Catherine & Isaac || Old Hickory Golf Club Wedding


On the last Saturday of October, Catherine & Isaac were married. Every part of the day was centered on love and family. Rich shades of red & dark navy, the elegant flowers, Catherine’s vintage dress (which she found at a second-hand shop and then altered the top herself – wow!), and the exploding fall colors in the background made for an epic end to my 2021 Fall weddings. 

The day started at Catherine’s family’s home. Catherine chose to have both of her sisters and her mom help her get dressed in the morning which was so beautiful and special. One of my other favorite parts from the morning was right as Catherine walked out the front door and her three brothers saw her for the first time. Such a sweet and completely unplanned moment! 

Their wedding Mass took place at St. Raymond’s in Fairfax, VA. I actually went to Mass at this church one random Sunday a few years ago and thought it would be such a beautiful church to photograph a wedding in, so I was really excited when I realized it was the same one! 

For their photos, Catherine wanted to go to the historic downtown area of Occoquan, VA. We had to compete with several homecoming groups and trick-or-treaters and I had to be strategic to avoid the Halloween decorations everywhere, but we made it work and their photos are so precious! One of the funniest and most random things happened while we were taking photos down on the dock. Two married couples were hanging out on their boats which were docked right by us and after congratulating Catherine and Isaac, they asked if they would want to take a celebratory shot with them. The whole encounter cracked Catherine and Isaac up and reminded us all of how good, fun, and generous total strangers can be. 

Old Hickory Golf Club was a great venue for Catherine and Isaac. When we arrived, they had golf carts waiting for the entire wedding party to take us to a beautiful location for the rest of the photos. Once we finished up those, it was time to celebrate! 

Catherine & Isaac, it was a joy and honor to photograph your wedding!
