The sun has finally returned to Virginia, and it was just in time for Khanita and Luan’s engagement session on the waterfront in Old Town Alexandria. Khanita and Luan have been together since high school! Mutual friends first introduced them and they bonded through their shared love of music and cards games and surviving math […]

It seems like for the past few weeks every session and wedding I’ve been at has had rain and dark skies. Even on the days there was no rain the sky was overcast and misty. Holly and Justin had originally scheduled their engagement session on a Sunday evening, but with it looking like rain was […]

After a long week of potential stormy weather we had a beautiful day for Kelsey and Andrew’s wedding! The two tied the knot at Faith Like a Mustard Seed Farm in Lucketts, Virginia over Memorial Day weekend surrounded by their closest family and friends. This was my first time visiting the farm and I loved […]

Every time I photograph a new couple I’m always so grateful for the opportunity to be the one to capture their memories. It’s even more special when two close friends trust you with that responsibility. Sarah and I met in college and during our time a JMU studied abroad and ran on the executive board […]

It’s been a few weeks since the cherry blossoms, but Amanda and Josh’s engagement session is up on the blog! Originally we had picked out a weekend in March for their engagement photos, but because of the crazy spring we had in D.C.  the trees refused to bloom. For a while it seemed like the peek […]

Despite being a Loudoun wedding photographer, I’ve never gotten the chance to visit Tranquility Farm in Purcellville until a few weeks ago. All of a sudden I ended up there back to back two days in a row! Tranquility is where my first 2018 wedding will be so I started the week with a walkthrough […]

It’s hard to believe that this is Lauren & Jon’s third time in front of my camera! I first met Lauren and Jon after Lauren’s mom reached out about wedding photography. Now, two years later, they’ve been in front of my camera for their engagement session, wedding and now maternity photos! We met up at […]

The stubborn cold weather has kept the cherry blossoms from blooming, but that didn’t stop this spring D.C. engagement session from being full of beautiful light and flowers! Stephanie and Reese met up with me at the Jefferson Memorial last weekend for a rather chilly spring session. We’ve been chatting since the fall and it […]
