It’s always an honor to photograph a newborn baby! I love babies! Anyway…. Angela & Jon’s son Parker was born on April 2nd, 2011, and I shot these on April 7th, 2011. Just 5 days old, and I got to do this little guy’s first formal photos. I’ve known Angela and Jon for a few years now. The photos above are just a few from the session! The back story is in the paragraph below.

I shot Angela & Jon’s Wedding back in the fall of 2009, and it was just a GREAT wedding. JIC you’re curious, here’s the blog post from their wedding which was held at Eastern Shore Chapel in Virginia Beach, then the reception was at the Westin Town Center Hotel also in Virginia Beach. Here are some of their wedding photos

Reanne & Julio Married 4-2-2011 at Norfolk Botanical Gardens

I had the pleasure of doing the wedding photography for Reanne and Julio at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens who were married on April 2nd, 2011! The weather on Saturday was pretty crazy (even for Virginia!) and the wedding ceremony had to be moved from the Perennial Gardens to just outside Baker Hall under the overhang because of the heavy rain showers that kept moving through. Some quick and professional work by the Norfolk Botanical Gardens staff made the move extremely painless! No inordinate delay at all!

It was a great bilingual wedding ceremony followed by some EXTREMELY fast family formals so we could get them all done before dark and in between the rain showers. I spent some time with the wedding party as a whole then on to just Reanne and Julio by themselves (keeping close to cover in case we got another deluge) and into their reception they went.

Blue Steel Lighting Design did a great job doing the up lighting and strategic pin spots to turn Baker Hall into a pretty magical looking space for the reception. Creative Catering of Virginia also did a wonderful job with food, drink, decor and all that other good stuff! Reanne & Julio, their bridal party, family and friends all had a great time!

Enjoy the little sneak peek, and there will be more on the blog when I’m finished editing this wedding! 🙂

I had the pleasure of shooting Reanne & Julio’s engagement photos on March 18th at the Norfolk Pagoda Gardens! What a great little place just tucked away downtown to do just about any kind of portraits. Plenty of space and lots of interesting background scapes. (Plus a great sunset lookout point except for all the cranes and buildings across the Elizabeth River of course) Reanne & Julio are getting married early next month at Norfolk Botanical Gardens and I’ll be photographing their wedding too! Here’s a few from their engagement session:

Danielle & Chad Married 3-12-2011 Williamsburg VA

Danielle and Chad were married March 12, 2011 at Kings Way Church and their reception was held at The Settlement at Powatan Club House both in beautiful Williamsburg, Virginia. I was the lucky guy who was chosen to do their wedding photography and I can say after looking over their coverage briefly from last night that it was one GORGEOUS wedding!

I just picked a couple photos and put them together quickly in a small collage. From the prep time, to the ceremony, to the fireworks during the first dance, and all the crazy partying at the reception, it was a wonderful evening. The bubbles and HUGE sparklers for their exit were a great send off as well!

Kings Way Church was awesome, beautiful church, very relaxed, and fantastic vantage points for photography without anyone noticing I was there. The Settlement at Powatan Club House was REALLY awesome! I especially loved “the man cave” which is where I did the photo of Danielle on the left above. (there’s LOTS more from that little 5 minute sequence).

So, enjoy the sneak peak. I’ll have a bunch more on the blog when I’m done editing this great wedding! Congrats to Danielle and Chad! 🙂

Update to this post: Here’s a bunch of photos from this great wedding on my blog click here for more photos of Danielle and Chad’s Williamsburg Wedding

Amanda & Sean Married 2-26-2011

I just got back from Amanda & Sean’s lovely wedding at Lawson Hall in Virginia Beach! It was a pleasure being their wedding photographer and I just wanted to show one image now as a little “sneak peek”. What a great wedding!

Outdoor ceremony in a heated tent with reception to follow in the brand new wedding venue Lawson Hall. Skylar and Margaret of Lawson Hall Events did a great job! I highly recommend this new venue. It’s got A LOT of personality and it is a DREAM for a wedding photographer that shoots the way I do.

Congratulations Amanda & Sean!

Here’s an update! I’ve finished editing their photos, and you can view more from this Lawson Hall Wedding by clicking here to view them!
