I think one of my favorite things in this career is when my couples trust me whole heartedly. When you put faith in the creatives you hire, magic can happen. That is exactly what Karly and AJ did! This pair knew they wanted classic DC monument photos but were totally open to any second location […]

DAR Constitution Hall Engagement Session | Daughters of the American Revolution Wedding | DC Engagement Photos Karly and AJ

From the minute I hopped on the phone with Allyson, I knew this would be one of my favorite weddings to capture. Not only her style but also her vivacious personality made this an elegant affair that was an overwhelming treat to attend and photograph. She described Jon as the strong silent type and I […]

Classic Washington DC Wedding | District of Columbia Capitol Wedding Photos | Allyson and Jonathan

Grace and John, what a pair. After getting to know these two at their engagement session at her family’s property, I had been looking forward to this wedding all year.

The Inn at Little Washington Wedding | Northern Virginia Elopement Photographer Kir Tuben | Grace and John

If you get married during a tropical storm, you should be given a medal of honor. Just my two cents! Taylor and Lauren planned a destination wedding in Charleston for the closest friends and family and it was insanely beautiful. Yes, it rained and no, it wasn’t the EXACT day they had planned- the power […]

Sometimes, you witness a day that is just so natural it restores your faith in love. This is how Connor and Sarah’s day felt. They decided to get married with only their immediate family present.

I had very high expectations for this Charlottesville wedding and oh man, every single one was met and exceeded! When this couple first contacted me, it was actually Hayley’s mom Lisa who did all the emailing (and the intake call!) Now usually, that’s a red flag when I have a mom so hands on with […]

UVA Chapel Wedding | Verulam Farm Wedding | Charlottesville Wedding Photographer Kir Tuben | Hayley and Sam

I absolutely love it when client suggest engagement locations. I had never heard of Chapman State Park but now, it’s one of my favorite places in the area. This venue has it all: a charming manor, tall grass fields and a small beach at the bottom of the hill. Lisa and Jason like to go […]

Chapman State Park Engagement | Maryland Engagement Session | Lisa and Jason

This is something brand new to the blog! Every year, I try to take on a personal creative project that fuels my heart. In my years in the wedding industry, I have gotten to know heaps of florists and have been fascinated by that aspect of weddings. I found that these designers attend and host […]

Flowerstock 2019 | Virginia Floral Workshop | Hope Flower Farm

Devin and Jeff are an adorable fun-loving pair. We were cracking jokes all morning even at 6:45AM. I loved being able to snap these engagements in fall because in under one calendar year, I will be back with these goofballs photographing their fall Stone Tower Winery wedding. I know they were a tad nervous being […]

Ashley and  Sean were probably the kindest couple I had all year.

Every single person at their wedding whether explicitly said at toasts or said in hugs and loving looks absolutely adored this […]
