A couple weeks before Haley and Josh's big day we took these fun Bridal Portraits of Haley with her horses. Diesel was also part of their Engagement Session last year, and seemed to love the camera! Her portraits are sure to make you smile as you see how much fun we had through all her giggling photos! lol
Back in April I was blessed to be part of the Audrey Rose Workshop, a “styled shoot” that we would be able to photograph, and keep the images. It was my first time at the newly restored Historic Post Office. I have heard so much about the new venue, and was completely in LOVE with it.
Everyone give a BIG congratulations to these two!!! I was completely ECSTATIC when I heard the news that Whitney and Chance were expecting. Then meeting up with them, and their two fur babies to do this announcement session was so much fun! You can see the JOY written all over their faces! What a blessed little one to be coming into such a wonderful home with two amazing people!
Greg and Kristin had such a sweet and intimate wedding day in Colonial Williamsburg. They held their ceremony at the historic Wren Chapel on the William and Mary Campus. Both Kristin and Greg are professors there. Kristin's dress was handmade by her new sister-in-law, and included ribbon from her mother's dress from 1972. It was just stunning!
We had so much fun on our week long vacation to Corolla. It was so great to have all the cousins together to play. Liam has been asking for each of them everyday since we left. He LOVED the beach. He could hardly wait everyday to get there, and be with everyone.
Hunter has been on Military orders in Arkansas for the last 5 weeks. He has done an amazing job producing three Highlight Films while being in a very strict class to further his Recruiting career in the Army. I am so PROUD of him, and all he is accomplishing.
When we pulled into Elberton Farm our jaws dropped. Absolutely stunning rolling green hills on both sides of us, and we were immediately greeted by the horses. Being an equestrian my whole life I felt right at home as soon as we got there. Elberton Farm is Cassandra's childhood home in Darlington, Maryland. The PERFECT place for their wedding day!
Dino and Jenn's intimate wedding on the beach in Corolla last week was truly an evening full of JOY! These two were just beaming from ear to ear as they made eye contact as she came over the dunes to walk to him at the ceremony. I am so happy for them, and honored to have captured these precious memories for them to have forever.
Hunter traveled to Trump Winery in beautiful Charlottesville. Quickly he was met with several familiar faces from our hometown in Smithfield. Rachael and Matthew had such a breathtaking day! The views of the mountains were truly spectacular!!!
Cara and Jacob had the perfect Southern Wedding in Williamsburg. There little hidden gem of a venue was Mallardee Farm. The farm is so pretty, and full of beautiful places for photos! The farm completely captured the vision for this sweet couples wedding day.
You guys I love that we offer Highlight Films to our couples. I never would of thought we would be doing film, but it is one of my FAVORITE things we get to do. Today I wanted to share the WHY and the WHAT of the details of a Highlight Film.
What fun I had with this amazing couple in Yorktown last week! Cheryl and Zeek were both so excited about getting their photos done at the same location that Zeek proposed. The light couldn't of been prettier on the beach that afternoon. The sunset made for the perfect back drop creating a golden glow on the bridge.
This little boy below is my heart! He makes me laugh and smile every day. He is two years old going on twenty.... he is so smart and just amazes us every day with his hilarious personality and sweet spirit.
Kayleigh and Scott had the most Christ centered wedding day! Their day was just beautiful held at The Kiln Creek Golf Club and Resort. Their goal of giving God glory for everything was fully accomplished!
Last Sunday I had the privilege of being part of this gorgeous Styled Shoot. I had never been to the Historic Jasmine Plantation, and it was such a great venue. So many picture perfect places to photograph. We had two beautiful couples to work with that were so sweet to work with!
Kristle and Chris are getting married in June!!! I am so excited to join them on their wedding day in Virginia Beach. Downtown Portsmouth is filled with pretty houses and old timey streets. Such a neat place to do photos, and so much to choose from. Kristle brought along some fun props to play with too! My favorite was the chalkboard sign she had that read " We love because He first loved us. " - John 4:19
Amber and Drew's wedding was so UNIQUE! It was held at the Virginia Living Museum in Newport News. Surrounded by loved ones and friends... and a few wild life buddies it was such a fun wedding! Even during the reception the staff at the Living Museum walk around with furry friends for guests to get to pet and see. How cool is that???
Meghan and Ricky are such an incredible couple to have met, and had the honor of capturing their day. They met in the Navy, and have been together for two years. Ricky proposed to Meghan at Christmas time at his families home in New Orleans. They have traveled the world together, and been on two deployments!
I was just inspired to sit down, and write this blog. I am so excited and anxious for this year. I can not tell you how honored I feel with each wedding and client who books with us. We get to capture your memories... the things that matter the most to you... we get to pause time and represent a piece of your heart.
