Mark & Meghan Wedding Slideshow Half Moon, Norfolk Virginia | Wedding Photography

Mark & Meghan put together an awesome wedding for themselves and a “few” of their closest family & friends. We played a fly on the wall and took a few shots, listened to some sweet tunes, and enjoyed seeing a brand new couple start out on the right foot into a new life together. Check out the slideshow and you’ll see what I mean!

Engagement Session | Britt and Da Niel | Viriginia Wedding Photographer

Ah…it’s Tuesday afternoon and love is in the air.  We just love the fact that we get to document people’s lives through photography.  Britt and Da Niel are on the path to heading to the alter and they have entrusted us with their memories.  On a Friday afternoon, we got to stroll around the beautiful downtown Norfolk are captured some awesome urban and historic areas with this beautiful engaged couple!  We love the chance to do on location photography, especial outdoor photography when the weather is as beautiful as the couple that we are shooting. Here they are…Britt and Da Niel…the engagement session    

Wedding George Mason University – Kevin & Molly | Wedding Photography

You just can’t beat a Christmas wedding! The colors and lights were spectacular and for some reason the chill in the air along with the snowflakes just seemed “right”. Molly & Kevin snuggled up outside for a few shots in downtown Fairfax before strolling around the cozy Mason Inn. Our photobooth had the guests laughing all night but the jello cake topper, well, frankly took the cake! Congratulations Molly & Kevin!

Aftershoot Norfolk Downtown & Beach – Mario & Meredith | Couples Lifestyle Photography

We had the joy of photographing Mario & Meredith’s wedding a few weeks ago and had them join us again for an aftershoot.  Meredith put her wedding dress back on and Mario found a sharp looking suit and we hit the town.  Aftershoots allow us to create some more “edgy” shots without having to keep Mario & Meredith pristine for their wedding day.  We walked around some alleyways and streets of downtown Norfolk then headed to the beach for a quick romp through the water.  Too cool!  While these guys had shot with us a few times before, many of our aftershoot couples are first-timers with us wanting our style of photography but having already completed their wedding this is a great option!  Here’s a few shots of our afternoon with this fabulous couple:

Mary & Turner Aftershoot Norfolk | Couples Photography

Mary and Turner returned for a late afternoon shoot at the Japanese Gardens in downtown Norfolk with us and it was great to get to know them a bit more after we shot their wedding a few weeks ago.  Aftershoots are a ton of fun and they have even been called “therapeutic” since it is a separate shoot from their wedding day where the bride & groom can let their hair down so-to-speak.  Away from the hustle & bustle of the wedding day our Aftershoots offer our couples a refreshing time where we can do some more creative shooting without the risk of getting the gown a bit dirty on the wedding day!  In Mary & Turners case her dress from Maya Couture made it through just fine but some of our bride & grooms end up in the water or rolling around in the beach… name it!  Mary’s make-up was terrific thanks to the talents of Kim Wadsworth and we even did some studio shooting to show that off.  So, if you want a do-over for your wedding day, or in Mary & Turner’s case just an evening out together for a few stress-free shots in your wedding attire – contact us and we’ll set up your own Aftershoot just for you!

Wedding Slideshow Town Point Club – Tonya & Corey | Wedding Photography

Just a sneak peek into Tonya & Corey’s amazing wedding day at the Town Point Club in downtown Norfolk. We dodged a few raindrops but the party roared on through the rain & wind. It was a joy to hang out with them and get a few really cool shots! Check out the slideshow and you’ll see what I am talking about….

Wedding Slideshow Marriott Norfolk – Mike & Melanie

I love M&M’s they make my tummy happy. Mike & Melanie, while not being covered in a sweet candy shell, are certainly a treat to take pictures of! I am just sure that they have a warm chocolate center – I just know it! After all, how else can you explain all the joy and mirth (there’s a new word for your Scrabble game!) that followed them around on their wedding day? From the church to the Waterside Marriott it was a sweet ride! I have always thought M&M’s can cure world hunger and bring peace to the nations. It all starts with Mike & Melanie…. my favorite M&M’s of all!

Wedding Slideshow – Long Island, New York – Ryan & Xavia

Ryan & Xavia have got the whole love thing down – and it shows. A wedding at the amazing Chateau Briand on Long Island provided the perfect showcase for their most perfect day. We also worked in a 3am trip to Times Square where we basically had the whole place to ourselves! After spending all day and into the next with them they didn’t miss a beat. They’re not just talking the talk. They’re walking the walk. They’ve got love and it’s bigger than the Big Apple.

New York City, Times Square – Ryan & Xavia’s Aftershoot

The Big Apple is our backdrop for this shoot with Ryan & Xavia in Times Square, specifically.  I would have been tickled to just photograph all the lights and glitz of 42nd street but give me an awesome bride & groom and that just kicks it up a notch!  We hit the empty streets of Long Island at 2:30AM for a cruise down to Times Square to capture Broadway’s lights with a few less people in the way.  The streets were empty except for a few taxis and New York’s finest so we had the whole place to ourselves.  Say it with me now – Awesommmmme….. A big high five to our couple for allowing us to capture them on a shoot of a lifetime!  A few pics from our 3am excursion:

Long Island New York Wedding – Ryan & Xavia

I had one of “those” days last week. Not the kind you think though. It was a big “ah-ha” moment when it occurred to me that THIS is why I love my job so. Beautiful people at a killer location that get our photography. Yeah, that’s the ticket! Ryan and Xavia tied the knot at the fabulous Chateau Briand in Long Island, New York. Where was the last time you saw a bride and groom make their entrance THROUGH the floor in a cloud of smoke. So bizzare, yet so totally cool. Our destination weddings are getting better every week and this one certainly sets the bar high for all of you bride & grooms abroad! I challenge you to find a gown to top Xavia’s ostrich feather masterpiece or Ryan’s most suave suit. Total class down to the initials on the cuff links. I have a feeling we will be seeing more of these guys on this her blog – can you say Times Square? I have a vision…. Check out the new power couple –


Megan is the bomb! She picked a killer day for her senior shoot and we ran around downtown for a couple of hours just for the fun of it. Here’s Megan!
