Missy & Pancho ~ Afton Mountain Vineyards ~ Virginia Wedding

Sarah of Sarah Der Photography is a lovely young woman who came into my life a little while ago, and someone I instantly recognized as a kindred spirit. Not only is she wonderfully talented and a source of inspiration, she’s also funny, a foodie, open-hearted, and extremely generous.

She’s the reason I was able to be a part of Missy & Pancho’s incredibly special wedding last summer. Knowing that I wanted (desperately) to photograph something (anything) with mountains in the background, and to photograph a wedding primarily using film, she invited me to tag along as her second shooter to a beautiful wedding with the Blue Ridge mountains in the background, and to use as much film as my heart desired (love you, Sarah!) ¬†You have to adore friends that help you live out a dream!


These are a mix of film & digital images from the wedding I photographed with her at the Afton Mountain Vineyards in Virginia.
