Virginia Beach Wedding Photographer - Rainy Day Elopement
"When I follow my heart it leads me to you."
Shelby and Jeramie had a year long engagement and planned on having a wedding to celebrate the start of their lives together. She was living in Florida and he was in Virginia, in between travelings for missions with the Marine Corps, When they realized he would be transferred across country, they decided to elope in Virginia and have a small family celebration before moving together to California.
I chatted with Shelby on the phone a few times and we traded emails to plan a lovely outdoor ceremony and photo session on the day they tied the knot. Unfortunately, our well laid out plans were scrambled by some unexpected events and then some bad weather. They ended up having a small courthouse ceremony without any professional photos. I very much wanted to capture some gorgeous images for these two though, to commemorate their official union. Even though rain was in the forecast, I suggested that we meet at Regent University for a portrait session. I knew the campus would be green and lovely, and there would be some cover nearby in case of wet weather.
As it turned out, we did get wet. But it was a sweet, light rain that just added to the romantic atmosphere of the afternoon. Shelby and Jeramie love the way their portraits turned out, and so do I!
These two gorgeous people were a joy to spend time with. I wish them many years of happiness together! Congrats Shelby and Jeramie!
