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 […]

Capturing this fall Shenandoah adventure engagement was such a honor.

Rachel and Kevin are avid hikers and lovers of the outdoors, so it was only fitting that we met up at Stony Man Shenandoah National Park for an adventure engagement session. Slightly warm with a breeze, we truly had the best day for it! We first met up at a nearby overlook and then made […]
I had been eagerly awaiting meeting Alexis and Jeff ever since our first phone call when they were inquiring with me for their wedding day!

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.
