At the beginning of the year, I registered for the Adorn Collective Workshops styled session at Rust Manor House. I love this venue for anyone wanting to host a Leesburg wedding. Historically, I’m either teaching the photography or hosting a shoot but I really wanted the chance to simply enjoy a day of shooting mostly film (medium format and 35mm) and enjoying a pre-styled shoot myself.
COVID shut downs delayed it by a few months but it was wonderful to be able to head up to Leesburg’s Rust Manor and enjoy this shoot with my friend, Nicole Ballard.
There were some lovely details to start the shoot and I enjoyed seeing all the possibilities within the venue. The reception table set up for an intimate affair was also a special little treat.
Our models, Jasmine and Jon, donned a BHLDN gown and an ASOS tux for their portraits.
They did a wonderful job, both together and separately. And Grace and Greenery provided the perfect bouquet for a mid-summer’s wedding day.
The venue itself seemed to glow in the summer sun as well!
And a hearty row of candles and greenery added to the romantic vingette.
Of course, that Portra 160 brings out the best in everyone!
As the sun become lower on the horizon, we explored all the lovely spots that Rust Manor has to offer. The lush landscaping made the venue pop and that late afternoon glow gave us some choice spots to work within.
We ended the evening with some golden light and…
…some lovely golden hour images walking away from one of my favorite Leesburg wedding venues. Rust Manor House gave all the feels for this summer styled session. It’s the perfect spot for a Leesburg wedding photographer to photograph a couple in love or a couple of great models!
