Virginia Beach Resort & Hotel Center | Virginia Beach Wedding | Jake & Renee


When I sit down to write this post there are so many things I want to tell you about this day and yet no words do it justice. Well maybe one, JOY. From Renee radiating it to Jake’s father gushing about Jake, joy was all over the place this gorgeous Saturday. I think living here in Virginia Beach I forget that SO many people make it a destination and vacation spot for themselves! That was so fun about this day, Jake & Renee live a few hours from the beach and when choosing spots for their wedding knew they wanted to be married by the sea. For an August day, you couldn’t have asked for anything better. Sure it was warm but there was an incredible strong breeze coming off the water that cooled the guests and moved Renee’s veil just right. After introductions and dances, we snuck back outside for sunset portraits! Love that they made time for this!

    Absolutely stunning! I LOVED the bride and groom portraits

  2. I like all of the pictures! How do I order prints? I have no printer attached at this time. I would several of your pictures you’ve printed in either 4×6 or 5×7 size. I am the grandmother and would like good prints to display along with my grandson’s wedding pictures. Thank you
