Engagement season has officially begun with so many 2019 couples sessions! Staci and Matt found me through a google search and I am so thrilled they did, I could hang with these two all day! We first met for coffee and donuts at The Sugar Shack in the North End, when Staci ordered my favorite kind of lavender drink I knew we were officially meant to be! We ended up talking and laughing for hours without missing a beat, they truly felt like old friends. They are so down to earth, share my love of Grey's and are completely adorable together. 

They are tying the knot later this year in Virginia Beach at The Shifting Sands - I already know it is going to be a stunner! These two have such a gorgeous love it is so palpable from the moment you enter a room with them. The way Matt looks at Staci is everything and the way she fits perfectly in his arms is like two puzzle pieces finally found. I fell in love with their love and during our engagement session we ran all over Downtown Norfolk capturing it! We laughed and played our way through the entire thing...when it ends with shots of their signature drink from Radford VA college days, it was a really really good one! These two are so rad and their love story matches it, college sweet hearts with the kind of love that is best friend soulmates. 

 

I can not wait for their October wedding! Cheers to these gorgeous loves and their engagement!

A SandBridge Virginia Beach Wedding | Meghan + Austin https://www.kaylabellephotography.com/blog/2019/3/a-sandbridge-virginia-beach-wedding-meghan-and-austin

 

 

Breaking up these Winter blues with this gorgeous Sandbridge beach wedding from last year! I hope this warms you up!

 

When Meghan first inquired with me and told me a little about her and Austins story, I knew immediately their wedding day was going to be filled with incredible moments. College sweethearts, both incredible athletes meeting in their love of sports, they are seriously two perfect puzzle pieces together. One of my favorite parts of documenting wedding stories is being invited into such an intimate day with family and friends. Being entrusted with one of the most important days in a relationship is not something I take lightly and I knew their day would be filled with so many precious family memories. Meghan and I spent the the months leading up to her wedding talking through email only meeting for the first time on her wedding day. I remember walking into the bridal suite and instantly feeling like I was at my best friends wedding, the happiness was contagious. Not only was  Meghan the sweetest bride, she is beyond stunning and has the brightest smile that is like a giant hug (total girl crush moment). The two of them together is about the dreamiest thing I have ever seen! I am pretty sure I told them I was obsessed with them about 100 times throughout the day!

The place Meghan and Austin picked to say forever was somewhere chosen for them decades earlier. The home in Sandbridge, Virginia where her family visited every summer since she was little, is where they started their married roots. I could feel how deeply engrained her family history was in that space, it was palpable throughout the day. Their family and friends were the most amazing crew and poured so much beautiful love over them. One of my favorite moments was during speeches when Meghan's father shared stories relating to the deep bond they have and I am pretty sure he brought down the place with tears (cue camera in front of my face). 

It was easy to see why these two are so loved, their energy and excitement for enjoying each little moment and soaking in each other brought nothing but insane joy to their day. I could have photographed them again and again, the way Austin looks at her is that kind of can't sleep, can't breath type love! 

I wish these two a lifetime of happiness, love and memories made at the beach house! Congratulations Meghan and Austin on your forever after!

A Fauquier Springs Country Club Wedding | Elizabeth & Daniel https://www.kaylabellephotography.com/blog/2018/5/FauquierSpringsCountryClubWedding This wedding and this couple was a total dream! The love Elizabeth and Daniel share is magical and the entire day was heavenly watching them unite their souls and families together this past fall in Warrenton, Virginia. Their love story has roots that grow deep, this special day was almost twelve years in the making and it was such an honor to witness. These two basically grew up together and share the most AWESOME, hilarious group of friends, the strong bond they all have is so apparent. I did not stop smiling the entire day and my cheeks totally hurt from laughing. They both come from such amazing families, over flowing with kindness and their day radiated nothing but love. They chose two beautiful venues for their wedding day celebration, the ceremony took place at Warrenton Presbyterian Church followed by the reception at Fauquier Springs Country Club in Warrenton and the weather was perfection. We found so many pretty little areas for pictures and these two lovers rock the camera which made choosing their final images almost impossible! The excitement for these two was palpable and this group knows how to party, so many epic dance battles went down (it was hard to contain myself from joining)!

We had such a wonderful time working with these guys and I can not stop saying what a dream it was to share in their day! It truly was the best day with some of the best people!! Wishing you both nothing but all the happiness in the world!

Congratulations Elizabeth & Daniel on your forever love!!

A Winter Virginia Beach Elopement | Matt + Kim https://www.kaylabellephotography.com/blog/2018/4/a-winter-virginia-beach-elopement-matt-kim  

I had just wrapped up my 2017 Wedding Season when Kim contacted me to photograph her intimate elopement in Virginia Beach, VA. We instantly connected via email and I knew right away she was my kind of gal! Her Fiance' Matt and her were planning to elope at one of their favorite hidden spots at a local park surrounded by only their closest people. Let me tell you, the spot they chose was out of this world! I could not believe such an amazing location was hiding right down the road from where we lived! I remember saying numerous times how it felt like we jetted off to our own private island for the day! You wouldn't even know that it was drizzling during the entire ceremony, these two just lit up the second they saw each other, nothing could dampen those smiles. They ensured to make their entire day about them and I couldn't of loved it more! Kim was the sweetest, diy boho bride and she even hand made her own bouquet out of paper, so cool!! The deep love these two share was so apparent and I am so honored I was there to capture their beautiful love story! Congratulations Matt + Kim on your forever!!

Welcome | VA Beach Wedding Photographer | Virginia https://www.kaylabellephotography.com/blog/2018/4/welcome-va-beach-wedding-photographer-virginia Hello Hello Friends!



Welcome to the Kayla Belle Photography blog and my little corner of the world! I have been working towards sharing this piece of my heart for so long and I could not be more excited to get this bad boy running! I am based out of the beautiful city of Virginia Beach, VA specializing in wedding photography along with family portraits. I serve the entire state of Virginia along with traveling anywhere in the world to capture epic love stories and adventure sessions. Serving Hampton Roads, Virginia and the surrounding areas has been my biggest passion and I truly love capturing all the love stories and growing families, each client steals a piece of my heart every time. Every image is a little pocket of time that I get to steal for memories that last for years and generations after. When I am not running around behind the camera, you can find me at home or on an adventure with my family, my amazing, patient partner in this wonderful life and our five kids, who run the show or wait..we totally do ;). 

This blog will feature all our recent work along with insight and education into all things photography with a dose of family and life mixed in! Sharing more of my biggest passion with you all is something I have been looking forward too!
