Fall Wedding in DC // Longview Gallery

It’s 2017 and over here we have delivered all the beautiful fall weddings, we have decompressed from the holidays, and are now ready to move full speed ahead into the new year! I can not wait to share every detail that was captured over the past several months.  Let’s pick up right where we left off…

H&M got married in early October.  The day began over at the Marriott Marquis with Bridal Prep , first look, and a few wedding party portraits.  There was some on and off rain that day so we called the Uber and off we went to my back up  portrait location at the National Portrait Gallery! The Ceremony and Reception were held at Longview Gallery.  We had a break in the rain so we were able to take a few portraits in Blagden Alley. 🙂 yay!

The whole party moved next door for the after party at Lost and Found. A little rain didn’t put a damper on this wedding!

 

Here are some of my favorites from the day…

 


None of these moments would have been possible without the amazing Victoria Ruan shooting with me!

Happy New Year! // What Will 2017 Bring?

Santa Baby // Newborn session

Sometimes I am lucky enough to get asked to photograph a newborn.  These sessions can be a challenge because well, it’s a newborn and let’s be honest- They call the shots! This precious Santa Baby was patient and adorable as could be!

I’m excited to show the highlights from this session, Welcome Baby Brynn! Brynn arrived just before Thanksgiving and I got to meet her shortly after with her amazing family.

And, being that it’s the week of Christmas I thought this would be a very timely post!       

Happy Holidays!

The BEST Fried Chicken in DC on 4 Wheels!

Hey there, as the busy wedding season comes to an end for 2016 I thought I would go a different route with this post and share something a bit different with you all. This is very timely given the events that have happened in our country this week.

Recently I had the amazing opportunity to photograph a DC based culinary artist named Mike.  Mike owns a string of food trucks; DC Ballers (Falafel) , Rollin’ Pizza, and Roaming Rooster.  Mike is a Ethiopian- Canadian that came to the US in the mid 90’s to live closer to his family and pursue his dream of starting a food truck empire! Cooking is Mike’s passion, he uses fresh ingredients, and perfected recipes. Oh, and his chicken is free-range and hormone free!

Today, he has one of DC’s most successful food trucks, and unarguably THE BEST fried chicken I’ve ever had!

Here is a look at his business and the incredible people he has on his team…

 

The next time you find yourself in downtown DC around lunchtime look out for one of Mike’s trucks!

Together 10 years! // Glenview Mansion Wedding

Kristen & Jason chose Glenview Mansion in Rockville, MD for their wedding. They gathered with family and close friends on a warm Sunday in late September.  This pair of world travelers met in Egypt 10 years prior, and after a decade of adventures they have spent the last few years in DC.

The day was full of love, joy, and lots of laughter, endless jokes and lots of puns! I don’t think there was a moment when Kristen didn’t have the biggest smile on her face.

Here’s a recap of the day…

Engagement session // at Yards Park with beagle in tow!

Well, it’s been a few weeks since my last post.  We need to catch up! My super busy season is underway and off to a great start.

Today I am delighted to share a really fun engagement photo session from about a month ago.  On an early Sunday morning Holly and Michael, and their adorable little Beagle named Sprocket met up with me at The Yards Park next to the Nationals Baseball stadium (They are huge fans!).  We walked the dock, fetched sticks, and had a wonderful time! Here’s a peek…

Locals Only // Hyattsville, MD Engagement Session

Often I leave my business cards on bulletin boards at cafe’s. It’s not very often that I get a call from one that I have left.  Almost weekly I tack up my card over at my favorite neighborhood coffee shop, Vigilante. A few months ago Meghan and Marshall, who also enjoy Vigilante gave me a call. They saw my card, and they were in search of a wedding photographer! We met at guess where…. our favorite coffee shop!  We hit it off and the rest is history.

These two are getting hitched in Baltimore this fall, so we met up for engagement photos a few weeks ago, and we kept it local!

We started at sunrise in Magruder Park with the couples pup, Booker.  We ended the morning with a hot cup of coffee over at Vigilante.  We had a second meet up a few days later at their home.  M&M make homemade pasta on weekends, YUM.  We ended the evening over at Union Market where the couple enjoys visiting the Rappahannock Oyster Bar .

Here is a look at the highlights…

Sunrise Hike on the Billy Goat Trail // Great Falls Engagement

A few months ago I met with Meghan and Ryan and we chatted about their wedding and what they wanted to do for engagement photos.  I always like to have the engagement photos reflect the couples personalities and I love to include hobbies they enjoy together.  Meghan and Ryan didn’t even have to think about it, they both love to hike.  They suggested we have the photo session on the Billy Goat Trail at Great Falls. A lot of people like to hike this trail so we set out there before the sun and had the rocks to ourselves!  Here are some of the highlights…

Everything’s BLOOMING // DC Engagement

Happy April, Everything is BLOOMING! The Cherry Blossoms have come and gone here in DC.  We have had no shortage of wind and rain the last few weeks but, two weeks ago we had a perfect evening.  I met Shannon and Jonathan over in Eastern Market where we went on a stroll and then we ventured off to Georgetown where we walked along the EMPTY C&O and then along the waterfront where we witnessed one of the most beautiful sunsets and a FULL MOON!

Here is a look at our adventure…
