Jonathan first set eyes on Samantha at a car wash, and love soon followed.

I met with the couple over coffee, and a couple of weeks later their wedding day had arrived.

It was nice to hear Jonathan tell me that they had decided to hire me because I’m a veteran. Much appreciated, sir, and thank you for your service.

Lake Manor Bed and Breakfast in Morgantown, W.Va., — an “intimate, yet elegant” establishment — is where the day got underway. I photographed the guys in a formal outdoors fashion, and then captured a few pictures of Samantha and the girls as they were finishing getting ready. The living room proved perfect for pre-ceremony family and formal group shots.

Samantha and Jonathan exchanged vows during an intimate Baptist ceremony.

I set up my Profoto lights for formals and romantics, and then we all headed to the reception.
