Virginia Beach Wedding | Alex & Tate

Engagement sessions are huge parts of my business and I love doing them, but occasionally because of my couples lives and jobs we just don’t get to do them. When Alex & Tate booked me, Alex was leaving for Top Gun aviation school we had a tiny window to do engagements before he would be […]

If you’ve been around for longer than fifteen minutes, it should come as no surprise that the mountains are not my first choice for a destination vacation but after celebrating at Wintergreen with Kelli and Mike I’m rethinking it!!

It’s SO important to take family pictures, but let’s be honest…as photographers we are sometimes the worst people to do it. Seriously, we always try to do it ourselves and rarely end up in the pictures!!! When Maria contacted me she wanted pictures done in Virginia Beach before they took new orders since they are […]

Every once in a awhile a wedding day throws us the weather trifecta: rain, sun, clouds. It’s always so bizarre when it happens because as you go through images it seems like the day happened over a weekend versus just a few hours! That’s the case with this Barren Ridge Vineyard wedding! Erin and Brian […]

Virginia Beach Engagements | Madison & Tommy

In the fall I sat down at Starbucks across from these two and Madison pulled out her Pinterest board. As she scrolled up and showed me all the beach things that were inspiring her, she had unknowingly pinned images of MINE! I finally laughed and said “These are my pictures!!” and she had no clue!!
