Sarah & Josh // Founder's Inn Virginia Beach Wedding Photographer

There are some days that are just MADE for weddings, and this was one of them! The weather was perfect, the trees were green, and there were still hints of blossoms all around.

Sarah and Josh were so relaxed on their wedding day, it was incredible! You could tell that they had both put a LOT of time and effort into it and yet, they were both calm and collected, just ready to be married. Theirs is a family full of veterans and active duty military, which added a special note to everything they did. Sarah was able to spend so much time with the special ladies in her life, that there was not one person who seemed stressed or tense! Meanwhile, Josh and his guys played around with swords while they waited for the biggest day of his life.

When it came time to recite the vows they had written to each other, though, they saw only the other; everyone else faded away as they stood in front of the water as the sun began to slowly sink, and they pledged their love to each other forever. It was perfect.

Later that night, I don't think they left the dance floor for a second! You could truly tell that Josh and Sarah love being with each other, and being a part of each other's lives.

Josh and Sarah, thanks for letting me in on just a little glimpse of your big, beautiful love story. I'm ever so grateful that I was able to be there, and I wish you only the happiest of memories forever. And many thanks to White Photography, for whom I was able to second shoot this incredible day!

My name is Maria, and I am a wedding and family photographer based out of Hampton Roads, Virginia, but I am always excited about traveling. I love families who truly enjoy spending time with each other and living life together. I love couples that are looking forward to their wedding day because they are so excited to finally be married to.
