Adam & Kevin’s Sunset Crest Manor Wedding

It was such a privilege to capture Adam & Kevin’s wedding. Upon arrival to the Sunset Crest Manor, I knew it was going to be a beautiful day. The mansion was so lovely and the perfect getting ready location. The ceremony would be happening outside, under a tent, next to a gorgeous barn. What a location! As Adam and Kevin put the finishing touches on their suspenders, ties, and boutonnieres, I could feel excitement building for the first look. When these two saw each other for the first time, all ready to finally get married, the tears started flowing! Such a beautiful moment, knowing that their wedding day had finally arrived!

During family + bridal party portraits, I really got a sense of how important family and friends are to Adam and Kevin. There was so much love between them and their loved ones! The ceremony following was just lovely! It was great to see how much love and support they had as they were finally LEGALLY married!! Having always been a massive supporter of equality, being apart of their day was a huge honor! I want to give a big thank you to Kathy Angel for being an AWESOME second shooter! She was SO helpful and fun to work with, and you will see some of her shots in this blog post!

Grace & Mark’s Wedding

Grace and Mark are some of the few great high school sweethearts out there. You could just tell how excited both of them were to finally be getting married. They savored every moment of the day. They had been waiting a long time for this day, and they were not about to rush it! As the best man said during his speech, referring to an old saying: “Marriage has 3 rings: the engagement ring, the wedding ring, and the suffering,” But for Grace and Mark he revised it to “The Engagement ring, the wedding ring, and the savoring.” Loved that quote!

Luckily, we had beautiful weather on Grace and Mark’s day. The rain has been so constant here in Virginia, we were checking the weather up until the last minute! Fortunately we didn’t have any rain! We decided to do portraits at a lovely park just around the corner from their church. After portraits we had some time to relax before the reception, and it really energized everyone up for the rest of the night! There were only about 80 guests at the wedding, but almost all of them stayed until 11pm for the bubble exit! What a party!

Grace and Mark, I had a great time working with you guys, and hope you’re having a fantastic start to your marriage! Enjoy these photos! A big thank you to Melodie Ann Photography for the photos of the groomsmen getting ready, and a few other shots!

Susan & Carter’s Malibu Engagement

You guys, I still can’t believe I got to shoot an engagement shoot in California. There I was, planning a visit to a friend of mine who moved to LA since graduation from the University of Mary Washington. About a month before my trip, Susan emailed me saying that she and Carter wouldn’t be able to make it back to VA in time for an engagement shoot. Knowing they lived in California, I figured it would at least make sense to see if they lived near LA. Not only do they live near LA, but they live in the SAME TOWN as my friend, less than one mile away from each other! How crazy is that!? So of course, upon realizing this crazy insane luck, we immediately began planning a shoot during my visit! I could not be more grateful to have the amazing opportunity to shoot in such a beautiful location as El Matador State Beach in Malibu. And most of all I couldn’t have been more grateful to have clients like Susan and Carter. They were the ideal clients in every way. Not only were they cool enough to pick me up and drive me through the mountains to this incredible location, but their enthusiasm was contagious, and their love shone through in every photo. It’s so amazing to work with clients who are so excited about their photos; it was an absolute dream! They were both so sweet, easy going, and wanted whatever it took to get incredible images! Even though the waves were crashing on us, I think the photos were worth it! I’m so excited to share these with you; the cliffs, the golden light, the beach…it was all just perfect. Without further adieu, enjoy!

Monica & Chris Engagement

So excited to share with you Monica & Chris’ engagement photos! I’m so glad this shoot worked out; as we had a rain scare and I wasn’t going to be in the area that long. Since Monica & Chris live in Virginia Beach, and I grew up in Williamsburg, we figured I would come do their engagement shoot on a weekend I was visiting my family. We scheduled the shoot, and then as luck would have it, turned out that there was going to be a massive thunderstorm. So we quickly rescheduled for the next morning; a sunrise shoot. I’ve been wanting to do one of these, but who wants to get up at the crack of dawn!!?? These two were such AMAZING sports meeting me at 5:15 AM (SOOOO EARLY!!!), but I think it was worth it!! We went for the classic Virginia Beach board walk, and while it wasn’t crowded at all, surfers definitely were out! The early morning light was delightful, and I could not be more pleased with how these came out! They brought their adorable puppy, Kyle, and he was hilarious. One second he was yawning and lounging, and the next he was digging up sand and jumping around. So funny! Monica & Kyle were a joy to work with; they were easygoing, relaxed, and not afraid to be themselves! Love working with clients like them! Enjoy these stunning engagement images :)
