Should You Request An Unplugged Wedding?

Hello friends! You have probably heard this word floating around on the Pinterest boards you have been staring at for hours, or heard it somewhere on Facebook, but are not too sure what an unplugged wedding really is.

An unplugged wedding is where you ask friends or family to place their phones in a basket, or a designated place during the wedding ceremony, or in most cases the entire wedding. The idea is for all wedding guests to be present, instead of looking at their phone screens.

So how do you determine what’s right for you?

Cana Virginia Senior Session

When Brady first mentioned he wanted me to his senior session I was delighted. When he mentioned he had 8 horses, I have to admit I turned back into a little kid. Everything within me was jumping up, and down that I would get to be near horses again, and we had quite an adventure on this shoot.

We met at this house, and drove down to his grandfather’s property which has an amazing view of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance. We started our shoot at this beautiful oak tree with ivy running, and twisting up the sides.

I love when the sun starts getting low, because it creates this nice silhouette.

Getting to this beautiful river was quite an adventure. We took Brady’s ranger, and drove down some steep roads, went past his deer hunting stand, across a beautiful open field, and finally ended up at the river. These shots look effortless, but don’t be fooled. Those river rocks were super sharp, and I may have almost face planted a couple times, but it was the best!

This beautiful horses name is Shadow. Brady has been riding horses since he was 3 years old, so he knows a thing or two. He even got Shadow to pose for me with the help of his dad.

Senior Style Guide: What To Wear To Your Session

The most frequent question that I get asked before I do any shoot is, “What should I wear?” So I thought I would create a post around some of my favorite outfits that my senior girl’s have worn.
