Have you ever photographed in a freezing wind tunnel? Well, after this session, I can accurately say that I have. I am ENDLESSLY impressed with this couple for being such troopers during this session despite the weather. Rachel and Charles rarely lost their smiles even when the temperatures randomly dipped to the 30s! Spring can […]

Amanda works with RSVP catering so she has seen her fair share of weddings and engagements. Having been exposed to a plethora of events, this pair has an amazing vision for how they want to celebrate […]

Amanda and Noah came to me through one of my all time favorite couples from a few years back so I just knew we would have a fun, relaxed hour at Jefferson. These two are so laid back and such good sports in front of the camera. They even let me practice using my Contax!

Aidan and Greg had the sweetest wedding this fall. They decided to make it feel super comfortable and causal for all their loved ones involved! These two hosted 54 people in the Josephine Butler Parks Center to watch them exchange hand written vows in the small ballroom during sunset. Aidan and Greg decided on a first look in Meridian Hill Park so they could greet their guests to he ceremony as they arrived!

What a bombshell couple these two are!! Diane is actually Ben’s best friend’s little sister! I have known the Mechners since Ben and I started dating so this was a blast to finally meet Diane and Cam in person! 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 USC and her at UVA, but they managed to make the distance work. Like a true romantic, Cam proposed to Diane in the same parking lot in the same manner he asked her to homecoming all those years ago: he decorated her car with a very different question- ‘Will you marry me?’

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.

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.

When I think about my ideal client, I picture these two. Haley and Jesse are fun, stylish and overall, just two awesome people in love. Our session felt more like a hang-out than work. Haley works in events (hello dream bride) and Jesse does corporate real estate which, as someone who love business and buildings, I am fascinated by. To top it all off, they live in the amazing Apollo in downtown DC. I have been dying to photograph in this stylish building since it has opened and finally got the chance thanks to these darlings!

I could photograph Marcella and Jamie all day long. These two were naturals in front of the camera. We woke up at 6am to be among the first at the Jefferson Memorial during peak cherry blossom bloom in Washington, D.C. It was actually about 40 degrees but you would never know with how amazing Marcella was in the cold (even in a dress)! Planning a photography session during “peak bloom” can be extremely challenging. The forecast this year had falsely placed the blooms a month early! They can bloom anytime between mid-March and early April so this requires a lot of flexibility on the part of both the clients and photographer! We definitely got lucky with our timing.
