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 […]
A Pleasure House Point Photography Session is perfect in so many ways! This location is the perfect backdrop for photo sessions. The neutral colors and natural elements make outfits pop! This sweet family has been with me for several years! I love seeing them from year to year. They always have the best outfits with the perfect […]
This beautiful family is a former wedding client of Gibby Visuals. With a growing family, they reached about having a maternity session at the Delta Bayfront Hotel in Virginia Beach. If you haven’t been to this resort, you should definitely check it out. It’s away from the hustle and bustle of the oceanfront but still […]
Spring is such the perfect time of year for a Red Wing Park family photos! This sweet family has been with been with me for a few years now and we did this session before their big move across country. As always, their outfits are perfection! Gone are the days of “matchy matchy” outfits. Subtle […]
Caitlin + Sean A Perfect Setting for an Engagement Session First Landing State Park is the perfect setting for a summer engagement photography session. It has lavish green trees, tall grasses, hidden paths and private beaches! Caitlin and Sean love the outdoors so this location was perfect for them! When we first arrived we started […]
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!
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.
Brittany and Jared met while working at the same elementary school with young children. A friendship at work, soon turned to text messages, long phone calls and even the occasional get together. They bonded over coffee, religion and board games! After a year-long friendship, the next summer Jared had plans to go on a vacation. During his trip, it hit him, HE MISSED BRITTANY!
Krystal and Paul….where do I even start with these two!? They are amazing and oh so funny! I met up with them at the beautiful Norfolk Botanical Gardens. After hearing how Paul, proposed, it makes total sense why they wanted to do their engagement session here.
