Fall Wedding // Inn at Mount Vernon Farm

This past fall I had the absolute pleasure to go back to the Inn at Mount Vernon Farm in Sperryville, VA to photograph another wedding there. It was Maggie and Will’s BIG DAY and they were surrounded by some really amazing family and friends… and their furry four legged family too! Around every corner I found sentimental details, which led to lots and lots of photos.   These two are also diehard Chicago Cubs fans, though they had hadn’t won the world series quite yet at this point they did have a very special surprise at the end of the ceremony. Here are some highlights from the day…

In Honor of Valentines Day // Ruby Red Fall Wedding

Back in early October I had the absolute honor to photograph my Ice Skating Coach’s Wedding! Let me tell you the pressure was on for this one! We nailed it and took home the gold with Jenny and Nate’s flawless day.  They had a warm and sunny day at Glen Ellen Farm surrounded by family and friends they tied the knot and danced the night away with a bonfire and pig roast!

The wedding party and details were decked out in ruby red, which is fitting for today.  Happy Valentines Day! <3

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!

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…

GreatFalls Wedding //Nod to GoT + a Wine Tasting!

Hello Hello! The Fall 2016 wedding season is in full swing, and while I’ve been finding myself behind the camera most days I had to take a break and share this with you!

In mid-September I had the honor to document M&R ‘s wedding day.  You might remember them from a post a few months back, they are a totally adventurous couple, their engagement session was at Great Falls on the Billy Goat Trail! – Talk about fearless!  So, it was no surprise to me when they agreed to do a little hiking on their wedding day all dressed up.  They got hitched over at Rockwood Manor near Great Falls, with an outdoor ceremony.  Both GoT fans and Wine lovers they included both aspects into their ceremony, which was officiated by her mother!

Here are some highlights…

Wedding Day Recap // S&J

I hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July! I’m back at it here in the office and today I am excited to share this lovely wedding day recap from S&J’s wedding. My amazing wing-woman Victoria Ruan and I had a blast capturing this wedding.  It was held at 2941 Restaurant in Falls Church, VA.  The day started out sunny and bright with a light breeze.  We were able to get thru portraits until we had to move the party indoors.  But, you know what? It was great because S&J had a great rain plan.  Their day was flawless and we even got to admire an early summer rain from the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the waterfalls.

Shannon and Jonathan’s Wedding

DC area natives, S&J recently moved back into the area from Australia! Not only were they surrounded by family and childhood friends but I was really impressed that many of their Australian friends made the journey to celebrate with them!

What’s the furthest you’ve traveled to attend a wedding?

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…

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…
