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 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!

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!

Alright folks, this post was a long time coming. Today I want to talk to you about FILM. No, not video… shooting in real honest to god physical film like your parents had on their wedding day. I started shooting film in college when I had my first ever dark room class. I was able to develop my own film (with chemicals that the Duke Lab paid for). I loved it then but in the age of digital, I never thought I would return to it.

When you meet and fall in love working on the hill, it stands to reason that you take your engagement photos in front of the Capitol! Leti and Stephen actually met while working in this very building. Their friendship/working relationship turned to romance once they changed jobs and the rest is history! We decided to hit the mall at sunrise to get some glowy DC light and boy am I glad we did!

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?’

I learn so much about human relationships by photographing anniversary sessions. Because I shoot mostly weddings and engagements, I most often see couples at the beginning stages of their relationship. Anniversary sessions have shown me that I love getting to see more seasoned couples into a few years of their marriage. The way they interact, talk about their lives now and the things that fill their lives are so different.

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.
