RECENT WORK AND MUSINGS
The vibes and weather couldn’t have been more ideal for Claire & Chris’s classic Georgetown engagement session in D.C.! As a place that’s special to them, it was a no-brainer that we did their session here and, man, was it a beautiful night! We explored the charming streets and cobblestones and let the light lead […]
Amanda & Anthony’s Fall District Winery DC Wedding was filled with so much fun and love! We kicked off the day at the beautiful Thompson Hotel, before heading to their Catholic ceremony at St. Peter’s Church in Capitol Hill. With a considerable gap between the ceremony and the reception, we seized the opportunity to create […]
Rachel and Chris’s romantic neutral king family vineyards wedding nestled in Virginia wine country was truly so special. We were graced with such insanely beautiful and unexpected weather, in the middle of a miserable weekend where it down poured all day Friday and Sunday. Rachel said it was her dad showing up and it was […]
The beautiful rich tones of fall came alive in Serena and Jack’s luxurious fall Meridian House wedding celebration even on a dreary, rain-filled weekend! This day was a masterpiece of timeless elegance and chic details, thoughtfully curated for two of the kindest souls. It was such a privilege to capture the beauty and love between […]
Not only is the Blair House is steeped in rich history, but it’s also a place that’s near and dear to these two, so it was the upmost honor to get the opportunity to capture Claire & Nico’s Blair House engagement session! If you’ve never heard of it, The Blair House holds a special place […]
Get ready to put on your dancing shoes and transport yourself back in time to the most epic wedding celebration ever! I had the pleasure of capturing Lindsey and JC’s colorful disco-themed fall wedding, which was bursting with funky retro vibes. With the bride’s stationery design skills on full display, the paper goods were nothing […]
CITY WEDDINGS! We love them and their chic sophistication and history. They are so popular and have been for years, for good reason! However, there are a lot of logistics to keep in mind when you’re getting married in the city, versus say a quiet vineyard in the countryside of Virginia. So I thought I’d […]
I have had the privilege of capturing countless beautiful wedding days, but one of my favorite parts has always been (and I think will always be) seeing the wedding bouquet come together on the big day! There’s something so magical about a stunning wedding bouquet and how it compliments the photos. It’s not just a […]
“Rain or Shine” That was the the motto of these two avid outdoors lovers, and one that couldn’t have been more fitting as it POURED for hours during their Rawlings Conservatory Baltimore Elopement. I’ve shot in rain many times in my career, but never quite like this day. We shifted plans, embraced it all and […]
Capturing this fall Shenandoah adventure engagement was such a honor. Barbara and Cristian have been together for 10 years (they met when she was 15 and he was 17 – truly precious!) and are the definition of best friends in love! They own their own business in DC (and are absolutely killing it!), and spend […]
BEHIND THE LENS
Ever-focused on light and the thrilling art of creation; found in the perfectly, imperfect moments of real life.
My goal every time I pick up my camera is to create an atmosphere that invites my subjects to show up as their honest and truest selves allowing me to capture the feeling of this irreplaceable moment in time. Storytelling is at the heart of it all, and being entrusted to capture that for my couples will forever be one of the greatest honors.
