 Halfway through this darling engagement session, Brittany and Andrew felt as though they had to confess something to me… They were UNC alumni! In college, there was no feud more powerful than the one between UNC and Duke but weirdly enough, even though I am a Blue Devil through and through, some of my very best friends went to UNC! Now in DC, I actually LOVE running into anyone who shared my North Carolina experiences: He’s Not, TOP) and Franklin Street were all a major part of my college experiences too! So Brittany & Andrew’s “confession was met with laughter and heaps of inside jokes.

While capturing couples is truly my passion, I have a soft spot for female entrepreneurs! At one point, I myself wrote for local area magazines and ran a fashion blog, so when Stephanie contacted me to do a shoot for her blog + online store, I couldn’t say no!

I met Himanshu and Shuchi on a sunny Saturday afternoon at the Georgetown waterfront. After they complimented me on my camera, we got to talking and I handed them my business card thinking nothing of it. A week later, Himanshu emailed me saying that he was planning on proposing the very next week after we had met! How fortuitous!

With all this rain we have been having, Stephanie & Nick were honestly blessed to have had a stunning, sunny outdoor ceremony! The two had an intimate wedding in Alexandria and were surrounded by family and friends as they said “I Do” at Cedar Knoll Inn. This was my first time shooting at this location and I can’t wait to return!
