I have know this gorgeous girl since I was 7 years old - and she is just as beautiful inside as she is outside. Alexis married the man of her dreams, the boy she's loved since childhood, and it was so incredibly special to photograph.
Alexis + Thomas had an amazing winter wedding at The Mill at Fine Creek with all of their family and friends!! The weather was perfect. Even though it was the middle of February it was 70 degrees and sunny.
Alexis wore a gorgeous champagne wedding gown which perfectly complimented the blush bridesmaid dresses and gorgeous bouquets. The grooms and his men all looked incredibly dapper in their tuxes.
Alexis + Thomas's brother-in-law, Landon, officiated the ceremony and shared stories of how the two of them met and eventually fell in love. Having someone so close to them officiate added a personal touch that was so heartfelt. There were so many smiles and happy tears as everyone watched them say their "I Do's" and start this next chapter of their lives together.
These two are both incredibly photogenic, so I had a blast during their wedding portraits. And the property surrounding The Mill at Fine Creek is incredibly gorgeous surrounded by grassy hills, willow trees, and of course the creek.
Since Alexis + Thomas have known each other since childhood, they have so many mutual friends which made for a super fun reception. The dancing, the toasts, and even a few "grab the mic" karaoke moments made for a very memorable night. Alexis + Thomas had the biggest smiles on their faces the entire time.
The night ended with a bubble send-off before they jumped into the limo to take off on their honeymoon! Congratulations to the new Mr. + Mrs. Daddio!

Life Update! It has been an amazing 9 years of photographing portraits of all kinds in RVA! It was an amazing chapter in our lives, and we are ready to move on to the next. We will be shifting our business to solely focus on our commercial and editorial photography work, and unfortunately that means we will no longer be accepting bookings for our other photography services. Thank you for being on this journey with us and trusting us to document so many meaningful moments.
