Price + Weaver Wedding

Barb Price had been a pal of mine for a few years, but even so, I was enormously flattered when when she came to me a while back to tell me not only her tale of meeting the perfect guy, Jason Weaver, but also that she had her eye on me for shooting the eventual wedding. Barb’s a ridiculously cool gal with a bit of an artistic bent, so to say the least this was enormously flattering. We set to work on setting up an engagement shoot and gearing up for the big day. That day, was this past Saturday – September 25, 2010 – and what an incredible day it was.

For starters, the weather was pretty much flawless. I say “pretty much” because the whole point of a September 25 wedding was to have a slightly cooler fall day to do things with, but at a toasty ninety-three degrees, things didn’t exactly work out that way. Still though… slight complaint, and everything else went off without a hitch for the outdoor ceremony at Winterham Plantation in Amelia, VA. From the flowers to the location, to the wedding favors, everything was meticulously planned and gorgeous, and even still, the whole day had an air of a laid back, stress-free day in the country – an attitude mirrored in every person I ran across. Great times.

Oh, and Barb’s niece/flowergirl Savannah was pretty awesome too. Had to be said.

All this exposition to say: the shots came out great and an amazing time was had. To punctuate the day, at mid-sundown, cloud steaks appeared overhead. This was mid-reception and Jason had run off to change out of the monkey suit, but Barb was still there all gowned up. I grabbed her snapped a pretty ridiculous shot of her with that sky overhead – a shot that required very little editing in the end.

Speaking of that shot, check it out along with plenty of other favorite shots from the big day below, along with one of my favorites from their engagement shoot. There’s also a Trash-the-Dress shoot yet to be done too, so… more to come I’m sure. Stay tuned, and in the meantime, hope you dig these.


  1. WOW! J and i just checked out the blog… even though love would be a descriptive word that could be used, i think enamored and astonished are better fitting. Looking at the pictures was like reliving our special day… We were Honored to have you as our photographer, and more than that our friend!
    love,
    Barb and Jason Weaver
