River Farm Wedding // an intimate gathering

Looking back over the past few months of weddings I remember small little moments of each one that stand out and make each day individual and different. Both big and small, elaborate and simple. Each day holds their own special moments that set them apart. Back in the beginning of the Summer I documented Leslie and Greg’s wedding day.  It was an intimate gathering but there was no shortage of details. They had put the wedding day festivities together in just 1 month, and if I didn’t tell you that I bet you wouldn’t have ever guessed. A pair of wanderlusts Leslie and Greg had their Volkswagen Van decorated for the occasion and a replica in cookie and cake topper form which really tied everything together. The love the two of them have for each other radiated thru every moment of the day and it was pure joy to photograph.

Here are some highlights…

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…

NOVA Wedding // A Beautiful Blended Family

The Summer has flown by and now the days are getting shorter, I’m not sure where the time has gone.  I’ve been dying to share this June Wedding!   I was trying to think of a good name for this wedding.  The Ceremony was in Alexandria, Portraits in Old Town, and the Reception in Woodbridge at Old Hickory   So, NOVA Wedding made the most sense! This couple entered their marriage each with a young son.  Just a year apart in age these boys, already friends are now instant brothers! The day was as much about their mom and dad as it was about them.  It was really beautiful to see the boys included in the wedding day in such a special way. The older of the two boys walked his Mom down the isle and gave a toast at the reception. The younger was his Dad’s Best Man! This is a perfect example of a modern blended family! Here is a recap of the day…

        

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.

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?

Wedding at Mount Vernon Farm // Sneak Peek!

This past weekend I had the honor to document this wedding. Do they look familiar to you? I posted their engagement session back in June.  This incredible couple wed in Sperryville, VA at the Inn at Mount Vernon Farm.  This unique venue boasts a spectacular view of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which the ceremony overlooked.  Guests then traveled down the hill where the cocktail hour and reception were held in a barn of historic proportions.  This barn was formally the largest of it’s kind east of the Mississippi! Merriment was had by all… I wish I could show more photos right now, but this sneak peek will have to do for now…

Fall Family Portraits// Old Town Alexandria

Happy Friday!   This week I have been taking a look back at the Fall.  It was a very busy time of year.  It seems so long ago!  Right before Thanksgiving I shot a family portrait session in Old Town Alexandria, VA.  I love this place.  We met up when the lighting was perfect and made a few stops around town.  Here is what I walked away with…

Spring is just around the corner! I am looking forward to flowers blooming and trees being green again.  Do you have the winter blues?

Have a great weekend!

ENP a year in review for 2014!

WOW 2014 was spectacular! This past year I had the privilege to work on 152 photoshoots. Ranging from engagements, weddings, babies, parties, corporate events, political lobby days, cycling, trade shows, high end productions, television production, a magazine cover, product shoots, architectural, and portraits.  I worked as a photographer, stylist, production assistant, lighting technician, and in one case a makeup artist.

In 2014 I not only grew my business but I also took on the role as Director of the DC Chapter of American Photographic Artists. In the spring I launched a new line of custom photo products, which are available to all of my clients.  In the gallery scene, I won best in show at the DC Exposed 2014 show at LongView Gallery in March.  In the month of September my photo collective, SliverCore Photographers had a group show at Gallery 1301 in Baltimore .  Then, I ended the year strong with my Hyattsville Project up on the walls at Green Owl Design.

I could’t be more grateful for the opportunity to participate in all of these things and to be able to live my dream each and every day! Thank you for all of you that make it possible for me.

Here are some photo highlights of my year…
