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 […]

Halfway through this darling engagement session, Brittany and Andrew felt as though they had to confess something to me… They were UNC alumni! In college, there was no feud more powerful than the one between UNC and Duke but weirdly enough, even though I am a Blue Devil through and through, some of my very best friends went to UNC! Now in DC, I actually LOVE running into anyone who shared my North Carolina experiences: He’s Not, TOP) and Franklin Street were all a major part of my college experiences too! So Brittany & Andrew’s “confession was met with laughter and heaps of inside jokes.

Tory and Andrew… what a pair. If there was ever a lucky wedding day, this was it. The forecast said rain for DAYS but when it came time for these nuptials, we got even light and perfect temps! We even got a double rainbow at the end of the night! These two big Italian families had a beautiful day starting with champagne in the morning and Blue Valley wine at night. The affair was made even more special knowing that Andrew has a deployment coming up. Everyone got to cherish seeing these two celebrating the happiest day of their lives’ together in front of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

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?’

Would you just look at these two!! Bridgette and Doug were pure magic at Goodstone Inn. These two braved the drive in the rain from Maryland to make this session happen. Bridgette had her hair trial earlier in the day so we figured what a better way to make the most out of a good hair day than to schedule photos afterwards!

Michelle contacted me a few weeks before this session; she and her fiancé Tommy had decided to elope and wanted to get married within the month. Just them, and officiant and me. We planned a time and location but these two just couldn’t wait! In true elopement fashion, they went down to the Fairfax Courthouse and tied the knot before this photo session even took place! They chose Bear’s Den because it represented them: they love the outdoors and are a super adventurous couple that needs no frills or pomp and circumstance of a traditional wedding.

Now, it’s not often I do maternity sessions, but when my sister-in-law is expecting, I can’t say no! Jenni is my sister by marriage but she would totally be my sister by choice. Not only did we both marry Tuben men but we also have the same taste in food, weddings and are crazy cat ladies together! We got to know each other during her wedding planning process a few years back. Their initial plan was to tie the knot on the very property we took these photos on! Since the rain changed their plans, we headed out to her grandmother’s property in Marshall, Virginia to take the portraits Jenni always wanted!

It’s super rare that I accept maternity clients but when a local photography pal of mine reached out to say how darling this couple was, I couldn’t help but say yes! Adleigh & Chace are a photographer’s dream. They trusted any pose that I put them in and had fun with each other! We played around a lot with the potential locations but eventually decided on St. John’s Ruins in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. This gave the two a natural backdrop with the option for a few water inspired snaps at the end.

Ah yes, the age-old question: Do I need a wedding planner? The answer is an overwhelming YES. What most brides don’t realize is that, no matter what, you will have a wedding planner. If you don’t hire a professional, this job will either fall to you, your photographer, your mother, or a team of drunken bridesmaids. This is not to say that any of these people can do this job or are in the least bit qualified for it… but one way or another, your wedding will go on. Whether you want it to run smoothly without stress is up to you.

It’s our second Christmas as husband and wife and good news… we’re still married! This year has been filled with travels, family time and good old fashion couch time.
