Ashley and Mark celebrated their union with friends and family at the Virginia Beach Convention Center. The architecture at the convention center is very modern and the spaces lend themselves to some really unique contemporary photographs. But since Ashley really wanted some natural photographs taken outdoors as well, we used the little bit of greenery […]

My husband and I decided to take a weekend away before my busy season starts. We didn’t want to travel to far from home so we thought we would check out Chincoteaque island on the Eastern Shore. I love the outdoors so I really enjoyed touring nearby Assateague Island National Seashore. The highlight of the […]

The inside is reminiscent of old europe with stucco walls, vintage wooden doors and dramatic lighting. This was the perfect setting as Dominique and her family are from England. Adding to the ambience, Vincent […]
