Caitlin + Paul: American Pharmacists Association

You wouldn’t think when you hear the name “American Pharmacists Association” that it’s a wedding venue. But oh man, it’s such a classic DC spot to be married. It’s right across the street from the Lincoln Memorial and has that gorgeous marble architecture that is so so useful in photographs (hello, natural reflectors!). Caitlin and […]

Seven Oaks Lavender Farm: Cady + Alan

When I found out I was pregnant last March, I knew I needed to hire an assistant to help me with bags and such during my weddings. Weddings are a ton of work being on your feet for 12 hours NOT being pregnant. So you can imagine the kind of toll it would take while […]

Annapolis Wedding: Brad + Alyssa

Why not start 2019 off with blogging more? Since my next wedding isn’t until April this year, I have a lot of time (hopefully) during maternity leave to blog all the weddings and engagement shoots from 2018. So, expect more blogging from me this year! That IS IF I can get on a good schedule […]

Married: Josh + Cara, Airlie, VA

Can the weather just agree to NOT rain the rest of wedding season, please? May was the worst month for all the May brides. It seemed as though it rained EVERY weekend. But, that didn’t stop those couples from enjoying the most amazing day of their lives. And this was true for Cara and Josh […]

I met Courtney and Leo at Agricultural History Farm Park. It’s the park from a wedding I did with Danny + Tana last August. She saw their blog and decided from their blog that she wanted to book with me. YAY! We had so hoped for more greenery, but like you all know, the weather […]

Want to know a fun fact about myself and this bride? I was her counselor at a camp in New Hampshire. For realz! She and her twin sister were in my group a few years in a row and I just LOVED having both of them. They were both so sweet and so in love […]

Rosanna and Kenneth have MAD dancing skills. Like MAD. How do I know that? Well, there were guests from a wedding I shot last year. I had taken a really good sequence of their dancing at Tana + Danny’s wedding that I put them in my sample album I made of that wedding. So…yeah, I’m […]

Married: Amy + Mark, Old Silk Mill

If ever there was such a joyful and laid back couple, it was Amy + Mark. Amy found me when I was at the beginning of restarting my business again on Thumbtack. I sent her a quote and then quickly deleted the app because I didn’t have much luck with it and was getting frustrated. […]
