A Coastal Engagement Session at Cape Charles Virginia

I shot an engagement session at a brand new place this weekend; Cape Charles Virginia! I love the places that this job takes me, and Cape Charles was the cutest little coastal town; such a lovely place to shoot photos!

I first met Abby and Trent when I did a couple’s session with them last year. They are so perfect together! Abby is a talented photographer herself, and since then she’s worked with me at several weddings. When she emailed me about their engagement and asked me to shoot their wedding I was thrilled! It’s always a bit intimidating for me to shoot for other photographers, but I’m honored to be the person to document their engagement and wedding day!

Abby’s dream was to take engagement photos on a marina, and so when she asked me about shooting at Cape Charles where her Grandmother lives, I was more than willing to make the drive down. The day I left started off beautiful and sunny and I had high expectations for the weather, but as I got close to Cape Charles I ran into a crazy thunderstorm; it was absolutely POURING! I was so afraid we would have to cancel our shoot but about 30 minutes before we started shooting the rain stopped, and the sun came out. The light was PERFECT for a golden hour session and I couldn’t believe it! We started off on a balcony of a cute hotel Downtown, and then made use of the gorgeous light at a few other locations before heading to the marina to finish off the evening.

Some of my favorites from Trent & Abby’s coastal engagement session!

I’m beyond excited for Trent & Abby’s wedding in May of 2020! After hearing bits and pieces of their vision for the day I know it’s going to be beautiful and unique, and just so them.

Congratulations Trent & Abby!

xoxo,
Jess
