Jenna and JJ were introduced by mutual friends. They met at a concert in DC but almost like an episode of How I Met Your Mother, JJ ended up on TWO blind dates at once! He had to run up and down the flights of stairs at the club to entertain two set-ups from different groups of friends that unbeknownst to him, unintentionally fell on the same evening! What are the odds!

Is it October yet?! Aidan and Greg are my first clients to book me less than 4 months before wedding day! It’s actually very fitting with their personalities. These two value love and none of the pomp and circumstance that surrounds wedding day. They are having a small ceremony at the Josephine Butler Center which they want to feel more like a casual party & cocktail hour with friends. This may be the first time I will not be documenting getting ready or detail shots on wedding day!

When you meet and fall in love working on the hill, it stands to reason that you take your engagement photos in front of the Capitol! Leti and Stephen actually met while working in this very building. Their friendship/working relationship turned to romance once they changed jobs and the rest is history! We decided to hit the mall at sunrise to get some glowy DC light and boy am I glad we did!

I learn so much about human relationships by photographing anniversary sessions. Because I shoot mostly weddings and engagements, I most often see couples at the beginning stages of their relationship. Anniversary sessions have shown me that I love getting to see more seasoned couples into a few years of their marriage. The way they interact, talk about their lives now and the things that fill their lives are so different.

If I could use one word to describe Ashley and Eric it would be ‘chic’. These two have insane style and chemistry. Eric is a walking J.Crew add (complete with glasses optional ensembles) and Ashley could be a fashion blogger/social media icon. This stunning pair decided on the Jefferson Monument at sunrise and Old Town Alexandria as their second location. I just love the summer light in the morning time.

Regina and Young wanted a casual session at the Tidal Basin to celebrate their engagement. They felt jeans and a bike ride really expressed who they are as a couple! Young goes on frequent rides with his biking group and he and Regina go on rides together on their ti-bikes on the weekends! It was super clear how natural and at ease these two felt around each other.

Becky and David… what a pair. David and I go way back to the Teach for America days so it was an extremely unique pleasure to see this gregarious groom take the sweetest bride of all time as his wife! These two planned the most quintessential DC wedding. Getting ready at the Phoenix Park Hotel, portraits at Union Station and nuptials overlooking the Capitol Building at Capitol View 400.

The first things most photographers shoot the morning of your wedding are the details of your wedding. This includes all the little things that go into getting ready. To make the day go smoother, you’ll want to have all these things set aside ready to be photographed! Below, I have compromise a list for both brides and grooms to have ready!
