Carmela and James and I met at one of my favorite coffee shops, Republik Coffee Bar, for a photography consult with their wedding planner and parted ways confirmed in the books!

Carmela and James Jefferson Memorial Engagement Session

I met up with Marilou and George for their sunrise engagement session at the Jefferson Memorial shortly after the sun rose up over the gorgeous blooms. Crowds were already appearing, but I was confident we’d find some picture-perfect spots free of tourists and fellow portrait-takers! The blooms and trees screamed spring, but let me tell […]

Mariane has always been such a kind person since I met her when we were both in undergrad at George Mason University. She’s the kind of woman that we should all hope to be a little more like: diligent, organized, timely, detail-oriented, but also generous, intentional, thoughtful, and joyful.

Mariane & Michael Jones Point Park Engagement Session
