Valentines Day sessions

Heather & Samuel - Married | Virginia Beach Wedding Photographer

You may recognize these two lovebirds.  I did their engagement photos the weekend prior to their wedding at First Landing State Park.  I have to say that their wedding day was beautiful! They were married on the lawn of the Best Western Plus Oceanfront Hotel, and of course, because it was in front of the Oceanfront boardwalk, they had additional guests.  But regardless, they were married in front of their family and friends.  They were famous a few times when a few beach goers wanted to take selfies with them, as well as some guys wanted to take a selfie with the ladies as we did their version of the Bridesmaid pose.  Such a fun night!!!

Congrats again Heather and Sam and thank you for allowing me to photograph your special day!

Oh How Time Flies By.... | Personal

Tomorrow, I will be celebrating three years with my love, Jake.  Oddly enough, it's also his birthday (He can NEVER say he forgot what day our anniversary is on!).  I met Jake during a rough patch in my life (those that know me personally will know what rough patch I'm talking about...) and meeting him was at the most perfect time.  He has been my sounding board when I needed to vent, my shoulder when I needed one to cry on, and my cheerleader when I needed support.  Like any other normal couple, we have had our ups and downs, but have always stuck by each other no matter what.  We may not be the perfect couple, but we are perfect for each other.

I love you Jake and always will. No matter what.

Baby, It's Just You & Me | Smithfield Couples Photographer

You may recognize Grace and Matt.  They have been long time clients and friends of mine for years.  As most may know, Grace and I are connected through our Hawaii roots, as well as Matt and my fiance both being stationed on the USS Harry S Truman together.  Recently, Matt returned from Army boot camp, and Grace wanted to get some photos of just the two of them.  The rest of the family would be done later.  Since Grace has had some sessions done at Windsor Castle Park, Matt was interested in having their session there. And of course, you know I love shooting there! It's SO worth the drive from Virginia Beach! 

We met up literally within 20 minutes of the sun setting, towards the end of the elusive golden hour.  And I ABSOLUTELY LOVE golden hour.... I mean, LOOK. AT. THAT!!!
