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 the road again. We were planning a sunset session at Chic’s Beach off Shore Drive in Virginia Beach and so the most idea weather was going to be completely clear for a beautiful sunset and warm, but with a nice breeze so we didn’t get overheated. Well, the Lord was gracious to us last Monday because we couldn’t asked for better weather and a more beautiful sunset (go ahead, skip down to the sunset photos and see what I mean)! It really was the perfect day for an Virginia Beach sunset engagement session.
When asked how they found us online, Alisa says she was scrolling through images tagged at their venue at 2am her time when she found ours and instantly texted Pat to tell him he had to check out our work. Though Pat was wondering why she was still awake at that time, Alisa assured him that point didn’t matter and he needed to go to our website right away. A quick message sent to us online, a three-way video call and a few emails later and they selected us to be their wedding photographers! We were so honored and are so excited to be returning back to Callawassie Island with them next April!
Although we hadn’t met in person before their session, as soon as we met, we all clicked instantly. Alisa & Pat feel like old friends and we’re so thankful for that bond with them. As we wandered around Pleasure House Point in the beginning of the session, we chatted about their wedding and their trip to Virginia Beach. Once it was time to change, we rushed them over to Chic’s Beach to catch the sunset over the Bay. Although the sunset was beautiful, it was the sky after the sunset that really did all the showing off for us (see below). After the session, we went out to dinner and enjoyed just hanging out with them and getting to know them better. It really was the perfect night with them. We’re so thankful for them.
Without further adieu, please enjoy Alisa & Pat’s Virginia Beach sunset engagement session!
We hope you enjoyed this beautiful sunset Virginia Beach engagement session! Pat & Alisa, we can’t wait for your wedding next April at Callawassie Island, SC!! 🙂
