Virginia Beach Wedding Photographer

When I first met Emily and Christian I instantly knew it was a match made in heaven! He is completely enamored by her and it was so much fun to capture it on their wedding day.  Besides meeting this amazing couple, I was able to shoot their incredible wedding at the beautiful San Diego Temple.   They had the most unique wedding theme, EVER!  It was a little bit country with mixes of coral, yellow and camouflage!  Yes, you heard that right--CAMOFLAUGE!  And it was awesome!  It fit their personalities perfectly and it was  fun to capture.   Please enjoy a sampling of their fabulous wedding day with a few thoughts in between photos and  list of vendors at the end.

We also stopped a yellow flower field to add variety to their portraits.  The backdrop and natural setting seemed to fit perfectly with their wedding theme!

Here are a few pictures of their invitation and bridal details.  Since I live in Virginia, I wasn't able to do their engagements until the week of the wedding, but I loved their adorable pictures where Christian is wearing a John Deere hat!
