Ashley and Will had one of my favorite wedding styles. The bride had every single detail laid and out ready when I arrived at the Hay Adams Hotel and each spot was an iconic Washington D.C. location! We began the morning in a suite overlooking the White House and drove to a stunning cathedral before ending the night at St. Francis Hall! What a combination of scenery!

St. Francis Hall Wedding | Hay Adams Wedding | DC Wedding Ashley and Will

These two have been together for over 5 years! Can you believe it!? Brian ended up proposing while the couple was beach vacationing and it was an easy YES for Rachel! After many years and fun adventures together, these two are planning an elegant Great Marsh wedding for next May! I can’t wait to see their Just Married smiles on their perfect spring day! Here are my favorite shots from their classic DC engagement session.

These two have a very cool history. They actually met online but come to find out, their families are from the same small town in India and their grandfathers used to be NEXT DOOR NEIGHBORS. How crazy is that!? I can’t believe that these two would find one another hundreds of miles away decades after their families knew one another. I think it’s safe to say that fate stepped in here.

Christina contacted me this spring to do anniversary photos while her and her husband were on vacation in DC. This was be a very special 8 year anniversary trip because it was be their first trip ever away from their 16 month old daughter! The two flew from Michigan for some sunshine and DC eats before our sunrise session at Jefferson and Lincoln memorials.

Is it October yet?! Aidan and Greg are my first clients to book me less than 4 months before wedding day! It’s actually very fitting with their personalities. These two value love and none of the pomp and circumstance that surrounds wedding day. They are having a small ceremony at the Josephine Butler Center which they want to feel more like a casual party & cocktail hour with friends. This may be the first time I will not be documenting getting ready or detail shots on wedding day!

If I could use one word to describe Ashley and Eric it would be ‘chic’. These two have insane style and chemistry. Eric is a walking J.Crew add (complete with glasses optional ensembles) and Ashley could be a fashion blogger/social media icon. This stunning pair decided on the Jefferson Monument at sunrise and Old Town Alexandria as their second location. I just love the summer light in the morning time.

This editorial is super close to my heart. The idea behind these images is inclusivity, sisterhood and authenticity. This project was planned, styled and executed by a team of women wedding professionals in the DC area. Our experiences in the wedding industry and the venue inspired our vision.

Not only is this engagement a personal favorite because of the location but it’s also a favorite because MY GAL PAL KATIE IS ENGAGED! I met Katie almost 4 years ago when I was running around my apartment complex. She was walking her dog Windsor and I just had to stop and say hello. After a few chance encounters, we found that we had heaps in common: we love dance parties, photography and we’re both in education. As two girls in their twenties tend to do, we started watching the Bachelor together every Monday! Although she moved from the neighborhood, we kept our Monday night tradition and stayed friends through the stressors of building our businesses and figuring out life in DC.

I have ALWAYS wanted to shoot at Federal Triangle!! I am so so happy that Ritzy and Koji jumped on board with my vision! We both have the same taste in cityscapes and love all things french. We began our morning at Lincoln and ended in the middle of DC for from European inspired backdrops. Cafe inspired engagement photos? Yes please!

I will never stop thanking Pinterest for connecting me with Shannon and Ben. Shannon wanted some quintessential DC engagement photos and my goodness we got them! It was a little foggy at sunrise at the Jefferson Memorial but that didn’t stop us from getting amazing images! Shannon is also my favorite because she read all of my blog posts! She wore a maxi dress AND brought her sister as a dog handler. Hello perfect client.
