Brooke & Kaleb | Norfolk Botanical Gardens Wedding Norfolk, Virginia Wedding Photographers

Norfolk Botanical Gardens is one of our favorites for sure and holds a pretty special place for us because it is where we ourselves got engaged… (in the Renaissance Court to be exact)!! The gardens are gorgeous year round and we couldn’t wait for Brooke and Kaleb’s Wedding in the Butterfly Garden. We might be a little biased but we think the Butterfly Garden for a Wedding ceremony is one of the most special spots in the gardens. Tucked back into it’s own gorgeous little cove surrounded with trees and lush greenery draping the garden gazebo, if you linger at the perfect time which just so happened to be during their ceremony, the light is at it’s most ideal and peeks through the trees making for the most beautiful garden Wedding portraits during the Ceremony! From the sweetest Father daughter “first look” to their party on the patio into the night, we had so much fun capturing Brooke & Kaleb’s incredible day!  I’m sure you can agree the flowers were perfect.. if only you could have tasted their cake and have felt the energy on the dance floor!!  As usual we worked with an incredible vendor team. Check them out below!

A Letter to Our Brides Hampton Roads Virginia, Wedding Photographers

Dear Blush Wood brides & brides to be,

It is the sweetest most unexpected blessing that we would be able to pursue this dream together, planning and praying for Blush Wood before we ourselves said “I do.” We had no idea how much more Joy and Fun all of you would bring into our lives! We had no idea all the places we would go and the amazing families we would get to meet! For all of you we’re just so thankful!!  We love you! To our brides to be,

To make the day epic and create memories to last there are a few things we have to Ask:

  • Don’t hold back the laughter or the tears..  You’re beautiful and we’ll remind you a million times.
  • Don’t worry about the weather.. The forecast doesn’t scare us. We’ll stand in the rain, we’ll freeze with you in the snow and fan you in the heat.. We promise, there WILL be magical moments in every season. 
  • Can we take adventures? Walk in the fields, climb mountains, explore together and chase the pretty light?
  • Will you dance your heart out and have an absolute blast on your Wedding day?


You’re the bride who has dreamed of romance, love and storytelling… a wedding that’s uniquely yours surrounded by the people who have meant the most. For your husband-to-be you’ve prayed and on your Wedding day let’s celebrate that!! 

We want to be the best photographers and storytellers we could ever dream to be and we want you to have the most beautiful Wedding photos (& film!!) you could’ve ever hoped for. We promise we’re going to do everything we can to do just that!

Thank you in advance for trusting us. Trust is important. Thank you for listening to our suggestions on timelines and outfits and locations. Most importantly, thank you for giving us … time –  

Time with you to create!! 


With each season, we’re scratching a bit more on the surface of our ginormous dreams and it’s already just so good . So dear Blush Wood bride to be, for all of you beauties we’ve met, for those we can’t wait to squeeze and for those who will join the crew in these next few Engagement filled months….

This is Your Season. Enjoy it. Soak it in. Plan & Dream! You’re getting married!!

Love, Courtney & Michael

Allison & Wyatt | The Historic Post Office Hampton, Virginia Wedding Photographers

To get to know Allison & Wyatt even just a little bit is to love them! Hearing their story of how the Lord brought them together over coffee felt like meeting up with old friends and having the honor of capturing their Wedding day blessed us in more ways than they know!


Allison’s “Something Blue”, was a heart patch inside of her Wedding dress made from one of her Dad’s shirts.

Though the days leading up to Allison & Wyatt’s Wedding day were bitter sweet as they grieved the loss of Allison’s Dad, their hope and faith in God’s love and in His comfort were a huge testimony.

Allison was stunning!

We love this one!!

Pretty sure we were both crying behind our cameras during the first dances!!

Allison and Wyatt, what an awesome day you had.. from the beginning to the very end!

We’re so excited for the journey God is taking them on together. We know it will be filled with love, family, adventure and with beauty!!

Lexi & Steven | Woman’s Club of Norfolk Norfolk, Virginia Wedding Photographers

Of all the things we loved about Lexi & Steven’s day (and there were so many) we loved how intimate and cozy it was! Their ceremony in the living room of  The Martin Mansion was all the things you’d imagine a Wedding “at home” would be and it was so special! Guests mingled in the parlor and into their reception for a night of dinner and a whole lot of dancing! Congratulations Lexi & Steven on your beautiful Wedding day!
