Historic Greenbrier Farms | Chesapeake, Virginia Wedding September 14, 2019 was all about Morgan and Mason. As Mark mentioned in last week’s blog, we met these two over a year ago before they hired us to do their engagement session at First Landing. We were so so happy when they met with us again earlier […]
Morgan and Mason – Mason and Morgan? Nahh. It’s weird how couples’ names have a certain ring to them, and gender is never the deciding factor. Kyle and Kevin? Nope, Kevin and Kyle. Katherine and Mark? Stop it. Mark and Katherine Johnson. Enter — Morgan and Mason. These two can’t be introduced without their two […]
Heather and Stephen are literal superheros. Not only did they plan a wedding while buying a house and moving (on top of continuing on with their normal lives), but they also had to scramble to find a new venue at the last minute!! They found out their first choice had been sold and would no […]
Hello all. Mark here. Jonathon Johnson and Renee Ambrose got engaged, predictably. Having witnessed her first meeting with his family (my family), I can safely say it was a done deal from the beginning. Renee says she’s not extra (she’s extra). Jon’s as low-profile as it gets. They say opposites attract, right? Balancing their healthy […]
We love Heather and Stephen! From the first time we Skyped with them, Mark and I knew it was meant to be, and we can’t wait for their wedding TOMORROW! Back in May, we met them over at Oozlefinch Brewery in Hampton for a few drinks before we went into Ft Monroe. While there, we […]

We met down at the end of the beach, close to Ft. Story, and frolicked around. Jack brought his guitar, Grace changed in a pop-up changing […]
A Downtown Norfolk, and Virginia Beach Oceanfront Engagement Session Ali loves dogs. It is known. Especially her dog, Remy. She comes out the gate with a spirit of brightness and warmth. Trevor is an undercover cat lover. He may seem reserved, but his humor is quick to punch through and meet yours. According to Ali, […]
I can’t say it enough- Allison and Samuel are perfect for each other. I basically died right after Allison asked Mark and I to photograph their wedding, because they are just so stinkin’ adorable. They are both laid back and just happy to be around each other. They make weird faces at each other and call each other random variations of the word “babe.”
Max wakes up too early. He’s always doing stuff like he’s soooooo coooool. Whatever. I’m tired. Sometimes, sleeping makes me tired, so I sleep it off. I think I might love sleep more than food, but only when I’m not eating. Eating makes me sleepy, too, and I love sleep, so that just makes food even better!
