“The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination and brings eternal joy to the soul.” -Wyland


I've been lucky enough to be surrounded by love throughout my life. Not the kind of love you see in movies but the kind that's hard and takes work, yet leaves you feeling completely & utterly blown away.

I want that kind of love for everyone.

That’s why I’ve spent almost a decade capturing love stories through the lens of my Canon Mark IV Because photographs help keep your memories alive and all the more endearing with each passing year.

I believe that your wedding day is more than all the beautiful little details and the great party. It’s the beginning of your marriage and a lifetime spent alongside your best friend.

So whether it’s an engagement, wedding, or anniversary shoot, my heart stands with two people building a meaningful life together, no matter what stage of life you’re in.


 


 


Photographer & Print Shop Owner | Virginia Beach, VA

Hi! I’M ELIZABETH.

KEEP READING >>

As much as capturing your ongoing love story makes my heart skip a beat, you’ll also hear me sharing my passion for the sea, my enthusiasm for guiding brides through all things wedding, my joy in helping you create a coastal space you love, and my honest, unfiltered journey as a creative entrepreneur. #realtalk

When I’m not shooting, editing, or creating my next piece of content, I’m most likely strolling the beach with my handsome firefighter husband and our precious pup Bodie. Those two are my world!

I’m so glad you’re here and that you’ve stuck around to read this far. (You must be my kind of bride!) I can’t wait to hear more about your love story and would be honored to be the photographer that’s there with you on your biggest day. Get in touch here or explore the EFP experience.

A few of our favorites

Traveling to 
Coastal Towns

My husband and I definitely caught the travel bug, so we're always ready for our next beach getaway - whether that's just south to The Outer Banks, or somewhere a bit more tropical. We’re drawn to a slower pace of life and the chance to simply soak it all in....can you blame us?

A few of our favorites

Collecting Little Ocean Treasures

Our house is full of coastal decor and influences from my family of creatives. You’ll find copper that was always used by my mom in her art (before it was cool again), nautical charts that I learned about from my Dad (a NOAA Oceanographic Engineer), little treasures from our walks, and my own art prints from the Soul of the Sea Print Shop!

Beach walks 
with Bodie

This four-legged fur baby captured our hearts in 2013, just two weeks before we said our vows. He’s named after the lighthouse in The Outer Banks - the Bodie Island Lighthouse. Although he's a little ball of energy, give me those puppy kisses or family beach walks any time of day!

Drinking Crushes
& Bloody Marys

I definitely like to enjoy an adult beverage from time to time! I'm mostly partial to brunch drinks like a refreshing Orange Crush or a good Bloody Mary bar with all the fixings. But who am I kidding, I also love me some red wine…

Finding the Best
Fish Tacos

I love, like LOVE, fish tacos in all forms. We take every chance we get to try all the local spots and avoid chains (unless it's Chipotle, of course). We're always on the hunt for the best in town!

THE SHOTS WE ENVISIONED

Not only did [Elizabeth’s] aesthetic match our vision, but her personality and relaxed nature put us at ease and allowed us to open up. She understood our vision, understood that we weren’t super comfortable in front of a camera, and worked with us every step of the way to get us the exact shots we envisioned. It is Elizabeth’s love and respect for marriage that enables her to capture the small, beautiful, and intimate moments between the couples she works with.

MY PRAYERS WERE ANSWERED

All of my prayers were answered when we decided to have Elizabeth come and shoot our wedding! I can't say enough positive things about her both as an individual and as a professional photographer! I have never felt so comfortable around someone while having my picture taken, and I know my husband would say the same thing!

ONE OF THE BEST

... She is the embodiment of professionalism and talent, truly one of the best in the business. I knew right away that she had to be the one to photograph my wedding and she did it so beautifully. Not only that, but I had a surprise wedding and she kept my secret for months! She truly goes above and beyond and I will be a client for as long as she's in business. I cannot thank her enough.

BEST PHOTOGRAPHER EVER

...She is hands down the best photographer ever. Starting with our engagement pictures, she made us feel comfortable... Elizabeth was quick, demanded the participation of our groomsmen/bridesmaids in a professional way, and captured some gorgeous pictures all while getting us to our cocktail hour and reception in plenty of time.

... I will never be able to explain just how wonderful Elizabeth was in words... Elizabeth truly believes in love and the REAL purpose of marriage. Her love for this in addition to her talent makes her a truly phenomenal human being... Our engagement photos and wedding photos are absolutely wonderful and I will be forever grateful to Elizabeth for capturing these special moments so beautifully for us.
