First Landing State Park | Virginia Engagement | Candice + John

First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach was the perfect backdrop this time of year for an engagement session with Candice + John. They were wearing the perfect palette for a beach setting and complimented each other nicely. Like most engagement sessions, this is usually the first time a couple has been professionally photographed. Candice + John were naturals. They were relaxed and took direction well. They made my job super easy. Plus, they make one great looking couple, right?! Oh, and if you are wondering where Candice got those super cute, pink pants!? Old Navy! Yes, apparently the commercials really do work! “I’m gonna get those pants!”

 

Copper + Green Industrial Modern Wedding Inspiration | Styled Shoot

I had the honor of photographing this gorgeous industrial modern styled shoot for Luxe & Lune Couture Events. It was recently featured on 100 Layer Cake (check that post out here) and am so excited to finally share these on here! This was set up at Work Release, a new and intimate venue in downtown Norfolk. It is an awesome blank space you can make your own. Perfect for a rehearsal dinner, intimate wedding reception or a fabulous dinner party.

I love modern touches and industrial finishings. Match made in heaven. Add in blush and copper tones with gray and pops of green and you have one eye-catching combo. My absolute favorite part of this shoot was the custom place cards. Hand written Edison bulbs? Yes, please! All the vendors involved did an amazing job and are listed at the end of the post. Now go start planning your next party or dinner!

Richmond, Virginia Engagement | Meghann + Jon

I love traveling. Even if that only means an hour and a half up the interstate. This was my first time shooting in Richmond and am so glad Meghann + Jon invited me up to photograph their engagement session there. The Shockoe Bottom district offers a lot of variety between the canal walk, historic building facades and public art. This is just one of many great locations that Richmond has to offer. Will be back up there soon for a bridal session, but for now, enjoy a sampling from Meghann + Jon’s engagement session. I am really looking forward to photographing these two on their wedding day at the gorgeous Trump Winery!

 

Nikki + Steve | Gender Reveal | Virginia Beach, Virginia

I don’t receive inquiries much for maternity but when Nikki of House of Flourish emailed me asking if I would consider doing a mini gender reveal session of course I said yes! Happy to capture this for them so they are able to share their good news with their friends and family. Congratulations Nikki + Steve!

Richmond, Virginia | Film

Last fall, my bestie, Melissa, flew over from California for a visit. One of the days, while she was here, we drove up to Richmond for a day trip. I challenged myself to only take my film camera that day. We visited Maymont, the Carytown district and Hollywood Cemetery. It was fun to have a stay-cation and explore the region I live in. Maymont was beautiful and I hope to go back someday to photograph and engagement session. Hint, hint!
