Brittney & Tim were so fun to hang out with at the Colonial Heritage Club in Williamsburg Virginia!  I was so glad to finally get to know them!  And I really felt like I had known these two forever after meeting them!  Brittney is fun and has a great laugh, and THE most AMAZING eyes!!!  Seriously!  They are sometimes green and sometimes blue and absolutely piercing!!  Tim is a really cool and laid back guy…and adores Brittney!!  I am so exited for their spring wedding!!  I know we are going to have the best time!!

Nicole & Eric are such a fun couple and Jay and I had a BLAST at their Mariner’s Museum wedding in Newport News Virginia!  I feel like I always say this about my couples…but I am truly so lucky that I get to work for such amazing people!!  When I met with them for the first time, we all just hit it off, right away!  I love the way they make each other laugh…and the way that Eric barely notices that anyone else is around when Nicole is in the room!  Their first look was so sweet and full of emotion…and the rest of the day was, too!  Nicole is a gorgeous woman with the most amazing eyes and she looked stunning in her gown!  They had initially planned to have an outdoor wedding, but it was going to be super cold by the time their ceremony happened so they opted to move it inside the museum!  We still wanted to do photos outside and luckily, Nicole’s Grandma let her borrow her fur stoal for the wedding…and that kept her nice an warm!  I loved all the little fall touches they had at their reception, too…from the pinecones that the guests found their names on, to the fall flowers that were on all the tables.  They also had the most amazing cake table, full of bountiful sweets and treats for their guests!  Special thanks to Veronica from VIBEvents Group, LLC. for recommending me to Nicole and Eric!  You really made this day beautiful for them!!  XOXO!

If you have hired me to shoot a wedding, odds are you have met Megan!  She is one of my right hands on a wedding day!  And I have been honored to be a part of her and Freddy lives since they were engaged!  This past year they had their first child, Grant…and he has got to be one of the most adorable little guys I have ever met!  Even though he had a double ear infection during our session at the Noland Trail in Newport News, Virginia, he was a super easy-going baby…full of smiles!  It has been so fun watching Megan and Freddy become parents…and they are absolutely amazing!  I can’t wait to watch Grant grow up!!  Won’t be long before he is running, now!!  XOXO you two!!  Love you all!!!

I had the BEST time meeting Marley and her beautiful family at Red Wing Park, in Virginia Beach Virginia, last week for our Family session!  And I was so excited when Ben brought his basketball out of the car!  I immediately knew we were going to have a blast!  Marley and Tim were awesome and even though I may have given Tim the zika virus…he was a total trooper!!  McKenna & Maura were so fun to work with and are such beautiful and smart young women!  Ben can’t possibly make a serious face…which is exactly what I was hoping for…and he is such a sweet kid!!  Thank you all for the FUN and for choosing me to document this time in your lives!!  I had a BLAST!!!  XOXO!
