    Hampton Couple’s Session | Cathy and Josh

    If you are looking for your own Hampton Couple’s Session, I love to try new things! I won’t lie. I get nervous at every single wedding or session I am driving to. There is something about wanting to do your absolute best for someone. Even when my clients may say awesome things about me, I always feel I can do so much better for them because they deserve the absolute best. Cathy and Josh’s Hampton Couple’s session wasn’t any different, except that it was nerve-racking! Cathy is a wedding photographer herself and she has tagged along as an assistant and second shooter countless times during my seven years in business,…

No couple is less than the other as both types give me the experience to feel creative and alive. Stephanie and Rob wanted to celebrate their future out of state wedding with a stormy Fort Monroe Engagement Session. I was honored! But worried. The forecast was not promising and we already had rescheduled once before. Since…

    Hampton Engagement Session | Angie + Dave

    Hampton Engagement Session This Hampton Engagement Session brings all the joys. Sometimes love is right around the corner and you never realize it. It could be right in front of your eyes but sometimes we miss it. While working in the same building, an seeing each other around, Angie and Dave never spoke. Perhaps a little “Good morning nod” was exchanged but I don’t think they can’t even recall that. Then, Match.com comes to the rescue, and Angie saw Dave’s profile. A simple, “I know you” is what it took for this opportunity to become reality. She knew OF him, and his accent, but not him personally. After a week…

    Hampton University Engagement | Jaime + Sean | Emancipation Oak Tree

    2016 Jaime and Sean’s love started when, according to Sean, Jaime stole his library seating spot while both attending Hampton University. They hit it off and started dating shortly after that. Proposal: On what seemed like a regular day, Sean took Jaime to have a manicure, pedicure and a massage (seriously, ladies!) and with the excuse of venue searching walked Fort Monroe where they ended up on the top of the Chamberlin. Next thing Jaime sees is Sean on one knee asking her to be his wife. Shocked and excited, of course, she said yes! They will be getting married next May at the Chamberlin (how appropriate!) Session: They choose…
