Naval homecomings never get old, each one is a new experience and full of emotions. To a navy wife, being apart is a fact of life from moving to underways, the one thing they would all tell you is “anything is better than deployment!” That’s why capturing homecomings is so monumental and I take them […]

Virginia Beach Family Photographer

It’s always an honor to take photos for other photographers. It’s a blast when you get to take photos for a friend. It’s pretty much the best when you get to take photos for a friend who IS a photographer. Leigh is an amazing photographer based in Norfolk, so when she asked us to take […]

Norfolk Virginia Lifestyle Photographer (2)

As Norfolk Lifestyle Photographers, we appreciate homecomings. While we don’t shoot too many of them thanks to our schedules, we’re always stoked to shoot them when we actually can. Homecomings are always filled with pure happiness and real moments and everything that we love. (Fact: We may or may not always tear up.) You pretty much can’t […]

Richmond Engagement Session

Wesley and Tyler are old friends from JMU (oh, the stories he could tell you) and we were beyond thrilled to find out that he and Derek are getting hitched. We were even more thrilled to shoot their Richmond Engagement Session. Wesley deserves someone amazing, and after meeting Derek a few times, we knew he fit the bill. Not […]

Lifestyle Newborn Session Norfolk Virginia Newborn Photographers (7)

We love when clients turn into friends. At this point, Kendal and Patrick are pretty much family. (Sadly, we’re not actually related even though we all have the same last name.) We photographed and filmed Kendal and Patrick’s wedding in 2013 and were honored to shoot a fun “we’re expecting” session when the two found out Henry was […]

Virginia Beach Engagement Session (16)

If there is one thing Sabra and Alex understand, it is being busy. Sabra travels all over the country opening restaurants and Alex owns his own sports training complex. Scheduling sessions can be kind of tricky for us this time of year. Between weddings, commercial work and the holidays, it’s always a tight squeeze. When we found […]

As our business grows, it’s become more and more important to us to give back to the community that surrounds us. A lot of times it can mean donating our services to a worthy cause. When our friend Ashley Mitchell posted that a friend and fellow JMU Duke, Bill, (GO DUKES!) was looking for a […]

Virginia Beach Portrait Session  (16)

We had the pleasure of shooting Amanda and Dan’s wedding film last year at the Chrysler Museum  and were thrilled when they contacted us for a first anniversary lifestyle session. We love the idea of setting up a special session to celebrate your first anniversary. (Or any anniversary. Fact: We basically love anytime as a couple […]

Virginia Lifestyle Session Virginia Maternity Photographer (13)

It’s always an honor to be asked to shoot sessions for fellow photographers and our pals in the industry. When Stephanie from Stephanie Michelle Photography contacted us about shooting a lifestyle maternity session in her home, we were stoked. Lifestyle sessions are slowly becoming some our favorite things to shoot. The photos always feel so authentic and […]

If you thought Part 1 of Danielle & Charlie’s wedding was fun, wait until you see all the Creative Virginia Wedding Photography we have today! I love the challenge of trying to shoot a familiar venue in a whole new way and when your couple is all about the real moments you capture instead of […]
