Modern & exceptional wedding photography.

I’ve been waiting to share these Great Marsh Estate elopement images for a long time in hope I’d be able to get them published. Unfortunately, attendees’ workshop images are difficult to get published in the wedding world due to multiple copies circulating. Subsequently I was deterred from continuing to submit. I honestly couldn’t wait any longer and have to share them here with you today!

I had never heard of Nicole Colwell before this workshop, but her images are stunning. Nicole has a way of capturing editorial content that is not only evoking, but striking. We spent three days and two nights at Great Marsh Estate in Bealeton capturing her gorgeous setups. Furthermore, Nicole planned all shoots with the amazing design work of Adriana Marie Events.

I attended this workshop with a new friend, Angel, of Feather & Fawn Photography. Angel is a sweetheart and made this experience so much more enjoyable. For instance, we were shooting buddies for each other and partners during time-constrained shootouts. Also it was great to have company on lunch breaks midday. Angel and I have similar shooting styles and I feel we are at the same growth point in our businesses. As a result, I found a fast friend in her and feel absolutely confident referring her work knowing she’ll take great care of her clients!

To conclude, I hope you enjoy the images I captured during my time at Nicole’s Workshop. Thanks for stopping by and feel free to browse more of my editorial photography work here!
