Norfolk Botanical Gardens Engagements: Mary & Andrew

Norfolk Botanical Gardens Engagement portraits of bride and groom

Mary and Andrew are getting married this October at Norfolk Botanical Gardens! I was very excited to get to photograph their engagement portraits at the same location because  there is so much variety and different gardens to photograph in. I enjoyed walking around with them while they pointed out spots for their cocktail hour, ceremony, and reception! We also took some time to walk through the butterfly house garden and chat with each other. Mary is a high school photography teacher in Norfolk so when they choose me to be their wedding photographer I felt even more grateful than normal! Being trusted to photograph such an important time of their lives together and their wedding day by another photographer is one of the greatest compliments! They made my time photographing them so easy because they were playful with each other and had fun with the portraits! I am looking forward to their wedding day this October and know how gorgeous Mary is going to look that day! (I have seen a picture of her wedding dress already and she looks beautiful in it! 😉 ) Congratulations Mary and Andrew!  jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2170 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2171 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2172 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2173 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2174 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2175 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2176 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2177 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2178 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2179 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2180 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2182 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2183 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2184 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2185 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2186 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2187 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2188 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2189 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2190 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2191 jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_norfolk_engagement_portraits_norfolk_botanical_gardens_engagement_photography_hampton_roads_2192
