Orange County, Virginia Style Shoot

Posted by Jeffra on Jun 06, 2012

About this Shoot: Exciting 1930’s themed shoot in Orange County, Virginia, including some of Orange’s finest wedding professionals. With an array of antique shops and the historic back-drop of Orange County, why not build a wedding around what Orange County is most known for….it’s history.

Wedding season is upon us, and with that, we thought it would be a great idea to showcase what Orange County has to offer in terms of wedding amenities.  What better way to show that than with a styled photography shoot at one of the most beautiful farms in the state of Virginia.
