Melissa contacted us last Fall for a family portrait session in Hampton Roads, Virginia.

It would  require some patient waiting, though.. Carlos wouldn’t be back until Spring.

Like so many in the Hampton Roads area, Melissa, Carlos and little Levi know what it means to be patient.

Carlos is a proud member of the US Navy and was out at sea for almost a year.

It was all the more special, and an even greater honor, when April finally came around and we were able to spend an afternoon  in Windsor Castle Park with this lovely family.

Every moment they have together is treasured; nothing is taken for granted.

It was a blessing to see these three united again after being apart for so long.

Melissa, Carlos, and Levi – thank you so much for allowing us  to have spent a wonderful afternoon with you!

Morgan and Matt’s elegant wedding in Charlottesville was the perfect start to the year! This day was filled with love and laughter and it was an absolute joy to photograph! King Family Vineyards was a lovely backdrop and the foggy day made everything even more romantic. Morgan and Matt are a real power couple; they are both William and Mary Alumni and ambitious professionals. Their engagement session in Williamsburg, where Matt proposed, was every bit as romantic as their wedding day. This makes a wonderful beginning to the new year and to their journey together. We feel so blessed to work with such amazing people and to be able to document true love.

We had to get up at sunrise to meet them in Yorktown… but it was worth it for this lifestyle photography session!

 Crystal and Lauren live in our community and have helped us on multiple occasions with taking care of our little dog, August.

We thought it’d be nice to pay them back by treating them to a sunrise lifestyle portrait session in a mutual favorite spot, Yorktown!

Crystal and her daughter are close and we could tell before the session. They both have hearts of gold, too.

Earlier this year Crystal and Lauren sacrificed a lot to rescue an abused chihuahua from a shelter. He was still just a puppy, but his previous owner abused him to the point where an eye had to be surgically removed.

Crystal covered the cost and gave him a new home.

Now Lopez, Lauren and Crystal live a happy life together… and they make fantastic friends for August, too, when we’re away.

Thanks so much for all of your help, guys!

xoxo Michael and Carina

 We met Becca back in March when we toured Keswick Vineyards with Julie and Tim, planning their wedding.

She’s the wedding planner who helped bring Julie and Tim’s vision of a perfect wedding to life this past May.

As a wedding planner, Becca works with a lot of wonderful photographers… so we were  honored when she asked us to capture a few candid moments of her family when they came down to Williamsburg for the weekend on a family getaway.

You don’t have to be a photographer to know that little ones don’t like to be posed… so we kept everything very natural and let them do their thing.

Not being parents ourselves.. (not yet anyway)… it was amazing to see the wonder in their eyes as they explored the gardens in Williamsburg.

I wouldn’t classify us as “family photographers”… but we love capturing natural, timeless moments.

And we are so happy with how these came out.

We actually waited until we received the film scans from Indie Film Lab to publish this session, rather than make two separate blog posts.

So this is a mix of film and digital…

We love how it captures them…

We love how it reflects all that we love about photography…

Becca… business owner… wife… mother… this is your family <3

-M

FROM CAROLINE: “Our wedding took place at Big Spring Farm in Lexington, Virginia – a place and a city very close to our hearts. Cole and I met at Big Spring when we were both undergraduates at Washington & Lee University. We would go on to get engaged there and, a year later, married under the weeping willow tree out on the peninsula at Big Spring.

One of our favorite parts about our time in Lexington was the beautiful outdoors, especially the Blue Ridge Mountains. This being said, what was most important to us was to bring our family and friends to this place and setting so close to our hearts. We wanted our wedding to be fun, joyful, and effortless, especially since so many of our guest travelled long distances to come to our out-of-town wedding.

Our vision was to let the Virginia mountains speak for themselves, which is why we chose a neutral color scheme and natural greenery for most of our flowers. We felt as though Michael and Carina’s film photography let that vision come to life in a way that was authentic and timeless. We hoped that all of our details and invitations echoed this theme as well.”
