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.

Will Hawkins | Vow Bride Magazine Feature: Chan+Chris

This morning I got a delivery at my door. To my surprise it was the latest edition of Vow Bride. It's really a beautiful magazine and well thought out. If you're planning a wedding I urge you to pick a copy up. 

 If you've been following me this wedding season I photographed Chan and Chris's Chrysler Museum Wedding this past spring, it was truly a beautiful wedding with some amazing vendors. I was thrilled when Vow wanted to highlight it in their latest magazine. I'm really happy to see my clients get their big day featured for the world to see. Congratulations Chan+Chris, you guys deserve it! Thanks to the many Vendors involved as well that made this possible. And many Thanks to Vow!!

Will Hawkins | Delfosse Vineyards Wedding: Amanda+Sean

Destination Weddings are always fun for me. I get to travel outside of Virginia Beach and do one of my favorite activities, photographing a couple on their wedding day. Amanda and Sean's Wedding day was far from the norm. I mean I was literally in a mountain valley at Delfosse Vineyards. Cool right? 

I had a really great time with these two. Amanda has so much personality and spunk, while Sean has a really cool laid back demeanor. They fit so well together and made my job so easy. I couldn't be more thankful to these two for allowing me to document their day. 

Congrats you two and thanks again!

Will Hawkins | Downtown Norfolk Engagement Session: Linda+Jake

Summer is always a nice time to do engagement photos. I really enjoy being outside with couples in the warm weather documenting their love before their big day. Linda and Jake chose Downtown Norfolk as the backdrop for their engagement photos because of the many walks they take together through Pagoda Gardens during the summer nights. I can't wait to photograph their wedding next month at the Sheraton Oceanfront. Here are a few of my favorites from our session.

Sandie and Sean were a very a fun couple to photograph. They made my job extremely easy with the way they love one another. I really enjoyed spending my Saturday with them in Downtown Smithfield. Here are some photos from their session. I can't wait to photograph their wedding in May at the Botanical Gardens.
