Emily + Zach | Norfolk VA | I Do

How amazing is it when you have a bride ask you to do a First Look on a battleship?!  I was ecstatic when Emily devised this plan!  Zach is a lawyer in the Navy, which made it that much more wonderful photographing on the USS Wisconsin with Zach in uniform too.   Emily is the sweetest bride and was beyond excited about the photography. She is a graphic designer and has an eye for photography, so we were honored that she choose us.  Emily is the absolute best at sending out the cutest cards, and I was the lucky recipient of dozens from her over the past year.  We were told it would be challenge to get Zach smiling, but that’s where Aaron comes in. Within 10 minutes Aaron had him chuckling like a school girl (Aaron’s lingo!).  Emily told me about all the details, but I was in awe of every last one of them at their wedding.  From all of the custom paper Emily designed, their monogram lighting up the dance floor, how each napkin was transformed into a Kate Spade bow, to the collection of antique milk glass used for each centerpiece.  The color palette in the floral design was one of the most gorgeous I have seen.  I also loved that cocktail hour took place in the Tiffany Gallery, full of Tiffany glass.  Oh, there was a buffet of cookies too!  Each detail was perfectly stunning!
