I think proposals are my all time favorite thing to photograph! I get to play secret agent for a day and play tourist- hiding in plain sight. Matt and Lucy flew in for a quick romantic trip to DC. Little did she know, Lucy would leave the city engaged! Congrats to this happy couple on […]

What is more romantic than a surprise proposal? Jae proposed to Julia on a rainy afternoon in the city. We talked about proposing at Meadowlark but with the rain, Jefferson was the best possible rain plan! A quiet afternoon at the national mall made for a super intimate setting in the district. Congrats to the […]

Erika & Spencer actually met while working at hot dog place! You would never ever suspect their How They Met story to be so quirky when these two are so glamorous. After a few snaps, I suggested that we do a few serious poses to which they replied “oh that’s way more us anyways!” The amount of mood and romance in each shot makes this session one of my personal favorites.

Jenifer and Vincent actually live in California together but seem to be world travelers. These two got engaged in Mexico and were in D.C visiting family this March when they decided to snap engagement photos! They missed the Cherry Blossoms by one week but were determined to get some classic District of Columbia engagement pictures when they were in town so we woke up at sunrise and were met with 30 degree temps and crazy wind! Although this couple seems to be beach enthusiasts, they did fabulously in the cold!

Amy and Cam braved the cold weather to have their iconic Jefferson engagement session at the first week of spring! Since it was an overcast morning, we started this session at 8AM! We had the Jefferson Memorial all to ourselves and were met with nothing but even light! We explored all around the tidal basin before heading to Alexandria where these two lovebirds live.

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!

Elise & Jarrett opted for 2 extremely different portrait locations for their engagement session and I was all about it! We started at the Jefferson memorial at sunrise to get some classic DC portraits and ended with their pup walking around Roosevelt Island!

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 and Shaun messaged me about snapping their engagement photos this summer. The two actually live in Chicago (where they got engaged) but their love story began in DC. They had their first date at Cylde’s in the district and their love story grew, eventually leading them to their life together in Illinois. Shaun proposed the day before her birthday over dinner before meeting a bunch of their close friends to celebrate.

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.
