Last 2018 Wedding

Our last wedding of the year did not disappoint - full of cozy barn dancing, good wine, and even flower Grandma's 😍. So honored to capture a childhood friend's wedding and see so many familiar faces! Allen and Morgan, congratulations!! Wishing you both years of happiness and can't wait to share more photos with you.

Family Session at Lake Anne

It’s a joy to photograph this infectiously happy family! We met them last year when for a family session when Sophia was just 2 months. Now she’s 14 months and her silly personality has really exploded.

Raspberry Plain Wedding

Our second wedding of the weekend was just as stunning. We're so glad we were still able to capture some fall colors, too! As the season is winding down, we are reflecting on the amazing, sweet coupes we've worked with this year such as these two.

Fall Wedding in Luray

Tim and Hayley were married in Luray, VA this past Saturday on a frigid but sunny, vivid day. We loved spending all day with these two and capturing every moment!

Mexican Honeymoon

We are struggling being back in the real world because this trip was a DREAM. We spent 8 days immediately following our wedding in the beautiful Riviera Maya, Mexico at a resort called Unico 2087. Our days were filled with sunshine, pool time, endless consumption of food, endless mojitos, snorkeling in caves and with sea turtles, swimming with dolphins, seeing ancient ruins, zip lining, getting massages, 24 hour room service…guys the list goes on! We are so grateful for such a long, safe vacation and we can’t wait to travel more as newlyweds. It was such a nice change of pace from some of the backpacking trips we’ve done :) Enjoy a few favorite photos of ours.

Stone Tower Winery Wedding

I was so honored when a friend of mine Alexandra asked me to photograph her wedding!! Stone Tower Winery will always be one of our favorite venues. I loved working with these two, it was like a last hurrah before our own wedding in one week. They had a beautiful fall day and were surrounded by such wonderful families. Congrats to Alexandra and Evan!!

Black Horse Inn Wedding

Fall is finally here. It always seems to hit late in Virginia. We went from 85 degrees to 40’s in a matter of days. The Black Horse Inn in Warrenton was a stunning wedding location. We were able to capture some beautiful fall colors in our portraits on a sunny, crisp day. Kristin and Steven were a joy to work with and we know they will share a lifetime of happiness!

Autumn Dream Wedding

Friday's wedding was a sunny autumn DREAM. Morgan's wedding dress has been used in her family for generations (if we remember correctly this was the seventh wedding the dress was used at!). Their adorable dog Lou made an appearance, the calm weather allowed for some fun drone shots, we tried to fit 10 bridesmaids in a was such a fun day to be a part of 

Ancient Castle

Ok, it’s just church ruins at Harpers Ferry but “ancient castle” sounds WAY cooler! Ryan and I had the best engagement session with this couple on Sunday. We are doing Rita and Ryan’s wedding next June and are very excited to work with them again. Harpers Ferry is definitely in our top three favorite local engagement shoot locations. It has so many beautiful backdrops to offer - water, cute shops, and of course, STUNNING ruins.

Anniversary Session

We had a great time capturing this anniversary session on Friday with Truniqua and Ryan. Great Falls was nearly flooded and made for some stunning shots. The way the sun hit the Maryland side of the river made it look like we already have fall colors, too!

Balloon Wedding in the Mountains

It was so great to see lots of familiar JMU faces on Saturday at this beautiful Virginia mountain wedding. Grant and Danielle sure know how to throw a FUN wedding. By far our favorite part was the first look when the wedding party hid the bride behind a sea of balloons! Such a happy day and can’t wait to share more photos and video.

DC DIY Wedding

These two threw an amazing DC wedding - with undercover superheroes, photos at the monuments (accompanied by enthusiastic tourist-paparazzi), and dinner under the night sky. We loved witnessing every part. Can't wait to edit their teaser video, too!

Misty Farm Wedding

We loved capturing Danielle and Jarrod's rainy but beautiful wedding on Saturday at Glen Garden Weddings, Fredericksburg. These two had such a special bond. Also we did not know that horses love to nibble on bouquets

Sunset Engagement Session - DC

Foggy Sunrise Session

Jim is getting married in Ohio in a couple months and reached out to me for a last minute engagement shoot. He wanted something nature-y at sunrise so I immediately made time for it. We met last Monday morning at Great Falls right when the park opened. It was foggy when we got there, and then the some came out about 30 minutes later, so it was great to work with two types of lighting during the session. We finished up at a less-known location, Lake Anne in Reston. I think we got some great shots and I'm excited for him to able to use these for his wedding!

Woodend Sanctuary Wedding

Yael and Daniel's wedding on Sunday featured fall-like weather in August. We got to witness and capture such beautiful Jewish traditions, and the reception was so fun and lively. Congrats to these sweet newlyweds!

Reston Creek Frolicking

It is always an honor when old friends reach out to us. Allen I go way back to childhood swim team, producing action figure movies on the daily, and Razor scooters. It was great to catch up with him and meet his lovely fiancé, Morgan. These two were troopers - fighting their way through overgrown forests, slippery rocks, and mosquitoes to get some very romantic/woodsy shots. Looking forward to their wedding in November!!

Georgetown Engagement

LOVED exploring Georgetown with Miranda and Andrew. This section of DC has so many backdrops to offer..can't wait to go back for another shoot and see what we find! 

High School Reunion!

I was so touched when my high school friend Jaime reached out about photography and videography for her wedding. I soon found out that the planner she hired was another high school friend, Angelica. It was a blast for the three of us to reconnect 10 years later at a wedding, all as three girls now kicking butt at life! Congratulations Jaime and Brad, Ryan and I had so much fun capturing your day. 

Jefferson Memorial Engagement Session

Absolutely LOVED working with the gorgeous couple on this gorgeous day in this gorgeous city!!
