During their freshman year of high school, Shelby and Justin were on the marching band together.  At the time, she was 5'4 and he was 5'2 and a mere 74 lbs (like most developing freshman guys are! haha)  However, the first time she saw him she was determined to date him!  She even sent her best friends on a conquest to let him know how interested she was!  Well, it worked!  She got her man and they started to date.  They have been together for close to 10 years.....10 YEARS!  How incredible is that?  They are the epitome of the term high-school sweethearts!  
I have known Shelby's family forever and I was honored when they asked me to be their wedding photographer.  They are such a beautiful couple.  I always tell Shelby that she looks exactly like the gorgeous Tiffani Amber Thiessen aka:  Kelly Kapowski on Saved by the Bell (one of my favorite shows growing up--haha!)   
Spending the evening with Justin and Shelby was such a blast!  The amount of love and comfort they have for one another is so apparent.  They truly are the best of friends, which makes the ideal couple in my book!   One of their favorite places to go to is the beach-- so naturally we ended up with romantic portraits at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.  I had such a blast with them and I cannot wait until their October wedding!  It is going to be absolutely perfect!!!!  :) 
I had the most difficult time choosing what portraits to showcase because I loved so many of them.  Enjoy some of their session below.
