Founders Inn Virginia Beach Wedding | Bethany & Michael Virginia Beach, Virginia Wedding Photographers


Michael and Bethany met at the Virginia Zoo where we they are both zookeepers.  Their romance had a chance to blossom after they both were hired on full time after their internship! Their love for animals and traveling all over the world has made them a perfect fit! There were so many special touches to their Wedding day. From Bethany’s DIY centerpieces and the animal place card holders where guests found their tables to the largest spread of sweets and desserts at a Wedding we’ve ever seen! It was amazing. Their intimate ceremony at the Founder’s Inn included a tree planting ceremony with soil from both of their childhood homes. Their design scheme was elegant with succulents that fit perfectly with their colors and the beauty of a perfect spring day. We had so much fun capturing them and the whole family! Guests danced the night away as DJ Danny Gray from Astro DJ’s and Entertainment kept the dance floor full the entire evening! It was such a great party!

Congratulations to Bethany & Michael on your Wedding!! We hope you have an AMAZING Time on your Honeymoon!! Safe Travels….

Pleasure House Point Engagements | Melissa & Drew Virginia Beach, Virginia Wedding Photographers

Melissa & Drew’s Virginia Beach Engagements were just the perfect ending to what had been a rainy Sunday! We knew the rain would clear up and the result was a perfect evening for running around through tall grass and along sandy trails. Melissa and Drew are carefree, relaxed and so easy to hit it off with! We really enjoyed getting to know them! We cannot wait to capture their sweet chemistry with one another on their Wedding day!!

Oval Garden Wedding at the Williamsburg Inn Williamsburg, Virginia Wedding Photographers

Holly & Jesse’s love story began on the campus of James Madison University in the beginning of 2014! While they were both busily involved in campus ministry through Campus Crusade and serving on the Servant team together they began hanging out with mutual friends. By the fall of that year, Jesse asked Holly to be his girlfriend! It’s an awesome thing when you know without a doubt from the beginning of your relationship that God has brought you together! Holly & Jesse’s love story has endured long distances and many days apart since their time at college. Through all of the distance their love endured and continued to grow stronger.

Eventually when Holly & Jesse were able to be together again they both moved to Harrisburg, PA to work in Hershey in the hospitality industry! On September 6, 2018, they decided to go hiking in Shenandoah National Park and unbeknownst to Holly at the end of the hike they would be engaged! Jesse proposed atop the Blue Ridge Mountains where they went hiking on Bearfence Mountain, the same trail they had hiked four years earlier when they hung out for the first time!!

Their Wedding day was beautiful….  As they build their new life together we wish them many blessings and a lifetime of love!!


Leaving to the fight song and a classic JMU Streamer exit!! Congratulations Holly & Jesse!!

Thank you to a wonderful team of Vendors!

Providence Hall House at Williamsburg Inn | Emily + Andrey Williamsburg, Virginia Wedding Photographers

Emily & Andrey met in 2015 while they both were exchange students in Erfurt, Germany. Soon after meeting they began dating and when the semester came to its end, they decided to continue their relationship long-distance. Since then they have had numerous adventures together. On New Year’s Eve in 2017 at midnight Emily proposed to Andrey on a riverbank in Heidelberg, Germany. He said, “Yes!”

It’s been a long wait for this beautiful couple, but the day came and it was sweet!

Their small and intimate Wedding at The Providence Hall House was lovely. It felt in so many ways like stepping into a Jane Austen novel!!  Their Wedding day was all the things everyone hopes for –  romantic, family focused and relaxed! Although the rains showered throughout the entire day, it didn’t stop them from enjoying their horse and carriage, the setting of the house and the beautiful backdrop of the Williamsburg Inn.

Emily wore her mother’s Wedding dress and added a green ribbon! There was a Vodka toast, which is part of Russian Wedding tradition and ginger bread cookies from Russia!  Emily & Andrey made their Wedding bands (pretty amazing!!) Their cake and cupcakes, designed by Cakes by Tawanda incorporated her forest theme and a cake topper by Heartmade Cottage. Emily’s handmade bouquet was from Etsy shop, Thread and Heart and her hairpiece by Deliziosa Accessori was simple and gorgeous.

A very special thank you to:
