Ann & Drew had a marathon engagement session! No, it wasn’t really long – we met at sunrise in Georgetown and an actual MARATHON was being set up right where we were shooting. Of course, this didn’t phase Ann & Drew at all, and we still found so many quiet places that weren’t overrun by […]

What’s one of the best ways to get GENUINE interaction in your engagement photos? Choose a location where you would naturally hang out! That’s exactly what Em & Brad did! We spent the late afternoon strolling around the DC neighborhood where they live. They walk those streets hand-in-hand all the time…this time I was just […]

I dare you to look at those flying puppy ears and not smile! It’s no secret that I’m a fan of four-legged furry friends! (How anyone can walk by a dog without stopping for a quick head scratch is beyond me.) So, when Jess & Ed wanted to include little Jake, the wonder pup, in […]

Can you think of anything more “DC” than a stampede of Segways at The National Mall? Amy & Pradeep saw this interruption as an opportunity for awesome photos during their engagement session! That’s exactly the kind of couple they are – always ready roll with the punches! I loved getting to know these two as […]

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 […]
