Small Wedding at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront & The Attic at Waterman’s

Virginia Beach Fall Wedding and Reception Filled with Family, Florals, & Lots of Fun

I’m so grateful I had the opportunity to tag along with Kim and Justin for their gorgeous fall wedding while second shooting for Rebecca Burt Photography. I started out the day with Justin and his attendants at his home, while they got ready to head over to the church. After a short but sweet Catholic ceremony, everyone headed over to take some formal pictures by the beach. When photos with the family were wrapped up, Kim + Justin had some time to spend together on their own to get images with just the two of them.

Taking photos mid-day is not usually a photographer’s first choice because the sunlight is softer and more golden just before sunset and after sunrise. But I love that in the middle of the day, when there aren’t clouds, you can really capture the beautiful blue sky! Justin + Kim really prioritized having a lot of photos with just each other so they also made time for 15 minutes or so during the reception to get some gorgeous photos as the sun was setting. With a small guest count, it is easier to make time for things that are important to you without feeling rushed. Plus Kim had changed into her second(!) stunning gown of the day and the way it flowed in the wind NEEDED to be remembered. They both looked absolutely stunning and when they looked at each other, you could just feel how much they love each other.

And of course, we can’t forget the party! Even though this was in the midst of COVID and the couple’s guest list was small, they were still able to get down on the dance floor, party into the night, and have a blast with their closest friends and family. Everything about this day was absolute GOALS and I’m so grateful that I was there to help capture their story.
