HANNAH & THOMAS || An Elegant Fall Wedding at Historic Seven Springs Farm & Manor – Richmond Virginia Photographer


Selfless love.

Meet Hannah & Thomas.
A couple who’s intentionality, tender love, and thoughtfulness for each other & those most dear encompasses all that they say and do. Truly. Walking alongside these two throughout their engagement & ever unfolding love story was both humbling & inspiring.

They are the real deal.

And their wedding celebration
at the gorgeous Seven Springs Farm in Richomond, Virginia,
was nothing short of elegant.

Listen while you scroll!!

Emotions flood in.
This day, these moments, they’re real.
And the beauty of this love can’t help but overwhelm.

The sounds of summer waning and fall beginning pervaded the air.
Those most dear gathered & offered smiles and easy laughs.
The perfect day.

And just like that, you became a family.
Mr & Mrs looks good on you two.
Now dig up the bourbon!

Forever yours. Truly.
A truth so calming, so surreal, that only whispers heard
and heartbeats felt
can convey the depth of this new thing.

Because it’s just…Together.

Pour the wine!
Let the music play & share a meal together – family style.
Get up & dance and share stories in between.
^ repeat until you can’t any longer.
It’s what receptions are made of!

Dearest Hannah & Thomas,

You. Are. Amazing. Lord knows we counted down the days for your special day because we were just THAT excited for you both!! Your kindness for each other AND for us blew us away time and time again. Thank you. Thank you for trusting us with your love story, your quiet moments, and your wedding day celebration. Working with you was truly a highlight of our year and we couldn’t be more THRILLED that you’re officially official. You two love so well – it’s inspiring. Congratulations!!! And hey, let’s continue these rad memories, yeah?! 

–Tara (and Stephen)
