Richmond Wedding Photography - Belle Isle Bridal Portraits

What do you do when you have a gorgeous friend with a wedding gown, a free evening and the beautiful Belle Isle, Richmond nearby? If you're a wedding and portrait photographer, you grab your gear and go take pictures!

I love taking pictures at Belle Isle because there are so many pretty views that make great portrait backgrounds. The quarry has nice soft peach colored rocks and vibrant green leaves reflecting in the pooled water beneath.

The Rocks on the James River offer fabulous views of the sunset, and the wide open fields beg you to stop and appreciate their lush expanses.

And if you're lucky enough to walk back over the pedestrian bridge right after sunset, you'll be treated to spectacular, sparkling views of the Richmond city skyline.

Special thanks to my friend Becca for being so beautiful inside and out, and for being such a blast to shoot with!
