Historic Post Office Spring Wedding | Hampton Wedding Photographer | Ryan + Stephanie

Seeing Ryan and Stephanie together is like seeing two people who have been married for a long time…in fact, on their wedding day, they had already been married for a year and they wanted to celebrate with everyone who is near and dear to them! Foremost among their guests was sweet Ryleigh, their daughter, who is a symbol of how strong their relationship is - because let’s be real, if you can survive the newborn months together it says a lot about how much you can withstand! She has the biggest smiles and adores her mommy and daddy. I know she’s going to look back on the sweet wedding pictures when she is older, and that made it even more meaningful to capture the day.

I’m convinced that wedding at the Historic Post Office are stunning just because of the venue itself, and this spring day with all the blue and gray tones was no exception. The cherry blossoms were in full bloom for their sunset portraits and the rain stopped just in time to head outside for pictures after the ceremony. At the end of the day, Stephanie and Ryan wanted to have fun, enjoy the day, and spend time with their best friends. Their wedding was a representation of all that, and it was beautiful from beginning to end.

StitchFix vs. ThredUp...which one is better? | Personal

Part of the beauty in this blog is that I get to write not just about photography, but also about so much of my life…and some of the most popular I have written are the most surprising, like my blog on the best alternatives to Tieks! So here is my latest venture in trying new things so you can read about what I liked, what I didn’t, and what I’ll do in the future.

A few weeks ago, a friend was wearing an outfit that looked SO good on her, yet it was one I didn’t imagine her picking out for herself. When I asked her, she started raving about StitchFix and how her stylist had put together the perfect recommendations. I was hooked by the idea - I love a good, polished outfit but I am often unsure how pieces fit together, and I need a little help to make one piece of clothing look even more amazing by what I wear with it. With a $25 discount in hand from her affiliate link, I went online to sign up for my box…

Tupelo Honey Bridal Brunch | Virginia Beach Wedding Photographer

Tupelo Honey Bridal Brunch | Virginia Beach Wedding Photographer

It’s always fun to work on something creative other than weddings or family pictures, and it’s always an honor to partner with Tidewater and Tulle for a project! This fun bridal brunch styled shoot is for the Love It Up Town Center event happening this August. The purpose is to show brides how they can use vendors ONLY from Town Center in Virginia Beach to plan their wedding, from catering to day-after plans and more. A wonderful group of people came together to model for us, and since it involved free food they were more than enthusiastic about it ;)

I had never been to Tupelo Honey in Virginia Beach before, so I was blown away at the quality of food and the friendliness of the staff. Everything looked amazing and tasted even better. Our 4-year-old model wasn’t as excited about some of their fancy Southern food, so the manager quickly provided an amazing plate of pancakes for them. Just wait until you see his face :)
