I actually cannot handle the cuteness of this session! Evan and Dustin decided to renew their vows this year in a small ceremony at Morias Vineyards and I was lucky enough to document the day.

Morais Vineyards Wedding | Virginia Vow Renewal | Northern Virginia Wedding Photographer Kir Tuben | The Sandersons

The second Kailey inquired, I knew she was the bride for me. This gal is a vlogger, chic fashionista and has the same taste in movies (SO many Notebook references made on wedding day). She and Ryan were high school sweethearts and Ryan knew from their very first phone conversations that Kailey was the one. […]

I have known Jeff a since my college days! We both went to Duke together and ran in similar circles. In fact, he and my hubby were in the same fraternity! When he and his fiance Michelle reached out for engagement photos, I was over the moon excited! We had a little scheduling snafu since […]

Old Town Alexandria Engagement | Northern Virginia Wedding | Michelle + Jeff

Ever wonder what an hour of portraits on wedding day would look like? Christina and Alex hired me for just that!! Usually, on wedding day, you usually have a grand total of 30 minutes of newlywed portraits on wedding day… and for these two, it was even less! There was a heatwave on their special […]

This wedding was a decade in the making. 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 […]

I have been waiting about 2 years to photograph these two again. I got to photograph Ashleigh and Ryan when they were living abroad in Australia! I visited Sydney for a vacation with my friend Margot and we linked up through Instagram. It feels like it has been decades since that trip. Since then, these […]

Dulany’s Overlook Wedding | Maryland Wedding Photographer Kir Tuben | Ashleigh + Ryan

Brian and Rachel tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at Great Marsh Estate this May and I cannot handle how perfectly the day went. I don’t like using the word perfect because I feel like it devalues the word as it gets used too frequently, but this wedding you guys!!!! Rachel & Brian were cool as cucumbers all day because they have known this day would come since they met in ELEVENTH GRADE. Their families were incredible, their friends looked like models but were extremely helpful and kind.
