Jasmin & Mike – Patterson Park Engagement



Jasmin is one of those people you can talk to for the first time and feel like you’ve known forever. We had the best time chatting and getting to know each other at the initial meeting, and then throwing Mike into the mix at the engagement session just made it even more fun. He clearly adores her, and it isn’t hard to see why! Can’t wait to witness more of these two in action at their wedding a few short weeks. :)

Sarah & Matt – Grand Historic Venue Wedding Photography



I really loved hanging out with Sarah and Matt on their wedding day and honestly can’t say enough good things about these guys! Sarah looked beyond gorgeous, and her smile was so genuine all day long. And Matt’s personality is the perfect complement to Sarah’s. It was two whole years ago that I photographed Sarah’s brother’s wedding, but it seemed like just yesterday when I got to see the family again! They are the sweetest.

Ashlyn & Aaron – Running Hare Vineyard Maryland Wedding Photography



Ashlyn and Aaron’s love is so out of this world, I was seeing stars! No really, this astronomy-themed wedding was from another planet. Okay, okay, I’m done with the puns. But I loved the unique theme and how it illustrated their love perfectly. Meteorites are the oldest material on earth, so Ashlyn carried two small ones tucked into her dress as her “something old”, and Aaron’s ring was fashioned from meteorites as well. What better way to begin a marriage than with something that has endured for years and years and years? I really enjoyed watching these two beautiful people come together and the incredible joy and happiness that was their wedding day.

Anna & Dominic – Annapolis Maryland Engagement Photographer



Welcome to Maryland, you Midwesterners! Anna told me that she’s heard a lot of negativity in this area toward people from the Midwest, so I’m just here to dispel that nonsense. :) Anna and Dominic are pretty new to the area, and it was fun giving them a little tour of Annapolis. We also did this session on their pre-anniversary anniversary, meaning, they are getting married exactly one year from the date of the shoot! Anna and I bonded over not being sports fans while Dominic checked in on his fantasy football team. (Check in? I don’t even know what the proper term is here.) It was a picture-perfect night and I seriously could have photographed these two all day long. Best of luck for your Missouri wedding next year, Anna and Dominic!

Jess & Mark – Tidewater Inn Wedding Photography



The whole time I was at Jess and Mark’s wedding, I was thinking, “These are exactly the kind of people I want to be friends with.” Then I remembered that I am! Their wedding was so much fun and not just because I got sit at a table with my husband and eat dinner and dance (but that definitely helped.) Dan stepped up and shot most all of the reception for me so I could relax and enjoy myself. Congrats Mark and Jess – so happy for you guys!!

Kristina & Matt – Gaithersburg Kentlands Engagement Photography



Kristina and Matt kept me laughing this whole shoot. You can tell they are total theater people, completely used to being in front of an audience, and absolutely hysterical. Whether it was arguing about who slipped who the tongue first on stage, or telling me stories I probably shouldn’t hear about how Matt broke his glasses, it was a good session for sure. We started at the theater in the Gaithersburg Arts Barn where they first met, and then just roamed around the Kentlands chasing all the pretty light.

Brooks – Arlington Newborn Photography



Brooks did so well for his first photo shoot! This little guy was the cutest with his full head of hair, and I’m sure his Blue Steel pose will be breaking hearts soon enough. :) 2015-09-18_0003

Kathy & Gavin – Early Mountain Vineyards Wedding Photographer



Kathy and Gavin are so genuine and their big hearts and emotion were the highlight of my day. My favorite part was watching Gavin tear up as Kathy walked down the aisle, although I have to say their ice cream sundae bar at the reception was a close second. :) As always, Early Mountain Vineyards was the perfect backdrop for this truly beautiful love-filled day.

Stefanie & Doug – Naval Academy / Loews Annapolis Wedding Photography



Stefanie and Doug told me they just wanted a few good pictures, nothing too crazy or time-consuming. What they didn’t tell me was how freakin’ photogenic they would be! The way Doug looks at Stefanie is what every girl hopes for. This wedding was a true joy to photograph, and I’m pretty sure I was smiling nonstop looking at their photos.

Aedan and Rosie – Newborn Photos



Heather and Jason were one of my couples from three years ago and it was a pleasure to see them again! They now have beautiful twin babies – Aedan and Rosie. After a long stay in the NICU, everyone is finally home and doing great. I was so honored that Heather asked me to take some photos, because she is quite a talented photographer herself. I loved capturing all the joy and tenderness in this family, and I have no doubt that Heather and Jason will be (and already are!) awesome parents.
