Home Sweet Home in Hampton

We moved to Virginia in 2010 and after a few moves, we settled in Hampton as our home. Something about Hampton called to us and made us feel so welcome. We couldn’t quite put our finger on it but it was close to Josh’s job so it made sense. It didn’t take long living here […]

When Facing Huge Obstacles | Personal

Sometimes I shy away from blogging about things because I feel like I’m not qualified enough to talk about the subject. I don’t want to give tips on running a successful business because I only have experience from my own life. Marketing is the same—I know what has worked for us, but that doesn’t mean […]

Davy + Brooke | Apple Blossom Plantation Wedding, Providence Forge, VA

6 years ago when we moved to this area, we had the privilege of getting to know the Saunders Family. While we didn’t become acquainted right away, we were constantly hearing about how great this family was, how giving they were, and how much they cared about investing in the lives of others. How did we […]

Why We Do Table Shots at Weddings

Heehee– I don’t know a better way to describe it.  I promise we’re not kicking back shots on the tables at weddings!  But we do strive to take photos of the guests at each wedding, time permitting.  For photographers, this is one of the least favorite parts of a wedding day because there’s very little […]

This Is Us, Trying to Have a Chill Birthday Party

We all have our strengths and weaknesses, and it’s important to know where you shine (or don’t).  For us, we’re not good at planning small get-togethers.  Our backyard parties have an average attendance of 100 people.  Our wedding had around 300.  We love people, and it’s hard for us to pare down a guest list because our […]

Dana + Dave | Spirit of Norfolk Night Wedding

Back in the spring I got word that a bride was looking for someone to do her engagement photos– and quick!  She’d had several sessions set up that had fallen through and her fiancé was about to deploy.  We talked and she was the sweetest person ever!  She had one window of time left in their […]

Kaitlin + Wayne | Colonial Williamsburg Engagement

Kaitlin + Wayne got up way too early on New Years Day to get these pictures!  They were scurrying around, packing to leave (they were here visiting family and leaving immediately after our session), and Kaitlin even managed to squeeze in a hair appointment!  Not to mention, they have an adorable one year old son who they […]

Our Fabulous Couples of 2015! | Photography

Can I be honest?  I’m not exactly killing it on the recap posts from this year.  Lately it’s been all I can do just to share a few images from each session or wedding.  Fowler Studios grew so much this year, and when we grow, we like to take it slow and make sure we’re not […]

Adriana + Bryan’s Chesapeake Golf Wedding

Adriana + Bryan’s wedding day was just incredible.  Her necklace was the same one her grandmother wore on her wedding day, family who was unsure whether they were able to fly in from Italy arrived just in time, and that dress— oh my goodness it swayed and bounced perfectly with every twirl on the dance […]
