    Stormy Fort Monroe Engagement | Stephenie & Rob

    Who wants to have a stormy Fort Monroe Engagement Session? Well, when you have, you have to! I am so blessed with the couples who pick me as their photographer. Some I get to experience their journey to the aisle from the beginning, while others I get to photograph only parts of their journey. 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…

    Hub757 Wedding | Gabrielle & Marc

    My first time having a Hub757 Wedding and I am in love! The space is perfect for a great party and great decorations. It is so spacious, your guest will not feel like sardines. I was so thrilled when Gabrielle and  Marc contacted me to document their ceremony at their church, Riverbend Church, followed by a night of music and good times at the Hub757. Oh, the things I could say about these two! I absolutely love Gabrielle and Marc. Both are full of life, kind, loving and ready to party. Gabrielle’s attention to details, both in decoration and timeline, was a dream to work with. While Marc, with his…

    Colonial Williamsburg Engagement | Kathryn & Michael

    I love Kathryn and Michael. Ok, I don’t love them … I LOVE them! And yet, I cannot believe I didn’t blog their Colonial Williamsburg Engagement Session! It’s been such a crazy wedding season that I stopped blogging for a while with the occasional wedding blogged, so yes, there is a lot to cover. I don’t think I need to explain to you why I love Kathryn and Michael so much as I will show you these pictures and you will realize exactly why. They fit my perfect client to a T. Michael and Kathryn are sweet, hilarious, fun to be around and so madly in love that anything and…

    VB Oceanfront Engagement | Casey & AJ

    Casey & AJ I’ve been having some great VB Oceanfront Engagement sessions lately! When I met Casey and AJ and learned they are first responders my thought went straight to their kids. I don’t know why! I imagined their children all proud and boasting about their parents and the community service they do every day. See, Casey is a police officer while AJ is a fireman. What a hot combination! They are incredibly giving towards each other and yet honest and complete. Their love for their family, friends and the community is palpable. Mix that with their love for their two pups, the open ocean and all things nautical and…

    The Attic at Waterman’s Wedding| Laura & Robby

    The Attic at Waterman’s Wedding in Virginia Beach There are parties and then there is full-on parties and I can tell you Laura & Robby’s wedding was THE party. Their sole purpose as they traveled to get married and have a beautiful Attic at Waterman’s Wedding in Virginia Beach was to relax, have fun and party all night. And so they did. I don’t think I’ve had a more relaxed couple than them. I barely heard about them during the planning process and when Laura said, all I want is to have fun, I didn’t really expect this much layback vibe. I’ll be honest, I was little taken back by…

How Mayumi & Stephen they met: Mayumi and Stephen met over the phone thanks to mutual friends. After cold symptoms canceled a friends’ get-together, Mayumi and Stephen decided the night was young and went to dinner together. The conversation lasted hours until the restaurant closed.…

    Virginia Beach Elopement| Sheila & Chandler

    A beautiful Virginia Beach Elopement has been in the works for some time now and I couldn’t have been more honored to have witnessed it. Sheila and Chandler have built a wonderful family. They have three children, including a newborn, who are precious and as gorgeous as their parents. As high school sweethearts, they understand each other and maintain a connection without words. I was so impressed by their silent communication, above all. Their ceremony was quiet and simple, focused mostly on the home they have built and the future that will hold. Their closest family and friends came to witness this long-awaited moment with support and love. They decided…

    Best of 2019 | Daissy Torres Photography

    Yay! The Best of 2019 is here! Here’s to another one of those “What a year has been!”, “What amazing blessings!”, etc. Do you get tired of those? well, I do not. If you rather sneak on the pictures instead, scroll down for awesomeness. The Journey 2019 seemed so strange! At the beginning of the year and as I was planning all those dreaded business goals, I wasn’t sure I’d meet any of those goals. I was down in booking and my social media presence sucked. The year went by so fast and all with incredible people and beautiful stories. With a total of 51 jobs, 20 of those weddings,…

    Norfolk Botanical Garden and Commune Norfolk Wedding

    Perfection at the Norfolk Botanical Garden and Commune Norfolk. I am so in love with Jenn, Ranard, and their family. I was honored to have met them as I documented Jenn’s sister’s wedding a couple of years back. Then, I didn’t know Jenn & Ranard’s personal story. Their love starts a long time ago. A whole 13 years together. On the ups and downs, they have stood by each other. When you spend so many years with someone, you get to accept, love, and support them. This beautiful truth is very much these two. They both showcase such a powerful connection with each other and with their family. I was…

    Norfolk Botanical Garden Proposal | Ricardo & Selene

    Wait until you see this Norfolk Botanical Garden Proposal! Ricardo have been planning to propose to Selene for a while now. He had plans to propose during one of their Mexico trips but that didn’t turn out. They’ve dated for 10 years and currently have a long distance relationship. That meant that planning this from afar required the assistant of some family members, some secrets kept and a lot of patience. With the help of Selene’s sister, a month worth of planning and almost being caught twice, he reached out to me to capture this important moment. Since I don’t get the chance to witness this exciting time often, I…

    Red Wing Park Session| Lauren & Shane

    Lauren & Shane’s Red Wing Park Session was a dream! Lauren & Shane really wanted a photo session, like really wanted one. Back in February, I had one of weirdest Facebook Contests. It was to post a favorite GIF or Meme about wedding planning. Whoever had the most likes on their post, would win a full engagement session completely free. Lauren & Shane worked really hard to win my GIF Facebook Giveaway and accumulated 270 likes on their GIF. That’s dedication! It is so much dedication, that they are not even engaged! I love how they simply wanted professional portraits done. Even with all those likes they weren’t the winners,…

    Kathryn & Michael’s Shifting Sands Wedding Their Wedding They got married at Shifting Sands on the beach. Their personalized vows were nothing less than I expected, witty and truthful, full of love and commitment. It was at this time that everything fell into place, nobody cared about how darn hot it was and every single guest, even the beach goers, stopped and appreciated their perfect love combination. Kathryn and Michael’s romantic and classic reception feel was one I totally loved. Their big selection of cupcakes, which I was promised and took a good dozen home, were deliciously made by The Sugar Plum Bakery. The full day was filled with everything I…

    Shifting Sands Rainy Wedding | Kaitlyn & Joe

    No weather could stop the Livermans from saying I do at Shifting Sands. What makes a Shifting Sands Rainy Wedding? Well, crazy weather with torrential rain and an unexpected tornado warning. That didn’t tamper Kaitlyn and Joe’s wedding at all, though. What could have been a major timeline disaster ended up being a magical and surreal night of dancing and celebrating love.   Unfortunately, due to the weather, their desire to have a beach wedding was not possible. All was not lost as we got a break in the weather and were able to do formals and some couple’s portraits by the beach side. They rocked the little time we…
