So, Kat and I just made plans with one of our newest couples, Helen and Ralph. A laid back dinner (or lunch, Katherine has yet to tell me,) sounds like a great idea. These two are our very first Bumble couple. Ralph appropriately makes his wife’s eyes roll. Instant seal of approval. Even better, they […]

A film photography workshop and styled shoot at the Tudor Place in Washington, DC. — Last October I attended my first in-person workshop, ever! I saw my friend Natalie, of Natalie Jayne Photography, was hosting a workshop to teach the art of film photography. I knew I needed to attend! I’ve had my great-grandfathers Nikon […]

Marcus and Arielle might be perfect. They are definitely perfect for each other! Both are hard-working, kind, and just the right amount of lighthearted. They love candid, real moments, and we had a wonderful time with them among the spring blooms. Our original plan was to take a few pictures at Red Wing Park with […]

Jonathan and Reneé | A Historic Old Donation Wedding in Virginia Beach ______ Mark has known Jon his whole life, since they’re brothers and all, and I met him on a skiing trip over a decade ago (I feel slightly old). He and Mark picked me up at like 4 in the morning so we […]

Historic Greenbrier Farms | Chesapeake, Virginia Wedding September 14, 2019 was all about Morgan and Mason. As Mark mentioned in last week’s blog, we met these two over a year ago before they hired us to do their engagement session at First Landing. We were so so happy when they met with us again earlier […]

Katherine and Mark? Stop it. Mark and Katherine Johnson. Enter — Morgan and Mason. These two can’t be introduced without their two […]

Heather and Stephen are literal superheros. Not only did they plan a wedding while buying a house and moving (on top of continuing on with their normal lives), but they also had to scramble to find a new venue at the last minute!! They found out their first choice had been sold and would no […]

Hello all. Mark here. Jonathon Johnson and Renee Ambrose got engaged, predictably. Having witnessed her first meeting with his family (my family), I can safely say it was a done deal from the beginning. Renee says she’s not extra (she’s extra). Jon’s as low-profile as it gets. They say opposites attract, right? Balancing their healthy […]

We love Heather and Stephen! From the first time we Skyped with them, Mark and I knew it was meant to be, and we can’t wait for their wedding TOMORROW! Back in May, we met them over at Oozlefinch Brewery in Hampton for a few drinks before we went into Ft Monroe. While there, we […]

Hello all! Katherine here! Long time since we blogged, so be prepared for quite a few today. Heheheh. I had so much fun photographing Grace and Jack last summer! We met down at the end of the beach, close to Ft. Story, and frolicked around. Jack brought his guitar, Grace changed in a pop-up changing […]
