Sandbridge family photography sessions are some of my favorites! I met this family at Little Island Park during their family vacation. It was extremely windy and cloudy but we had some good laughs and they were such troopers!

Brittany and Jared were a dream to work with. From the moment I sat down with them, at their consultation, I wanted them to book me so badly. More than love, they have such a sweet friendship at the foundation of their relationship. I had the chance to get to know them better at their Engagement Session and also through questionnaires that I sent out before the big day. Here is what they had to say!
I was so excited for Morgan and Cody's nautical wedding at The Attic at Waterman's on the Virginia Beach Oceanfront from our first email interaction. Morgan was so enthusiastic about everything and it was contagious. When I finally met her, at her BRIDAL SESSION, her bubbly personality won me over. She's gorgeous inside and out. That's my kind of bride!
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!

Doing LDS Baptism Photos is one of my favorite types of photoshoots. I love to see these children get all dressed up and be excited for such a big moment in their lives. My own daughter is getting baptized this year and I am so excited about it! Daxton's mom is a good friend of mine and we had a great time walking about the beach together. Enjoy a few photos from his session!
This sweet girl celebrated her 8th birthday by having baptism photos done with me at the beach. She looked stunning in her cream colored maxi dress!
We met Zach back in the Fall at another WEDDING. He was one of groomsmen :) When he contacted us about photography and videography services we were so thrilled! We knew he would be fun and we would also get to see some of our favorite people from the previous wedding! Over several months we interacted through email. Get this: Zach took the reigns of wedding planning while Julie was on deployment. How amazing is that? Not too many guys would do that! We finally had the opportunity to meet his sweet Julie the day before their wedding since they reside in San Diego, CA. What a joy it was to spend the day with them! They were so laid back and everything was simply amazing! Enjoy a sampling of their navy, coral and ivory beach wedding that took place at Shifting Sands.
Yes, you read that right.....a DOUBLE SURPRISE PROPOSAL! I'll get to that in a minute, but first let me say that this has to be one of the sweetest proposals that I have ever photographed! Patrick and Rossmary are from Connecticut and were traveling down to Virginia Beach for a family vacation. Little did Rosemary know, but Patrick had hired me to document their surprise proposal! Patrick found me on Instagram on a Sunday night and we carefully crafted a perfect plan for Monday evening. In less than 24 hours we had a location, time and strategy! I dropped of a wireless microphone with instructions on how to use it to his hotel before they arrived in Virginia Beach. We shared numerous text messages and made sure that everything would go smoothly.
My husband (who is my VIDEO partner) and I captured the entire proposal in photos and video/audio without Rossmary even knowing! After proposing to Rossmary, Patrick also proposed to her daughter! CUE THE TEARS! It was so incredibly sweet. Not only did he make this day special for Rossmary, but he went out of his way to make her daughter feel loved as well. What a guy, right!??? I feel so lucky to have been able to witness this event. I am so happy for them and wish them nothing but happiness as a new family of three! :)
Patrick bought Rossmary's daughter a special doggy purse and beautiful gold ring with a pink flower on it. It was so sweet!
