When a couple wants to bring their 3 dogs to an engagement session, you know I’m down! I had an absolute blast photographing these 5 and was so thankful this bride brought her momma along to help wrangle! I love the shades of blue in contrast with the grassy fields of the rolling hills! I […]

Siobhan and Ryan wanted a field engagement session and I knew exactly where to take them. Their vision was tall grass and a sweeping landscape in Northern Virginia so I immediately thought of Manassas Battlefield. I love when the land dries to we can play around in the weeds. Here are my favorite images from […]

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 […]

Julie and Shane are one of a kind. These two love birds are so charismatic in front of a camera that I could photograph them for years and years! While this shoot was the perfect elopement inspiration, these two are actually expecting their first kiddo this year! I also had the pleasure of photographing them in France last summer so looking at these images gives me all the feels.

Time after time I receive questions about engagement spots with mountain overlooks. My more adventurous hiking couples want pictures that are true to their relationship, pictures of them seeking adventure. I decided to put together this little list to help anyone seeking stunning Virginia mountain views.

Kelly & Jordan have been planning their engagement photos for months! They knew they wanted fall inspired photos and decided on Great Falls because they love to wander and hike together. Since they are getting married in St. Louis, they decided to snap pictures of a place that reminds them of their love at home here in VA.

The best way to described Abby and Mike is through the last 10 minutes of their wedding day. Sweaty and excited from dancing, they were the last two on the dance floor thanking the vendors and hugging their drunk friends who were lingering the longest. A jacketless Mike and a balero-less Abby requested one last photo with the mutual friend that introduced them as a couple. Before running through their sparklers, Mike had me shove late night Taco Bell Burritos in his suit before booking it to their after party.

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.

Is it October yet?! Aidan and Greg are my first clients to book me less than 4 months before wedding day! It’s actually very fitting with their personalities. These two value love and none of the pomp and circumstance that surrounds wedding day. They are having a small ceremony at the Josephine Butler Center which they want to feel more like a casual party & cocktail hour with friends. This may be the first time I will not be documenting getting ready or detail shots on wedding day!
