Breakfast for Dinner

Charlie & Trish's wedding on Saturday featured beautiful weather, breakfast for dinner (how FUN), and so many good memories. Love Jubilee Farm in MD!

Cake Smash

Happy first birthday to this adorable boy!

Raspberry Plain Manor Wedding

We just love this venue..and we love Karen and Herbert! Such a sweet couple. Friday was a beautiful day - sunny and 75 with a breeze. We captured many beautiful traditions and can’t wait to share the rest of this day’s photos and video to them.

Another 6-Month Session!

We’ve been doing a ton of family sessions lately during the warm months. We’ve seen so many adorable babies this year!


Georgetown just never gets old! How stunning are these two? Fun fact - we did Iv's identical twin brother's wedding last year! Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend :)

Maternity Session

It seems like maternity session are becoming more and more popular with Compass Studios and we’re not complaining! It’s such a special time in your life to capture. This session was taken on the Stone Bridge Trail in Centreville and it offers so many beautiful backdrops for all types of shoots. Loving this slightly cooler weather, too!

Moroccan Wedding

So glad the rain ended after Friday's wedding ceremony so that we could head outside to capture this beautiful couple on the water! We've captured dozens of various wedding customs but this Moroccan reception was a first for us and it was such a treat.

6 Months Old

Missed the newborn session timeframe? Doesn’t matter! How sweet is baby Adam, the 6-month old olive-skinned model baby? LOVED this session as Jamie, Adam’s mama, is a very close childhood friend of mine.

Golf Course Wedding

Congratulations to Shelby & Ross….ok, and their sweet dog, Kate!! And who knew that a golf course wedding could offer so many magical backdrops?

Family of Three

Loved, loved this sweet and goofy 18 month old and just capturing her in every day moments with her parents.


We aren’t complaining being back at these beautiful botanical gardens in the same week! Laura and Kyle’s engagement session was super fun..the ominous clouds cooled things down a bit and we just beat the rain by the time we finished up. Fun fact: these two found us at a bridal show! It’s nice to know our marketing efforts paid off ;)

Meadowlark Botanical Gardens

We’ve had a few weeks off from weddings, and Randy and Megan’s wedding was a great way to get back into it. We hadn’t yet been to Meadowlark and it lived up to expectations. Despite the heat and lack of rain, their gardens were on point! And Megan and Randy’s wedding felt so special every hour of the day - from handwritten vows, to a choreographed first dance, to a packed dance floor..we are grateful for such a fun day!

Morven Park

We have wanted to do a portrait session at Morven Park for a long time but haven’t gotten around to it because permits are a little pricey! We can see why though - this beautiful Leesburg park offered a huge variety of locations around the grounds. We are looking forward to doing more sessions there and doing Caroline and Chris’s wedding next May <3

Danish Wedding at Bluemont Vineyard

Congratulations Patrick and Sofie!! Such a fun day with, yet again, some truly amazing wedding traditions that Ryan and I are so lucky to witness on a weekly basis (this one being Danish!).

Ida Lee Park Maternity Session

This maternity session was gifted to Kiersten and CJ by their friend, Christine, a past bride of ours! She reached out to see if we offered sessions as gifts and YES we do! We got some really amazing photos. Kiersten will have her shower next month and their baby girl is due in September.

Wishing you a happy fourth

Happy Fourth from these three cuties from Monday’s session!!

Union Mills Homestead - Intimate, Rustic Wedding

And now, moving on to wedding number 3 of the weekend, we have the BEAUTIFUL Melia & Ryan!! Cannot get over their golden hour photos 😍Union Mills Homestead was a stunning historical park with countless backdrops to offer. These two really put the cherry on top of our busy weekend.

Rita & Ryan <3

We had quite the busy wedding weekend but we poured our heart and soul into every wedding! Here are some favorites from Saturday. Rita & Ryan are the sweetest couple. We met them for their engagement session at Harper's Ferry last year and we knew their wedding would be amazing. Rita's parents got married at this same country club 29 years ago, too!! We had fun recreating some pictures.

District Winery Wedding

We LOVED finally photographing at District Winery in DC, a stunning waterfront venue off the Anacostia River. Aida & Bryan’s wedding was full of so many amazing traditions that we feel lucky to have witnessed - including Ethiopian and Jewish customs!

Indian-Polish Wedding

We absolutely loved witnessing countless beautiful customs at this wedding last Saturday at Rose Hill Manor is Leesburg! It was a warm, beautiful day and the guests never left the dance floor the entire night.
