Morgan and Matthew got married on Halloween! Everything about this day was so unique and customized to them! They chose to have a micro wedding at The Historic Cavalier Hotel & Beach Club.

The Sheraton Virginia Beach Oceanfront was the perfect location for Amy and Joe’s wedding!  They were surrounded by so many loving friends and family members.

They met at James Madison University at a fraternity/sorority mixer. Kaitlin and John were introduced through mutual friends. They were inseparable the whole night! The following day they went up to the mountains together and the rest was history! They dated a few more years throughout college.  John graduated from JMU a year earlier than Kaitlin. He began his career in another city while she finished school.   Long distance means they would alternate visiting each other every weekend.  Their four hour roundtrip drives and accompanying visits made their relationship that much stronger!

Daniel met Jessica, at their church’s singles ward, six long years ago.  She was successfully finishing up the last two years of her dental hygiene degree in Richmond.  She caught many of the single guys’ attention, including Daniel, for many reasons.  In the words of Daniel, “She was committed to her faith, kind to everyone, fiercely loyal to her friends and family, and absolutely gorgeous!”

I have been dying to share this bridal session!  Morgan and Cody were married on Saturday so now I can!  This actually is Morgan’s reception dress.  She chose to do a bridal session in it because she really wanted a beach session and this one was much better for the high temperatures and location she chose.  We had the best time getting to know one another and chatting about all things WEDDING!    Morgan you are BREATHTAKING!  I am so thankful you chose me to document such a special time in your life!  
PS:  Morgan made her own bouquet and did her own makeup for this session!  Amazing!

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!

Ryan contacted be back in January to schedule a surprise proposal for his beautiful girlfriend, Anna Holland.  We crafted up a secret plan to capture him proposing at the Virginia Beach oceanfront during their weekend getaway trip to the Patriotic Festival.  Can I just stop for a minute and give him a fist bump for being so prepared and excited enough to hire a photographer to capture it all?  What a catch!

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.

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.
