VA Beach Oceanfront Engagements

One of the main purposes of an engagement session is to capture the unique relationship between the soon-to-be bride and groom as it is right now during this special season of their lives together. So I always strive to capture the authentic dynamic between each of my couples, because each couple is a little different. But Kathleen and Alan made it so easy for me to capture their fun, loving and easy-going relationship! They even brought some bubbles to use for the shoot to really show off their fun and goofy side! I don’t think I’ve ever laughed and smiled so much during a shoot. I’m thinking that that is just the effect that these two have on people!

The Importance of Sunset Portraits

With wedding season on the horizon, I’ve started the process of discussing timeline and details with my 2017 brides. And one of the conversations I always start early on in the process is that of scheduling in time for sunset portraits on the wedding day. For the brides that are getting married between May and October, that often means having to step out of the reception for these photos. But let me tell you the reasons why it is so worth it!
