I absolutely adore these two. I was lucky enough to snap their snowy proposal in the heart of DC and now I get to work with them (and both their families) on wedding day! Amanda and Nate knew they wanted a garden feel to their engagement and to include their pup! So glad we achieved […]

Trey and Alma wanted a different vibe for their engagement session. They wanted their session to feel modern, fresh and romantic. We worked in a few blurry shots and direct sun to achieve some shadows for their sunrise at the Lincoln Memorial. I just loved their matching suits! What do you all think!?

I will be forever sad that I will not be the one to capture Chris and Ciara’s wedding. These two adorable humans met playing Ice Hockey and fell madly in love. A few years and rescue dogs later, they’re planning their big DC bash for later this year and couldn’t be more excited to finally […]

Rose-Helen and Filippo were my first ‘pink tree’ clients of the year! Knowing that the tidal basin might be shut down due to COVID, we decided to go for magnolia photos instead; and oh boy, was it a treat. We began at sunrise at the Enid A Haupt Garden with their adorable puppy Roots (who […]

When I think ‘classic’ I think of the DC cherry blossoms. Cecilia and John wanted a DC spring engagement session at the Tidal Basin and I was thrilled we were able to give them their dream! With the closures due to the pandemic, I didn’t know how accessible the mall would be but we had […]

Alyssa and Ethan probably had one of my favorite sessions of the year. We knew we wanted cherry blossoms but also knew the tidal basin might be closed due to the pandemic. As it turns out, we went at sunrise on a weekend and had no problem at all with pedestrian access. In fact, these […]

John and Maria found me through past clients and just knew they wanted DC Monument engagement photos. Since Jefferson is under construction and the Capitol is fenced off due to the insurrection, we landed on Lincoln. What a time to be engaged in DC! We woke up early to catch the sunrise light and were […]

Kira and Ben originally planned to get married in Italy but with COVID ruining all destination weddings, they decided that they had waiting long enough to get married….. since high school in fact! They were prom dates!! How adorable is that? When K & B picked this new January date, they had no idea that […]

Elizabeth and Connor met in DC so they just knew they wanted a classic DC engagement session. Although they’ll be getting married in Austin, Texas (where this bride to be is originally from), they wanted to celebrate where they built their life together. We got insanely lucky with the weather and this happened to be […]

I don’t know how to put this yearly post into words. Like many, 2020 was slated to be my best, most profitable year yet… but make plans and the universe laughs. When the pandemic shutdowns began, I assumed quarantine would be over by fall. Welp, the joke was on me and I am always reminded […]
