Some engagement sessions seem so surreal. I have known Emily for over a decade; I actually met her in 2007 on my recruiting trip to Duke! She ended up being my ‘big sister’ on the swim team and part of Sprint Club so we would train together every day. We have seen each other through […]

The second Becca and Malcolm got engaged, I just knew I had to capture their wedding! These two were actually in Zach and Lauren’s Richmond wedding that I captured this spring and they were just the cutest pair tearing up the dance floor and having a blast. Malcolm has this energy about him that makes […]

From start to finish, Jesse and Haley were a dream to work with. Their engagement session launched a litany of clients wanting Cherry Blossom engagement photos so I can’t imagine all the requests for elements from this wedding day.

They had a small elopement this winter with just family, got married in Italy in an intimate wedding and had a big casual reception party with all their friends back home this summer. What a dream!

District of Columbia Engagement Session | D.C. Monument Engagement | Allyson + Jon

The second Kailey inquired, I knew she was the bride for me. This gal is a vlogger, chic fashionista and has the same taste in movies (SO many Notebook references made on wedding day). She and Ryan were high school sweethearts and Ryan knew from their very first phone conversations that Kailey was the one. […]

I have known Jeff a since my college days! We both went to Duke together and ran in similar circles. In fact, he and my hubby were in the same fraternity! When he and his fiance Michelle reached out for engagement photos, I was over the moon excited! We had a little scheduling snafu since […]

Ever wonder what an hour of portraits on wedding day would look like? Christina and Alex hired me for just that!! Usually, on wedding day, you usually have a grand total of 30 minutes of newlywed portraits on wedding day… and for these two, it was even less! There was a heatwave on their special […]
