We only had about 20 minutes for Sally & Chad’s Virginia Beach Oceanfront engagement session. The sun had slipped behind the clouds and we were losing light FAST.

10 years of marriage and I still get butterflies when I think about my husband. The good kind, of course. The kind that Colbie Caillat sang about in 2009 that starts in my toes and makes me crinkle my nose. The flutters are still there after a decade together and they are even more sweet […]
