Is there really a better way to start your day than with a sunrise oceanfront engagement session?!

Spoiler alert: there isn’t!

Truth be told, I’m not really a sunrise kind of gal.

I much prefer sunset – because ‘aint nobody got time to be getting up before the sun.


But when Maria contacted me and said that she and Anthony really wanted sunrise photos on the beach – I knew we had to make it happen!

Sunrise Oceanfront Engagement Session

Maria and Anthony have been planning their wedding for a few years now.

Like most couples these days, their wedding plans got upended by Covid.

Instead of celebrating their wedding aboard a cruise ship in the Caribbean, everyone was on lockdown.

Whomp whomp.

I knew that I wanted to do something special for these two lovebirds, so we planned a time for them to come and do some engagement photos here in Virginia Beach.

Doing a sunrise oceanfront engagement session was a blast!

We had such a moody sky, with lots of clouds.

And when the sun came up, we were treated to pinks and orange ribbons in the sky.

Maria and Anthony, thank you for allowing me to capture some photos for you two (and your sweet puppy!).

Eric and I are so stoked to make all your wedding dreams come true when we sail in January!
