About Us

Hi there and thanks for stopping by! We are Judith & Eric Soule a husband/wife wedding photography team who bring joy, laughter and FUN to your wedding day!
We are licensed and insured photographers working in Virginia Beach, serving Hampton Roads and beyond. But we’ve got the travel bug and would LOVE to follow you two wherever the wind may blow (ask us about some of the cool places we’ve gotten to go photograph!).

Judith

Classy, sassy, and a little smart assy – just a few of the words Judith would use to describe herself. Since starting the business in 2009, Judith has made it her mission to not only take amazing images for her clients, but also to educate and inspire other photographers through teaching. With a little bit of a potty mouth, Judith strives to be joyful in whatever she is doing – especially when we get to break out the margaritas and lime!

Eric

As you may have guessed, the second in command is a huge Star Wars nerd. Boba Fett is Eric’s favorite, and he’s just waiting for the day when he can purchase the full replica costume for Halloween. Or… you know, for any day really.

When he’s not photographing with his wife, Eric teaches at an Automotive College. He really enjoys working with students and getting to help them learn a trade.

On the off chance that he has a free weekend, Eric enjoys working in his giant home garage, and practicing baseball with the three kids.

“The Shrimpies”

These three can sometimes fight like cats and dogs, but look out if they are all playing nicely together and getting along… they turn into a triple threat!

Wesley is the oldest, and an aspiring vocalist, singing in the All City Choir, and even being ranked the Top Tenor in Hampton roads. He has a deep love for the wizarding world of Harry Potter, and wishes it were really an option to attend Hogwarts.

Jett is our middle child, and even though he is taller than mommy now, he is our affectionate love-bug. Jett is pretty passionate about electronics and computer coding, and currently aspires to be rock star baseball player.

Mara is the youngest, and definitely daddy’s little princess! She is into all things pink and girly, and unicorns are her current obsession! Mara has recently taken up playing the ukulele, and loves making up “songs” to play for different members of the family.

Having your photos taken isn’t something that you should dread! We believe that if it’s not fun, then we shouldn’t be doing it.
And if it’s something that we have to do, how can we make it fun?  This philosophy has made it so easy to connect with clients and create those real, genuine, authentic, joyful images!  We specialize in taking awesome portraits of people who don’t like having their pictures taken, and guarantee a great time!

My fiancée and I just had an amazing engagement photo shoot with Judith! She made us so comfortable, came out to our favorite place and made the whole process a BREEZE!! Can’t say enough about how wonderful Fresh Look Photography is! Thanks so much again!

Christina & Stephanie

couple in love“Judith is a trip! She has taken both our wedding pictures and our maternity pictures. So, what does it say that, after she put up with us for the wedding and we enjoyed her work, we asked her to come back for the belly shots? She’s got a great attitude, likes to laugh and really makes us comfortable with ourselves in front of the lens. She works to make her pictures show our attitude and feelings, and she brings our personality to life instead of just displaying a color facsimile of who we are.”

Heather & Jared

Judith was so fun and easy to work with. As a west coast natives recently relocated to Norfolk, we had no idea who to go to for our engagement photos. We by absolute luck met up with Judith at one of the local bridal shows and completely fell in love with her style and personality. Almost instantly Judith made us feel right at home and as if we’d known her for years. Her style classic yet fun and flirty. She truly knows how to bring out the “most beautiful you” in a photo. I honestly can’t say enough wonderful things about Judith and her work. If you are on the fence about your photographer and unsure of who to trust to capture your special day, please put your worries to rest, take the leap of faith and know that Judith will have your back 110% of the way. I promise you will not be disappointed.

bride and groom picturesWorking with Judith and her team was a special experience because she is a close friend. She helped us capture our engagement, my bridals, and our wedding. She was easy to meet with and talk to about shot ideas. She helped us find a location for a perfect Fall engagement session. Her response time was within two weeks for getting us photos. She surprised us with sneak peeks as she worked on the images. She was professional on the day of the wedding, and she was much more than a photographer. She made sure we were happy and that we were truly having the wedding (and photos) that we really wanted. Her main assistant was very supportive of Judith and helped to make us all laugh and give “real” smiles. I would recommend Judith to anyone looking for a great photographer who focuses on the details and emotion in her photos. Her pricing is honest, and her dedication to the final product is something that is appreciated by an anxious bride.

Frequently asked questions

When Should We Schedule Our Session?

Currently we are booking 3-4 weeks out, so as soon as you know you want to take some pictures, let’s start planning a rockin session! We recommend scheduling your portrait session for a weekday, Monday through Thursday. The reason for this is that any location we choose to take pictures at will be much less crowded on a weekday.

If you are interested in doing a weekend session, we do take on a limited number of Friday/Saturday/Sunday sessions, and an additional fee will apply.

We Aren’t Photogenic – Can You Help?!

 We’ve heard that from so many people, and honestly, we don’t believe it’s true at all! You just haven’t had the right portrait experience yet, and we are here to help guide you every step of the way.

We specialize in bringing laughter, joy and FUN no matter what (or who) we are taking pictures of. Through our easy style of shooting and natural, fun poses, we make sure you have a blast during the session!

How Do We Reserve Our Date?

 We just need the retainer and signed contract to reserve your date and time, then we will be ready to rock and roll!

Where to Shoot

 If you can give us an idea of what type of setting you are interested in, we can show you samples of sessions that we’ve done in that location.

Here are a few options to get your gears going:

  • Uptown City (historic neighborhood, rooftop views, etc)
  • Urban (colorful murals, city streets, graffiti, etc.)
  • Natural / Organic (woodsy, open fields, lakes, etc.)
  • Beachy (under the pier, sea grass, dunes, etc)
  • Garden (parks, gardens, etc.)
  • Vineyard/Brewery (winery, local brewery, etc)
  • Coffee Shop/Bookstore/Library

What if it rains?

That’s why God invented clear umbrellas! Seriously though, don’t let cloudy skies or a little rain put a damper on your session. Cloudy skies are actually the best for taking soft, evenly-lit portraits!

Bad weather is not a reason to cancel the session, unless the conditions could be damaging to clients or camera gear. If we do happen to have bad weather, we will just improvise and get a little creative. That could mean getting under a shelter or finding another alternative location to capture your memories.

Do You Offer Destination Sessions/Weddings?

Heck yeah we do! While Judith & Eric are based out of Virginia Beach, we love serving clients all around the world! Travel costs are dependent on the location but typically include airfare, hotel and transportation.

Contact us for specific rates and let’s pick an epic location to make amazing images for you and the ones you love!

What to Wear

Here is a {LINK} to a blog of ideas for what to wear during your session. Don’t feel like you are restricted to white shirts and blue jeans, color and patterns look awesome in pictures! We recommend bringing a second outfit to change into 1/2 way through the session.

I usually suggest starting with something a little nicer (like a long, flowy dress and button up/slacks) and then changing into something more laid back (jeans/tee shirt, etc).

If you are interested in using the services of a professional wardrobe stylist, please let us know and we’d be happy to refer you to a lovely stylists!

What Happens After the Session

Once we are finished photographing the session, we sprinkle our magic glitter sauce on your images (don’t worry, no images are harmed in this process).

We will have you over to our home studio for a portrait reveal and ordering session. At that time you will receive your digital images, but can also purchase keepsake prints, canvas wall collections, or heirloom album.

Average Turnaround Time

We get it – waiting is hard! That’s why we guarantee to have your portrait session images back within a week (whoot whoot!).
But if we’re being honest, it usually it only takes a few days. And we usually have a sneak peek up to pique your excitement within 48 hours!

For our wedding clients, we offer the same kick-awesome service – your full wedding gallery will be available for viewing about a week after your wedding!

How Many Images Do We Get?

The actual number of images you receive can vary based on so many things, but don’t worry. We will make sure that you receive all the awesome ones! During the session/wedding day we take tons of images so we can fully capture the story. During editing we only eliminate test shots, duplicate images, missed focused shots, etc.

Do You Edit All the Images?

Absolutely! Each and every image that you receive has been hand-edited, one at a time, without any batching to ensure the highest level of optimization.

Basic editing is included (color, saturation, exposure and sharpness, etc as needed), but additional retouching can be added on to any image.

Select images will be changed to Black and White (at the photographers discretion), but we encourage you to let us know if there is a particular photo you’d love to have converted. We would be happy to help with that!

What Rights Do We Have to the Images?

Every client will receive a lifetime print release that gives you the right to reproduce the images for personal use up to 8×10 portrait sheets. So you can use them for to create prints, share on your social media and with family and friends, etc.

Commercial use is not allowed (unless negotiated in advance).

The photographer will always retain copyright of the images.

Digital Files vs. Printed Artwork

 You’ve just invested quite a bit of money in having custom portraits made for you and the ones you love.

Doesn’t it make sense to invest in heirloom products to show off how cute y’all are?!

I mean, it would be a shame for all that gorgeousness to live on your hard drive and never see the light of day!

We recommend ordering prints/products through your photographer because we offer a lifetime guarantee on all of our products. We only work with professional print labs and deliver archival, heirloom quality keepsakes that you can enjoy for years to come.

What Do You Offer In Terms of Physical Products?

We are pleased to provide heirloom albums in 8×8 – 12×12 sizes, keepsake prints and gallery wall options, traditional museum style or framed canvas wraps, digital files with print release, and much more.

Products are packaged at a discount, but are also offered à la carte.
