nashville urban industrial wedding heirloom box of prints by charlottesville wedding photographer, amy nicole photography_0031

I’m pretty sure Maggie & Zach’s heirloom box may be one of my favorites to date! It’s simple, classic and pure elegance. They chose a cream fabric with lovely gold foil, and I think it’s incredibly timeless. Plus, it’s so very fitting for the feel of their day. (In case you missed it, you can see their Nashville wedding at Cannery ONE here.)

If you’re new around here, you may not know that all collections include heirlooms with the Heirloom Box being one of the most popular! A few weeks before the wedding, I send along your options for your Heirloom Box and I place the order so it’s ready soon after your wedding, as they are hand-crafted in Virginia. Once your online gallery is delivered, you get to pick your favorite 100 photos, I order those prints, package them up and send them to their new home…yours!

raleigh lifestyle newborn session by charlottesville newborn and family photographer, amy nicole photography_0008

Matt and Amber moved from DC to Raleigh earlier last year, celebrated their first anniversary in November (see more of their garden wedding here in case you missed it!) and welcomed their sweet girl, Molly, about a month later as she made her entrance right before New Year’s Eve. What a wonderful and full year!

When Matt & Amber first told me her name, I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect name for her and this sweet family. Matt & Amber are full of southern charm and hospitality, so it’s only natural to wear off on Miss Molly Marie. And with a name like that, she’s bound to have the best monogram!

I traveled down to Raleigh for their in-home session and as Matt & Amber always have, they welcomed me in with the warmest kindness you could imagine from the moment they opened the door. Miss Molly, you are in for a treat with these two as your parents! I can only imagine the warmth of the home you’ll grow up in. Matt & Amber, thank you for inviting me to document another precious season of your life, I look forward to documenting your little lady grow over the next year!

harrisonburg newborn photos by charlottesville newborn and family photographer, amy nicole photography_0025

Watching your friends marry is always a joyous occasion. Watching your friends become parents? It’s really something you can’t even explain.

Phil (Elsie’s dad) has been Jeremy’s best friend since middle school….when they were both the same height, which is quite hilarious now. Though they are the closest of friends, they are different in more ways than you can count. But, I have to say, those differences have never stopped that brotherly love. They truly are more brothers than friends, and it’s something I’m so grateful for. Phil was by Jeremy’s side as he said “I Do” to me, and Jeremy was by Phil’s side on the day he married the beautiful blonde you’re about to see, Heidi. They are a perfect team, and have both been beaming from ear to ear since the day they found out they were expecting. And now that Miss Elsie is officially here, well, the joy and smiles have only grown.

I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to not only meet Elsie the day she came home from the hospital, but also photograph her with her amazing parents in her first few days of life. It’s something that wouldn’t have been possible a year ago, as all four of us were living outside of Virginia. But now, we’ve all moved within an hour of each other and my, what a blessing it’s been.

Elsie, you have no idea how what you’ve been born into….a family that will love you fiercely and cheer you on endlessly. And not just a family that’s held together through blood…a family that’s sewn together by love. I can’t wait to watch you grow, sweet little one.

richmond winter wedding at hotel john marshall by charlottesville wedding photographer, amy nicole photography_0050

Amy and Alex both attended JMU, but didn’t end up meeting until they both happened to attend a mutual friend’s going away party. They hit it off that evening and went on their first date the following week, and well, as they say, the rest is history. Fast forward, and while on a vacation in Costa Rica, Alex led her on a hike to a beautiful waterfall tucked between mountains. He had written in a journal to her, and read it to her…and after reading the last page, he had tucked a ring in between the pages. He dropped to one knee and asked her to be his wife. Does it get any more adventurous and romantic?

I met Amy at JMU as well, as we had mutual friends throughout school. Every time I see her, she’s nothing short of happy! I’d venture to say that most of her friends agree that her smile is never-ending and something you’ll always remember about her. I officially met Alex at their engagement session at Waterperry Farm, and it was such a treat to see these two together. Alex simply adores her! You can tell these two are the type that live well, love well, and live to the fullest. Of course, their wedding day reflected that as well!

Of course, their wedding day reflected that as well! Though it was about 30 degrees, Amy gracefully endured the temperatures for all of the portraits. These two couldn’t stop smiling and simply enjoying that their day had finally come. They didn’t stress about the details. They didn’t stress about the cold. They simply enjoyed the day and loved on the people that come to celebrate them. And when the dancing started, there wasn’t a lull for the rest of the evening! Their friends and family certainly know how to have an amazing time! The entire dance floor was full the entire evening!

Congratulations, Amy & Alex! It was an honor to be a part of your beautiful day and I hope that joy will follow you wherever you two go in life together!

charlottesville family mini session in ivy by charlottesville family photographer, amy nicole photography_0001

Meet the Davis Family…. they are one of those families who make you feel as if you’ve known them for years from the moment you meet them. I met Britt through a women’s bible study in Charlottesville, and she’s one of those people that brings light to any room. With her gorgeous golden curls and radiant smile, you can’t help but want to get to know her. And her husband, Jared, is every bit as warm and welcoming. My friend Elisa officially introduced us and Britt wanted to have some portraits taken for their Christmas cards, so we made it happen!

When I showed up for their session, I was immediately welcomed by their two sweet girls who were oh-so-full of life. We had beautiful winter light, and though it was a bit chilly (hello, winter), these kids were troopers. I could have spent all afternoon with this family!

Enjoy a few favorites of mine from the session. There’s no way you won’t be smiling by the end of the post!
