Montfair Resort Engagement Session | Crozet, Va | Amanda + Scott

Sometimes our couples leave it up to us to choose the locations for their engagement sessions. Which is awesome for Amanda and Scott who wanted the brilliant Fall colors to highlight their session.  I took them one of our favorite wedding venues, Montfair in Crozet.  That place is gorgeous, especially this time of year.  Amanda and Scott – enjoy your e-session preview!  We can’t wait for your wedding next year!!

Garth Newel Wedding | Warm Springs, Va | Jessica + Matt

Jess and Matt! You can just feel the excitement and love between these two when looking at the photos.  What an amazing day for such an amazing couple.  This was our first wedding in Warm Springs and what a pleasure it was.  There was a picture perfect backdrop no matter where you were looking from the Inn at Gristmill Square where the girls got ready, to the lovely little Presbyterian Church, to Garth Newel Music Center where they held their reception.  It was all absolutely gorgeous.  The best part of the day by far was their first look.  Matt was about to burst with anticipation.  It was like watching a kid on Christmas morning!  We wish Matt and Jessica all the happiness life has to offer!  Thank you for including us in your day!

Happy Client Testimonials | Virginia Wedding Photographers | Ward Photography

With heartfelt sincerity, I recommend Ward Photography for any bride and groom. My husband and I, in addition to our families, are so pleased with our wedding photos – keepsakes that we’ll treasure for a lifetime. Jason and Wendy were wonderful to work with. From the portrait-style photos to the candid moments, they captured the joy of our wedding day. I was initially drawn to Ward Photography for their classic, clean style of photographs, and I was extremely pleased with the quality and number of photos we were returned. 

I also had my bridal portraits taken by Jason a few weeks before the wedding. I’d highly recommend a bridal session to any bride – it provided a time to finalize hair and makeup choices and made me feel more confident on my wedding day. Jason spent several hours taking portraits and was willing to visit two locations – a luxury not possible on the wedding day. 

For timeless wedding photographs you’ll enjoy for years to come, I highly recommend Ward Photography! 

Hannah & Andrew

Ward Photography | Post-production, editing and retouching photos

One question we are asked a lot…do you edit all of your photos?  YES!!  You might be surprised how many wedding photographers outsourse their editing to other photographers OR even to other countries.  Our post-production, editing and retouching capabilities are state of the art and completely professional. We color correct every photo, do some retouching and apply artistic treatment to select images in your gallery.  You are not plastic!!!  Our approach is clean and natural with smoothing skin, brightening eyes, enhancing skin tones and minor touch-ups – we do not over enhance.  We want your photos to look as amazing as you did on your wedding day!

Here’s an example of a photo SOOC (straight out of camera) next to the edited version.

Gaie Lea Wedding | Staunton, Va Wedding Photographers | Brent + Lindsey

Brent and Lindsey were married at the beautiful Gaie Lea estate, a historic manor in Staunton, VA. I would prefer to call it a hidden jewel surrounded by mountain views! Everything about this ceremony was gorgeous.  We couldn’t have asked for better weather or views. The ceremony was followed by a reception at The American Hotel, where attention to every detail continued.  I loved the color combo of gray and yellow! It was a pleasure to spend the day with Brent and Lindsey and we hope this is our first of many weddings at Gaie Lea!
