London Marie Ormsby made her arrival on August 28th at 2:19 PM. A future leadline, and pony rider in the making! She could not of been more perfect for her photos. She was cozy and sleepy the whole time! I hope you love looking through these moments! I could go on an on about how precious she is, and how happy I am for them... but you can see for yourself the joy on Ty and Kendall's face... and how adorable their baby girl is!
When our couples choose us to not only capture their photos, but their film too I am so excited for them! Photos are amazing, and truly I am believer that you can never have enough! You never get a moment back once it is gone. You can't relive that exact moment ever again. So a photo of that moment saves it forever! A film of that moment literally draws the emotion you felt in the words you were saying, or the even the breath you were taking.
Jason and Leigh had an absolutely beautiful day for their wedding! It was just starting to cool off outside, and that crisp Fall air start to make its appearance. The Signature at West Neck is such a fabulous venue! Their Ceremony site, Reception on the covered patio, and different places for portraits gave such a variety to the day.
Ashleigh just had a beautiful wedding in Ireland on August 26th! Now that she is married I can share her bridals in Smithfield! I loved so much getting to take these for her! They were at the sweetest little farm in Smithfield that is only a golf cart away from Fort Boykins. After we finished up at the farm capturing all the equestrian ones with her horse Matt we headed to the water to capture the sunset. Oh what a sunset it was!!!
The Carty's wedding day was a dream come true for them! Katelyn's signature color of mint was elegantly placed through out her details of the day. Women's Club of Portsmouth was gorgeous as always! I could go on and on about how much fun we had, but I want you to get to see it! See the joy, love, and laughter that we had the honor of capturing!
I have been dying to share these beautiful bridals ever since we did them! Katelyn chose Norfolk Botanical Gardens for her Portraits, and we had SO many gorgeousss places at the gardens to use. The trees, flowers, fountains, and a few flying friends! My favorite part of Katelyn's Bridals was getting to go into the Butterfly Garden. We were even able to coax one of them onto Katelyn's bouquet for a few photos.
I love offering the Motherhood Collection, because I whole heartedly understand how precious this journey is. I want to be able to capture each detail along the way for families. It is such an honor to be part of such a priceless time!
Hunter and I had the best time for our anniversary! We decided to go on the Spirit of Norfolk and we had a blast! It was like being at a wedding reception without the cameras in our hands - ha ha! We danced the night away!
Haley and Josh's wedding was SO MUCH FUN! So much love, joy, and laughter...with a little country twang ha ha made this wedding perfect for this amazing couple! You can't look through these photos, and not smile!
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!
