Rachel + Kassie | Engagement Session | Shore Drive Beach

I can’t believe that September 10th is around the corner… And these two sweet souls will be standing in front of their loved ones and friends as they promise each other their love for one another.

Capturing Rachel & Kassie was the cutest thing. Kassie isn’t the biggest fan of the camera or being the center of attention. So when you pair her up with Rachel, you just watch the beauty shine through Kassie. Watching how Rachel would just say something and Kassie would just light up. Seeing how there were moments between these two that even the camera knew was true love. It was the sweetest of things to see!

There were moments that you would just catch Rachel looking at her love with a heart that was so full. Like she still couldn’t believe how lucky she was to have Kassie by her side forever.

My heart can’t wait for their special day! To be lucky enough to have been chosen to capture their story is a gift I am forever thankful for.

These two are the simplest, sweetest, and truly the most genuine couple I have captured in a long time. It’s going to be a joy to be there on their special day. ❤

Congrats Rachel & Kassie!

Keisha + Errol | Engagement Session | Shore Drive | Virginia Beach

I can’t get over the love Keisha and Errol have for one another! From the moment Keisha messaged me about her engagement session I knew we were going to have fun working together. Keisha and Errol have this sweet and silly side with one another. I loved how they wanted to capture their uniqueness with each other. I love how they braved that cold and gloomy day so they could capture their light and love for their photo shoot.

I learned that these two love birds have known each other for a little over 4 years… That after a little separation they found their way back to one another and have been inseparable since. Seeing Keisha and Errol share in silly moments and giggles while I was blessed to capture their engagement was the sweetest thing I have seen in a long time.

I don’t know what it is with Tashena Shaw Photography… But I seem to attract the best of clients. Those who enjoy each other, those who love to laugh, those who have a love story that inspire others to reach for a great love too, and of all things I always have clients like Keisha and Errol who have a love of fashion and love to show it during our sessions together.

I am so blessed to have met these two love birds… I can’t wait to have the pleasure of working with them again in the future.

Iryna + Jonathan | Winter Engagement Session | The Founders Inn and Spa

When your clients brave the snow to be able to capture some cute images together… Now that’s a session you can’t miss.

Iryna and Jonathan are two of the cutest couple I have ever met. Full of love, life, and giggles. I loved capturing these two together. They were more than happy to step out into the snow and show the world just what Tashena Shaw Photography clients are all about.

I hope to be able to capture these two love birds again one day! ❤

They Saw Me At The Start Of It All… | Client Testimonial

“Tashena has done a wonderful job as a photographer. I first experienced her photographing my cousin’s wedding and she was phenomenal. She was professional and captured excellent moments. I have hired her for my wedding due to that personal experience and she has done my engagement session. Always professional and personable. Highly recommend her for your photography needs. Her prices are well within reason for all she offers.”

A Photographer’s Dreams… | 2016 GOALS | Virginia Beach

As I am sitting here this morning with my little cup of java, my son playing on the floor with his cars, and listening to ‘Rehab Addict’ on HGTV playing. I find myself dreaming of my future photography goals. Is it wrong that I keep wanting to dream BIGGER and BIGGER ??? I think NOT! The way I see it… The moment I stop dreaming and setting goals for myself. Then I STOP growing as a photographer and as a human being. I believe that we all should always dream and set goals in life. It’s what keeps the fire that burns in us all. So why not dream big?

As 2015 is coming to a close I realize I haven’t set any goals for 2016 and that I must do that now! So here are just a few things I WANT to achieve in the year 2016. ❤

JUST SOME OF MY DREAMS + GOALS FOR 2016:

  • Wake up everyday being thankful I get to do what I do.
  • Make sure every client who comes my way is treated with the love and respect they deserve.
  • Book and capture 15 weddings in 2016 !!!
  • Capture another wedding in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina at the ‘Kitty Hawk Pier’
  • TRAVEL out-of-state of Virginia to capture at least 1 or more weddings !!!
  • Save up for and go to the next ‘Creative at Heart Conference’ ❤
  • Enter in 3 more photography contests with pride!
  • Save up for and get my dream camera The 5D Mark lll
  • Add to my camera lens family
  • Continue to challenge yourself everyday!
  • Blog at least 3 times a week.
  • Challenge yourself by going to more photography workshops.
  • Capture a ‘Trash The Dress’ session in a wedding gown.
  • Set up a ‘Stylized’ shoot with local vendors in the Hampton Roads community !!!

🙂
***Most Of All*** Remember to enjoy the ride! Thank our Lord daily for these blessing and clients who trust in you. Remember to challenge yourself. Remember to take time for family because they should always come first. Remember to thank your Husband each day for always being your biggest supporter and friend in this journey of life.

NOT MATTER WHAT NEVER GIVE UP! PUSH. FIGHT. LOVE. CREATE. AND ENJOY THE RIDE OF LIFE.
