Peaceful Plantation Bridal Session Monday, August 8, 2011 ~ 9:08 a.m.

This is such a pretty bridal photo session, that I actually thought it was a styled shoot before looking more closely! The bride and groom was married this past April, and currently live on a gorgeous plantation with their own little chicken farm and horse stables in Staunton, Virginia.

Beautifully captured by Katelyn James Photography, the Grey Gables plantation served as a really peaceful setting for Jill's bridal shoot, with its charming porch, sprawling fields of green and cherry blossoms. I love all of the gorgeous light in these photos, and there's a real sense of warmth and contentment emanating from the bride throughout the shoot that really draws me in. That, and the little chick that Jill is holding in one of the photos below is guaranteed to make you smile on an otherwise average Monday!
