Outer Banks Wedding Photography at Vista Creek | Manteo, North Carolina
The rain didn’t put a damper on this incredible day one bit! Scott and Rachel were married on Saturday overlooking the Roanoke Island Marshes in the Outer Banks. At the gorgeous Vista Creek Event Venue with florals abundant from Holiday House, they put on a gorgeous reception for their guests, filled with incredible food, signature drinks and a lively dance floor. It was certainly a night to remember!
Norfolk Botanical Garden Wedding Photography | Norfolk, Virginia
Tim and Melinda were married last Saturday at the Norfolk Botanical Garden in what had to be one of my favorite weddings of the year!! I might be a littttle biased because I’ve known Melinda since elementary school (and am friends with her entire bridal party!), but once you see the pictures, I think you’ll agree that the day was absolutely gorgeous. Because of the large gap between Tim and Melinda’s early afternoon ceremony at Holy Trinity Catholic Church and their cocktail hour at the Garden, we had a large part of the afternoon to walk around the grounds and take pictures. That extra time allowed me to get creative, not feel rushed and create some magic (if I do say so myself!). I’m so in love with their portraits!!
A Waterfront Wedding in Sandbridge | Virginia Beach Wedding Photograper
Jeff and Liz were married on a perfect day in late September overlooking the marshes of Back Bay in Sandbridge. When I say a “perfect day”, I mean it - it was perfect. Not only the weather, the people, or the timeline, but absolutely every detail! The day went off without a single hitch, and for a day that can be filled with so much stress, that is a rarity! In the words of the bride, “it was a total dream”.
Princess Anne Country Club Wedding Photographer | Virginia Beach, Virginia
JT and Natalie’s Princess Anne Country Club wedding on Saturday was certainly an affair to remember!! Their very talented vendor team worked magic off to make this day absolutely perfect for the newlyweds, and Natalie told me that she and JT were obsessed with how the day turned out. She reiterated how much they loved every second - that it was like “someone perfectly recreated what was in [my] head”. Gather Floral Design filled the day with greenery and hydrangeas (the couple’s favorite flower), and Hannah Hildebrandt Events made sure everything ran smoothly! Natalie’s Madison James gown was easily one of the most gorgeous dresses I have ever seen! The glittering mismatched bridesmaid dresses lended an elegance that complimented the groomsmen’s Calvin Klein tuxedos perfectly.
Virginia Beach Wedding Photography at the Water Table | Virginia Beach, Virginia
Are you ready for the most perfect coastal wedding there ever was?! Evan and Olivia were married on Friday in a beautiful ceremony by the docks of the Water Table in Virginia Beach. This was my first time shooting at the Water Table and, I have to admit, I’m absolutely obsessed with it!! The lighting on the docks is dreamy, and all of the windows lining the reception room are absolutely stunning (you know I love my natural light!!). Not to mention the fact that the ceremony location is right on Rudee Inlet! Olivia’s taste in decor was impeccable, from the roses, greenery and sea stars overflowing from the candle lit tablescapes, to the aqua bridesmaids dresses and coral and blush bouquets that made a gorgeous contrast with the light background of yachts and sky.
