We talked about several locations, but when Lauren and her momma saw Church Point Manor, they were sold on having Lauren’s bridal session there. Church Point Manor is a beautiful bed and breakfast in Virginia Beach, VA. off of Shore Drive. I have photographed weddings, and brides there several times, and it’s still one of my favorite locations for intimate weddings and bridal sessions. One of these days I am just gonna go and enjoy a couple of nights stay there just because! Every room is beautiful and although we did not get to use the bridal suite (which is amazing) because it was occupied…the room we had was just as beautiful I think you will agree and the grounds amazing.
Lauren, you were simply a stunning bride. You are beautiful inside and out and it was pure joy to capture these images and your sweet personality and be apart of your legacy. I wish I could post every single one…but these are just a few of my favorite photos and moments…
I love the moments getting ready
Second photograph of the day! Ahh. Window Light how I love thee.
Third and her momma’s favorite.
Classic beauty right here!
And the real Lauren was bound to show up! 🙂
The bibles are part of her legacy…Her mom’s baby bible that was carried when she got married, Laurens baby bible and her granddaddy’s pastoral book.
But these three… Princess One…Princess Two and the One who made Princess Two into a Princess…the older sister Meghan. 🙂 Her words. LOL.
Lauren, I know Herbert is smiling from Heaven, that you would include him in your special day. <3
I love bridal sessions for many reasons, but the most important one is that you get to take your time and enjoy the session without the rush of the wedding day, sometimes limiting the photos you are able to capture. Plus it’s a trial run on feeling pretty for your wedding day! So make sure you add bridal portrait to your wedding packages.
This was a beautiful day!
