I am always excited when the Cole’s book their yearly photo session.  They are such fun bunch to hang out with.  Donna and Brian have a great sense of humor and keep me laughing throughout the session.  Taylor has quickly grown into a beautiful young woman, and Hunter is always full of energy and looking for great places to jump from.  This year it was a little different, because we were joined by Brian’s brother, Jamie’s family, too.  From the moment they got there I knew I was going to love this group too.  Jamie and Carol’s two daughter’s love to have their picture taken, and were immediately ready to go!  Thanks everyone for pushing through the stressful looking weather forecast for a great session.

 When I met with Brooklyn and Brett back in January, I instantly knew I was going to adore them.  They are honestly perfect for each other.  They are so comfortable together and hanging out with them is so much fun!   They are both full of laughter.  And not to mention, gorgeous.   (Holy eyes on these two)!   Also they live very close to me, and I am definitely going to have to take Brooklyn up on her offer to borrow her slammin shoes!   The only down side is that Brett loves the Jets and as a Steeler fan we have a healthy rivalry about football.   🙂   

We went to the Zen garden and beach and really had a great time.   We thought we might get rained on, but took a chance and went anyway, which definitely paid off.  Not only did we have amazing light, but no one was on the beach!  We had it all to ourselves.  My only regret was that I didn’t get to go to the best Mexican restaurant in our part of the world,  Azteca with them afterwards for dinner (definitely next time!!)

Wedding Photography Half Moone Cruise Terminal Norfolk Va.  I honestly can not say enough how much I adore Sara & John.  I met them both at a wedding they were part of in 2010, and thought they were such an adorable couple.  So I was thrilled when they called me to be their wedding photographer at the Half Moone Cruise Terminal Norfolk Va.    Sara & John are full of fun, smiles and love for one another.   They have been together since high school, and you can tell they are best friends, as well as, head over heels in love.  They both love gardening, soccer and dancing.  In fact, John is a professional dipper.  🙂   They even traveled to South Africa to watch the world cup.    I could not be more honored to be a part of their special day at the Half Moone Cruise Terminal Norfolk Va.   Thanks for all the great fun and laughs, you two…without further ado…Sara & John’s wedding Half Moone Cruise Terminal Norfolk,Va …

Sara’s dress was a perfect fit, and she was stunning in it!
