New Orleans Elopement: Katie+Tommy | Will Hawkins Photography

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!

The Tides Inn | Meaghan+Will: Will Hawkins Photography

I love photographing proposals and something about being at The Tides Inn made it even more special! When Will called me last month and said that he was going to propose to his girlfriend I could hear the excitement in his voice. I really enjoyed capturing these moments for this couple. I think the images show just how much they love one another. Check out the images below as well as a slideshow of my favorites.

Vow Editorial Feature | Will Hawkins Photography

I recently had the opportunity to shoot an editorial spread for Vow Magazine. Vow is one of the biggest bridal magazines and resources for brides all over Hampton Roads. I fell in love with wedding photography at the age of 19. From the moment I decided to become a wedding photographer I studied Vow and all of Vendors in it. Over the years I've had the opportunity to meet and work with a lot of the people I studied back in 2011. 

Never knowing years later I would be photographing for the magazine. It's such an amazing moment for me and i'm glad to share it on my blog. No one understands what being featured in this magazine means to me. 

Heres a look at my spread from "Sticking Together"

2016: A Year in Review | Redemption Complete

2016: A Year in Review | Redemption Complete

2016 has been a phenomenal year for me; I’ve been blessed with so many different opportunities this year and couldn’t be more grateful. We’re a few days removed from another New Year, and it’s time again to do my yearly review :) 

My photography and eye have really grown this year in my own opinion. The main reason for that growth was an absolute and sheer determination to focus only on my photography and myself. I feel by tuning out all distractions this year I’ve finally found the direction I want to go with my art. I’m thankful for all of my clients that let me be apart of their special day, I’m so grateful for each and every one of you. I’m thankful for every vendor I got the opportunity to work with this year as well, and everyone that has had a hand in making this year such a success. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Cheers to 2017.

Here are a few outtakes and a few of my favorite images captured throughout the year.

Will Hawkins Photography | Lions Gate Bridge Engagement Session: Samantha+Cameron

I love Fall and everything about it. The year is coming to an end and the colors that we begin to see are amazing. So with all that being said one would imagine how fun it is to photograph couples this time of year.

Samantha and Cameron's engagement session was perfect in it's own way, just like this amazing couple. Samantha and Cameron are so great together, it seems they balance one another so well. It even shows on camera. Here are a few of my favorites from their session, I can't wait to photograph their wedding next Spring at the Women's Club of Portsmouth.
