Garrett & Patricia

It's rare to come across folks who're deeply in love with one another, cherishing every fine detail of the other's personality. Whenever we heard Garrett speak, Patti's eyes instantly drew to him and it was difficult to find a single moment through the whole process that Garrett didn't have his eyes steady locked on her. This day began along the streets of old town Warrenton, Virginia. Patricia began her day in the Salon Emage and Garrett began his in the Fauquier County, Old Hotel which has a rich history with some of our nations strongest leaders. The day finally came to a close at Molon Lave Vineyards, where the ceremony & reception were hosted. They allowed us to play a hands on role...

Fiesta at Sneads Farm

We attended this unbelievably beautiful styled shoot as filmmakers, to capture the beauty that Darling D's and so many others worked so hard to prepare. The following photographs were taken in between filming the video. The Aerials This styled shoot was a major team effort by everyone who was involved. From Darling D's to Jean from the Floral Pallet and so many more contributed their time & resources without any form of compensation, and we're honored to have worked alongside so many outstanding professionals. The majority of our events involve multiple filmmakers, capturing elements from a number of angles while animating the camera's movement, however for this styled shoot we were only able to...

Colin & Hayley

The Wedding Day This story begins along the boardlands of Virginia & Tennessee at an unbelievably striking venue known as The Lodge at Crooked River, nestled along the flowing banks of the Holston River. In all of our years of witnessing these stories of love, we've never come across a venue that's taken our breaths quite as deeply as this estate. However deeply we are moved be the beauty of this property, that power pales in comparison to that of Colin & Hayley's love for one another, and for God. A bold recurring theme in this wedding is their desire to honor God and their families. The Formals After spending a good portion of the morning preparing their hearts and their bodies for the life-changing events...

WarrentonDay 2016

Warrenton Town Limits We had such an immeasurable blast being apart of Warrenton's Independence Day celebrations yesterday evening! It was almost as if the whole town came together to enjoy the day as a true community; serving some of the best joys and food we've ever experienced. Our day began as the last helicopter landed for the aircraft display, and from there we quickly moved forward. To be honest, there was almost too much going on for us to photograph and these are just a few moments from throughout the day. It's been a crazy busy weekend; as we've spent a large amount of time laboring away on this super magnificent film from the Warrenton Town Limit's celebration! ...

Another super delightful facet from Judith's life is her love for dogs,...

Matt & Maria

Our journey with Matt & Maria began back in December of last year, when we met in downtown Culpeper for their winter engagement session. It was then that we really began to build that connection between the Anchor Team and the lives that they had built together. We spoke about events that brought them together, their families, we explored all of the nooks & crevasses of downtown and even finished the day off at Beer Hound Brewery to bring together the preliminary schedule of the following wedding day. Getting Ready The day began at Maria's family home in Gainesville Virginia, where the whole wedding party prepared themselves for the day that lay ahead. The men were in the basement and the ladies were...

Will & Joy

Photography does not exist without light. The very definition of a photographer is "an artist who paints with light", which is why as the sun sets and the evening light dissipates so does the possibility to take photographs, that is unless you're very knowledgeable with the characteristics of fleeting light and the details of your equipment. It's not every day that a bride plans out a winter wedding held outdoors, in the night underneath Christmas lights. Needless to say, this sort of lighting situation is very complex. We worked hands on with the lighting design to make sure it was up to par, installing two dim floodlights (from Lows) in just the right area and ensuring that the proper type of...
