Flipper McCoys Arcade Styled Shoot

This Flipper McCoys Arcade styled shoot is full of whimsy and a personal touch! Everything about this shoot, from the arcade to the passion for the Virginia Beach area, was designed to showcase a story- the story of how Misty Saves the Day and her husband fell in love. The models had a blast exploring the gaming area and the pier, with each shot full of laughter and joy. When we asked Misty about how her love story inspired this shoot, she gave us a little peek into her process! Check it out below!

Colorful Southwestern Styled Shoot | Jennette’s Pier

This southwestern styled shoot is a little home away from home for lovers of all things funky! If you’re looking for a beachy venue but a different kind of theme, the combination of blending patterns, textures and bringing things to life with bright and bold colors makes this shoot one for the books. This Southwestern concept brought a mix of modern and vintage to the table; in fact, the table’s three different rugs all brought a bit of personality to the shoot! From the cowhide rug to the cacti, you almost can feel the southern breeze on your skin. With a popcorn bar instead of a cake and a retro-modern lounge area, these unique details are what truly bring these photos to life. With salt in your hair and a bright floral bouquet in your hands, it’s hard to feel anything less than radiant. Check out more of this unique, fun styled shoot captured by Amanda Hedgepeth Photography below!

Top Golf Virginia Beach Rehearsal Dinner

This fun and unique Top Golf Virginia Beach rehearsal dinner is the perfect inspiration for couples who want their dinner to be a little different! Top Golf is an awesome venue for a rehearsal dinner or groomsmen dinner, or even for the golf-obsessed ladies! Instead of renting out a restaurant, this couple chose a space that is both fun and affordable, as well as makes the groom feel just as important as the bride. You don’t have to be a golf fanatic to enjoy this space, however, it’s a fun place for anybody to enjoy, regardless of experience! The collection of local vendors created a relaxed but polished atmosphere complete with floral arrangements, bright green baked goods, and wonderful lighting. Check out more of this styled shoot below!

Hollyfield Manor Friendsgiving Styled Shoot

From the cozy feeling of home to the expert details provided by numerous local vendors, this Friendsgiving Styled Shoot has enough charm to go around! If you’re like us and just can’t get enough of the fall season, you will love the details in this styled shoot. Just Dandy Events decided to provide their intern, Lauren Windham, with the opportunity to create a gorgeous styled shoot as their final assignment, and we are in love with how it turned out! This Kate Spade inspired, fall-filled photo shoot emphasized the importance of tradition with a modern twist. The inspiration was “copper mixed with cranberry and ivory, and a little neutral with a little sparkle”, and we love the meeting of Southern charm and glam gold pieces. The rustic setting of Hollyfield Manor provided the gorgeous chandelier and fireplace, a perfect background with tons of character. The superstar lineup of vendors helped bring the vision to life, from the dark wooden tables to the deliciously detailed cake. This shoot will give you the warm, fuzzy feeling of gathering around the Thanksgiving table with your loved one!

Marbeled Elegance | Hampton Roads Rising Tide Society Styled Shoot

In a collaborative effort, various members of the Hampton Roads Rising Tide Society joined together to create this elegant styled shoot! We absolutely love the bright, brilliant gemstone hues in this shoot; from the deep purples to the teals, everything truly shines. The vision behind this shoot was the concept of introducing the non-traditional to a traditional house that has been around for years upon years. Two elements that truly shine are the bits of grey marbling and crystal. By taking two traditional elements and introducing them to the non-traditional (through the color pallet of chartreuse, teal, olive, and plum), something truly special was created! The bride was styled in a beautiful Luna wedding gown made by Jillian Fellers with silk chiffon inspired by 1930’s glamour. This beautiful traditional gown was then paired with a non-traditional statement piece.

Overall, the marriage of traditional pieces with new and unique options helped to show couples that just because your venue is vintage, you don’t have to stick to a vintage theme!  Audrey Rose Photography perfectly captured all of these glittering details and cascading florals. Check out all the gorgeous touches below!

Bohemian Eastern Shore Styled Shoot

This gorgeous bohemian Eastern Shore styled shoot was inspired by many different elements: the free-spirited nature of the ocean helped bring to life this bohemian dream, and the pops of color brought the relaxed theme to life. Alexis and Brian live in a large area, within the hustle and bustle of a heavily saturated military location, and wanted a more secluded spot for their styled shoot. The collaboration with Andrew and Tianna Photography, tranquility of the setting and the beautiful jewel-tone color accents helped them truly celebrate their love at this hidden gem in the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Virginia Beach Coastal Bridal Session

We are absolutely loving this beautiful Virginia Beach bridal session! Bridal sessions are a wonderful way to get some extra portraits before the wedding, and a great way to test your hair and makeup trial! This styled session was inspired by the simple, yet profound nature of the sea, and the beautiful bride showcased exquisite florals, delicate makeup, and sweet up-do. The gorgeous bride wore a ruffled gown barefoot and carefree on the beach, and her bouquet was made by the wonderful Kathy Forrest Design. It has beautiful greens with a cascading feel with flowing ribbons and saturated colors, and the whimsical nature of the bouquet incorporated both beach and garden details. Her sweet updo was perfected by Hair by Stephanie B, and we love how it shows off her natural makeup by Dhalia Edwards. The bride’s natural beauty was only enhanced by the coastal views of the ocean, and we are loving the intricate coral and seashell details! All of these amazing details were perfectly shot by Elizabeth Friske Photography.

Elegant Boho Beach Styled Shoot

This elegant boho beach wedding styled shoot opened the doors of creativity! It allowed Shamira of Savy Wedding and Event Planning to put her whimsical touch into full action. Here’s what Shamira says inspired her:

“Typically when you think of beach or bohemian, elegance is the furthest thing from your mind. Our goal in this shoot was to show brides that you can bring touches of elegance to any atmosphere. Keeping in tune with the carefree spirt of the beach, we were able to create a breathtaking experience.  We were also able to keep true to bohemian culture by cultivating vintage and repurposed items.”
