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 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 […]
The LDS Philadelphia Temple shines bright in the City of Brotherly Love! I had the pleasure of photographing Simmandi and Kyle’s temple sealing on a VERY hot July day! The temps reached the mid 90s and their friends and family stuck it out for the happy couple!
When Abby’s mother first reached out to me about photographing her daughter’s wedding we immediately had so many connections. I have known Abby’s grandparents for years and two of my past brides (Shelby and Kim) referred them to me. I loved seeing all the friendly faces at the Washington DC Temple and at the Chesapeake Noah’s Event Venue!
I spent a BEAUTIFUL spring day at the Washington DC Temple with Emily, Cristian and all of their closest family and friends. The temple was very busy on this day with weddings. We quickly did all of their family portraits near the front temple doors to allow extra time for Emily and Crisitian’s couple’s portraits. They will traveled one hour to Frederick, MD for their same day wedding reception. They had an intimate and small DIY reception at the The Tea Room at Gambrill State Park.
Kim and Stuart’s Washington D.C. LDS Temple post was so full of gorgeousness that I knew their reception would need its own space on my blog. Temple Wedding Fact: There are 155+ operating temples for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints throughout the world. Some regions have many within a short distance, while other areas require members to travel long distances to attend. The state of Virginia does not have a temple, so when members of the church are looking to get married (or sealed as they call it) they travel to The Washington D.C Temple in Kensington, MD. It is 3.5-4 hour drive from Virginia Beach depending on traffic. Once it even took me 8 hours to get home because I-95 was a parking lot–yikes!
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.
