A skilled photographer is able to preserve your memories of irreplaceable moments.

All of these Virginia Beach engagement photographers are artists, as well as professionals — when you work with them, quality pics are basically guaranteed. 

1. Molly Lichten Photography

Splitting her time between Virginia Beach and Los Angeles means lucky residents of two states get to take advantage of Molly’s amazing talent. Combining elements of fine art and fashion photography into her wedding work ensures that the couples Molly works with look absolutely breathtaking! She tends towards fine art compositions — either a wide view of a scene with the couple artfully placed or a close up of the connection her subjects share — both without a lot of distracting background elements. Every one of her photos is a stand alone shot and that’s why we love her — her talent for telling a story is a rare one. 

2. Tami of Boundless Pursuit Photography

With her self-confessed love of spontaneous engagements and intimate weddings, Tami is the engagement photographer to choose when you want your wild love documented in a series of vibrant photos. Looking through her portfolio is like getting a peek into the authentic emotions of her subjects — true tenderness and love are on display, which makes sense, as Tami is both easy to work with and a great artist. Many of her portraits have a free-spirited vibe to them, so if you fancy running down the beach, hair swinging in the sunlight, with the love of your life, let Tami immortalize the moment. Without a doubt, you’ll treasure these photographs for the rest of your life. 

3. Lia Everette Photography

Serving all of Virginia with her joyful, boho-inspired photography, Lia Everette is an engaged couple’s dream. Her work is playful, adding new elements like smoke into her work for photos that are cutting-edge yet timeless. Many of her images exude a moody vibe — perfect for highlighting the artistic, unconventional couples she loves to work with. The landscapes found around Virginia are well represented in her work, making her a true locals’ delight, as well as giving a sense of place to your engagement or elopement photos. When you want a big dash of authenticity with your art, Lia is the one to work with. 

4. Mackenzie Alexa Photography

An ultra-hip, editorial style lands Mackenzie solidly on this list. Her photos are intimate, yet polished, peeking into the love people share. Her years of living in Italy has refined her artistic senses, and she often incorporates the landscape into her couples shoots. Her images are full of soft and beautiful light, ebullient moments, and an effortless coolness. If you are passionately in love, perhaps a bit stylish, and need a gifted photographer to match, reach out to Mackenzie.

5. David Champagne Photography

David Champagne is one of the most acclaimed Virginia Beach wedding and engagement photographers. After all, he’s the winner of WeddingWire’s Couples Choice Award for multiple years, The Knot‘s Hall of Fame Best of Weddings winner, and boasts over 350 weddings under his belt. His style is highly technical, so when you want a magazine art shot for your engagement photos, he’s the best choice — from cool flash techniques to incredible framing using architectural elements, his skills are finely honed.

6. Lyndsay Curtis Photography

A thoughtful photographer with a serious case of wanderlust, Lyndsay is down to travel to wherever your story takes you. Her love of the whimsical is evident in the fact she adores Walt Disney World, and her playfulness transfers into her artistic style, too — fun angles and cheerful moments aplenty. We appreciate the elegance she infuses into her compositions — simple and refined, while telling a complete story — it is perfectly suited for photographing the colors of the sand and sea here.

7. Amanda Robbins Photo

Full of glowing brides and enhanced by her high-key style, Amanda’s portfolio is simply breathtaking. Her airy shots make her one of our favorite Virginia Beach engagement photographers — all that brightness is perfect for highlighting the sand and sea — but, fortunately for the landlocked, she serves all of Virginia. We find her close crops particularly charming as they put the focus on the tenderness between her couples. When you want to work with a professional with a light touch and an eye for the real moments, work with Amanda. 

8. Anna Kratoville Photography

With a penchant for beautiful sunlight, Anna’s perpetually inspired to get out and produce jaw-dropping photographs. Her impressive portfolio is packed with carefully composed images that are often deeply shadowed, giving a film flair to her portfolio, as well as adding just enough nostalgia to tug the heartstrings. Detailed, dimensional, and emotional, Anna is the creative to collaborate with whenever — and wherever — you have a chance. 

9. Will Hawkins Photography

Award-winning photographer Will Hawkins is one powerhouse creative. Drawing from his years of experience across many genres of photography, he produces technically perfect photographs, which is probably why his work has appeared on the covers of multiple magazines.
