Hi there! I’m a Wedding & Anniversary photographer based in Virginia Beach, serving couples throughout Hampton Roads, the Outer Banks (OBX) and beyond. A wife to my handsome firefighter husband, obsessed dog-mom to my precious pup, Bodie, and lover of the sand, salt, and sea. I’m a creative soul who finds a deep joy in capturing your love story throughout every stage of life; preserving the memories you experience along the way. A lifetime of love isn’t always calm waters, but it’s always worth the ride.
Where do I start with this wedding? I absolutely loved this Navy and Blush Lesner Inn wedding. Christina and Anthony are down to earth and such a beautiful couple inside and out!! Christina looked so stunning and Anthony was equally as handsome!! It warms my heart to see an old friend so incredible happy!! As I arrived to get Anthony’s getting ready photos, I was greeted by some old friends and boy did we have fun!! It was so amazing to be able to be a part of friend’s special days and also to be surrounded by friends of your own. I haven’t see these guys in years… I’m mean years… and we picked up right where we left off. The whole day was packed with emotion, fun, and beauty. I knew Christina was crafty but this girl had all the details to the T.
I loved all the time they allowed me to photograph them. We truly got some amazing images for them to cherish for years to come. I hope the future for you both holds all the laughs, all the joy, and your bond strengthens as life gets hard. Cherish the mundane moments and relish in the adventurous ones. Remember this day and build upon the love you feel in this moment. You two are the best and I am so grateful to have been a part of your day!!! hope you had the most incredible time in Ochos Rios, Jamaica. (Fun fact… they honeymooned at the same place we did)!!
