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 […]

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?’

It’s weird to say that I don’t know if I have ever photographed two people so in love. Every single photograph of these two during candid moments was of them smiling and giggling to each other. When you spend even five minutes around Melissa and Calvin, you just know that they relax one another. They both feel like a deep breath of air to their counterparts.

Allison and Dave are one of the most laid back couples I have worked with. The two met in DC and have lived in the city for years around Logan Circle so it stands to reason that we would snap engagement photos around the place they call home. We started at The Coffee Bar and got super lucky with an early blooming tree nearby!

Tory & Isaac met through mutual friends who stood by their sides as best man and matron of honor at their July wedding at the DC Arts Club. Their intimate city wedding was supposed to be nothing but rain all day but all we saw were tiny droplets here and there. It barely sprinkled on our Lincoln memorial parade as we walked with clear umbrellas in hand.

I cannot say enough about this couple right here. They are kind, caring and fun-loving people who genuinely care about everyone around them. The first thing that happened when I showed up to this wedding was Caroline giving both me and Jenny (the planner) matching gifts! I am currently rocking my custom Kir2ben hat while writing this post!

Well, it FINALLY happened… I got to shoot a carnival engagement! Words cannot express my excitement! I was so thrilled that Sky & Dallen were up for something different. It really felt just like a fun evening at the fair together. I have been obsessed with shooting at a carnival since I was a teenager. I always loved the South Florida Fair growing up and after seeing the Notebook, I was determined to one day capture love at a fair.

Who else is sick of white wedding dresses!? Ok, ok, there is nothing wrong with a classic.. but what about a vow renewal dress? Or maybe you want to depart from the traditional wedding dress and rock something a little more funky to your wedding day.

Not only is this one of my favorite sessions of all time, this is one of my favorite couples of all time! The second I met these two for beers, we felt like old friends. Daniel gets my obscure Mad Men references & Lauren is a hilarious tattooed goddess. We snuck around DC’s best garden, Dumbarton Oaks, right before they closed the doors for renovation until 2018!

I just adore couples that talk about pizza and their animals. Molly and Dan were a blast to hang out with at their engagement session at the Lincoln Memorial. They had just gotten a new puppy named Jake so naturally, labs were a big topic of conversation. The weather was stunning so, naturally, we had to get creative with the tourists around at sunset but these two were troopers waiting for the right moment to snap these images!
