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!

Never has there ever been a goofier groom than Rob. I think I laughed the entire 2 hour session with these two. Rob’s sense of humor made this engagement session a breeze because he always made Renee smile from ear to ear! We woke up super early to walk around Jefferson and then headed to Lincoln. Even though Lincoln was under construction, you can hardly tell!

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.

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.

Can you imagine a better setting than the Anderson House for a DC Wedding? While the District of Columbia has some stunning wedding venues, the Society of the Cincinnati has it all: an elegant European vibe with some stunning outdoor spaces. The newly painted black doors make for a classic portrait backdrop and the pool patio area is a perfect setting for a cocktail hour or some small personal vows.

Becky and David… what a pair. David and I go way back to the Teach for America days so it was an extremely unique pleasure to see this gregarious groom take the sweetest bride of all time as his wife! These two planned the most quintessential DC wedding. Getting ready at the Phoenix Park Hotel, portraits at Union Station and nuptials overlooking the Capitol Building at Capitol View 400.

I had the absolute BEST morning with Emily & Nima. The two were a bit nervous at first because they had never had their portraits professionally done but, I must say, they did EXCELLENTLY! I think the champagne helped a bit 😉 We decided to snap sunrise engagement portraits at the Jefferson memorial. This was actually AFTER peak bloom and most of the cherry blossoms had died but we got lucky with one tree and crab apple blooms!

Today, I wanted to share all of my thoughts, feels and snaps behind my incredible labor of love on my blog. This was hands down the hardest thing I have ever done in my photography career. I’m not going to lie, hosting a workshop is tough. It was the first thing in my business I felt nervous about and I had serious doubts leading up to May: What if people didn’t buy tickets? What if attendees walk away feeling disappointed? What if I failed? Well, I’m here to tell you it was all worth it. The feeling of being able to give business owners tools to become more successful is an all time high feeling for me.
