First Landing State Park Engagement Photography Session

Engagement sessions are my absolute favorite!  I have such a blast getting to know my couples during this time.  It’s a chance to get comfortable with each other and gives us the opportunity to talk about the wedding day.

I had the best time with Joyce Anne and Mike at their First Landing State Park Engagement Session!  I love engagement sessions because I get to know the couple and talk all about how they fell in love and what they like to do together.  

You won’t want to miss hilarious moments and find out how Mike intercepted an arranged greek marriage. hahah!

There I was….photographing a wedding at the Washington DC Temple and waiting for the couple to exit….
The sweetest blonde girl came up to me and told me she was engaged and asked for a business card.  We had a great time chatting and she went on to tell me that she was my previous  bride’s roommate!

Martha and Joey are the sweetest couple ever!  They live all the way out in Bristol, VA.  And the fun thing about Bristol is that it splits the states of Virginia and Tennessee.  There is a sign that crosses State Street that shows the dividing line. How cool is that!?  It was pretty much like A Walk to Remember when Landon crosses off one of Jamie’s bucket list items off by standing in two places at once.  WATCH THAT CLIP HERE.  If only there wasn’t traffic and we were really able to do that. haha!

SO. MUCH. FUN!  That is how I would describe my time with Kaitlin and John at their Virginia Beach Oceanfront engagement session.  We laughed hysterically the entire time!  Couples like this fill my heart with so much joy!   What I loved even more, was having the opportunity to work alongside my husband, Justin, of Gibby Visuals.   We love working together and feel like we give our clients the best experience when our photo and video services are combined!

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 first met Sonya back in 2013 when I photographed her older sister’s wedding.  Flash forward 4 years later and she emailed me about photographing her own wedding!  I loved working with their family so of course I was excited when she contacted me.
