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.
This First Colony Inn Classic Nags Head Wedding was the perfect setting for Jordan and Steve to tie the knot. The venue reflected their coastal style and the whole weekend was completely them. Steps from the beach, they enjoyed the beautiful September weather of the Outer Banks paired with a Cocktail Camper by Camp Cocktail , beautiful garden blooms, and dancing under their clear top tent to one of the coolest bands around, Cheap Thrills. I’d say this wedding weekend fit them to a T and spoke to their beach nature and to the purpose in spending the most time with the people who matter to them. Their weekend was all about hanging out with their people, celebrating their love, and truly embracing the whole weekend with their guests. What I love most about these two is that they just want to have fun with each other and with their friends and family. They wanted their day to be just that, FUN. Their wedding was more about the celebration that anything else. While absolutely gorgeous, the day truly reflected their hearts to celebrate their marriage.
Jordan and Steve are the kind of people you gravitate to. You want to be around them for their fun nature and sweet spirits. They both light up a room not just with their stunning good looks but for their spirit. They are the life of the party. I have known Jordan since Middle School and she has always had this way about her that makes you feel comfortable around her and always makes you feel special. The two of these gorgeous people are simply better together. They compliment each other so well and the way their eyes meet… they are completely in tune with each other. It was an honor to be a part of their wedding day and I am thrilled to share just a peak (bare with me, it is a long post) into their beautiful wedding down in the Outer Banks!
