If you look hard enough you can find the most interesting architecture in Downtown Norfolk, the city really makes for some great portraits. This was no different when we photographed Laura and Mike, Laura really wanted some nice scenery in her photos and Norfolk made for the perfect backdrop. Here are a few of our favorites from their session.
Recently we had a chance to collaborate with Misty Saves the Day to do a styled shoot for Coastal Virginia Bride. The historic Cavalier in Virginia Beach was the backdrop for this shoot, with a not so formal dress. Here are a few of my favorites as well as the magazine article.

There was once a time in my life when I prayed to be where I’m at now. The older I get the more I see, life is about the journey and not the destination. Life comes with a lot of ups and downs and I saw my fair share of both this year. 2018 has been an up and down rollercoaster ride and through all the twist and turns i’m still here able to write my last blog of the year.
This year has been nothing short of phenomenal, professionally. Personally i’ve dealt with a lot. I’ve lost two people i’ve cared about deeply my entire life. I didn’t know how strong I was until I had no other choice. I had to pick myself up and be the calm in a storm for my clients, while dealing with my own storms internally.
I really can’t thank each and everyone of my clients enough for allowing my team and I to be apart of your day. I sincerely thank you all. All the smiles, the tears, and the laughs, thank you for allowing me to document it. It means the world to me.
Keep your Family and Loved ones close. Happy New Year
First Landing State Park is a beautiful location in Virginia Beach and even prettier in the Fall. Giulliana and Adam choose this location, because of the beautiful tree in the park. We had a fun time at taking their engagement photos and can’t wait for their wedding next November! Until then check out a few of our favorites from their session.
It’s something about Fall engagement sessions that make my job a little bit more interesting. I don’t know if it’s the colors or the air, but I love photographing couples in the Fall. I met C’esa and Q in July of this year. When we talked about doing their engagement session C’esa immediately wanted to do fall portraits in Richmond. So we scheduled it and made it happen. Here are a few of my favorites from their Richmond Engagement Session.

Jenna and Jay came all the way from New York to do their engagement photos this summer. It was unbearably hot, but we got through it and captured so many amazing images. Here are few of my favorites from their Yorktown Engagement Session.
Summer months in Virginia Beach can be brutal, however Joya toughed it out in her beautiful gown the week before her wedding. We got a lot of great portraits, I had to wait a while to share these. Here are a few of my favorites from Mrs. Bowen's session.
San Diego is a gorgeous city and California is a even more beautiful state. I had the chance to meet and photograph a special couple at Balboa Park. Sarah and Brandon we're very fun to work with, these are a few of my favorites from their session.
Stacey and Bobby are a super fun couple. A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting them in their hometown of Harrisonburg to photograph their engagement photos. We had a great time talking about their wedding plans this Fall and talking about how they met. I can't wait for their Kings Family Vineyard wedding this September, until then here are a few of my favorites from their session.
First I have to say I absolutely love Mindy and Alex! We had a great time at their session, the love these two have for one another shines on camera. We started their engagement session in Downtown Norfolk, Waterside is full of locations to photograph. The fun really began at Greenbrier Farms, where Mindy and Alex are getting married. I can't wait for their wedding in June, until then check these portraits out!
Earlier this month I photographed Chloe and Dave's engagement session. We had a great time walking Botanical Garden and the Norfolk Hilton Main. I can't wait for their wedding later this year.
