Welcome friend, my name is Hope Steele-Hoggard.
You are seen and deeply loved.
I am 22 years old and I am the youngest of 6 kids. My love for couples photography stems from my own marriage. Getting married young has shaped a lot of who I am today, and I wouldn't trade it for the world!
Having those sweet moments to look back over when times are tough, or even just to smile at daily means so much. My goal is to help you create beautiful memories that will last a life time, and I want to help tell your story in a timeless and modern way.
Based in Hampton, VA, but a passion for travel takes me wherever you want to go! I'm here to make your dream come to life.
I change my hair color a lot, I complain about the heat, and I absolutely LOVE my bed. I'm married to my best friend Richard and we have a passion together for interior design, travel, and Jesus. We have two cats named Blu and Atlas, and a rabbit named Peanut who are our babies. Our goal is to one day have some kind of photography studio or wedding venue!
Richard and I met when we were in middle school, but we didn't start dating until we were almost out of high school. We knew we were ready to get married when we were both 19, so there was no point in waiting! Our May 2nd, 2020 wedding date ended up turning into April 5th, 2020 due to the COVID shutdowns, but I wouldn't trade our sweet little wedding for the world. Richard has been my best friend and biggest supporter for over 5 years now, and he's proven that by second shooting weddings with me when he's available! Our biggest advice for couples is to make sure you truly couldn't live without each other. <3
I have a few photos from before my father's death, but since I was so young and it was a long time ago I don't have many. The feeling I get when I find new photos is hard to explain. Because I don't have many, I appreciate every little photo and memory I have of him. This is why I do what I do. It seems cheesy to hear some photographers say that you should just book the session, but it's truly one of the best things you could do. Those memories last a lifetime; sometimes beyond what you could even imagine.
Obsessed with the details.
It's the little things that make the big events so special. I'll be there to capture every little thing, because I want you to remember it all! I mean, that's why you're connecting with me? Right?
