Yorktown Engagement Session

Logan and Victoria are originally from Jacksonville, and after the navy brought Logan here, his future bride naturally followed! They have known each other for seven years, and after about two years of dating, Logan popped the question at a Christmas tree farm last November. They wanted to get some engagement photos in before Logan was deployed again, and the wonderful Brooke Waldroup Photography took these amazing shots in Yorktown.

Yorktown Engagement Session on Let's Wed Hampton Roads

After meeting up at the Moore House, they headed over to Read Street to take some pictures. Although it was a sweltering day in the Virginia sun, the day was full of laughs, smiles, and lots of “I love you’s”! Their love for one another radiated out of them the whole day; we especially love the shots of them dancing! You can see how much fun they have with each other through each twirl and dip. Another adorable thing about this couple; they don’t hold hands, they simply link a few fingers. They said that it is their “thing”- how cute is that! Logan is now deployed again, and we are sending all of our best wishes to him and Victoria!

Norfolk Arts District Engagement Session

Kacee and Ryan’s Norfolk Arts District Engagement Session was full of vibrant colors and lots of laughter! This fun couple’s personality shined in their photos by Jessica Ryan Photography. The Norfolk Arts District is known for its passion and creativity, so Kacee and Ryan fit right in! The first half of their session, the bride-to-be wore a fun pair of overalls and colorful vans, while her groom wore bright red shorts for a pop of color of his own! The second half of the session, they decided on a more formal look. Kacee truly shined in a beautiful gold dress, and Ryan cleaned up nicely in a blue button down. The soft lighting added to the beauty of the Neon district and we love how the colorful backgrounds show off the couple’s unique style.

Windsor Castle Park Engagement Session

We’re exciting to feaure Tiara and Nathan’s Windsor Castle Park engagement session!  The rustic setting, beautiful textures of the wood and nearby trees offered a picturesque setting for Ch & Sh Fredericks Photography to capture the loving personality of this couple. We are absolutely loving the details in this session; Tiara’s dazzling opal engagement ring, a cozy flannel blanket, and a handmade succulent monogram (a gift from Tiara’s grandmother that served as an adorable prop). The rich colors in the photos are only highlighted by the genuine smiles and obvious love between these two!

East Beach Engagement Session

Summer is the perfect season for a breezy East Beach engagement session! There’s just something about being by the water that makes us feel relaxed and happy, so we are absolutely loving this dreamy engagement session by Luke and Ashley Photography. Bailey and Brock decided to have their engagement session on the beach and the beautiful scenery made for some amazing shots. Looking at these photos, you can almost taste the salty air and feel the sea breeze on your skin. You can truly see the love between these two, and we love the shots of the couple holding hands by the sea!

From the gorgeous textures of the sea and sand to the beachy jewelry, we can’t get enough of this session. The navy and white outfits give us a nautical feel and we love Bailey’s stunning rose gold engagement ring and Brock’s timeless watch. The colors of the florals, the beach grass, and the reflections off the water all created beautiful backdrops for Bailey and Brock’s shoot!

Holly Ridge Manor Engagement Session

Kim and Jordan’s Holly Ridge Manor engagement session is the picture of classic elegance. The crisp white color of the house helps the classic combination of clothes (khaki’s and a polka dot dress from stitchfix.com!) truly pop. The beautiful green trees in the background gives these photos a summery vibe, and you can’t go wrong with a white picket fence! We are loving the outdoor shots of Kim and Jordan just looking at one another; you can tell how deeply these two care about each other.

Amanda Manupella Photography captured this stunning session and had this to say about the couple: “She quietly listens when Jordan speaks. He holds her hand with such contentment…I instantly knew they were the type of people that would grow old together.” The close up on Kim’s ring is absolutely gorgeous, and the use of florals in the shoot was spot on! We loved being able to watch this couple connect and celebrate their engagement!

Norfolk Neon District Engagement Session

Alyssa and Ben’s Norfolk Neon District engagement session captured their fun spirit perfectly! With a wedding planned in St. Lucia, they wanted a completely different, alternative feeling for their engagement shoot. This urban setting certainly did the trick! The amazing textures of the old buildings combined with the crawling vines and unique vibe of the area helped the couple to shine with their own distinct style in their photos by Valerie Demo Photography. Alyssa’s flowing dress photographed beautifully, and at sunset they moved to the Larchmont area of Norfolk for some beautiful pictures in a fresh, green setting. Alyssa and Ben had a fun, funky shoot that truly captured the love and laughter of this couple, and we can’t wait to see their beautiful wedding this fall!

Historic Yorktown Engagement Session

A love story ten years in the making, Laura and Jonathan have a tale for the ages. They dated briefly when Laura was a senior in high school but time pulled them apart. Six years later, Laura was preparing to move to Italy to be an Au Pair when her high school sweetheart popped back into her life. In the ultimate romantic gesture, Jonathan drove from North Carolina to Virginia to surprise Laura before she left, and when she opened the door she found Jonathan on her doorstep with a bouquet of flowers and a simple message: She was the “one that got away”, and he had never stopped loving her. They quickly realized how strong their connection was and the strength of their love helped Laura decide to cancel her trip to Italy to build a life with Jonathan.

A decade after their first date and three years after their second first date, this beautiful couple became engaged. At their engagement shoot around Historic Yorktown and Yorktown beach, the preppy vibe helped this couple show off their fun, playful personalities. Meredith Ryncarz Photography captured the loving spirit of this couple in stunning detail!

Fort Monroe was the perfect backdrop for their session with the variety it has to offer. From the beach to brick buildings and moats, their session was an adventure beautifully captured by Crystal Belcher Photography.
