Natural Organic Elopement by Angela Elise Photography
You have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love you, I love you, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.
— Pride and Prejudice

Destined from the moment we begin our journey, our souls spend their entirety searching, longing to be connected with the one whom we belong. Knowing, once found, our true journey through life begins. Impassioned and inspired, we yearn for moments like these to be captured and today they have been so eloquently so by Angela Elise Photography.

From photographer Angela Elise: "When we started planning this engagement shoot we wanted to create a natural effortless look with linen and earthy tone, having the focus on the chemistry of the couple in love. The shoot was a a natural area in Virginia Beach which made the perfect backdrop to this romantic evening. Gather Floral put together an exquisite bouquet of a muted fall color pallet which created such a stunning and cohesive look in addition to the couples attire. The dress was something I wanted to be very simple so I decided to design and make it myself to give it that organic feel. I brought the dress the day of the shoot in hopes it would be what we envisioned and with Aglaia handmade jewelry sent over from Elisa Finol in NYC this beautiful set of earrings was the ultimate final touch. This sweet couple have such an amazing love for one another and it showed in every frame. As they walked through the sandy paths by the bay the sun began to set and the subtle breeze glisten of the sun was what every couple would dream of for a romantic early fall engagement.

I am a fine art wedding and portrait photographer based in Virginia Beach, Va. I love everything about photography, how emotion and special moments are captured to the creative composition. The ultimate goal for me, as a photographer, is to document and curate classic and clean images that will last for generations. I use natural light and capture candid moments as well as posed to give my clients a complete story.
