Fall colors galore from this past weekend 😆
Wedding, family, senior and portrait photographer - also a contributing photographer at Georgetown University and for the Autism Society of Northern VA
Hello all! I officially started Gracie Withers Photography in November of 2014 while living in Lynchburg, Virginia and moved back home to the Northern Virginia area in the summer of 2016 to pursue my business full-time. After living in Lynchburg for almost 6 years, it feels great to be home, with family around and running my business where I always envisioned I would. I am a portrait, wedding, editorial and sports photographer based out of Aldie, Virginia. I am also a contributing photographer for Georgetown University and George Mason University Athletics. Thank you all so much for reading and please do not hesitate to reach out to me! I would love to hear from you, whether it's about the service I passionately provide, traveling the globe, or even for running advice..
Fall colors galore from this past weekend 😆
A sunrise engagement shoot is always worth the lack of sleep...thank you to these two for putting up with me and I am so excited for my fellow forever hornets Alyssa & Daniel !
Welp, it was tough to narrow down, but here are a few of my favorites from Rachel and Ariana's beautiful wedding last weekend!
From high school sweethearts to the future Mr. and Mrs. ALSO, Hannah's dad was my high school English teacher, during my senior year she and I spent the greatest Wakefield soccer season together, and I was once stranded in the U.S Virgin Islands with Zach and his family 😂 ... loved catching up with these two and I am so excited for their 2019 wedding!
This is a reminder to frame your photos friends 😊 it’s easy to forget this day in age but it’s always worth it!
For my birthday, Dan framed one of my favorite photos from July 7, 2018. That day still feels like it’s sinking in sometimes..
1️⃣ I can’t believe it’s October...
2️⃣ That means it’s wedding month for these two!
3️⃣ 19 days - thank you Rachel for the math help

WELP, IT’S LIVE! It’s been a rough 24+ hours but I am so excited that my new website is officially live and (almost) 100% looking the way I want it to. The blog is still not up as the transfer of some posts is taking some extra time...BUT my first blog post from this new site will be all about the weekend Dan and I got engaged so keep an eye out for that one!
After many months of time and work, I can’t explain the nerves and feelings that I’ve had this week as this has rolled out. However, I’m so excited to finally be here! And of course I would LOVE and APPRECIATE it if you would check out the new home of GWP when you have a moment, thanks friends! Any comments and feedback are greatly appreciated!
FINALLY, thank you Showit for a great platform, With Grace & Gold for a beautiful design, and a continued thank you to Katherine Zvara Goss for my logos!
Saturday was just lovely...so elegant and I couldn’t be happier for the Perrys!!! Congrats Brandon & Kirstie!
As always, I loved my time with these three this weekend! We even took family photos almost a year ago to the date. Such an exciting time for them and I can't wait to keep up with what's next for them! Thank you Lynchburg and LCWS for introducing me to the lovely Christina Elliott years ago

More often than sometimes, I struggle with social media. Sometimes, I feel overwhelmed by the number of photos at my disposal. Sometimes I have felt inclined or pressured to only post one genre or a certain kind of photo.
This past spring and summer I have photographed everything from families, to little ones, to anniversary parties, and weddings. I love it all and I love sharing it all! These are just a small group of my favorites that I have pulled from the last few months. Yes I have posted some of them, and some I have not.
It's only less than a week until my new website launches 😁 and doing a major refresh of galleries has given me the opportunity to relive much of what I have photographed in the last 6 months and even as far back as a year. I can't help but THANK all of these individuals who have trusted me over the last few months and years to document something special for them. Much love to you all and happy weekending everyone!
There’s been plenty of tweaking, editing and updating of galleries taking place on my NEW WEBSITE (in progress) this week and while I was pulling photos, I came across one of my favorites from one of my first engagement sessions.
I remember how patient Whitney and Jonathan were with me as they were one of my first couples to photograph when I started my business up here, and I will forever be grateful for them!
I love following this couple’s life after their wedding almost two years ago. Aaand you’ll definitely be able to find them on my new website when it rolls out in just two weeks! 😆 ALSO, I’ve decided to add something special to my wedding packages for all engaged LYNCHBURG ALUMNI (❤️ buzz buzz 🐝) who are looking for a photographer and it’ll be announced then!
Only a few more weeks until I get to photograph some amazing moments like this one.
Katie added a first look with her dad into the schedule a couple of weeks before the wedding day and it was the best decision...definitely one of the greatest reactions from a father I have ever seen!

Wooohoooo this Bermuda blog post is finally ready and some of my favorite travel photos of all time are in this pile! Everything from Dan and Carol's week long 60th anniversary celebration, to Harbor lights in Hamilton, and plenty of GoPro footage from snorkeling and exploring caves at Ameraltee bay. All this and much more!

Missing these two and their lovely wedding, BUT I happily relived it during some final edits before their full gallery went out this week 👏🏼
While organizing and editing a full wedding is a long process, looking through the final gallery is always so fun and satisfying to see!
We are back and definitely missing this place. One of my favorite things about Bermuda was the people. Everyone we met was so nice and hospitable! The cliff jumping, exploring and 60th anniversary celebration of my future grandparents in law (not sure if that’s how you say it) also made for an amazing week. Can’t wait to share many more photos and solid go pro footage!
Rachad & Katie’s wedding day is on the blog and it's full of tears, amazing moments, family love, beautiful colors, one of the greatest dresses I have ever seen and the famous Lynchburg legend Dr. Roux as the officiant! Just click below to see all of it and more friends! Happy Friday!
What an amazing wedding day for these two! Letters, gifts, tears, Katie and her father’s first look, the prettiest dress, details and colors, and the one and only Dr. Roux!
Congrats to Rachad & Katie! Hope you have the best honeymoon!

I first met Lucas when he was my college team's student athletic trainer and first knew Audra when I photographed her pitch for Lynchburg's Softball team! I have known them apart and now they are married! Their Massachusetts wedding was perfect and beautiful so here we are with sneak peaks from start to finish!

HOLY MOLY...Congrats to Lucas & Audra! So happy for you two and what a whirlwind of a weekend in Massachusetts at this beautiful place! This day could not have been any better and I can’t wait to share more on the blog this week.
I recently took some menu and location photos for this lovely place! Everyone there is so nice, they have local, organic and home grown items, plus a delicious menu with everything from coffee and breakfast to gourmet sammys! It’s an awesome stop for any meal, drink, or even a tomato plant 😀 so if you’re driving through Aldie check them out!
So excited to say Julie & Eric received their whole gallery this week! Hope these two had an amazing honeymoon!
Today I'm sharing some EXCITING NEWS about what's coming in July!!! This week's blog post announces what it is of course, how I'm doing it, aaaand some sneak peaks! Happy weekend to you all!

Last last weekend (yes I said that right) was one of my craziest spring weekends and it's all on the blog today...a quaint Lynchburg wedding with some Lynchburg legends, a lovely family shoot in Roanoke, and a local wedding where I actually teared up for the first time ever photographing a wedding!
Not this past weekend, but LAST weekend was one of my craziest weekends this spring. I started in Lynchburg for Sarah and Ernst's wedding on Friday the 18...
Me oh my, the biggest congrats to Julie & Eric! I have felt pretty much speechless when trying to talk about this wedding. Sunday was such a beautiful day and also one sandwiched in between a lot of rain that’s for sure! It’s been a long time coming for these two and I still can’t believe that I got to be a part of their big day.
It takes a lot to get me to tear up at weddings when I’m doing my thing, however, I couldn’t help but during a couple of moments on Sunday. I can’t wait to share more about their story and their amazing day on the blog this week!
Kelsey's senior session is finally on the blog and I am so excited to share our time from the lovely Rust Manor House and Sanctuary! A unique style, where Kelsey is heading in the fall, some fun "props," more confetti, and even one of my favorite Christmas ornaments! Enjoy and happy Friday everyone!
First off, I can't believe that we are in the second half of May. I have always remembered "April showers brings May flowers" and all of this rain is confu...
This picture..I thought about it this weekend when I saw fellow photographers and friends posting Mother’s Day photos from wedding days.
I have left this photo on the front page of my website for the longest time. Yes I know “the rules” of refreshing your website but I could never take this image away.
I love this moment so much, remember it very well, and it reminds me of that perfect October day that I photographed for an amazing couple who’s adventures I flipping love following! They actually just spent time in California on the set of FRIENDS (so jealous).
Always grateful for the long time friendship with this family and for Jonathan and Whitney for having me at their Waveland wedding.
Dancing shoes anyone? I loved seeing this idea in action a couple of weeks ago!
A busy weekend is almost here and I'm so excited for it...but I'll share more about why on Saturday (stay tuned on my story)
Happy almost weekend everyone!
Last Saturday was so much fun and just perfect! I am so happy for you Carlie and Barret and hope you're having the best time. Scope out this week's blog post to see why this day never felt like work for me and what made it so special for these two! Happy Friday friends!
Last Saturday I spent the day in Jeffersonton at one of the quaintest and most fun weddings I have had the pleasure of photographing. Carlie and Barret's p...

Things have been coo coo, in full swing this spring, and I’m so excited for my next wedding of the year this weekend!
