The first time I ever set foot on the property of Cloverlea, I was blown away by the grounds, the house, and the incredible view of the mountains. I was second shooting and hadn’t yet started my own journey with my business. The wedding was for a woman named Trish. Her and her husband tied the knot in front of a gorgeous reflecting pool. Little did I know that a number of years later I would be organizing and executing an amazing styled shoot with that same woman on that same property!
Trish approached me a while ago to discuss some ideas she had for photography packages for Cloverlea (she works for the University of Lynchburg ,who owns the property, and helps run their observatory programs). We had plans to meet up and kind of do a walk through of the property so I could photograph the grounds and do some promotional photos for one of their upcoming observatory events. On the Monday of that week, Trish calls me and pitches the idea of pulling together a shoot since the weather looked like it was going to be amazing. I was totally in! We started planning immediately and by Saturday, we had managed to execute what I believe to be a pretty exquisite looking editorial shoot!
We could not have pulled this all together without the time, talent, and willingness of the vendors involved to hop on our crazy train haha! You guys are amazing <3
