement session a couple months later and then spent 2 hours with Brooke for her bridal session! So by the time the wedding rolled around, they felt like some of our best friends and the 10 hours we spent with them on the wedding day was over in a flash of a moment and we were already missing them the second they drove away! … and I’m pretty sure if they lived in SC we would call them every day to hang out! Hope that’s not overkill! We just love them!

Brooke and Steve’s genuineness, laughter and positive energy are all so incredibly contagious! They’re just some of the best people on the planet and the fact that they chose us to photograph their wedding made us some of the luckiest people on the planet, considering we get to spend more time with the bride and groom than anyone else on their wedding day! … and I can tell you that their wedding day was perfect, from beginning to end!

We were also blown away by all of the personal details that Brooke made and ordered for the wedding and the way she and Chelyse from Intrigue Design & Events transformed The Mills House downtown into a space that any bride would die over! … and can we take a moment to just stare at these flowers! Tiger Lily Florist, you are AMAZING and you completely outdid yourself for Brooke + Steve’s wedding! Wow! So, without further adieu…
