Carrie & Harrison were two of my brave morning warriors. They opted for a sunrise session to avoid those crazy afternoon cherry blossom crowds. As a night owl, I think anyone who volunteers to get up before 8am is brave, but it was more than the morning hour that made Carrie & Harrison the BRAVEST! […]

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 […]

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! […]
