John and Abby- Hampton Roads Wedding Photographer

Its funny to me how many of you have commented on the little preview I posted this weekend noting that the girl in that picture looked veeeeery familiar to another face you’ve seen on the blog before! Last year my sweet friend Megan got married, and now its her sister’s turn! I’m already excited for John and Abby’s wedding for a bunch of reasons, but mainly because I know it will 100% reflect them as a couple and their relationship. So many times people pick locations or elements of their wedding just because they’re pretty or convenient, which is totally fine, but I love when a couple has a location that is meaningful to them and can turn it into the perfect place to celebrate with family and friends. John has been going to the same camp since he was 8, and in Abby’s words, “he’s just never left!” He has a lifetime of memories at this place, and I think its so fun that they get to spend their big day at a place so familiar and comfortable to them! He and Abby get to work together at this camp year round and have put so much of their lives into this place. It was so fun getting a tour of the property and seeing the spots they loved the most and the places that would be filled with their guests in just a few short months! Can’t wait for September! :0) img_1226img_1246img_1254img_1286img_1377img_1389img_1430img_1469img_1550looove this next one! img_1692img_1700img_1735definitely the favorite :0) img_1740img_1748img_1813one of their (many!) little projects around the property! John and Abby primarily work in the kitchen, and Abby was telling me how nice it is sometimes to be able to come outside and get dinner right from their little garden! img_1848Happy Monday!
