Nicole & Josh, Married – Sandbridge, VA

I met Nicole and Josh via a referral from another photographer. I was on my way to visit Virginia Beach with my husband and a friend from Germany and just managed to schedule a client meeting with this lovely couple. It’s even more amazing since they’re also not local to Virginia Beach! We met at a local Panera and immediately, we clicked. It doesn’t make when you find out you share a mutual love for animals….specifically dogs!

Nicole and Josh have a passion for puppies just like me! They have two sweet pups – kindred souls I tell ya! They raise bees – yep, they’re beekeepers! In general, they’re patient, kind, and understanding people.

Nicole and Josh were married on Saturday, October 17. It was a gorgeous day for a wedding! Cool enough to need to snuggle up to her new husband, but warm enough for Nicole to be stunning in a gorgeous dress. Instead of flowers, Nicole made her own bouquets – complete with shells and fresh lavender! They smelled amazing!! This backyard beach wedding was so much fun and I’m so honored to have been a part of it!

Congratulations to Nicole and Josh! Warm wishes for a long and blessed marriage!

Vaughn Family

The Vaughn Family is one of my favorite families to photograph. Mostly because Aidan always wants to help out and learn :-)

I also just enjoy their company – Sarah is a true friend that I know I can count on when I need someone for advice, laughter, or just chat with about random things. Mark can pal around with Billy which is super awesome for Sarah and me. Aidan is my little buddy and loves when we spend anytime together. He gets sooooooooooooo excited even if it’s just for 5 minutes. Isaac, well, he’s my newest buddy. He’s just 3 months old and sweet as can be!

I get to spend more quality time with this sweet family in December when Isaac turns 6 months! I can’t wait for a sweet Christmas session with this awesome family!!
