A beautiful intimate & glamorously dark Virginia Wedding

Today I am excited to share this beautiful, intimate & glamorously dark Virginia Wedding.

Images were captured by Carley at CYork Photography.

CYork Photography is a Central Virginia Photographer specializing in weddings & engagements, portraits, maternity, graduations, and other events.

It is comprised of Founder/Photographer Carley York and her sister and second shooter Meagan.

Carley has been shooting weddings for 8 years and Megan joined 2 years ago after the discovery of her amazing raw talent.

They work in a photojournalistic stick believing that each image tells a story and they want to help you to capture and savour each candid authentic moment.


Carley shares some recollections of the couples Big Day…


“Amber and Tommy are certainly unique, and untraditional and their amazing wedding reflected them perfectly.”

“Tommy is a male cheerleader for for NFL Baltimore Ravens and they are huge Harry potter fans and tiny dog lovers (they have 2).”

“They love everything old Hollywood and anything a little strange.”


“Their intimate wedding set in Old Towne Alexandria was full of glamorously dark details, rich colors, and just dripping in love.”

“I went gaga over Amber’s black wedding dress with its sheer accents and silver rose details, she was a vision.”

“And Tommy dashed us all in a checkered button down and custom cologne designed just for his big day.”

The Alexandrian where we got ready was just blocks away from their venue, Virtue Feed & Grain,  and we got to explore endless cobble-stoned side streets while traveling inbetween.”


“The couple did a first look and we captured most of the portraits before the ceremony.”

“More and more of my couples opt for first looks, it makes the opportunity for 30% more bride/groom photos and they get to have a more intimate first look instead of being in front of everyone.”


“Their beautiful emotional ceremony was after sunset, as they wanted to be able to see the stars and city lights over the bay next to their venue before partying into the night.”



Thank you so much to Carley for sharing this outstanding Virginia Wedding.

The pretty red accents in the styling bring a hint of luxe and warmth to the dark styling..

Ambers gown is just stunning and perfect for the Bride that likes to express herself and her deep auburn tresses solidify the smouldering bridal look.

Combined with the grooms amazing dark suit and piercing gaze this couple bond to make for some striking portraits…


Carley would love the opportunity to pop over the pond…

As first looks become popular here she would love to both visit the UK and soak in its culture but also welcomes the opportunity to shoot a Wedding here.
