This was one of my favorite days of the year. I had never met Kelsey and Nate before this but had been working behind the scenes to make sure it was the most memorable day. These two traded their massive Oklahoma wedding for a backyard soirée with 10 people. Not once did they have a […]

Engagement sessions look very different these days but these photos are reason number 756388 why my clients are my favorite.

This session could not have come at a more perfect time. Kacey is an essential healthcare worker but she happened to be on vacation during this stretch of time!

I met Danielle and Doug in 2019 for their DC springtime engagement session at the Washington National Cathedral. I suggested this garden because Danielle asked for locations with a fairytale vibe.
