Married: Rebekah + Elliot, Historic Stonebrook Farm

This wedding is a specially close to my heart. You guys, the bride was one of my campers when I was a counselor at a camp in New Hampshire. During my college years, I spent a few summers in New Hampshire working at a camp. It was the BEST JOB EVER! I loved every bit […]

Erin + Matt: Horse Farm Wedding

Ok, who here loves horses???? Who here once had a monthly magazine subscription to an equestrian magazine even though I was never an equestrian or had any hopes of being an equestrian?

Kathy + Reynold: President Lincoln’s Cottage

Did you all know about President Lincoln’s Cottage in DC? I had no idea it was there! It’s gorgeous and has so much history on that site. It was there that Lincoln developed the Emancipation Proclamation! And it still houses veterans. I think they said the oldest veteran to live there still is over 100 […]

I met Dana + Mark at the National Cathedral back in the beginning of Fall, and good golly Miss Molly, I LOVED Dana + Mark’s engagement shoot! The light […]

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 […]
