Don’t want to venture into Washington DC for your session and deal with potential traffic or crowds? Northern Virginia is a beautiful area with many great engagement session locations to choose from, not far from DC. I’ve lived in NoVA my whole life and I feel like I am always still discovering new spots! Here […]
This Shenandoah adventure session gave me everything I needed to create the perfect experience: Two of the most genuine and in love people I’ve ever met, endless laughter, jokes and the best time, and the most beautiful sunset I’ve witnessed in the national park. l’ll never forget this session!

The thickest fog blanketed where we were in Shenandoah National Park for the beginning AND end of our session and it was absolutely magic. But you know what?

BEHIND THE LENS
Ever-focused on light and the thrilling art of creation; found in the perfectly, imperfect moments of real life.
