Whitney and Daniel

Whitney and Daniel were wed at St. John’s Episcopal on Brambleton on a chilly mid-January evening. We showed up early (as usual) to get the bride getting ready and some images of the bridal party before we were in the dark! Family and friends were awesome, helping Whitney and Daniel every step of the way.

Kinga helped Whitney with her makeup…

The men came out in the cold to play for a minute as well, Daniel has a great group of guys behind him here

Once we headed inside it was time to round up the rings and get going

The reception was held at The Woodland Place in Vinton, one of our favorite venues. The first dance is such a magical time in the evening

Paparazzi were all around! (Alisson actually got some pretty awesome shots with her iPhone!)

We had such a great time with everyone, we hope to work with this family a lot more in the future.

Whitney was kind enough to share her thoughts on the experience as well…

I would recommend Michael Sink Photography to anyone! I spent weeks researching who we were going to use to photograph our wedding. We knew that this was something that was very important to us, that we had to find the right person for. Right when I saw Michael’s website with all of his pictures on it, I knew I would be contacting him. I emailed Michael and had a response the next day. My husband and I went and met him for coffee and to see some of his work. Everything was great. Needless to say, we booked him! We signed the contract and a couple of months later, changed the date, time, and place on him! We were worried this would present a problem, but Michael worked with us and was willing to do whatever we needed him to. We met for an engagement session and found him very easy to work with. We just had a good time and it was nice to be able to warm up to him before the big day. Our pictures turned out exactly the way we imagined! A week or so before the wedding, we met up with him and Angel (who is GREAT!) just to discuss how the day would go, etc. Wedding day, they were there right when we had planned. They made sure they were not in the way and were very respectful to our family and friends. They truly went above and beyond. Pictures turned out awesome and we got them FAST!! Michael Sink will definitely be our photographer for many other milestones in our life.

Jennifer & Michael’s Wedding…

Jennifer & Michael asked us to photography their wedding in Fairfield, VA at a church that her Grandmother had attended for many, many years. We arrived at the church on Friday so that we could be there for the rehearsal and see how everything would happen the next day, the GPS got us there with no worries, but I’m glad I didn’t blink or sneeze, otherwise I may have missed the whole town! This beautiful little church is nestled in between some mountaintops and farmland in the town, and contains some absolutely beautiful woodwork inside!

Enough of my rambling and on to the images!

(note, due to the load times, and the average viewers monitor settings, I’m going back to smaller images…)

Jennifer’s Dress was simply amazing!

Janece and Greg’s Wedding

Janece and Greg invited us to share the day with them as they recited their vows at the First Presbyterian church on Jefferson in Roanoke. You may remember seeing Janece’s bridals a while back…

Tyler escorted the mothers in and out of the chapel…


Greg’s first look at his bride, you can see the adoration…
The kiss!!…
Happy newlyweds stride out of the chapel. I always think it’s cool to see the strut that every groom has as he leaves the altar, it’s kinda cool, I wonder who all notices that?
A few details from the day…

And the couple’s session during the reception…

A great couple to work with and a beautiful church adds up to some great images to share with you from an early wedding on Saturday.
