Sylvanside Farm Wedding: Jackie + Jon-Erik

2020 was the year full of surprises for everyone. Some bad and some very unwelcome surprises. But let it be known, there were some good things that came out of this year.

Decatur House Wedding: Jeanna + Michael

This wedding. Oh man, oh man! What a good one it was! Jeanna + Michael were supposed to get married on May 30, 2020. But #thanksCOVID, everything was moved to a later date when DC started opening up again. Jeanna and Mike were married in October (on a gloriously sunny day that felt like Spring) […]

Married: Rachel + Ramesh

Even though most of my weddings have been postponed to later in the year or next year, I’m really loving these micro weddings. I selfishly love them because I get more time with just the bride and groom. But I am still so missing the big celebrations and can’t wait to get back to them. […]

Married: Laura + Brian, Sequoia Restaurant – Georgetown

Oh Laura + Brian. I LOVE them! I had such a privilege to not only be their photographer, but just to get to know these wonderful people. They both have such infectious personalities and joy. There was really no posing them when doing their photos, I just let them be and they did all the […]

Married: Nicole + Christian, Whitehall Estate

Nicole and Christian came to me from my April couple, Nicole + Pete. Pete and Christian are brothers and yes, they both married girls named Nicole.
