Miyako + Ray are getting married in just a few short months! Miyako is Japanese and most of her close family still lives there. For her wedding and engagement shoot, she really wanted to find a way to incorporate some of her Japanese cultural into the photos. Celebrations on the Reservoir has beautiful water views and subtle hints of Japanese architecture. It's the absolute perfect place for these two to tie the knot, so we decided to take their engagement photos at the same location.
My heart was ready to burst with all of the gorgeous light and spring flowers popping out in every direction. Miyako + Ray were such naturals in front of the camera. They focused on each other, goofed around, laughed a ton, and fully embraced their love. It was a dream session.
I am so happy with how their photos turned out! I love all of the laughter and big emotion in the photos. We are over the moon excited to head back to Celebrations for their wedding this July!
Life Update! It has been an amazing 9 years of photographing portraits of all kinds in RVA! It was an amazing chapter in our lives, and we are ready to move on to the next. We will be shifting our business to solely focus on our commercial and editorial photography work, and unfortunately that means we will no longer be accepting bookings for our other photography services. Thank you for being on this journey with us and trusting us to document so many meaningful moments. You can check out our new work by heading to jadaanddavid.com or following us on instagram @jadaanddavid.
There are still a couple more opportunities to work with us this fall! We have a limited number of Thanksgiving Front Porch Sessions available. We also have fall mini sessions available at some of our favorite locations around RVA for select dates this fall! You can book those sessions directly from this link!
