Eloping on a Mountain Overlook with Family and Pets in VA

I have photographed, performed, or been a part of hundreds of weddings and elopements. Every single one of them has something unique that I remember about them. For Eric and Jaime‘s elopement, it is without a doubt their best man…er…best DOG, Diego. There are probably not many people out there that can say they were part of a wedding on a mountain top with a dog in formal wear, tie included! Eric’s daughter and Jaime’s father were also in attendance. It was only a short walk from the parking area Bears Den to the scenic overlook, and we were fortunate to be the only ones there for me to perform a quick civil ceremony. A special mention also of Jaime’s bouquet which was made entirely of pages from a Harry Potter book.

  • Location: Bears Den • Bluemont, VA
  • Date: August 2017

“Aaron made our wedding amazing. We wanted something simple but wanted to make it special, and I felt that Aaron made that possible. The photos are gorgeous and we can’t wait to display them in our home. Thank you so much!” – Eric and Jaime B.
