During Cherry Blossom season, I had the pleasure of photographing Angelica and Melissa. These two are the perfect match: Angelica is a local wedding planner and Melissa is a photographer herself! These two drove down from Maryland to have a mini sweetheart session in the sun with me at Haines Point!

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.

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!

Amy and Cam braved the cold weather to have their iconic Jefferson engagement session at the first week of spring! Since it was an overcast morning, we started this session at 8AM! We had the Jefferson Memorial all to ourselves and were met with nothing but even light! We explored all around the tidal basin before heading to Alexandria where these two lovebirds live.

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.
