Danielle & Josh | Chantilly Bible Church | Chantilly Wedding Photographer

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: every wedding day has it’s challenges as a photographer, and this day was no different!  The ceremony took place in a windowless church, with magenta stage lighting and I was not able to use flash.  The bridal party photos (with a bridal party of almost 20 people!) happened during the harshest (and hottest!) light of the day.  But I made it work!  I busted my butt to adapt to each circumstance and weird lighting situation and the results are beautiful, honest photos to tell the story of Danielle and Josh’s day. 

Their wedding day was a family affair in every way- the bridal party was mostly siblings and siblings-in-love and forever friends, the bride’s father gave a special charge to them during the ceremony, the groom’s mother made their three (3!!!) amazing cakes, and the entire day took place at the church they both grew up at.  What a special day to be witness to!

I love sharing these full wedding blog posts because you get to see the entire day- from start to finish.  You get to see Danielle’s first look and prayer with her dad, outside the church he used to pastor.  You get to see the precious moments before Danielle went down the aisle when she was surrounded in prayer by all the women that love her most.  You get to see the tacos and donuts that made their day just a little more ‘them.’ You get to see her flower girl rocking a baby doll at the reception while they listened to toasts.  You get to see their personalities shine through on the dance floor…

Enjoy my favorites from this beautiful summer wedding!
