Last year before COVID seemed to be a thing, everyone was booked for the most popular wedding date of 2020 which was 10/10/2020. It seemed to have booked 2 years in advance because of its really neat date. In early 2020, Scott and Ashley reached out. We chatted over the phone and hit it off. […]

Most Popular Wedding Date of 2020 Marriott Ranch Wedding

Thinking back to March when my 1st wedding of the year was supposed to be a 3 day celebration and the week prior to the wedding my couple was forced to postpone due to restrictions. I remember how much this news stung for me, the wedding industry, and of course my couple. I cried a […]

2020 Behind the Scenes

With everything 2020 brought, postponed weddings were one of them. Joe and Reshmi had already been planning their wedding for 2 years when COVID shutdown the US in March. They made the incredibly difficult decision one week prior to their Osprey’s Woodbridge Virginia Wedding date to postpone until November. In the blink of an eye, […]

Summer COVID Rose Hill Manor Wedding

Last year, I had all intentions of blogging this gorgeous wedding. I was waiting to blog and post Caitlin and Steven’s Fall RiverView at Occoquan wedding because it was so gorgeous I wanted it to be my last blog of the 2019. Then life with an infant was a much harder at that time than […]

Fall RiverView at Occoquan Wedding

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 […]

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 […]

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

With so much focus on the bride for her wedding day, the groom is often left with a time and place to show up. He may or may not know what to bring or he may think he has packed everything but has forgotten something. Earlier this year, I was photographing bride and groom details […]

Wedding Day Check List for Grooms

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 […]

Congratulations! You’re engaged! Once brides get engaged and the wedding planning begins, the venue and date are typically the first two things they check off their list. Venues book fast so your wedding date will probably be determined by the availability of your dream venue. With so many things happening at once, you may forget […]

10 Things You Need To Know Before Booking Your Wedding Venue

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 […]
