Kirstyn and Andy are the type of couple you can’t help but love! Their smiles are genuine, their laughs are contagious, and their dog Abbey is the sweetest thing! The pair has been through a lot, but their positive attitudes speak otherwise. Earlier this year, Andy was in a terrible motorcycle accident that resulted in many serious injuries and broken bones. Kirstyn stayed by her husband’s side and lived at the hospital for an entire month as they waited for answers. I can only imagine the sleepless nights and emotional exhaust. Now, five months after the accident, Andy is on a long road of rehabilitation to recovery, but his best friend is there for him “for better or for worse.” This was quite an inspiring session! On a separate note, I love when couples bring pets to sessions, but when they bring flower necklaces for their pets to wear…be still my heart! I about died when I saw the perfect, Abbey-sized necklace Kelly Gish created for this session! And Abbey even sat and smiled for a photo! On another note, Kirstyn is a talented wedding photographer!

Tram and Dante are a pair of Virginia Beach locals who met me at First Landing State Park last week, looking sharp and fashionable…my kind of couple! It was a calm spring day, perfect for engagement portraits! The two will be married at the Museum of Contemporary Art in September.

This love story started at a fraternity toga party years ago. Last weekend, Cassidy and Madison celebrated their wedding festivities at the Historic Manor House at King’s Charter in Virginia. Charming details fill each room of the quaint little manor house, making it the ultimate cozy spot for a wedding. Some of my favorite details from the day include a topaz heirloom ring that Cassidy wore as her “something blue,” an elegant lace-kissed wedding dress, powder blue bridesmaid dresses, and an intimate garden that made for a romantic and quiet ceremony venue. At the reception, guests could make their own fajitas and satisfy their sweet tooth by visiting a quirky candy bar. This wedding was quite unique and a ton of fun! Congratulations again you two!
