Holy cow where to begin when remembering Taylor and Dan’s incredible day! I would have to say the biggest thing that made this day stick out so much to us would be the couple’s vows to each other. Their words were so touching, and completely from their heart of how much they love each other. It was like the perfect mixture of emotions from their tears and then just busting out laughing from being silly together.Read More
Lacey and Kurt have been together for 4 years, and had such a wonderful wedding day surrounded by all their friends and family! The Historic Post Office is right in their home town of Hampton Roads, and was such an elegant choice for their day. We love getting to shoot there, and actually will be back there tomorrow for a video day!Read More
One thing I LOVE that Hunter does when he puts together wedding films is how he tells the story of the day. From the beginning of getting ready all the way through to the last moment of the evening . Our couples get to watch back so many amazing moments. On a wedding day there is so much going on there is no way a bride and groom could remember them all. When they choose to have a film they don’t just see a still image they can actually go back and feel the emotions of the moments that were shared.Read More
What FUN I had last weekend doing these photos for a Styled Shoot! I love getting to photograph things like this where I get to just be creative.Read More
What a GORGEOUS wedding day Kelsey and Derek had at Bandit's Ridge! The prettiest pastels for details and florals. It was such a beautiful and unique venue. The inside reception spot with the light colored wood photographed so classic and nice. The outside little barn area where the horses stalls were was decorated so pretty, and made for a dazzling backdrop of lights for portraits! Not to mention the kindest vendors to work with at the facility. It was such a nice wedding day!Read More
There were SO many incredible moments through out this whole day. Several times where I was definitely moved to tears. Justine’s mom had recently passed away, and they did such a beautiful job honoring her through out the entire day. Her bouquet had a locket on it of her mother and grandmother. There was also a chair dedicated to her at the Ceremony. Justine also held her mother’s wedding photo for some photos with her same hat she wore. That is early in the film.
We were beyond blessed to capture these special memories for Justine and Matt! Make sure to not miss the end of the film during the daddy/daughter dance! I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place! Oh and YES everyone agrees Matt looks just like Vin Diesel haha!!!Read More
Sooo much love and so much pretty!!! Michelle and Shawn's wedding day was just beautiful in every way. They chose to have an intimate small wedding at their lovely home right in Smithfield. It was the perfect backdrop for their very sweet Ceremony. The Fall colors mixed with Fleur De Fou's gorgeousss florals was just stunning.
After having all the Family Pictures done they took a Horse and Carriage ride to The Smithfield Inn for their Reception. It was like straight out of a Fairy Tale! An absolutely exquisite handmade Wooden Farm Table adorned with flowers and candles awaited them when they arrived.. After everyone was finished with dinner it was time to cut the cake. Yummaries Bakery made a fabulous ( and delicious ) Naked Cake. They ended their evening with laughing, dancing, and then releasing lanterns over the water.
We are so happy for Shawn and Michelle! It was wonderful being part of their amazing day. We have also included their short Highlight Film at the bottom of this post.

Amanda and Josh just had their one month mark of being husband, and wife! We thought it was a perfect time to share their Wedding Highlight Film on the blog today!

This was such an AWESOME afternoon for Britni and Philip's Engagement Session! Philip used to work at the Fighter Factory restoring planes. He was able to have access to the hangers, and made this session by far one of the most unique ones I have ever done.Read More
Cindy and Zach had the most incredibly perfect wedding day! Gorgeous weather for the first weekend of September, and seriously some of the prettiest light I have ever seen! One of my favorite venues by far in this area is the Woman's Club of Portsmouth. Such a little hidden treasure for couples to have their dream day staying close to home.Read More
Emily and Tyler were amazing to work with! From the second we started their session to the last photo in the water we had such a wonderful time with them! We can't wait for their 2018 wedding!Read More
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.
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!!!Read More
