Amanda + Matt | Purple Sabot at Stony Point Wedding

Amanda and I go back…and I mean it, we go WAY back to growing up together!!!! Who knew the girl who shared the pain of being an Amanda in the 80’s and having so many other Amanda’s in class to get confused with┬áto would be MY bride some day, haha! And she’s not just any…

Staci + David | Pink + Blue Nags Head Jennette’s Pier Wedding

The weather scared us all week, and the forecast wasn’t looking wonderful for this day either. I had a lingering stressful feeling in my stomach knowing that this outdoor pier wedding could possibly have to be moved inside and it broke my heart for two reasons…obviously because my sweet Staci and David deserve that outdoor…

Jordan + Daniel | Chesapeake Engagements

It was love at first email, and then even more at first phone call, but it was LOVE…for Jordan and I, haha! Seriously, this girl means so much to me already and I haven’t even shot her wedding yet…and I only recently met her in person shooting these perfect engagements! I love brides that I…

Katie looks amazing…

Courtney + Bonn | The Oyster Farm on the Eastern Shore

Sometimes I get really emotional writing these, well, I usually do..because I just feel this beautiful connection to all of my clients.

Hannah + Tim | Suffolk Maternity

When I first met Hannah, I was SO thrilled– a wedding vendor I loved completely off the bat, at first sight and impression and she was as sweet as they come. As we grew together as business owners and worked harder and harder to make things happen for us, we found so much joy in…

Handling Inquiry Rejections | Seaside Sessions VIDEO BLOG

What have I gotten myself into!? This is just me in my super fancy home office, aka one of two bedrooms in our tiny little Kitty Hawk condo…and I share it with a toddler bed and baby crib. The beauty in this business is that some people need the fancy offices, and that’s okay! And…

2014 Year In Weddings! | Weddings

This one gets me..for two reasons. It sneaks up on me seemingly out of nowhere, and it brings me to absolute tears. I remember moments, sounds and feelings from these wedding days like they were yesterday, and because they were all SO VERY INCREDIBLE!!! I can’t even begin to tell you the sheer joy and…
