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.

Jenifer and Vincent actually live in California together but seem to be world travelers. These two got engaged in Mexico and were in D.C visiting family this March when they decided to snap engagement photos! They missed the Cherry Blossoms by one week but were determined to get some classic District of Columbia engagement pictures when they were in town so we woke up at sunrise and were met with 30 degree temps and crazy wind! Although this couple seems to be beach enthusiasts, they did fabulously in the cold!

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.

As a Florida gal, it was no surprise that I was in love with Paradise Found. This Pantone concept embraced tropical. This palate encourages bright colors, vibrant hues and palm leaves galore. Coastal brides can easily make this theme work but I was happy to see it come alive in Washington DC! Summer is kickin’ with this tropical bar.

Stroke of Midnight had an extremely elegant color scheme. I also LOVED this shoot because it prominently featured a same-sex couple. I think representation is SO important in the wedding industry so when a national company like Pantone or Wedding Wire elects to create an editorial with two grooms, it makes me incredibly happy. We had an absolute blast while shooting in the Something Vintage warehouse. The entire setting was paradise for any photographer.

Golden Hour was probably my favorite shoot of the Pantone editorial. I find it very rare that couples go for warm and earthy tones on the East Coast so this was a joy to capture. I love the way that these colors looked on both film and digital. Any florals dripping from the ceiling have my heart.

I have always been in love with editorial work, so when Wedding Wire contacted me to partner with Pantone to capture the wedding trends for 2019, I was overjoyed! I was extremely honored to be chosen to photograph 4 different color schemes for this year’s wedding inspiration. I had an insane amount of creative control and was able to contribute to the vision boards, suggested venues and brought my favorite stylist Sincerely Pete on board to help carry out this vision.

This year was surreal. I built my business in ways I never thought possible. I photographed 29 weddings, 61 engagement & lifestyle sessions, 10 boudoir sessions, 2 proposals and 21 mini sessions. I traveled to abroad to Cuba, Tulum, Montreal, cruised Alaska and slept in a car in the Great American West.

These two broke the glass in front of friends and family in an elegant wedding ceremony that made the Wharf one of my new favorite DC locations! Not only do these two have impeccable taste but they are insanely lovely human beings. I think Emily & Toby are the chairpeople of my fan club. Every post, every new scary step in my business, these two support it full throttle. I am so thankful that we were brought together this year and I actually am having post-wedding depression that this soirée is over.

have only cried at 2 weddings this season: this was one of them. Jessica Green hired me to help capture this magical love story in DC and oh man am I glad she did! This was one of the most stylish weddings of 2016. Almila and Cameron got married at the Josephine Butler house this fall which has turned into my favorite venue!
