Courtney and Mike are one of just a few wedding clients I have who actually live in the same city as me! So with predictions of Hurricane Florence making its way towards Virginia Beach, we decided to bump this engagement session up a few days, and boy am I glad we did! We had the most beautiful, cloudy, cotton candy colored sunset! Just minutes after meeting Courtney and Mike, these two felt like old friends. I know getting pictures taken can be intimidating, but there was such an effortlessness and ease with this sweet couple. A very common direction I give is to “nuzzle”, and I am always so pleasantly surprised at how well my guys pick up on that. Mike was so comfortable from the get-go with hugging, kissing, wrapping his girl in his arms and especially, nuzzling. I like to think that everything comes naturally because you’re essentially just cozying up with your loved one!
Courtney and Mike will be tying the knot next September at the lovely Lesner Inn in Virginia Beach. I am excited for a hometown wedding with one of my sweetest couples!
