Cheerful Yellow and Green Wedding | Washington DC LDS Temple Wedding and Chesapeake Noah's Event Venue Reception | Abby + Todd

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!

Summer Washington DC LDS Temple Wedding Photography | Tona + Doug

August weddings at the Washington DC Temple are usually scorching hot!  For that reason, I met up with Tona and Doug for a hour before they needed to be at the temple for their sealing.  That way it was cooler and the light was better.  We were blessed with mid 70's and a beautiful overcast sky.  When there are clouds at the temple, the spires really "pop" and it creates the dreamiest light!

Morgan | Soft and Romantic Virginia Beach Bridal Session

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!

Amy + Joe | First Landing Park Virginia Beach Engagement Session

I got a message on instagram back in the early spring.  The woman looked so familiar from her profile picture, but it wasn't until we were on the phone together that we were able to make the connection!  Amy and I used to go to the same class at the gym.  She remembered me saying I was a photographer and found me through our boot camp teacher on instagram.  Thank goodness for online connections because this couple (Amy and Joe) are incredible!

Martha + Joey | Bristol Train Station Engagement Session

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!

Kaitlin + John | Virginia Beach Oceanfront Engagement Session

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!

Tona + Doug | Old Town Alexandria Engagement Session

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!

Virginia Beach Surprise Proposal | North End Virginia Beach

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!
