Andrea and Kyle had a beautiful traditional wedding ceremony and reception at the STUNNING Rust Manor House in Virginia. They celebrated with their closest family and friends in a religious ceremony on the lawn. It was beautiful and I can swear tears filled my eyes when they finished with a group prayer with their bridal party. It was a stunning day and I especially love the images of all of their special details!Read More

Jordan and Jeff had a small, emotional, intimate wedding with 20 guests. They started their day by getting ready with their friends and family in adjacent rooms, had their first look in front of the doors where they met, and read personalized letters to each other. This was the perfect way to start a wedding day that was focused on being surrounded by their loved ones. Jordan's stunning rose bridal gown was perfect for her and the unique, elegant style of their wedding.
These two lovebirds got married in the beautiful Carlyle House Gardens, which if you don't know, is truly a garden oasis in the city of Alexandria. They finished off the night with a private reception dinner at Virtue Feed and Grain. Everything was personalized by the bride and groom and involved their loved ones in any way possible. I am so glad I had the opportunity to help document this couple's day because it was truly so personal to them and so full of love and happy tears.Read More
Okay I shot this stunning, tender, emotional wedding a few months ago and I am sure I was the epitome of the heart-eyes emoji all day! These two did what I hope everyone does, went beyond the norm, and made every area of their day their own. From the personalized tie bars, the unique (but amazing!) colors, the Spanish and English fusion decorations, their five cakes made by Joe's sister (swoon!) and the fact that they ended the night with the tradition of Cuban Crazy Hour!Read More
This post has been a long time coming and I am so happy to announce that this editorial has been published on Catalyst Wedding Co.! Catalyst Wedding Co. is all about celebrating the diversity of the human race and celebrating people and couples of all shapes, sizes, races, religions, genders (or lack thereof), and anything else you can imagine. SO to be published on a site that supports what I believe in so fully was an honor, and one I hope to have a gain someday.
I had the amazing opportunity to photograph this wedding editorial earlier in 2017 and it was a huge project. We ended up with 22 vendors and I am forever thankful to everyone who helped bring this vision to reality. We were all so inspired by the style and the vibe of the new Williamsburg Hotel in Brooklyn and this stylish and glam editorial was the end result of the inspiration.Read More
If you know anything about what inspires me, getting to photograph in a quaint city, and a floral paradise in one day is a DREAM. I love the energy of cities like Alexandria that are just big enough to be a city, but have the character of a small town and I'm obsessed with being in nature. So Alexandria + River Farm (The American horticulture Society's headquarters) was hands down an amazing wedding day.
Not only did this wedding make me itch to photograph again in both fabulous places ( hint-hint ;) ), but it was the perfect example of how much more beautiful a wedding day is when you throw all your worries (like makeup or running late) out the window and just FEEL every moment of the day. Emily and Ryan were so joyous and emotional all throughout their gorgeous day and that makes me love the images so SO much more.Read More
As a photographer, and more generally as a bubbly person, I'm drawn to couples that are crazy-in-love, detail-oriented, and a little funky. Kristy and Derek were all three of these! Working with these two energetic, party-loving, fun people was a whirlwind of a day, but still oh so sweet!
Below are some highlights from their day! Can you tell I loved that river??Read More
Christy & Mark's summer wedding day at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club Ballroom was stunning and amazingly fun. The forecast was a little crazy for this fab's couple's big day. You can even see below the crazy storm sky we got right before the ceremony was supposed to start! In true Chesapeake Bay style the storm was over in 20 minutes and the skies flooded with sunlight. It was still raining during the ceremony but all Christy and Mark noticed were each other.Read More
