Northern Virginia Wedding Photographer | Kelly Ewell Photography » Northern Virginia Wedding Photographer | Kelly Ewell Photography

For the last several days you’ve seen my favorite engagements, ceremonies, portraits, details, and receptions. There was a lot of happiness, a lot of prettiness, and a lot of hard decisions to lead up to make this post. After looking through all my favorites, I came up with these 14 as the “best of the best” from 2014. Either because I love the composition, the emotion, the look, or the memory associated with capturing the moment.

I hope you enjoy this last look at 2014! I can’t wait to see what waits for me to create in 2015!

Meet the Photographer: Hey there! I’m Kelly Ewell, a Northern Virginia wedding photographer who specializes in engagement, wedding, and anniversary photography. I live in Leesburg, VA with my husband and rescue pup, Piper. When I’m not at weddings, you can find me at the local wineries or renovating our farm, 48 Fields! I’d love for you to connect with me on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

You’ll never have an engagement, you’ll never witness a ceremony, you’ll never dance at a reception, and you’ll never appreciate the details, if it weren’t for the people. The two people, in fact, who pledged their love to each other on one of the most important and best days of their lives! (Which is why this post is going to be so long too!)

Although the time I get to spend creating wedding portraits of a bride and groom varies with each wedding, I feel it’s always the most important time of the day and when I get to create some images that couples will look back on for generations. Whether it’s an iconic and classic portrait or a fun and candid moment, wedding portraits showcase the two people who the day is all about!

A wedding wouldn’t be a wedding with out the bride and groom, so enjoy some of my favorite wedding portraits from 2014!

  • Renee - So much pretty!

We’ve looked at engagements, the lead up to the wedding day. We’ve seen ceremonies, the most important part of the day. We’ve partied with receptions, the most fun of the day.

But today we look back at all my favorite wedding details. Some may argue that the details are just small parts of a wedding, but to me the details are what helps make each wedding unique. From the jewelry brides choose to the colors of bridesmaid dresses to the flowers they hold in their bouquets, the details are some of the most thought out and planned parts of a wedding.

So enjoy some of my favorite details photos from all my weddings last year!

Favorite engagements? Check! Favorite ceremonies? Check!

Up today then is a look at my favorite reception photos from all the fun, exciting, and celebratory moments! From entrances, to toasts, to dances, it seemed like there was never a dull moment. Wedding receptions sure are a time to party, and my couples last year sure knew how to bring the good times!

I hope you enjoy a look back at the best reception moments!

Happy Monday! It’s going to be a week filled with all kinds of pretty here on the blog!

If you were here on Friday, you saw I posted my favorite engagement portraits from throughout last year. This week though will be all about weddings. It was fun and sentimental to look back at everyone’s wedding again! And there were just too many favorites in the end to put all of them in one post, so each day this week will take a look at a different part of the day. Today we’ll start with the point of a wedding day – saying I Do!

So here’s a look back at my favorite ceremony photos from 2014! Enjoy!
