Kellen and Phil – Virginia Beach Sunrise Engagement Session – 89th Street

Kellen and Phil are set to get married in June of 2014 but they wanted to include the beach in at least some of their pictures. Since their wedding is going to be taking place at Norfolk Botanical Gardens and not at the beach, it was a perfect choice for the engagement session. Living in their new house (moving in just the day before) all the way in Gloucester, Va they were troopers to agree to a sunrise engagement session all the way to the edge of Va Beach on 89th Street. This location gave us beautiful light, wonderful boardwalk shots, and also an added bonus – a wooded walkway to get down to the beach! So many great spots without having to go anywhere else!  I am so thankful for my brother suggesting this space since he lives close by! Kellen and Phil brought along their sweet little four-legged baby Dunkin to the shoot – Hopefully he’ll be the star on their Save the Dates even though he didn’t appreciate having to wear a sign around his neck. He went completely stiff and still every time we hung it on him! So funny! Mr. Phil informed me at the beginning of the shoot that neither he, nor anyone else in his family, smiles in pictures – hmmm… I saw a challenge ;0 Take a look to see who won this bet!
