Meet Our Team

William Newcomb Photography is owned and operated by newlyweds William and Helene Newcomb.

Will and Helene began photographing together in 2010, shortly after meeting one another. From 2010 to 2014, they were an unstoppable team, photographing individuals, couples, families, and events. However, in 2014, Will had major complications from Crohn's disease that caused photography (and life) to be put on hold. Will spent the next few years in and out of hospitals, enduring harsh medical treatments, all with Helene by his side. And in 2017, Will went into remission, prompting him to finally ask Helene to marry him.

After all the trials and tribulations that come with living with a chronic illness, Will and Helene can finally pick up where they left off in 2014. They are back to doing what they love - photographing weddings. And in October 2018, they became Mr. and Mrs. Newcomb.

As newlyweds, they know how it feels to be standing in front of a camera, to be planning a wedding, and they know how important all the little details are. As a couple who has been together for nearly a decade, Will and Helene work seamlessly with each other to make sure your photographs are timeless, beautiful, and stress-free.

Will, a Virginia Beach native, has loved photography since the days of film! His very first job as a teenager, believe it or not, was a photo lab technician. Today, Will is known for his flexibility and his work with flash photography. He is incredibly skilled at manipulating light and has built a portfolio of images that are artistic and clean. Although we love Instagram, you won't find trendy filters here - Will's photographs stand the test of time.


Helene is our resident Event Coordinator and Second Photographer. She keeps things running smoothly behind the scenes!

A Norfolk & Virginia Beach native, Helene has been working with Will since 2010. She has an amazingly creative eye and a talent for natural light photography. A master at capturing memories, lightening the mood, fixing wedding dress trains, and holding bouquets (and umbrellas... and jackets... and flash photography gear), Helene has always been a client favorite!
