Julianna and Kurt’s Virginia Beach engagement session….where do I even start? Aren’t they such a stunning couple? They have been dating since she was 16 years old! How cute is that? When I got their inquiry, she told me that I had photographed her brother’s wedding and I got so excited! See her brother’s past […]

I have been photographing families in the Virginia Beach area for over a decade now! It’s always such a joy when clients return year after year!

A First Landing Engagement Session is always fun! I met Charlie & Christina after being introduced to them by my dear friend Holly (a former incredible wedding coordinator who is coming out of retirement just for their big day!) We clicked instantly and after planning their engagement session we knew First Landing was the perfect […]
The Brock Environmental Center is the perfect spot for family photos! There is tons of space and golden light to capture memories in. You’d never know, but around me were about 50 other photographers-ha! The wide-open space allows plenty of room for everyone! This sweet family had perfectly coordinated outfits. I love the pop of […]
THIS COLUMBIA SOUTH CAROLINA TEMPLE WEDDING WAS PERFECT! Adding South Carolina Temple wedding photography to my portfolio has been so much fun! I enjoy traveling there and photographing couples at this gorgeous temple! It was an overcast day as I pulled up to the South Carolina Temple. It was peaceful and the grounds were beautiful. […]
THIS PHILADELPHIA TEMPLE SUMMER WEDDING WAS SUCH A JOY TO BE APART OF! What a beautiful Philadelphia Temple wedding! Lydia, Larry, and their families were so much fun to get to know. From the our first greeting to the goodbyes in the parking lot, this wedding was full of smiles, celebration and love! Lydia and […]
Philadelphia Temple Bridal Session Daniela and José Miguel did a first look and bridal session at the Philadelphia Temple the week before their wedding. As, I drove to the temple, the forecast showed clouds. Then the sky opened and down came the buckets of rain! They were commuting 2 hours for this. Meanwhile, I immediately […]
The Washington DC LDS Temple closed for renovations on March 3, 2018. Since it was the last time it would be open for two years, it was a very busy day on temple grounds. I had the opportunity to photograph TWO weddings that day! I have never seen the parking lot as full as it was that day! It was a blustery cold day, but Steven and Janette brought their A game!
I first met Diana and Rylan at her BROTHER’S WEDDING in August of 2017. Diana’s mother had an unfortunate fall during the beginning of family pictures and had to be rushed off to the hospital to get stitches on the bridge of her nose. We were all traumatized in the moment but after everything it formed a friendship that I am grateful for.
Heidi and Patrick were sealed in the Washington DC Temple on the most beautiful sunny day! I couldn’t believe how blue the sky was and how the perfectly placed clouds made it look like it was painted! The temple grounds were filled with exotic flowers and it was the perfect backdrop for such a sweet couple.
August weddings at the Washington DC Temple are usually scorching hot! For that reason, I met up with Tona and Doug for a hour before they needed to be at the temple for their sealing. That way it was cooler and the light was better. We were blessed with mid 70’s and a beautiful overcast sky. When there are clouds at the temple, the spires really “pop” and it creates the dreamiest light!
My family and I recently went to a family reunion. We were on the road for 10 days, all over the state of Virginia. I already had a wedding scheduled at the Washington DC Temple so I made the most of it by scheduling 2 engagement sessions along the way. One was for Tona and Doug in Old Town Alexandria! This place is so adorable and we only got to explore a few streets before it started to rain 🙁 I had a blast getting to know them and getting all the details about their DC Temple wedding next month! Isn’t Tona’s hair to die for? So pretty!
I was so excited for this wedding! Not only was it at my favorite place, The Washington D.C. Temple, but I’m so crazy about this fun couple! I knew when I met Kim and Stuart that they were my kind of people! They were so fun at their engagement session and I knew their wedding would be just as awesome as they are! They were sealed as husband and wife on a Wednesday. We had the entire temple grounds to ourselves.
