jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_beach_engagements_sandbridge_beach_back_bay_wildlife_refuge_0908Paige & Abe’s engagement session was at Back Bay, National Wildlife Refuge. This spot happened to be close by to where there wedding will be at in Sandbridge this fall, overlooking the sound side of the water. They wanted their engagement portraits and their wedding day portraits to be cohesive and Back Bay allowed us to do that perfectly and still give us some variety. I enjoyed laughing with these two through out the evening, whether it was acting like a fool to get them comfortable, oohing & aahing over the magic that was happening in my camera because of the two of them and of course, the two of them having a blast together.

Abe was happy to look at Paige and flirt with her because he knew just how gorgeous and sweet she is, and is a man who doesn’t take her for granted. Every time I caught myself saying, “man you’re a lucky guy! She’s stunning,” Abe without hesitation would tell me that, “Oh! I know!” Whenever I told him to hug on her or go in for a kiss he lit up and was such a sport through out the engagement session.¬†Congratulations Paige & Abe, I am very excited for your wedding day this fall at Baja!
