During Cherry Blossom season, I had the pleasure of photographing Angelica and Melissa. These two are the perfect match: Angelica is a local wedding planner and Melissa is a photographer herself! These two drove down from Maryland to have a mini sweetheart session in the sun with me at Haines Point!

Renee and Eric are my ideal clients. They are game for almost any photo suggestion, are madly in love and are cute as hell. These two wanted classic DC photos before heading off to tie the knot in Mexico! Eric works a lot near the capitol and is very into visual arts so was super involved in the creative process which I LOVED! These guys had a clear vision and it was a JOY executing it!

Callie & Stephen were the sweetest clients! These cuties were my 5th session of cherry blossom week and they got the perfect light. Callie had seen my cherry blossom engagement sessions online and reached out for their very own springtime photos. They wanted two different looks so we traveled to the Smithsonian gardens to see the magnolias in bloom afterwards.

As soon as I Facetimed Marie & Rachel, I knew we were the perfect fit. These two love hanging out at the brewery with their pupper, relaxed evenings by the water and each other. After hearing about their wedding vision at Stone Tower, I could so easily picture a day filled with good times and amazing friendships. If their engagement session was any indication of wedding day, it’s going to be amazingly fun, beautiful and laid back!

I first met Katie & Jake in my living room! I usually never do in person consultations but this pair knew it was such a big decision that they wanted to meet face to face… even Katie’s parents tagged along! As we sat in my condo, we immediately clicked, all 5 of us! The easy jokes and classic wedding plans were as if I was in a dream.

Ashley & Nissim, what a pair! What’s crazy about this couple is that they actually live in my neighborhood! For our consult, Ashley just walked the 2 minutes to our place right next door! What a small world! When planning this session, Ashley knew she wanted these classic pink DC trees. We actually had to move our original date for this groom’s trip to Israel but our reschedule was met with perfect weather!

Erika & Spencer actually met while working at hot dog place! You would never ever suspect their How They Met story to be so quirky when these two are so glamorous. After a few snaps, I suggested that we do a few serious poses to which they replied “oh that’s way more us anyways!” The amount of mood and romance in each shot makes this session one of my personal favorites.

Ellie & Joseph are a classic D.C. couple- they have insane style and are ADORABLE. These two actually fell in love after their first ever experience on Hinge! They both were not super into online dating so it’s a good thing they were each other’s first date on any dating app! These D.C. cuties will tie the knot in Charleston where Joseph’s family resides and I’m sure it’ll be an affair to remember!

Would you believe me if I told you that these two hired me at 11pm the night before their sunrise engagement session? Their photographer fell ill and since this pair works around the clock in the medical field, this was the only day they could make work! I’m so glad I could serve a couple in love that serves humanity!

Alicia and Kenny were visiting just in time for the cherry blossoms! These two eloped and and never actually got formal portraits captured so they thought they should get all gussied up and celebrate their love with an anniversary session! These two met in DC before their trip to Korea so it seemed fitting that they would snap photos where it all began.
