Williamsburg Anniversary Winter Session | Williamsburg Photographer | Rob + Lauren

I’ve known Rob and Lauren now for coming up on two years. I first photographed their engagement session just a few weeks after Willow came home (I couldn’t even tell them yet!), then their wedding took place last January on a beautiful day at Kiln Creek Golf Club. Now, over a year into marriage, they wanted to celebrate again with pictures and it felt like everything came full circle once again.

Rob and Lauren were so sweet during their engagement session when I first met them, but seeing them as husband and wife just made me realize how much more comfortable they are around each other (and in front of the camera!) than even just a couple years ago. They shared more looks between the two of them. They snuggled a little closer. They still didn’t shy away from kissing, and it’s obvious that their relationship has already grown stronger. When I asked the biggest lesson they have learned from the first year, they couldn’t tell me - mostly because it’s just been full of joy to finally live side by side every single day…

Colonial Williamsburg Fall Engagement Session | Williamsburg Wedding Photographer | Heath + Kate

Heath and Kate are both in the middle of huge transitions in their lives. Kate is moving, they have begun new careers, and of course, they are now planning both the wedding day and their marriage. One of the most important elements of staying sane during such big changes is maintaining a good sense of humor, and these two have done just that. From the first moment to the last kiss, both of them were laughing with each other in one glorious afternoon away from all that is happening in the 'real world.'

Colonial Williamsburg is the place in Hampton Roads most reminiscent of Charleston, the city they now both call home where they will be married in March. The fall colors were gorgeous, the plantation-style houses were elegant, and the sun set behind the trees in a beautiful way. It was the perfect time and the perfect place for Heath and Kate to celebrate their engagement and all that is to come. To say they are excited to begin their lives together is an understatement - can you tell by the smiles on their faces?! - and I know that day, and for many years to come, laughter and joy will be a huge part of their relationship...

Taylor and Cynthia are one of those couples who is totally relaxed around each other. From the beginning of their engagement session to the end, they were cracking each other up and having a blast - with tons of kisses peppered in between. The amazing thing is that they met less than a year ago, and yet in a few months they're going to be married! As Taylor pursues his dream to go to seminary, Cynthia will be by his side and together they will figure out life.

We met at Bassett Hall in Colonial Williamsburg on a beautiful spring evening, the sun just beginning to set beyond the Capitol Building. These two had me cracking up the whole time! They also brought their sweet yorkipoo Revely, who may have stolen the show just a little bit ;) Just one year old, he brought some fun and spunk to a beautiful night...
