Stefani & Jason’s Virginia Beach Farmers Market E-session


farmers market engagement session

Today we have a beautifully photographed engagement session in — guess where? — a farmer’s market! Going to Virginia Beach’s local market is one of bride-and-groom-to-be Stefani & Jason’s favorite things to do together so they brought Chelsea LaVere of Bit of Ivory Photography along to capture their date in action. I just love lifestyle e-sessions like this because it allows the couple’s personalities shine through naturally. Add to that the fact that it was shot by Chelsea whose work I adore (see all previous shoots by her), and here she is with a few words about the cute twosome:

One of their favorite things to do together is to go to the local Farmers Market in Virginia Beach. Stefani would be a much better gal to chat with about their history but it’s a pretty funny story. They met in high school (and I ironically was friends with Jason but had no idea who he was since Stefani was the one who contacted me!) and reconnected years later through Facebook. They are getting married this weekend, and it’ll be a magical affair.

Aww how adorable are these two? They have a really cute story too and luckily Stefani’s here to share it:

Jason and I knew each other in high school, attending the same keyboarding class. We didn’t talk much but I thought he was adorable and goofy, while unbeknownst to me (until years later) he had a crush on me. We lost contact after I graduated. Then 3 years ago on a fine October day, Facebook changed our lives forever. We reconnected and within 2 weeks, we were in love. Fast forward to today, Jason’s still just as goofy and random (almost scarily so, sometimes. Haha!), working as a firefighter for the Navy Region, while I have fun playing with baby stuff at a leading baby/toy store. We enjoy spending the day in each others company, whether just relaxing (I on the computer, him on the XBox), watching movies, or walking around somewhere and putting stuff on our Life Wishlist.

Stefani shares her thoughts about the photo shoot:

Our e-session at the Farmers Market with Chelsea was an all around win. We love getting fresh local veggies and shop there at least twice a month during the summer, so getting our portraits taken there was a no-brainier. What better way to document a significant part of our lives and have something truly unique to us!

Huge thanks (and happy birthday!!!) Chelsea for sending your lovely photos of this beautiful e-session my way, and congratulations on your engagement and recent marriage Stefani & Jason!
