Amanda + Justin | Wedding | Afton, VA

Amanda + Justin, whose Engagement Session you might remember, had an absolutely spectacular wedding at Veritas Vineyard & Winery in Afton, Virginia. Not even a little rain could prevent this from being an amazing and beautiful party! Besides their lovely family + friends, lots of folks contributed: dress from Amanda’s Touch; paper goods by Rock Paper Scissors; hair + makeup by The Studio with Amanda’s makeup by her lovely sister, Ginny; video by Justin from Toast; flowers from Blue Ridge; donuts from Carpe Donut; and wonderful coordination, food, and service from Jill and the fine folks at Veritas. A special shout from TALL goes to Matt Sickels who was an absolutely versatile musician playing for the ceremony (with Ginny singing), the cocktail hour, and shredding with the awesome band Six Stylez. It was an absolute treat to be a part of this day. Family + friends can view the rest in the Client Gallery! Congrats, A+J!

I would love to know your method for the rain photo presented above. Stunning.

I have a rainy wedding tomorrow and would love to try this with my couple.

Many thanks,


Thanks! Just some creative gel-ing with a backlit strobe. It wasn’t raining terribly hard but a wide spread of light will make it appear so!
