Engagement Session


Jenn and I clicked almost immediately. We only had a short phone call before she knew she wanted to work with me, and I think we’ve texted and called at least every week since! I have LOVED getting to know her and her sweet Marouane over the last year–especially since their story is so special!! […]

On Sunday August 11th, Andrew and I drove down to Virginia Beach so that I could photograph these two for their engagement session! We were going to make a date day out of it: head down to the city center early and grab some juices, walk around the beach for a smidge after location scouting […]

I met Andrea at a Starbucks during a torrential thunderstorm for a potential bride consult, and what started off as a short overview about everything included in my wedding package turned into a two-hour long conversation about her wedding day dreams and plans. I think that’s when we both knew she was meant to be […]

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 […]

Jasmine, Thad and I met up for a brief mini engagement session late Sunday morning on March 10, 2019. We instantly clicked and my jaw dropped when I saw Jasmine’s STUNNING ball gown and Thad’s suit! They really came dressed to the nine’s! (Hello style inspiration *swoon*). We had such a short session, but I […]

Did you know that I’ve known Kaitlyn since I was 5 years old? That means we’ve known each other for TWENTY years!! (Give or take a year or two). We actually were kindergarten best friends and basically inseparable the entire time we lived in Kentucky. We were both army brats though, so the inevitable occurred […]

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. She brings an infectious energy to […]
