Market at Grelen Wedding | Charlottesville Wedding Photographer



Last fall, I had the opportunity to be part of planning this Market at Grelen Wedding Styled Shoot. I got together with Arianna, another wedding photographer I’ve worked with before, to create this styled shoot based on representing diversity in the wedding industry.

We featured BIPOC (biracial indigenous people of color) and LGBTQ+ couples. Both Arianna and I wanted to add diversity to our portfolio and show support that we are for photographing and representing people of all skin tones, beliefs, and sexual preferences. LOVE IS LOVE🏳️‍🌈

The Market at Grelen is an amazing wedding venue with mountain views & some really unique spots for photos. It’s also a cool place to go pick apples or have lunch if you’re ever in the area.

Rachel did a phenomenal job with these wedding invitations. They featured custom gold foil and a hand drawn image of the venue. I love all the little details here!
