It was cold & windy autumn day atop Chestnut Hill in the downtown of Orange Virginia, where Stephen & Monica expressed their unwavering love for one another in the form of their wedding day. I had arrived nearly an hour before any of the festivities were to begin, photographing the exterior as well as the homy interior of this magnificent venue known as the Inn At Chestnut Hill.

As was unique to their wedding, the rehearsal was held moments before they were to dress themselves for the wedding day, thus the earlier photographs of Monica in her hair curlers comes into hand. These are two of the sweetest living souls that Anchor Images has had the pleasure of working with, and it’s those who are like Stephen & Monica that make us feel most honored to serve as their wedding photographers.

• Cinematic Update •

We have a special little update (Jan. 29th) from Steven & Monica. As we photographed the day, it turns out we were able to experiment with taking short video clips in between the photographs. In short, we have this beautiful wedding day film. We’ve cultivated our love for cinematography over the years, and although this film is shorter than what we’ll soon offer, it’s masterfully edited and carries the beautiful story of Steven & Monica’s wedding day to even further detailed depths.
