We don’t want our couples rushing through the day. 

We love that the details of the weddings we shoot range from luxurious to simple but one important thing remains, our couples are kind, they’re sentimental, they’re affectionate, they’re funny and aren’t afraid to reach across the table and steal food off of each other’s plate. 

Although we love the beautiful details (no matter how they look)—our team loves our couples’ stories more. 

Our couples believe in marriage more than they do weddings and they love having pass-me-down details to really bring life to their story….

It’s important to our team that our couples experience the beautiful and sweet moments with sincere intention and focus.

The wedding day was even more perfect and she made us comfortable, as if we weren’t even being photographed... We could not have been happier watching them love their job and instantly love us on our wedding day. The day was more than “getting pictures”, they involved themselves in our lives for a moment and captured our love in a way I can display in MY home till-death-does-us-part.

She took on our love story as her own, because... she LOVES love stories.

To date SEP has photographed my engagement session, wedding, family pictures with our new baby and most recently a boudoir session for myself. I have found Sharon and her team so incredibly easy and fun to work with. If you’ve seen any of the SEP galleries and are considering them then you already know they do amazing work and although there are many wonderful photographers in the Hampton Roads area, you won’t find anyone like Sharon. 

She is truly one of a kind.

Our wedding day was so special! Sharon and her team captured every moment perfectly and never made us feel stressed or pulled away from our guests. She was so organized and captured every little detail I felt like I didn’t have time to see, and I am thankful to have those images to look back on. I can’t tell you how many family members wanted a wedding album of their own!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Sharon and her team!
