What can I even say – the sweetest and most hilarious moments happened during this engagement session last night in Kill Devil Hills and these two are GOLDEN! The light was, too, and I wasn’t mad about that at all! Jessica and Rob don’t take life too seriously but they are seriously in love. I…

Tracey + Jesse | Manteo Engagements

Okay between the avocado socks, flossing and puppy love – this is too good. TOO GOOD. I loved spending time with Tracey and Jesse and I distinctly remember them being the ones to catch the bouquet and garter at Samantha and Nick’s Manteo wedding and the fact they are now my couple brings me so…

Shelbie + Taylor | Virginia Beach Engagements

In the beginning of my career, I met this sweetheart Shelbie in Key West at her sister Ashley’s wedding. I will never forget thinking how hilarious the two of them were together when the girls were getting ready and thinking how lucky I was to be around such a sweet group of people. When Shelbie…

Lauren + Nick | Nags Head Engagements

I know both of these wonderful humans from back home…one because he’s my cousin’s cousin and the other because she grew up on the same street as me 🙂 And together? They are SO incredibly sweet…the one thing I kept noticing and totally loving was how they kind of smile the same which is what…

Heather + Ben | Manteo + Nags Head Engagements

Holly + Tyler | Occoquan Engagements

Sarah + Brian | Kill Devil Hills Session

These two (wait, THREE!!) met with me by the sea in Kill Devil Hills at sunrise…not an easy task! Especially when you’re on a little vacation for Spring Break and your photographer should be letting you sleep in, hahaha! 🙂 I am SO thankful for you guys and I can’t wait to meet that sweet…

Kirsten + Chris | Kill Devil Hills Engagements

When someone is driving from out of town and not already on vacation for a full week, I am praying over and over the weather works out. Instead, I’m looking at this devastating forecast for a 2018 bride and groom and I can NOT even accept that it’s real until my husband Mike says, “no…

Kayla + Matt | Nags Head Engagements

From day one, I was wishing and hoping I would get to work with this girl and her fiancé, and my wish came TRUE…they’re all mine! 🙂 Kayla has a cheerful heart and the sweetest disposition, and she’s gorgeous to boot. I hadn’t gotten to talk to Matt yet but I knew if he loved…
