Any active duty military couple or preferred vendor referral.
Rev. Newell is absolutely phenomenal! I've had the pleasure of working with Cory a number of times over the years and, having photographed more than 200 weddings all over VA and beyond, he is The Best! Let me say that again, THE BEST! He truly cares about his couples and it shows. He brings so much energy and passion to the moment. I absolutely love how he engages the guests during the ceremony. He'll have everyone laughing one moment; tearing up the next, and moments later he'll have everyone laughing again. It is what every wedding ceremony should be: joyous, touching, fun, and all about the love of family and friends! You need to book him and book him now!
