Learning with Virginia Wedding Photographers Michael and Carina Photography

This past year has been nothing short of absolutely amazing.

We have been so honored to have worked with some fantastic people, both clients and other wedding professionals and creatives.

We still have to pinch ourselves about being featured on some of our favorite sources of inspiration.

We recently announced our 2nd workshop (for which there are two seats remaining!), and the response has been awesome. However, we know that for some people a workshop just isn’t a possibility right now.

Now we want to give back.

The road to success is paved with hard work, it’s true, but we believe behind every successful person there are people supporting them and believing in them along the way.

At least, that is how it’s been for us – and this is one small way we can say thank you.

That’s why we’re so excited to offer T W O mentoring session scholarships with us via Skype or Google Hangout, at absolutely no cost.

For two hours, we’ll sit down with the winners and answer all questions (about film, metering, finding your niche market, interacting with clients, pricing, getting published), and we’re also open to reviewing your work or materials and offering helpful feedback where it’s needed.

Just follow the instructions below to enter and on February 16th, 2015 the winners will be selected! Please be sure to leave a comment below letting us know what you’d be excited to learn with us!

Thank you again for your support!

xoxo M & C

We explored the campus of their alma mater, Christopher Newport University, together and took photos until the sun went down. It was so nice to go to all the places that are so special to them as a couple: the corner they first met, the bench of the first kiss…

Sabina and Brent will celebrate their wedding at the West Manor Inn by Lynchburg, Virginia. We can hardly wait!

Kim and Brian’s wedding at the Inn at Warner Hall in Gloucester, Virginia simply took our breath away. It was exactly how a celebration of two people – and two families – coming together should be.

The beautiful venue was a gorgeous backdrop for the romantic outdoor ceremony, the sun was shining and the birds were singing. Kim looked like a princess in her Jenny Packham dress.

These two are more than just lovers. They are friends; friends that share an adventurous spirit that has led them around the world together. From North Carolina, to the jungles of Africa… culminating in a breathtaking, elegant wedding in the quiet of rural Gloucester County. From the time of their engagement session last Fall, to now, we’ve had the honor of getting to know them as friends, too.  It makes it all the more special to be able to share these images now.

We were so thrilled that everything just came together for their wedding day.   Kim and Brian had an absolutely fantastic team of vendors who came together to make their wedding beautiful. We’re especially happy to have had The Herrintons, a fantastic cinematography team and friends of ours, there to document their day on video. Their “moving pictures” are at the end of this blog.

Kim and Brian, it was such an honor photographing your wedding. We know this is just the beginning of the next chapter of your love story!

xoxo Michael and Carina
