Row after perfect row of white Adirondack chairs were neatly arranged on the Clubhouse lawn in preparation for Danielle and Mike’s outdoor wedding ceremony and the reception to follow on the Verandah.

As a wedding photographer, it is both refreshing and rewarding to work with a bride who knows exactly what she wants. From the day we first met, Danielle had a clear vision for her wedding portrait with Aaron…she dreamed of a dramatic nighttime portrait photographed outdoors immediately following their wedding ceremony at NAS Oceana. We visited many unique locations before the wedding day to find the perfect one to fulfill Danielle’s dream. Some…

It is easy to understand why any couple would want to get married in beautiful Virginia Beach and I have had the pleasure of photographing numerous destination weddings here. Because of the travel often required for family and friends to attend, some have been more intimate ceremonies with smaller groups in attendance.

Like many brides and grooms, Ashley and Michael started early and spent a lot of time planning the details of their wedding. Because there are so many things that can easily distract the bride or the groom on their wedding day, it was certainly time well spent. So when that special day did finally arrive, Ashley and Michael’s outdoor wedding celebration was absolutely perfect! I mention this because I cannot recall working with a bride and groom so…

There are two unstoppable forces in the universe that march exclusively to the beat of their own drummer…one is true love between a man and a woman and the other is the military. Destinee and David were obviously in love with each other and it was destined to be only a matter of time before they would be married. However, when it became clear that Destinee would be reporting for duty in southern California in January, these two unstoppable forces…

The Christmas trees in the Dominion Christian Center in Virginia Beach provided a seasonal backdrop for Jenna and Ralph’s December wedding. It was exciting to photograph a beautiful winter wedding combined with a taste of holiday tradition. It has been my experience as a wedding photographer that almost anything can happen on the day of the wedding. Whether something truly silly or something a little more serious, the wedding day will be just…

One of the extraordinary benefits of being a wedding photographer is that I have the privilege of working intimately with so many genuinely great couples, and all this begins with the engagement portrait session. It is during the engagement portrait session that the bride and groom first learn they can truly trust me to capture the most important day in their new lives. It is also during this time that I begin to learn more about the essence of both the…

As soon as Carrie described the venue she and Brian had chosen for their wedding, I just knew it would be a wedding photographers dream. Well, it was all that and so much more! The historic Wilton House Museum in Richmond was built in 1753 true to the Colonial American style of the period. Situated with a commanding view of the James River, it provided a truly majestic backdrop for Carrie and Brian’s wedding ceremony. The wedding…

I could hardly wait to photograph Amanda and Jared’s wedding. From the time the bride and groom arrived at St John the Apostle Catholic Church in Virginia Beach, it was obvious they had an energy and excitement that would set the tone for the entire wedding ceremony. Amanda was beautiful, poised and she had a smile she could not get off her face. Jared was confident, relaxed and…well, just being Jared. They were both clearly excited about…
