There’s always something special about the last wedding of the year. For 2016, this belonged to Becca and Shawn – and it went out with a spark! (Get it? Cheesy photographer sparkler joke…oh boy, I must be tired.) Becca and Shawn were wonderful to work with right from the start, and their venue, Shadow Creek, […]

I vividly remember my first meeting with Genevieve. She and her Mom were in my home studio, and I asked to hear a little more about the future husband and wife. Genevieve’s Mom immediately chimed in and said, “They’re just so much fun!” She summed them up perfectly. Genevieve and John’s wedding day was overflowing […]

Clairanne and Chris weren’t afraid to do things a little differently on their wedding day. I wouldn’t say they abandoned tradition, but they certainly added their own twist to every detail of their day. Instead of bridesmaids and groomsmen, they had best women and best men. They opted out of a dance party in exchange […]

It all started with “blue dress girl.” That’s how Nate and his friends fondly referred to Jen after the first night they met in 2009. Jen definitely caught Nate’s eye, but it took him awhile to summon up the courage to ask her out. Jen started noticing that Nate made a point to attend all […]

Columbus Day seems like the PERFECT day for a sneak peek of this world traveling couple’s wedding! Jonelle and Andrew flew all the way from their current home in Bahrain to DC for an amazing wedding weekend with family and friends. The lovebirds met while working together in California and tried to play it cool for a […]

I felt an instant connection when I met Cecilia and Joe. Maybe it was our shared (and perhaps borderline obsessive) love for our pups, or it could’ve been the excitement of photographing a couple who looks at each other the way they do. Cecilia and Joe share this quiet but undeniable sort of love. When you […]

This engagement session was a photographer’s dream! An awesome couple, a gorgeous day, and …oh, wait, what’s that you say – Hawaiian paradise? Yes, the setting for this e-session was Lanikai Beach on the island of O’ahu! I don’t think I need to explain how beautiful this place was – just check out the images! […]

Sometimes, when photographing a wedding, there is one moment that stands out from all the rest. During Tommie and Matt’s Middleburg wedding day, that moment was one that I’ll never forget. Tommie and Matt, two of the most genuine souls you could ever meet, opted for a wedding day schedule that involved a “first look,” as we […]

I absolutely love when photography reunites me with old friends! In this case, I was beyond thrilled when my former college field hockey teammate, Lauren, reached out to me about photographing her wedding. Lauren (fondly referred to as “Ronnie” if you’re a former Laker – Go Hurst!) is and always has been such a beautiful person, […]

Hot Summer Day. Beautiful Family. Loving Sisters. Gorgeous Annapolis. What more could a photographer ask for? (Well, a mild summer day would’ve been just fine by this Pennsylvania native.) The Naros were truly a dream to work with. I LOVE photographing families who…well…love! And the Naros definitely have that love thing down. I’m also always so intrigued […]
