Cheryl & Jay | A Classic Beauty at The Cavalier Golf and Yacht Club | Virginia Beach, VA Wedding Photographer

I remember meeting Cheryl years ago when I was in college for my BFA, and she was gracious enough to model for me so I could practice my lighting…. I made her meet me at the Ocean Front at like 4:30am, so we could catch that perfect sunrise!!! She was sweet and obliged, and I was able to practice my craft and get some killer images in the process! Since then, I never forgot Cheryl, and her sweet personality… I always hoped one day, I could be there for her when she found her Mr. Right…

Fast forward a few years later, I received an email from Cheryl, FULL of explanation points I might add, about how she was recently engaged to the love of her life, Jay, and that she was certain she wanted me to capture her wedding day! I was stoked! My dream came true, and I could celebrate with her and Jay on the best days of their lives. Cheryl told me how the two met, and it was actually pretty amusing, but incredibly sweet at the same time. See, Jay is a local Chiropractor in Virginia Beach ( A pretty BA one, so you should look him up ) and Cheryl had an appointment with him to get adjusted. She said once she saw him, and he fixed her right up, she was in love… I mean, come on… does it get any cuter than that?! Answer is NO, it doesn’t. haha! On a more serious note, I just want to thank you Cheryl & Jay, for inviting me to celebrate with you on the most amazing day of your lives thus far! It was a joy to watch the both of you! I cant wait to watch your love grow and grow! I’ll always be here for you, sweets! xoxo
