00_Bina+LeVon_Aug2014_portraits-Couple-TheGirlTyler

It was wonderful to head back to the “Ghenthood” last week for a couples session with Bina & LeVon. Bina first contacted us on Facebook with a cheery message that simply read “You are amazing! My neighbor Kendal has been posting your work and I’m speechless. Keep it up lady!!” My heart was so full […]

00_Edmunds_homecoming-Norfolk-TheGirlTyler

It’s homecoming time again! Just the other week I spent a morning out on the docks with incredibly kind and fun Edmunds family waiting for PO Edmunds to arrive back home on the USS Nitze. Being a smaller ship, the crowd on the dock this time was a little less chaotic, but no less energetic […]

The first time I met Amber & Lisa, I knew they were special couple, the type that you could just feel the happiness, love and excitement exuding from them. We were introduced by Misty of Maya Couture (a mutual friend) at the Vow Event in February and immediately hit it off. After we had our […]

We hope you saw Part 1 of Nikki & Aaron’s awesome Southern backyard wedding yesterday because we have even more goodness for you today!

We were really excited when Nikki’s Mom, Darlene first contacted us about Nikki & Aaron’s wedding. Darlene has been Martin & Graham’s family hairdresser for decades at this point and has become a close friend of the Walshes, so it was like being asked to photograph and film for family. When we met with Nikki […]

Roman contacted me just before Valentine’s Day, wondering if we offered gift cards for sessions because he had an idea. He wanted to give his girlfriend Kelly a couples portrait session as a Valentine’s Day present so they could have pictures done in the spring.  But the plan was bigger than that… Roman was also […]

TheGirlTyler-USSTruman_April2014-Jamie&James-Homecoming_00

I’m not exactly sure how it hasn’t happened sooner, but after several years as a photographer in Hampton Roads, I finally captured my first Military Homecoming when the USS Truman returned recently. It was a truly AWESOME experience! When I drove through the gates that morning to all the signs welcoming home fathers, mothers, husbands, […]

Elizabeth-RJ_October_2013-TheGirlTyler-stripes-chevron-seaside-aqua-1_HEADER

Elizabeth & Russell (known as RJ to friends and family) were married this past October at Aqua at Kings Creek Marina in Cape Charles, Virginia. A wedding on the beautiful Eastern Shore of Virginia provides great inspiration from the location itself; the town of Cape Charles alone is full of a vintage seaside charm, which […]

Ariel & Chris were married this past October at the Hermitage Museum & Gardens in Norfolk, Virginia. When we first met with Ariel, we both gushed about the beautiful features of her venue – its rustic touches and historic feel – which she wanted to capture in the look of the paper goods we were […]

Just wrapped up a little Encore Music Video for Elizabeth & Graham. What better way to celebrate almost one year of marriage than treating yourself to another film from the big day? We thought it was a pretty great idea too  Be sure to check out their Music Video too! Special thanks to all the […]
