Alexis + Brandon met in high school, but it took a few years for them to really hit it off since Brandon was a senior and Alexis was a freshman at the time! After drifting apart, they ended up together during Alexis’s junior year and have been together since! They currently live in Florida, but still love their roots in West Virginia and wanted a wedding back home! We loved getting to be their West Virginia wedding photographers.
The Barn on Unity Farm was beautiful as always, and the leaves were changing just enough for the perfect fall backdrop. The day was so sweet and emotional and we are so thankful we got to know these two and their families.
I started the day photographing Alexis’s beautiful details and hanging out with the girls while Will spent time goofing off (whilte also taking gorgeous photos) with the guys! I loved photographing this invitation suite!! Her sweet mom was by her side holding back tears all day! The bridal suite at The Barn on Unity Farm is just gorgeous!! I took way too many bridal portraits… but can you blame me?? WOW! Then Alexis snuck out for a quick first look with her dad who was just the sweetest! They used this antique family car for Alexis’s entrance and it was so much fun and added a unique touch for their portraits! One of the men being honored with a photo is Brandon’s dad who passed away a few years. After hearing his name throughout the wedding day, I know his name was definitely honored and he would have been so proud of Brandon and Alexis. And they’re married!!! This bridal party was so much fun!!LOVE how this shot turned out!! These guys were the best!! We got the prettiest fall light and it finally felt like fall!! The reason why we love this venue so much… this is the owner, Mike, bringing drinks during portraits! He and his wife Delta always go above and beyond to serve their couples!The barn was decorated beautifully! Then we headed outside for their first dance as the sun was setting! This kid KILLED it on the dance floor! I showed him this photo on the back of my camera and said “you’re a rockstar!” and he replied, “Wow, yeah I am a rockstar!” haha I loved his energy! Alexis and her little brother shared a dance, too, which left everyone in tears… again!! Then we snuck out for some sunset portraits… my fave!! Congratulations, Brandon + Alexis!! We love y’all and wish you the best!!
