Samantha & Gabe

First Landing State Park, 2500 Shore Dr, Virginia Beach, VA 23451, USA
Meet Samantha and Gabe. 

Let me preface by saying I love these two. I met Samantha at the wedding of another client. I tell you out of honesty that it is truly humbling to be chosen to photograph weddings and engagement sessions. The task of photographing a wedding and an engagement is a very big one and one I do not take lightly. It is an honor to be the person responsible for photographing such a major event in a couple's life.

Usually the engagement session is where clients get to see how I work, but Samantha and Gabe were able to observe me while in the bridal party of their friends who married back in September. I loved that wedding (will be sharing the photos I loved from that wedding in a future post!) and I fell in love with Samantha and Gabe when I first met them. They have a very relaxed, yet organized feel to them.  So when Samantha contacted me to say they wanted to hire me, I was elated. 

Samantha and Gabe discussed their vision for an engagement session with excitement when we met  at Starbucks (meeting over coffee is literally my favorite kind of meeting ever). They wanted a secluded beach location, at sunset, and for the look to be light and airy. Samantha even had photos of a specific session she loved, which is perfect because I'm totally a visual person (I'll tell you now I love when clients give me a visual of what they're wanting). At their session I was laughing the entire time. Gabe was hilarious and Samantha was stunning. Working with couples like this remind me of why I love working with engaged couples. There's a beauty in couples who are engaged and about to be married. They have a relentless love. 

Samantha and Gabe, I cannot wait to photograph your wedding day in all its gloriousness!

Leave a comment below to tell me which are your favorite. =)
