Inn at Warner Hall Engagement Session

We are in love with this Inn at Warner Hall engagement session! Jack and Lacey are getting married at this gorgeous venue next November, and it is particularly special because it is where Lacey’s mother got married as well! The Inn at Warner Hall is definitely a gem; located on the waterfront plantation created by George Washington’s great-great grandfather, this historical location has an air of beauty and peace. From the beautifully decorated house to the magnificent sunsets, the views are incredible and such a gorgeous getaway from the everyday stresses of life. With makeup by Blush Tones, Lacey looked absolutely stunning in a flowing white dress and Jack looked smart as ever in a tailored blue suit. The photos, taken by the talented Luke & Ashley Photography, truly showcase how in love these two are, and we are wishing the best for these two in their upcoming celebrations!

Williamsburg Winery Engagement Session

There’s something so beautiful about the chilly weather, and we love the winter wardrobe in this Williamsburg Winery engagement session! Bridget and Patrick are getting married at the winery next fall and wanted to take their engagement photos at the same venue. They explored the gorgeous property, taking their portraits before heading to their old stomping grounds at William and Mary. They met when when Pat started law school at W&M three years ago, and now they’re planning the wedding of their dreams. They spent the whole session laughing and smiling, and we loved seeing how genuinely in love they are. Bridget found their photographer, the talented Raygan Michelle Photography, in our Vendor Guide! We just love connecting couples with the amazing vendors in the area and are so excited to share this session!

Sunset Yorktown Engagement Session

This beautiful golden light in this sunset Yorktown engagement session was only the beginning of this gorgeous shoot! Chelsey and Roderick were so relaxed behind the camera and you can see from the photos how much fun they had together! They were brought to Virginia because Rod serves in the military, and the historic Yorktown setting was a perfect backdrop for their shoot with Michael and Jasmine Photography. The day of their engagement session, the weather was crisp and warm with the most perfect warm light that photographed beautifully. These two are a perfect match, but their family is truly made complete with the addition of their Corgi-mix Roscoe! We are sending all of our best wishes to this beautiful couple!

James Bond Engagement Session

Ashley and Darius had a fun and flirty engagement session at Gershwin’s Restaurant in Downtown Norfolk with wonderfully soft lighting. The luxe look of setting was enhanced by their bold outfits; Ashley’s classic red gown and Darius’ handsome black suit added a glamorous feel to the shoot. Everything about this session was perfectly classic, from the sophisticated setting to the sweet smiles from the happy couple. Not only was Molly Lichten Photography able to capture some really beautiful, intimate moments between them, but they also exuded just the right amount of class and sass to bring their theme to life!

Dreamy Sandbridge Engagement Session

We absolutely love this dreamy Sandbridge engagement session. It has everything- gorgeous backdrops, soft lighting, and a sweet fur baby! Travis and Kayla have been together for eight years; a house and a puppy later, these two are getting ready to tie the knot in Virginia Beach next year! Sandbridge is a spot where Travis often surfs, but it is also a place where their love first bloomed, making it a perfect spot for their engagement photos. Their one year old puppy, Oakley, tagged along for some family portraits as well! The gorgeous lighting and tons of laughter made this a memorable shoot with Sweet Memories Photography.

Romantic Christopher Newport University Engagement Session

This romantic Christopher Newport University engagement session by Diana Gordon Photography is one of our favorites! How romantic is it to visit the place where a love story first started? Christopher Newport University is a special place in Elizabeth and Brendan’s relationship because it is where it all began! Both students, they first started their relationship during finals week at college! Starting a relationship during such a busy, stressful time just strengthened their relationship and helped them through the next struggle: a long distance relationship.While we know that long distance is tough, this couple was even tougher, and wasn’t going to stop their love. You can just see how much these two love, respect, and connect with one another!

Downtown Smithfield Engagement Session

This beautiful downtown Smithfield engagement session was full of vibrant color, brilliant architecture, and gorgeous settings for the happy couple! Jessica and Tyler have been together for a long time, and since Jessica has been a bridesmaid a few times, they were excited to finally be celebrating their love! Throughout the session with Fowler Studios, these two had the best time smiling, laughing, and posing the afternoon away. They are so in tune with one another, and you can see how authentic their love is in these photos. We are so excited for them to finally tie the knot this December, and hope that their huge smiles and sweet kisses are as perfectly captured as they were in this session!

Rustic Windsor Castle Park Engagement Session

Cassandra and Tyler are a match made in heaven in this rustic Windsor Castle Park engagement session! Hailing from Maryland, these two’s gorgeous photos show how passionate they are about each other. Tagging along for the ride are Ranger and Molly, their two sweet fur babies! The pups were great throughout the shoot captured by Ryann Winn Photography, even letting them place the beautiful engagement ring on Ranger’s nose! Rather than run around the park, they joined their mom and dad for a session full of glittering sunsets, weaving leaves in the vineyards and rustic red barns. The deck area provided a beautiful overlook of the lake, and the couple looked so comfortable in front of the camera. Cassandra and Tyler spent the evening laughing, smiling, and holding each other. Their casual clothing and bright smiles absolutely captured our heart!

Virginia Beach Oceanfront Engagement Session

Meet Sabra and Alex! This busy couple originally got engaged at Sandbridge Pier, so naturally a beach setting was perfect for their engagement session! The bride-to-be travels all over the country opening restaurants, and Alex owns his own sports training complex. With such busy schedules, it was a lovely pause to have a relaxing oceanfront engagement session with The Girl Tyler. There’s nothing quite like the beautiful cotton candy sky found only in a Virginia beach sunset, and these two looked completely comfortable in front of the camera. The fluffy clouds and gentle breezes provided beautiful details in the photos, and you can just see how much these two love one another!
