January photo sessions are sometimes unpredictable and this one fit perfectly into that category. After checking the weather over and over there were no signs of rain or fog, but we had both. That did not stop these two from embracing each other on an early Saturday Morning at Burke Lake Park. Preston and Lyssa […]

Tiffany and Dave’s engagement session goes down in my book as one of my favorite sessions! I love how they chose the very location where they had their first date to take their engagement photos. City Center in Newport News, VA is usually a pretty busy place, but thankfully we were able to walk around […]

Engagement sessions at the beach are always my favorite. We explored Fort Monroe in Hampton, VA during Chuck and Jasmines engagement session. My absolute favorite part of the session was when a large Navy carrier passed behind these two as I was shooting. I found this so ironic, because Chuck is in the Navy! Talk […]
