Anyone who knows me will tell you I am not a morning person, but Caitlin and Jackson’s D.C. engagement session was definitely worth the early morning wakeup call! Last weekend I met these two at the Jefferson Memorial right at sunrise for their chilly morning portraits. They (along with Caitlin’s mom, sister and pup) braved […]

Katrina and Michael’s Great Falls engagement session is the first one of 2018! From the first time Katrina emailed me she was talking about a winter engagement session, so we picked a day right at the beginning of the year and crossed our fingers for snow. Somehow we ended up with quite the opposite– a […]

Tucked away in the countryside, Goodstone Inn and Restaurant is a romantic bed and breakfast located in Middleburg, Virginia. It also happened to be the perfect backdrop for Lauren and Shane’s engagement session! Goodstone Inn has a cute courtyard, winding paths, ivy walls and some big open fields. We originally had picked a location closer to […]

One of my favorite parts of being a wedding photographer is getting to travel to places I’ve never been before. Last weekend was no exception! After a little road trip down south, I met up with Ashley and David for their engagement session at Longwood University. While I’ve heard lots of wonderful things about Farmville […]

Fall engagement season is in full swing and last week I got to meet up with Kelley and Ryan! We started at Claude Moore Park before heading over to Belmont Country Club to wrap up their photoshoot. After having to reschedule because of rain, we ended up with a beautiful fall afternoon. The leaves at […]

The first fall engagement session of the year is here! Last week I met up with Janelle and Steven for their Harper’s Ferry engagement session. After a short drive out of the state we met up in this historic West Virginia town for their portraits. Janelle had actually scouted out locations on Google maps before […]

A few weeks ago I got to travel to Richmond for Brittany and Tae’s Libby Hill and Belle Isle engagement session! We had originally scheduled their engagement session for back in May, but because of some rain and VCU’s graduation we had to reschedule. The day of their session ended up being 90 degrees making […]

Saturday afternoon I drove down to Richmond for my first engagement session in the city! Beth and I actually worked together on JMU’s yearbook a little while back and reconnected when she posted in a Facebook group looking for a JMU wedding photographer. Both Beth and Juan are JMU grads and will be getting married […]

The weather has been not been able to make up its mind the past few weeks, so I was a little nervous about what it would be like for Kara & Justin’s engagement session. These two are both JMU alumni and were driving back down to Harrisonburg for their session in the rain. Luckily by […]

Lauren & Jon’s engagement session is one of my favorite recent sessions because these two made it so unique to them! I met up with them at their favorite brewery- Dirt Farm Brewing in Bluemont, VA for a perfect fall evening. The brewery has amazing views of Loudoun County all year round,  but we hit […]
