Norfolk Neon District Engagement Session
Chastity + Antoine
This Norfolk Neon District Engagement Session had me go full Urban and I am so in love with it! When my couples pick the right place, they are relaxed and they rock it.
Chastity and Antoine decided on Norfolk Neon District for their engagement photos. We walked around a couple blocks of the Neon District area with the idea of finishing around the Padoga Garden for some sunset and nighttime portraits, which of course I love to do.
They met four years ago and Antoine knew what he liked! Of course, Chastity couldn’t resist the self proclaimed beauty-god and finally caved in to his charms. She accepted that first date but when you have an odd work schedule, you have to get creative. So, Chastity stayed up late and made an amazing home-cooked meal (Chastity for the win!) and had the best conversations over wine and dessert with the possibilities of the future.
Throughout the years together, they have done midnight car drives to unknown places as dates. They have stayed creative and spontaneous even when their schedules get in the way. Antoine has shown Chastity the beauty of the stars and open fields and the bright of a future with a hardworking family man; while Chastity has shown him true devotion and the sense of humor needed to have a lifetime together.
On her birthday at the struck of midnight, Antoine dropped a bottled water and with finesse went on one knee and asked Chastity to marry him. Now they are planning a beautiful wedding which I am so thankful for the opportunity to document too. They will be getting married this year in Suffolk, Virginia.
Special thanks to the owner of Blue Dog Smoke Shop, who allowed us to go in and photograph a bit plus had air-conditioning which saved us from the hot weather we were dying of. Thank you.
