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 […]

A Downtown Norfolk, and Virginia Beach Oceanfront Engagement Session Ali loves dogs. It is known. Especially her dog, Remy. She comes out the gate with a spirit of brightness and warmth. Trevor is an undercover cat lover. He may seem reserved, but his humor is quick to punch through and meet yours. According to Ali, […]

I can’t say it enough- Allison and Samuel are perfect for each other. I basically died right after Allison asked Mark and I to photograph their wedding, because they are just so stinkin’ adorable. They are both laid back and just happy to be around each other. They make weird faces at each other and call each other random variations of the word “babe.”

Eileen and Dustin were wed on a warm fall morning at the Old Town Hall, in Fairfax, Virginia. The beauty of the venue matched that of the joyous couple seamlessly: refined and inviting, open but intimate.

YAAAAAWWWWWNNNN.

Max wakes up too early. He’s always doing stuff like he’s soooooo coooool. Whatever. I’m tired. Sometimes, sleeping makes me tired, so I sleep it off. I think I might love sleep more than food, but only when I’m not eating. Eating makes me sleepy, too, and I love sleep, so that just makes food even better!

Two things that kind of scare me as a photographer: high wind and bright sun. I really have an affinity for shooting in during overcast days. Anyway, when I went down to the oceanfront to photograph a styled bridal session coordinated by Viktoriya of The Hanging Gardens, it was both very windy and very sunny. However, I embraced the unknown and we ended up with some gorgeous pictures. Jen, our beautiful model, absolutely rocked it, and basically this session ended up being the stuff of dreams.

Lay thine eyes upon our beaut of a garden! Look at it! Okay, you can stop now.

Anyway, the last time we blogged about anything garden related, it was us starting SEEDS! See all those tomato plants at the front of this picture? Those were little seeds I put in like a tablespoon of dirt back in March, and they sprouted and now they have FRUIT on them. Four of them are heirloom tomato plants, so I can use their seeds for next year (if I remember while devouring them…). That’s kind of the point though, because we eventually want to be able to grow everything year after year from the seeds of our last crop. Sustainability, y’all.

Tiffany and Danny got engaged last fall, and their wedding is kind of special to Mark and I- because it’s the first wedding we have in Virginia Beach! Isn’t it crazy that we’ve not shot ONE wedding in our own town yet??? I think so, but I’m also happy that people love us enough to keep hiring us, and wholeheartedly recommending us even though we have to charge traveling fees. I love that all of our clients feel like family and want the best for us, and visa versa.

It’s been several months now since this shoot, and yet I’ve still not blogged the other half, so here it is today! Whitney and Robbie, the gorgeous couple that modelled for us, have been married for almost 4 years, but they acted every bit like newly weds. They are doing such a good job keeping the joy alive, and that made it so easy to capture their love for each other. They were joking around and laughing the whole time.
