Randy and Kathryn’s late fall Pond View Farm Wedding was such a chilly day but the sun was out so it was a picture perfect wedding day! Their ceremony had a beautiful pond in the background and they married under and surrounded by weeping willow trees. Fun fact, weeping willows are my favorite tree. This […]

Pond View Farm Wedding

From the very first phone call I had with Hope, I felt like I made a friend. We immediately clicked and I was hoping that she and Brandon would book. Within one hour of our call she told me she wanted to move forward. I couldn’t wait to photograph her Rustic Brandy Hill Farm Fall […]

Rustic Brandy Hill Farm Fall Wedding

Gradually blogging through weddings from late 2019 during this quarantine and this winter 48 Fields Wedding was one of my favorites! Sarah and Chris are the most down to earth and fun couple. See their engagement session here. Their wedding day was a gorgeous December day with lots of sunshine and love. From the florals […]

Winter 48 Fields Wedding

Friends! I’m back at it! For the last few months, I took a break from blogging. I had been working on rebranding which included launching a brand new website! Part of me was hesitant to blog because I didn’t know how swapping platforms would affect my blogs. Didn’t want to have to do the same […]

Elegant Stone Tower Winery Wedding

Great Marsh Estate is, in my opinion, the most romantic wedding venue in Northern Virginia. When Adam and Lauren reached out and inquired about me photographing their wedding, I was beyond excited! I was finally going to photograph at my dream wedding venue. We photographed their engagement session in the fall of 2018 and stayed […]

Romantic Summer Great Marsh Estate Wedding

This Summer Woodlands at Algonkian Wedding was a first for me for two reasons. One – none of this wedding (ceremony or reception) were spoken in English and two – the days leading up to this wedding, all you heard on the news and radio was how hot it was going to be over the […]

Summer Woodlands at Algonkian Wedding

Can every wedding be outdoors with gorgeous floral arches, mountain views, and flowy blush dresses? Wedding trends will come and go but outdoor ceremonies will forever be my favorite! Rachel and Caden tied the knot on a Thursday for their summer wedding at Walden Hall. They were surrounded by their closest family and friends who […]

Rachel and Caden’s Summer Wedding at Walden Hall

Marriott Ranch 2 Day Wedding Celebration I always love when couples make their wedding their own and that’s exactly what Andrew and Vanessa did! They decided since most guests would be coming from out of town all the way from New York, why not make their wedding day a special 2 day wedding celebration!? Their […]

Marriott Ranch 2 Day Wedding Celebration

What a gorgeous weekend for a Memorial Day Ceresville Mansion Wedding! I might be a little biased since I got married Memorial Day weekend 6 years ago! Gordon and Leah tied the knot on Saturday at the Ceresville Mansion in Fredrick, Maryland. This was the first time I had visited this venue. From the photos, […]

Memorial Day Ceresville Mansion Wedding

Shannon and Lyndsey’s Spring Piedmont Club Wedding was a breezy 70 degree day. Lyndsey looked absolutely stunning walking down the aisle with her father as her long veil was blowing in the breeze. When she was close enough to Shannon, he wiped his tears and mouthed the words “you look absolutely beautiful.” Unfortunately, one of Shannon’s brothers […]

Spring Piedmont Club Wedding

Last year around this time, I remember seeing these absolutely incredible images from a Styled Shoot Across America (SSAA) Conference in Texas. The images got me thinking, I wonder if they will host another conference next year, 2019? I emailed the coordinator and she let me know they would be announcing the conference location in […]

Styled Shoot Across America Conference 2019

When I got married, almost 6 years ago, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my wedding, other than have it outdoors. I had no idea where to begin. Now being in the wedding industry for the past few years, I’ve seen some absolutely incredible wedding vendors work their magic and have […]

Vibrant Citrus Inspired Styled Shoot at Great Marsh Estate

Morgan and Ross said I do on a beautiful day in March at their Spring Riverview at Occoquan Wedding. Morgan and her girls began the day by getting ready in a super adorable AirBnB in Occoquan then took a quick 10 minute car ride over to the venue just in time for their first look. […]

Spring Riverview at Occoquan Wedding

Heidi and Danny’s Winter River View at Occoquan Wedding was filled with joy from beginning to the end. Witnessing and photographing these two love birds say “I do” was truly an honor. We were all so blessed with the most incredible weather for a January day. Not to mention the light we had was golden […]

Winter River View at Occoquan Wedding

My first wedding of 2019 was a little different than most and we all know I love different weddings! This particular wedding was a traditional Vietnamese engagement ceremony with American wedding elements added. I first met Kori and Nhan in the fall of 2018 and fell in love with them in the 15 minutes we […]
