journal

So often in life, we don’t slow down to really appreciate the every day, the usual, the mundane. So much goes uncaptured. That said, I wanted to take 30 minutes on moving day to memorialize our first day in our new home in Alexandria, Virginia.

Northern Virginia Lifestyle Photographer | Move in Day Session | Personal Post

Today I want to share a less glamorous part of my job: behind the scenes. I have to admit, on wedding day… I WORK. I sweat, I run, I sometimes trip and fall. But I will pretty much go to any lengths to get the perfect images for my couples. Every year, I create a folder of behind the scenes images from my second shooters. This year, I decided to share some of my favorites. While I don’t look my most glamorous on the job, you can see the joy my work brings me in almost every image.

2018 Behind the Scenes | Virginia Wedding Photographer Life | Personal Post

Judee & Justin, what a pair! These two are first time expecting parents and I could not be more thrilled to have documented this part of their journey. This may be the last set of images they have together as a party of 2! They are expecting identical twins in the next few months and will be surprised by the gender on delivery day!

Washington DC Maternity Photos | Thomas Jefferson Memorial Maternity Session | Judee & Justin

Christina and Shaun messaged me about snapping their engagement photos this summer. The two actually live in Chicago (where they got engaged) but their love story began in DC. They had their first date at Cylde’s in the district and their love story grew, eventually leading them to their life together in Illinois. Shaun proposed the day before her birthday over dinner before meeting a bunch of their close friends to celebrate.

Washington DC Engagement Photos | Jefferson Memorial + Georgetown Engagement | Christina and Shaun

Lately, I have been getting a lot of inquiries for Lifestyle sessions. While I focus primarily on weddings and engagements, I will make certain exceptions (mainly for past clients and friends) and delve into the world of family and lifestyle photography. I wanted to create this resource for my clients to explain the kind of photography I do and do not do when it comes to these sessions! Definitely reach out for pricing and availability if the info below applies to you!
