Tag Archives: Eastern Shore of Virginia
Nan & Brandon….A great couple that are perfect for each other,
and what a BIG Beautiful wedding on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
When I mean big I mean real BIG, I think half of the Eastern Shore attended.
The ceremony was held at the Franktown United Methodist Church
and the reception at the a Barrier Islands Center.
Those fun photos on the dock were taken at a famous Eastern Shore Clam and oyster shack called Bayford.
While most of you are probably not into archeology……..LISTEN UP…….There is a archeological excavation going on right in our own backyard. Down Savage Neck road in Eastville Virginia there is approximately 25 – 30 people, mostly volunteers excavating the beach. I went down there and checked it out…pretty cool…maybe not Indiana Jones cool, but it is pretty exciting for the Eastern Shore. As soon as you walk onto the beach you will be greeted by someone who will give you a little info…for example the site has been estmated to be over 2000 years old . Another little bit of info I learned is that it’s the 487th excavation site in Northampton county. To learn more go HERE.
The excavation is one week only from May 2nd – 9th so get down there soon.
The Harvey Gamage pulled into Cape Charles Harbor on April 21, 2012 at around 3:00pm.
Dave Kabler shot off a welcome canon twice upon arrival.
This tall ship is the first of the year in Cape Charles Harbor leading up to OpSail 2012 .
The Harvey Gamage is a student teaching vessel. More info from the Ocean Classroom Foundation website.
” In December of 1993, Harvey Gamage was purchased by a non-profit educational organization in
Bath, Maine that evolved into the Ocean Classroom Foundation (OCF) of today.
Harvey Gamage is now devoted exclusively to sea education programming,
while still following her traditional route between New England and the Caribbean.”
More of these beautiful tall ships will be sailing into Cape Charles during the summer months.
Check out Tall Ships Cape Charles for dates and info.
Julie got ready in the Bimini flats overlooking the marina.
Tyler chilled out with rest of the groomsman at the Aqua bar.
The ceremony took place on the lawn with the beautiful Chesapeake bay as the backdrop.
The party afterwards was well….. a PARTY with fantastic loud dance music provided by
our local Deejay Xs Shane Hayward. Great food and service was provided by the Aqua staff,
and a little homemade moonshine to top it all off.
What a great party…ah…um… I mean wedding.
The weather and surf was perfect, it was a great time had by all.
The first shoot was pretty good as you can see in HERE in this post.
But the lighting turned pretty gray and boring as the clouds rolled in.
So after the first shoot we decided to try again……different day, location and hair cut.
Pretty cool huh!
Wham Bam Thank You Ma’am with Tattoos.
NOT referenced from the Urban Dictionary…….I was thinking of a line in one of my favorite
David Bowie tunes “Suffragette City” which also has crude connotations.
I would say more on the relation to business…”conducting business without
spending time on formalities or detailed intros, quickly getting what you
really came for”. Ok….so now that I have gone on and on and explained my intro line……
That was the scene for Jessica and Jacobs wedding on Assateague Island beach in Chincoteague Virginia.
A very cool couple who drove all the way from Richmond Virginia to tie the knot on the beach.
The vows lasted about 5 minutes and we shot a couple hundred fantastic shots in less than an hour.
Posted is a small sample.
There is never a shortage of beautiful spots on Virginia’s Eastern shore.
Kendal was having so much fun she was literally jumping for joy by the end of our session…..
Really, I have the picture to prove it.
