Weddings can be stressful! Rest assured, we are known for our organization and efficiency. We help couples, along with their planners, create a timeline that allows for all the most important moments to be documented. If things go off plan, we are flexible and quick on our feet to help problem solve and think outside the box. Our main goal is to keep you stress free and happy throughout the entire day. We will laugh, smile and have fun together!
We know this is a day you’ve dreamed of! Our goal is to focus on the love you two share and the little moments in between. We strive to build a relationship with you to find out what makes your love story unique and what is most important to you. This is your day and we want it to reflect that!
Our images don’t follow trends and won’t go out of style. From the dress to the tiniest details, we will photograph your day to reflect it as you planned it--in an even more enhanced beautiful version.
Weddings at The Historic Cavalier Hotel are one of a kind! The unique architecture, beautiful gardens and styled indoor spaces offer a variety of ceremony options. This iconic Virginia Beach location paired with ocean views is the perfect spot for timeless love!
"Emily embodies all of the qualities of a great photographer. She's lively, organized, thorough, communicative, responsive, fun, and joyful. Her work is stunning and perfectly captured our special day!"
Gracie and Brent Butler
"Emily is AMAZING! She listened to every last detail of exactly what we were looking for, and delivered that (and more!!) for both our engagement shoot and our wedding. She captured our day so perfectly and got us our pictures lightening speed. "
Joyce Anne Koubaroulis
"Emily made us feel so comfortable from the first time we met her for our engagement photo session. Emily and her husband Justin (Gibby Visuals - video) came with us to our destination wedding in the Bahamas last month. They were incredible."
"I could not be happier with my experience with Emily Gibby Photography. I would recommend her 100%. From the beginning, communicating with her was so simple. She responded within 12 hours when I contacted her for a quote, and any time I had a question, she got back to me very quickly. "
Though I primarily shoot in the coastal Virginia area, I also LOVE to travel! We have photographed weddings all across the United States and have done several international destination weddings. We have passports and are ready to travel!
We aim to deliver about 100 images per hour in a beautiful online gallery (Ask to see a full gallery, and you’ll see that we always deliver more! ). You can download, share and order prints all through your own customized gallery.
Yes! All of my wedding packages except for one include a complimentary engagement session. It’s a great time to get comfortable in front of the camera and get to know each other. They are some of my favorite sessions to photograph!
Ask to see a full gallery from a wedding--not just a styled shoot! You will be with your photographer more than anyone on your wedding day. Make sure you go with someone who is licensed/insured along with being professional, positive and flexible! A good personality doesn’t hurt either ;)
My wedding contract officially says 8 weeks, but let’s just say I’m known for a very quick turnaround ;)
When you are ready to lock in your date you will accept a quote, sign an agreement and make a 50% non-refundable retainer payment.
After I have carefully edited your wedding images, they will be delivered to you in a private online gallery. You will have access to download, share and order prints all through your gallery link. Ask to see a sample. I’m happy to share!
A bridal session is a photo session centered around the bride (sans groom) in her wedding dress that takes place prior to the wedding day either at a location of the bride's choice or at the venue. Deciding on whether or not to schedule a bridal session is a matter of personal preference. It is a great opportunity to align with your hair & makeup trial
Wedding photography packages start at $3995. Please inquire for detailed pricing, packages & availability.
