Behind the Scenes of a Smithfield Plantation Wedding

Blacksburg VA Wedding Photographer, Amodeo Photography, has been featured as a Guest Blogger for the popular bridal registry magazine: bridebook.    In this post, you can take a quick glimpse into the real-life behind-the-scenes wedding that could have ended in disaster. Melissa and Matt were married the day after a strong derecho storm wiped out trees and caused power outages for up to ten days in some locations. They were lucky: while they did lose the shade that they had so carefully planned to wed under, their venue was spared serious damage and their caterer had power. Melissa actually began her wedding-day preparations without power, before moving over to the historic Smithfield Plantation. Ironically, while most of the rest of the town had no power at all, the centuries-old plantation's lights were burning brightly.

An Engaging Photo Session: Guest Blog Post for bridebook

In this article, I share an intimate glimpse into a real-world engagement session. Using black and white imagery to tell a story of an engaged couple's love for literature offered a somewhat visual perspective on how the groom sees the world. Every part of this Engagement shoot was carefully thought out to bring the couple's unique perspective to light.

A Dress Rehearsal: Investing in a Bridal Portrait Session with your Photographer

Here's my article about Bridal Portraiture in the premiere Wedding Planner Magazine of Roanoke and the New River Valley. I've called Blacksburg Virginia her home for over 25 years. As a hobby, I enjoy writing guest articles & submitting images for Wedding and Event magazines in the area. I adore travel and can be booked for playful weddings and whimsical events  ~ I'm always ready for an adventure and keep a bag packed for spontaneous out-of-town opportunities.
