It didn’t take me long to realize as a wedding photographer that no two weddings are alike. From large multiple-day affairs to small intimate weddings, I love it all! It’s super important as a couple to decide what type of wedding best suits your desires and personalities. Connie and RK had originally planned for a large wedding in August, but after thinking it over they decided they wanted to have a small, intimate wedding instead and then take an incredible honeymoon (they’re honeymooning in Hawaii in August and I could not be more jealous!!).
Surrounded by their closest family and friends, Connie and RK married at the beautiful Smith Mountain Manor in Huddleston, VA. If you’re not familiar with the venue, Smith Mountain Manor is a glamorous special events venue located in the prettiest lake-town of Virginia. It makes the perfect backdrop for weddings, elopements, and other special events! Before the ceremony began, Connie and RK met with their officiant, Mike Smith, and joined hands while Mike shared a blessing. The ceremony started shortly after and Connie was escorted down the aisle by her mother.
During the reception, they each danced with their mothers and emotions filled the room. The entire wedding day you could not only tell how much Connie and RK loved each other, but how much they loved their families as well.
In the evening, we took a group picture in front of the stunning view of the Blue Ridge Mountains (I don’t know if I’ll ever get sick of seeing those mountains!) and the beautiful manor. It was the perfect ending to a beautiful day.
Connie and RK, thank you again for trusting me to capture one of the happiest moments of your lives!!
As always, a special shout out to these vendors who helped make the day perfect:

If you are looking for a photographer that has a great personality, experienced with attention to detail, and is fun to work with, then Lyn is your person! She arrived on time and immediately began to work. She was great at directing everyone on how to pose and had great patience dealing with my chaotic family! She took numerous photos and she was able to send me sneak peaks in less than 24 hours!"
"We loved the photos and we're glad we chose Lyn as our photographer!

When planning a wedding it is so scary to hire vendors and have all the trust in them that they will do a good job and from the second I met Lyn Waldrop I knew she would have my best interest in mind!"
"Lyn also did an amazing job at capturing our real emotions which I am so grateful for!

She was great at communicating so I wasn’t stressed about how I should dress, and when and where to go. I’m not very comfortable in front of a camera but I’d do another shoot with her any day! She had tons of poses and a plan of what we were doing so I was at ease knowing these pictures would look beautiful."
“Lyn was SO energetic and made the experience so much more fun
