Shira and Brian had an absolutely perfect wedding. They decided to throw a brunch soirée for to celebrate their love. The rain held out all afternoon for their outdoor ceremony. Shira grew up going to summer camp on at this very venue so she knew this would be the place she married the love of […]

I actually cannot handle the cuteness of this session! Evan and Dustin decided to renew their vows this year in a small ceremony at Morias Vineyards and I was lucky enough to document the day. We went to this stunning Northern Virginia wedding venue for an afternoon of glam for Evan and Sloane and playtime […]

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. […]

This wedding was a decade in the making. These two met at Robinson (when they were 10 years old!) and started dating in their high school years. Cam actually asked her to homecoming by decorating her mininvan in the Robinson parking lot. They then went to college across the country from one another, him at […]

I have been waiting about 2 years to photograph these two again. I got to photograph Ashleigh and Ryan when they were living abroad in Australia! I visited Sydney for a vacation with my friend Margot and we linked up through Instagram. It feels like it has been decades since that trip. Since then, these […]

Brian and Rachel tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at Great Marsh Estate this May and I cannot handle how perfectly the day went. I don’t like using the word perfect because I feel like it devalues the word as it gets used too frequently, but this wedding you guys!!!! Rachel & Brian were cool as cucumbers all day because they have known this day would come since they met in ELEVENTH GRADE. Their families were incredible, their friends looked like models but were extremely helpful and kind.

You know that feeling when you have your hopes really high for something and you’re not sure if how you feel will be validated? Welp, I finally got to work with East Made Co and all of my expectations were exceeded! This dream team put together this Monet editorial like it came from my dreams. This was definitely one of the highlights from my time in Nashville at The Hybrid Co conference which I was able to speak at this spring!

Carly & Josh.. what a pair. These two decided to elope in Meadowlark Botanical gardens with only their parents and last living grandmother. Their siblings didn’t even know! This intimate ceremony took place during the first snow fall of winter in Northern Virginia. What a way to start 2019!

Lauren & Greg had a vision to take portraits all around D.C. and did they ever! We started the day one of the district’s most historic hotels: The Willard. Greg and his guys snapped pictures out front while Lauren and her gals were at Cafe Du Parc. The whole gang then took a ride to Georgetown’s Chapel where these two would tie the knot followed by family formals and portraits on the lawn. The final stop was DAR Constitution Hall where their reception was flawless!

Rain didn’t steal any joy from these two on their wedding day! I’ll be honest, a lot went not-according-to-plan during Renee & Rob’s wedding day: no one knew how to tie a bow tie, the ceremony was moved inside, and a number of logistics went awry… they actually used my wedding ring in their ceremony! But when it came down to it, these two handled it with grace and experienced the day with joy and laughter which is exactly how they will handle all obstacles in life!
