Valentine's Day Themed Wedding Inspiration // Great Marsh Estate // Northern Virginia Photographer

Valentine's Day is the perfect theme for an event that celebrates love and commitment. This wedding inspiration was set perfectly at a romantic Georgian mansion in Bealeton, Virginia, called Great Marsh Estate. With a picturesque venue, a gorgeous couple, a beautiful bridesmaid, red and pink florals, and stunning details, I cannot help myself but fall in love with weddings even more. It was a joy to capture this day. And, did I mention all of the involved vendors are based in Virginia? Yup. I'm convinced. Virginia is truly for lovers!

Wedding Inspiration // Lowndes Grove, Charleston SC // Rachiel Q Photography

I had been very interested with film photography for over 6 months now. So when I learned about a workshop hosted by a hybrid photographer, Carlos Hernandez, I quickly jumped in. And, let me tell you, I am SO glad that I did! The workshop was such a great experience. Not only we got to learn from an established film photographer, but we also got to use those techniques right away and able to photograph a lovely set up designed by Tristan of Tristan Needham Design.  Here are some of my favorite images from the workshop.


The details are to die for...
