Thank GOODNESS I met Erin. What a breath of fresh air, real to the core, colorful, beautiful person inside and out. I have adored her since day one. I met her at Echo and Jeff’s AWESOME wedding two years ago when I was pregnant and she had JUST had her third gorgeous child. I kept thinking, wow– she is a REALLY nice vendor…which is always awesome to come across in the wedding industry! She treated me so well and we kept in touch, this was back when she was doing hair and makeup so I referred her again to a couple more weddings that we got to work together and I loved seeing her every time.

Erin and I ended up talking all the time and she told me in her heart, she knew she LOVED photography and she wanted to pursue it. Of course I LOVED hearing this and I am so proud of how hard she works balancing three awesome children and running her new business, Erin Daniel Photography. People with a fire in their hearts and passion for learning and artistic expression are close to my heart 🙂 I was SOOOO glad when she asked me to shoot her and her handsome husband’s ten year anniversary session today! Austin is one of those guys who was so nice to me and willing to do whatever I asked..that I was confused and had to keep over-asking if he was sure. Basically, a dream. I LOVE guys like this hahaha!

They flirted, they laughed, they played. They ALSO rocked their original wedding attire– OH YEAH!!!!!! Who says you won’t wear your dress more than once? They never had a wedding and this was their portrait session. It may be 10 years later but it’s definitely not 10 years too late. LOVE YALL 🙂

The best part about these first’s the spot that they first met in Virginia Beach 🙂 That exact spot <3
