It was such a pleasure being part of Veronica and John’s wedding at the Williamsburg Winery in Williamsburg Virginia.  They are a really great couple, who compliment each other so well.  Veronica is totally my kind of girl, who even was watching football while getting into her gown!  John has a great sarcastic sense of humor that I love.  So I was looking forward to them being my last wedding of the 2014 season.  I knew it was going to be a great one, and it WAS!!  We started off at the Wedmore, where Veronica got ready, then the drizzle stopped and the sun came out and dried up the property just in time for their first look!  It was a beautiful day…full of love, dancing, friends, family, and FUN!!  And Veronica and John have been traipsing around France leaving me photos of their adventures and I absolutely LOVE that they have been thinking of me and are sharing the beautiful things they are seeing together!  Congratulations you two!!  XOXO!!!

Ashley & Ben are such an awesome couple and I was so thrilled to be part of their epic wedding day!!  They met in England, at Brunel University where they both attended.  Ben is from England, though he was born in Scotland, and Ashley was doing her Master’s degree there.  They are both really fun loving and easy going and I love their sense of humor.  Ashley looked absolutely STUNNING in her Madeline Gardner gown!!  Oh and did I mention that she is a wonderful baker??  She even made all the wedding favors and two of the desserts on the cake table, for their wedding at the Half Moone Cruise Terminal in Norfolk Virginia.  They had lots of people come from all over the world for their wedding.  It was a really fun night full of dancing, drinking, toasts and fun!  And her Dad gave one of my FAVORITE toasts of the year!!  Susan Geoghegan from 29:11 Celebrations made sure that all the moving parts flowed smoothly and all the amazing vendors made sure the wedding was just perfect.  And though it was a little warm for our Friends from across the pond, it was honestly just a perfect day!!  Congratulations you two!  I hope I can someday come and visit you in London!  XOXO!!

Krista and Andy met online and immediately hit it off!  They are both really funny and I had a great time hanging out with them in the Freemason area of Norfolk Virginia for their engagement session.  Andy and Krista recently bought a house in Chesapeake, but before that they lived in the Freemason area of Norfolk.  They love all the interesting little areas that downtown has to offer…Andy even proposed to her at her favorite spot near the water.  So it was a great place to shoot their engagement session.  I loved getting to know them better.  I found out all sorts of great things about them…like Krista was a great softball player…but loves a good game of dodgeball and is amazing at it!  And Andy was a competitive dancer!!  When he flipped Krista upside down, with total ease, I was shocked!!  :-)  I can’t wait for their wedding in April.  It is going to be so fun to watch these two get married!!

This past weekend, I crammed three weddings into 1 weekend.  This may not seem like a huge feat, if you don’t work in the wedding industry…but believe me…it is like the Superbowl!  While I truly believe I have the BEST job in the world, it is not the easiest job.  I don’t just stand up, put my camera in auto mode and shoot away.  The job of wedding photographer is VERY demanding.  We work long hours, mostly on our feet.  We take no breaks, so that we don’t miss something.  We carry heavy equipment, sometimes for long stretches of time.  We solve problems all day long…from little things like, which necklace looks best, to big ones like trying to beat fast-moving rain storms, finding missing clothing or family members, lacing dresses, and dodging Uncle Bob’s, who step on our feet, so they don’t miss a shot with their iPhone’s.  We are constantly trying to keep everyone calm and happy and we have to finish everything that needs to be done in a specific time, or we will ruin everything!  There are a LOT of moving parts during a wedding day, and your Photographer is constantly making sure that they are all moving seamlessly.

So I was NERVOUS about triple wedding weekend.  Would I have enough energy to be as effective on day 3 as on day 1?  Would my body cooperate?  Could I keep up with the demand?  The whole week before I started, I woke up at 1:30a.m. and had wedding nightmares.  I forgot my camera in one, in another I got stuck in the tunnel and didn’t make it to the Ceremony on time.  So I didn’t sleep well all week.  Then I caught a terrible cold.  One that made me dizzy when I would stand up too long.  I got more and more nervous about how I would survive 3 weddings much less 1!  When we were driving to our first wedding of the weekend, I was so nervous!  I am always nervous before weddings, so that wasn’t too abnormal…but this was like panic attack nervous.  We took a quick detour, got some cough drops to open up my nose, and after a few deep breaths…I was ready to tackle the day.  And it was perfect!!  Day two and three were perfect too!  In fact, on day three Megan and I wobbled harder than we have EVER wobbled at a wedding!!  So I conquered triple wedding weekend!  And I ROCKED it!  I can’t WAIT to share the images from these amazing couples beautiful weddings.  But First, I must thank some of my behind the scenes people who truly made this possible!

First, my truly amazing Husband Jay!  You are the BEST!  From feeding me waters all day long, to having sandwiches at the ready, to carrying a heavier load so that I didn’t, to getting me cough drops last-minute, to cooking me steak dinner and cleaning up the house….and EVERYTHING you do!  I LOVE you!  And honestly, I am only as good as I am because of YOU!!  Thank you!!

To Megan Coleman, you are such an awesome shooter/assistant!!  To lacing Bride’s dresses, to wobbling HARD with me, to telling me to shut up when I need it, you are essential to Leigh Skaggs Photography and when I don’t work with you, I don’t laugh as hard, or make our faces, and I miss you!  A LOT!!  Thank you for being amazing!

To Alisz Hatch, you are a wonderful addition to our team!  I love that you can drive fast, you work so hard, you love to learn new things, and my favorite is when you come a little more out of your shell and we have so much fun!!  You are essential to me too, and I absolutely appreciate everything you have done this year with us!  Thank You!!

To my Mom and Step-Dad, Bob.  Who take care of my kids and Wilbur, especially 3 days in a row….especially when I add a soccer tournament into the mix!  Thank you for being so reliable that I know I can go the whole wedding without checking my phone at all.  I don’t think I can truly express how much it means to me to know that my Family is so well taken care of.   I know that Truman will be on time to his game…with Mohawk at the ready, Morgan will have everything she needs, and Wilbur will be well-loved.  It is a true load off my mind that I don’t have to worry about them at all.  I could not be as effective as I am if I were worried about my Family.  So Thank You!  What you do for me is priceless!!   And I LOVE you!!

And speaking of taking care of Wilbur…thank you Debbie and Kayla for pitching in to get Wilbur out and playing.  He loves his time with you two, and it means so much to me to know that he is not stuck inside all day!  I HEART you two!!  Send me the bill for the flip-flop! Triple Wedding Weekend...How I survived!!  And a well deserved Thank You tribute to some of my VIPs!

And lastly, to Morgan and Truman.  Thank YOU for not ever making me feel bad when I miss soccer games, or am not home on the weekend, and always understanding that this is my job.  Thank you for helping me in all the ways you do!  It makes my job so much easier that you don’t give me guilt about missing things and that you always ask how things went and that you understand that this is our Family business.  It helps to feed us and pay for a roof over our heads.  I love that you both are so willing to do your part!  Thank you!!  I LOVE YOU!!!!

I will leave you with some photos of Megan and I tearing up the wobble!!  Please disregard my pants…that place was dusty!  :-)  Happy Monday Everyone!!

I had a great time getting to know Remy and Mike at First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach Virginia last weekend.  I can’t wait to shoot their Water Table wedding next year.  Mike is a Pharmacist and Remy is a 3rd Grade teacher.  When Mike decided to propose to Remy he had a HUGE surprise planned for her.  He took her to Richmond, where he has a friend that flies planes.  Then he found an artist to draw a photo of a dog pharmacist proposing to a cat teacher.   Once they were up in the air he presented her with his gift!  She of course said “YES,”  but since they were in a small plane Mike was not able to actually get down on 1 knee during this elaborate and amazing proposal.  So during our photo session, he fixed that and re-proposed to her on bended knee!  I can’t wait to watch these two get Married! First Landing State Park Engagement Photographer  Remy & Mike are getting Married!!
