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.

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.

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!

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.

This couple definitely affirms that I have finally reached my ideal client. Stef and Mark are basically the exact people I would choose to photograph all day long. They’re goofy, super in love and have two cats. What more could you ask for!? When planning their engagement session, we considered a bunch of locations but eventually settled on Bear’s Den.
