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.
With her beautiful smile and incredible personality, Joanna made her Bridal Session a breeze at the Hilton Main. I've had to wait for a little over a month to share these, but here they are. Enjoy.

I love the Eastern Shore; it's close to my heart because my family is from there. When I met Ashly and Andrew, The Eastern Shore came up because Andrew is from there. Andrew also proposed to Ashly in his hometown on a beautiful scenic dock. When we started planning their engagement session, they immediately thought back to that location. So we went and photographed their session there, we got some really great photos and I'm excited to share them. I can't wait for their wedding this October.
First dates are what lead to marriage sometimes. Charm and Ty had their first date at the Movie Bistro in Hampton. So when it came time to do their engagement session, it was only right to go back where it all started. Charm got us the movie theater for the afternoon, and we spent the entire day taking pictures and talking about their wedding plans this fall. I can't wait for their wedding this September at the Chrysler Museum.

Thank you to all of the vendors who helped make this project possible. Enjoy.

Virginia and it's fantastic weather. When we started planning their engagement session, Megan and James had their hearts set on Fort Monroe. The day finally came to photograph their session and the rain was coming. None the less we pulled through and got some great images! I can't wait for their wedding this September. Until then here some of my favorites from their session.
Baltimore Maryland, a beautiful city with tons of hills. Hills that I got to showcase on my trip to photograph Mikia and Conrad's engagement session. I had a great time walking the city with these two. Conrad talked all about the city, and it's history. All while telling me about how he loves Mikia and how they met. I can't wait to photograph their wedding this August it's going to be a great celebration.
Kaitlyn and Matthew are such a fun couple, the inside jokes these two have for with one another are endless. They made their session so much fun with the laughter they shared. We photographed their engagement session at a private residence in Norfolk overlooking the water. I can't wait for their wedding this June.
Life. Life is great when you live it to it's fullest, and that is what I've done this year. I'm living my best life right now. I'm so grateful for everything that has happened this year. I'm still learning and striving to become the best photographer I can be. You can't rush this process, and it has to be appreciated.
The more I'm behind my camera, the more I appreciate the balance that you must have in this world. I never thought I'd be talking from that perspective, but I'm learning that life is about balance. I've spent the past seven years of my life aggressively chasing my dreams. I've discovered in 2017 that it's okay to relax and smell the roses sometimes. It's needed in order to create your best work.
I'm happier than I've ever been and that's thanks to every client I've photographed this year. It's been an AMAZING year, I've been to some pretty incredible venues and have been able to be apart of so many families memories. It's a such a great experience to be able to document so many memories to share with my clients and the more I do it, the more appreciative I become of the responsibility I hold.
I love all of my clients and the many Friendors I've been blessed to work with this year! Here's to an extraordinary 2018. Live your best life; I'm definitely going to continue to strive to live mine :)
Here are some of my favorite images taken this year as well as some behind the scenes for your entertainment.
Earlier this month I got the chance to travel to New Orleans for some leisure as well as work. If you know me, you know I can't go anywhere or do anything without taking my camera. While in New Orleans I met a beautiful couple who wanted to document their elopement. We walked the city for hours as listened to Katie and Tommy tell me their love story, I also got to hear some history of the beautiful city. Here are some of favorite photos from their session. Enjoy!

I love traveling to photograph my clients. So when Ariana and Bill said they wanted to do their Engagement Session in North Carolina at Duke Gardens I was all in. North Carolina has such beautiful backdrops and i'm excited to share these images from Ariana and Bill's session. I can't wait for their wedding this November.
