Living in Hampton Roads Virginia has it’s many upsides throughout the year, but one of the downsides is that it can be difficult to find a beautiful fall photoshoot location.

When Cristen & CJ brought up the idea of going to a local park that they frequented throughout their relationship, we were all for it.

No matter the weather, it seems there is always something alive and blooming which makes doing photoshoots later in the year here extra easy. We loved this Norfolk Freemason engagement session with Tiffiny & Alex and had a […]

When we were planning Alisa & Pat’s engagement session, we had to pray for perfect weather. Not only were they coming in from out-of-town and out-of-country (Pat is living in Connecticut and Alisa is from Australia!), but we had a tight window of time that we could complete their session before they had to hit […]
