From the minute I hopped on the phone with Allyson, I knew this would be one of my favorite weddings to capture. Not only her style but also her vivacious personality made this an elegant affair that was an overwhelming treat to attend and photograph. She described Jon as the strong silent type and I […]

I absolutely love it when client suggest engagement locations. I had never heard of Chapman State Park but now, it’s one of my favorite places in the area. This venue has it all: a charming manor, tall grass fields and a small beach at the bottom of the hill. Lisa and Jason like to go […]

Ashley and Nissim had a darling summer wedding on one of the first nice days in August. They threw a Sunday brunch wedding at Airlie Gardens in Warrenton, VA that was full of sunshine and blue grass music. They shared a first look in the gardens behind the main building before signing their ketubah with […]

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. […]

Great Marsh Estate Wedding | Virginia Wedding Photography | Kailey + 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.

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!

Kelly & David’s elopement was a breath of fresh air. There were 15 people in attendance (including myself) but their love filled the entire historic garden. Kelly got ready with the women in her life at the Four Seasons in Georgetown before first seeing her groom at the Tudor Place Historic House & Garden.

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.

Springtime D.C. Cherry Blossom Engagement | Washington DC Cherry Blossom Festival | Callie and Stephen

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.

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.
