Birkby House Wedding Photos | Leesburg, VA Photographer | Erik & Lauren


Located in historic Leesburg, Va., Birkby House, the estate of Thomas Birkby, was built in 1770. The beautiful event space includes a main house, carriage house, white gazebo and gardens, all lovely backdrops for wedding photos, from the first look to the wee morning hours of the reception. 


This spring event was perfectly timed to take advantage of the venue's stunning gardens and outside spaces. A classy, yet entirely fun, affair, the wedding had a few extra-special touches we're thrilled to have caught on camera, including a first look between the bride and father of the bride. 


Lauren and Erik met in July 2014 and were automatically a perfect match. Four years of date nights, outings with friends and family and cozy nights of Netflix binges all led up to their April wedding. Surrounded by their loved ones, they tied the knot in high style, with an event fitting their passion and love for one another.
