Lauren & Jason | Virginia Beach Oceanfront Virginia Beach, Virginia Wedding Photographers

Seriously… what a beautiful, perfect Wedding!! We loved this day so much!

Lauren and Jason met on a Saturday night in June of 2017 when they were both out in Norfolk at a favorite restaurant, Luce. Lauren described her being there as a bit random and also as one of the luckiest (and perhaps most divine) days of her life! Jason was already at the bar, intending only to stop in for a nightcap and Lauren rarely went out in Norfolk but had friends in town, so out they went! Their first stop was Grain, but it was too crowed so Lauren and her friends decided to head over to Luce for what she says was a a quieter scene.

Lauren and Jason noticed each other across the bar almost immediately. A bit of timed passed and she finally told her girlfriend that she just had to know who that guy across the bar was who kept looking her way!  So she mustered up the courage and introduced herself to Jason. She thought he was shy at first and wasn’t interested but they ended up talking for the rest of the night!!

Lauren told us, that “while each of us being at Luce was a bit atypical, it was absolute serendipity. Jason came into my life at the exact moment he was supposed to, as if he was delivered right to me when I needed him most. We both look back on that night often and think, how lucky are we that we were in the right place at the right time? It was love at first sight….we both felt like we just “knew.””!! 

They went on their first date less than a week later and quickly became inseparable! After a year of growing in love, Jason recreated their first date (exactly a year to the day) and asked Lauren to be his bride!

AND What a gorgeous Wedding! We had such a wonderful time working with Lauren & Jason … from meeting them for the first time for drinks in Virginia Beach to their beach Engagement session, it was evident to us how great of  friends they are and the chemistry they have together!

Their Wedding, at their family home on the oceanfront in Virginia Beach was intimate and lovely with neutrals of Navy & Mauve. The perfect setting for a sophisticated yet at home evening, strewn with Edison bulbs, corn hole and oysters!

Congratulations Lauren & Jason!!! & HAPPY BIRTHDAY LAUREN!!!!

Baxter & Anthony | 108 Budleigh Manteo, North Carolina - OBX Wedding Photographers

‘Anthony and Baxter met in the 9th grade at Maury High School in Norfolk. They were each other’s first loves, and even though they weren’t together for many years, they always remained friends! Anthony would check in on Baxter, and would come visit from time to time. Even after Anthony moved out to California in 2014, he would still come visit Baxter when he came back in town! In October of 2015. Anthony had finished a project he had been working on and was spending some time back on the East coast with family and friends. During this time,  Anthony & Baxter started making more and more time to see one another! Then on December 5th, 2015 they decided they were going to be together, and were going to move out to California! “It’s so wonderful having a person who truly gets you and loves you as you are.” – Baxter!

Capturing this Wedding was so special to us because I (Courtney) went to school with these two!! Baxter & Anthony are kindhearted, fun and all around really good people! I was so happy to not only see them and reconnect from what feels like ages ago but to capture their beautiful Wedding day… I cried behind my camera 3 times!!!! haha

A design scheme of  Eggplant, burnt orange, fuchsia, eucalyptus and gold, Baxter & Anthony’s Wedding was rich with vibrant fall colors. Their ceremony was intimate, their reception was elegant and the dance floor was Hype!

Congratulations again Baxter & Anthony!! Thank you so much for trusting us to capture your incredible Wedding. May the years ahead be sweet, prosperous and full of love!
