Emily and Anthony really wanted a wedding that reflected them!  So they decided that a Brunch wedding at the Women’s Club of Portsmouth, was the best option to reflect their interests and personalities.  Emily and Anthony have known one another since Middle School!!  They even went to Senior prom together, but just as friends.  It wasn’t until after high school that they realized their was more between the two of them.  Anthony is a Middle school teacher and Emily just got her degree in Nursing.  These two are such a sweet and adorable couple!  I loved shooting their wedding and all the amazing details they had.  From Chicken and Waffles from Catering Concepts to biscuits that Emily’s Mom baked for all of the guests, to the very hard Crossword puzzle they made, every detail was perfect and just right for their wedding!   Jay and I had a great time getting to know their Families and it was such an honor to be part of such an amazing day!  Oh, and Anthony’s Brother…gave one of the BEST speeches I have ever heard!!  Thank you all for choosing us to be a part of such a great day!

  • Elizabeth Jones - Of all the many weddings I have attended, Emily & Anthony’s is by far the most classic. The day and all the special ‘little extras definitely bespoke-“Emily” as I am sure “Anthony” personalities. They represent, to me, a match ‘made in heaven’.
    Love to the special couple.ReplyCancel

Natalie is a Senior at Norfolk Christian this year and is the captain of the Volleyball team.  She is smart, athletic and gorgeous!!  I had a great time getting to know her in East Beach Virginia.  We walked around and chased the pretty light ending the session on the beach!  While she isn’t quite sure where she wants to go to school next year, she thinks she might like to be a Nurse when she grows up.  I think that whatever Natalie decides to do, she will be great at!!  It was such an honor to capture her right before she started her Senior year.  I know she is going to have a great volleyball season and a fun Senior year!!  Thanks for choosing me Natalie!  It was wonderful to meet you!!

I have known this Family for many years!  Truman used to play soccer with their oldest Son and I absolutely ADORE them all!!  Molly and Jeff are both hysterical, and their kids are just awesome…fully of energy and personality!  When Jeff contacted me about shooting a Family portrait session for them in Chick’s Beach in Virginia Beach Virgina, for their 13th Wedding Anniversary…I was SO EXCITED!!!  I mean, they are obviously all gorgeous…but more than that, they are all so much fun!  We started off with some “posed” shots, but then I just told them to have fun and run around…which was definitely my favorite part of the session!  Thanks for letting me capture this time in your lives, Molly and Jeff and Congratulations on 13 years!!  Here’s to MANY more!!  XOXO!!

Amber and Alex were Married at the Freemason Inn in Norfolk Virginia on a rainy evening in August.  Amber and Alex are both in the Navy and have recently relocated to California!  They drove cross country right after the wedding!  On their wedding day it rained buckets and they had planned to have the Ceremony in the courtyard at the Inn.  They never got worried about it for one minute and right before the wedding, the rain stopped and the courtyard dried up!  It was perfect!  Amber’s Brother was their Officiant and really did a great job!  The rain held off long enough for us to take advantage of the beautiful streets of downtown Norfolk.  Omar’s Carriage House did an amazing job making the Inn look exactly how Amber wanted it and the food was delicious!  I was so thrilled to be a part of their beginning!  Can’t wait to see what’s in store for them!

I LOVE this Family!  I have known them for several years, coached their Daughter in soccer, photographed Lee’s retirement from his 30 years of service in the Navy, and I love their most adorable red-headed Granddaughter, Bailey!  When Cheryl contacted me, she said they would like to bring some of their favorite things for the shoot, at Monkey Bottom park in Norfolk Virginia!  I loved the idea, so everyone brought something they love!  Brandon (Lee’s oldest Son) brought his favorite duck hunting stuff and some great teeth!  Jeremy brought a soccer ball, and Emily brought her books!  I loved that Bailey wanted to help Dad with his guns and Mom with her shopping bags!   It was so great to see them all again!  I always love catching up and seeing how much everyone has grown!  Thanks for continuing to let me photograph you all!  It makes my day!!  XOXO!
