Ashleigh & Brian – Potomac River Engagement Shoot



Brian warned me to wear sturdy shoes because there was a “little bit of hiking” involved… ha! More like rock climbing. Okay, I’m kind of exaggerating here, but you try crossing streams and rock scrambling with all your camera gear… I was sore the next day! But seriously, one of my favorite parts of being a photographer is getting to see everyone’s hidden gems around the area. I would have never known about this place without Brian taking us there but it was stunningly beautiful. This was such a fun way to spend a gorgeous morning, and Ashleigh and Brian were so easy to talk to, even as I was still waking up. :) Ashleigh is super talented and owns a custom invitation and stationery business, so make sure to check it out. Can’t wait to see what she comes up with for her epic New Year’s Eve wedding. (But no pressure! Haha.)

Becky & Eric – Silver Swan Wedding Photography



Becky and Eric had a super sweet wedding at the beautiful Silver Swan Bayside. It was never quite sunny, but it never rained either! And then right at sunset the sky got crazy cool and even though I had plenty of pictures, I made Becky and Eric come out for one last time and was so glad that I did. :)

Lauren & Chad – Belmont Manor Maryland Wedding Photography



Lauren and Chad are both travel nurses, which is how they met. They’ve been some fabulous places together (as evidenced by the travel-themed reception tables and wedding details) and I know they are looking forward to visiting plenty of future destinations as husband and wife! Chad is from Texas and it was a highlight for me to hear the awesome Bachelor Boys Band play some Alan Jackson!

Lindsey & Doug – 1840s Ballroom Baltimore Wedding Photography



Lindsey and Doug have a really fun “how we met” story – their moms set them up and it actually worked out! Best friends from freshman year at college, Lindsey and Doug’s mothers kept in touch over the years and when Lindsey happened to move to PA for a new job, Doug’s mom was quick to invite her over for a family dinner. Doug was duly impressed, and a few days later Lindsey and Doug were attending a New Year’s Eve party together. And the rest, as they say, is history! (This is the abbreviated version, but I really enjoyed hearing the whole thing!)

Katie & Eric – Pier 5 Hotel Baltimore Wedding Photography



Katie and Eric’s Baltimore Pier 5 wedding could not have been more picture-perfect. Their chemistry was undeniable, and their first look was probably one of my favorites all year! I had so much fun walking around on the water with these two and their bridal party.

Jen & Luke – St Francis Hall Washington DC Wedding Photography



Jen and Luke had the best sense of humor and attitudes on their sweltering wedding day. It was probably the hottest day of the year, but they survived it in style! I loved their sense of playfulness, and especially their hashtag: #letsgetbissi!

Amanda and San made a beautiful baby! This little cutie Julia did so awesome – adorable and sleepy almost the entire time. Love that full head of hair!

Samy & Nik – Lincoln Memorial Washington DC Photography



Samy and Nik were warm and inviting from the moment I met them, and they completely won me over by bringing me lots of chocolate goodies (which I’m actually eating as I type this.) They been married for a number of years now, but unfortunately haven’t been able to live in the same place due to school and work and life. So I knew these photos were special, meant to commemorate Samy’s time in DC before she moves and they turn the page on a new chapter of their lives. Once again, this city at sunrise does not disappoint!

Sarah & Matt – Belvedere Baltimore Wedding Photography



Sarah and Matt’s Belvedere wedding was classic and beautiful and very much “them.” Though dampened (only literally) by a monster storm, they didn’t let that stop the party! Matt spent a long three months carefully planning the perfect proposal and engagement for Sarah, and I know he will put that same attention and detail into their marriage! It’s easy to see how much these two adore each other.

Connor – Annandale Virginia Newborn Family Photography



I was delighted when Caithlin and Mark contacted me for this family session, and excited to meet their new addition, Connor! I could not get over the full head of hair on this kiddo! So adorable.
