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!!

Ashburn Engagement Session

Who woulda thought Ashburn would have SUCH a beautiful location for a sunset shoot? I'm in love with these photos! It was great to see Justin (neighbor growing up) and meet his beautiful fiancé, Jordyn. 

Slowing Down

On our walk around Reston the other day we decided to actually take detours, slow down..explore more. We saw turtles, deer families, snakes, frogs, dragon flies, fish, and even the rare Wild Blue Eyed Wolf-Dog :)

Summer Farm Wedding

Loved every minute of this farm wedding yesterday in Purcellville. Julia and Omar were so sweet!

Pet Session!

These might be our favorite type of session..LOVED working with sweet Pippin and Napoleon. 

Bristow Manor Wedding

Loved being a part of Gao and Collin's beautiful wedding yesterday at Bristow Manor! One of the funniest couples I've met and some of the most heartfelt vows I've heard. Thanks Jay for second shooting!

Baby Audrey

Some of our besties just had a baby girl..while it made us feel really old to have friends of ours have a baby, we are so happy for them. Audrey was a big baby and there were some birth complications but everyone is home now safe and sound! I loved going over today to snap a few photos for them.
