Classic, Elegant Wedding at the Four Seasons

Still in bliss from Saturday's wedding at the Four Seasons in Georgetown! Ali and Nemanja threw a perfectly elegant, classic, and intimate wedding with their closest loved ones. Thankfully we were able to find windows of time without rain, too. We had a great time capturing the day. Wow what a gorgeous couple!

Misty Maternity Session

Our good friends visited this weekend to hang and to have us take some maternity photos. Baby Lachlan is due on July 4th - how fun! We loved walking around woodsy Reston on Saturday morning and using the variety of backdrops it always has to offer.

Premiere Venue - River View at Occoquan

Congratulations to the Reedy's! Such a beautiful day with such a kind couple. Thank you Christine and Tyler for having us capture your amazing day at the beautiful new venue!

Upper Shirley Vineyards Wedding

The J's are married!! Jordyn and Justin’s wedding yesterday at Upper Shirley Vineyards was the perfect way to kick off our Spring season. It was so great to capture yet another wedding with so many familiar faces from childhood, too. Thank you so much for having us, what a stunning day!

Manassas Battlefield Maternity Session

How stunning are Olivia and Mike at this maternity session from the weekend?? We filmed their wedding video in 2017 and now they are entering a new chapter of their lives. So exciting!

DC Cherry Blossom Session!!

Photographing amongst the DC cherry blossoms is like photographing in a fairytale. It was ironically really fun to be out there at sunrise sharing the space with hundreds of other pros doing their portrait sessions.. all respecting each other's space and just soaking in this short-lived spectacle. Karen and Herbert crushed their session, too!

Baby Camden

This in-home newborn session was the sweetest. Newborn sessions are not always easy, but in the end they are so rewarding. All the hard work, crying, cleaning up certain messes (lol), etc makes the final product so even more appreciated! I just love how much he looks like his sonogram, too <3

Now offering albums

We are thrilled to now be offering wedding albums...Ultra thick paper, lay-flat design, customizable linen color and cover design. For a limited time only we are offering these albums at a discount to any past client! You choose your favorites, and we do the rest. A wonderful anniversary gift. Please inquire for details

Engagement Session at US Capitol

Another frigid session but totally worth it! The crowds were smaller and the sunset was stunning. These two work in politics in DC so the Capitol was the perfect backdrop. Can’t wait for their wedding this fall!

Sunny Winter Session at Cabell's Mill

We found a new go-to engagement location at Cabell’s Mill in Centreville! It had so much to offer from fields to creeks to a cute well. These two braved some pretty frigid weather on Saturday but it was all totally worth it. The sun (and their adorable dog, Snow) behaved so well. Usually we do sessions closer to sunset but there’s something special about this bright, vivid midday light in this session that we’ve fallen in love with.

Wedding Tips - Where to Splurge and Where to Save

Our wedding was not cheap, but we definitely saved thousands by doing some simple tricks that I’d like to share. It IS possible to have your elegant dream wedding while cutting costs! The key is to know what you can and can’t skimp on. Our wedding was by no means perfect, but I definitely have some takeaways from the whole experience that I think would be super useful to a lot of future brides. Let’s dive in, shall we?

Our Wedding!!!

Enjoy some favorite shots from our OWN wedding on October 27th! It felt so amazing to be on the other side of the wedding process. It was a stressful few months leading up to the big day but all the hard work was worth it. HUGE thank you to our amazing photographers, Caroline and Amy with Paperbird Photography.

Just some of many highlights from the day: A huge rain storm stopped an hour before the outdoor ceremony (and the sun even said hello), brick oven pizza was consumed, there was one tree that looked like Fall and that's all we needed, almost all 800 of our first cousins attended, and everyone danced the night away in a cozy barn on a frigid, muddy day.. mostly in the form of dance circles

Chilly Reston Maternity Session

Saturday's maternity session took place basically in our back yard! We finished up right before the snow storm started and although that would've been pretty, we were cold enough 😄Very excited as well to photograph the newborn in a few weeks, which based on these two, will be a beautiful baby!

Snow Paradise

Today has been so amazing. We have been frolicking around this long anticipated snow and Koko is one happy puppy. Hope everyone is enjoying themselves!

Reston Town Center Engagement

We've always wanted to do an engagement session at Reston Town Center and we're so glad that Missy and Kevin were up for it! Here are some of our favorites from the shoot..

Festive Engagement Session

There's nothing like a festive engagement session in Old Town during the holidays. We loved walking around with these two, exploring cobble stone streets and historical homes. Such a photogenic couple! We are excited for their wedding in August.

2018 Review

2018 has been one heck of a year. Enjoy our recap video with some of our favorite shots. This year was filled with SO many amazing clients, and only a small portion are represented in this but we thank you ALL. Cheers to 2019!

Tis the Season...

for family photo shoots! We have been very busy photographing families for holiday cards this year and have been having a great time. How cute are these dog sweaters?

Burke Lake Family Session

Loved working with this sweet family at Burke Lake! This session was a gift from his sister, who is a past bride of ours. If you are searching for Christmas gift ideas, family sessions are without a doubt one of the most useful things. Experience gifts are wonderful because they don’t clutter your home with more stuff :)

Foggy Engagement

We loved exploring Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis and will definitely book future shoots there after seeing all it has to offer. Sunday was quite the foggy day but it provided such a magical backdrop for these three!
