cask ales, frat houses, and lucky river horses.
michael mary + stephen are back on the blog! woo! last december we commemorated their engagement with a save-the-date mini-session and just a few weeks ago we got together again for a full engagement session – visiting churchkey (where stephen works + where they got engaged!) and the GW university campus where they fell in love. it was great seeing them again, catching up, and even chatting about stephen’s cousin ashley’s upcoming wedding (i love this family!!) – too much fun!
this was actually my first time on campus and GW was a fantastic place to shoot! we canvased the grounds, passing through the main square, stopping by stephen’s frat house, and of course visited the iconic river horse (hippo!) for some fun photos with the lucky mascot. michael mary + stephen — you are a delight, and your love truly shines — i hope to photograph you many more times!
sunshine of your love.
krystin + gill are getting married! (…in two weeks – woo!)
i absolutely *love* this couple and i am thrilled to be able to capture their energy + love! their engagement session in dc was so much fun – the late afternoon light was unreal and krystin + gill are undeniably radiant. from the streets of dupont to the rooftops overlooking the city, their love simply shone. i am so excited and honored to be documenting their wedding this month and can’t wait to see them again!
cheers to krystin + gill!
a dc love story.
things michael mary + stephen love: living in dc, the jefferson memorial, cairn terriers, and each other.
still reeling from their recent engagement (just a few weeks ago!) this lovely young couple simply oozed love during our session! they were all smiles + laughter, sneaking the cutest glances at each other the entire time. they both hail from nearby hometowns in new jersey, but it wasn’t until moving to dc for school that they actually met…how crazy is that? some things are definitely meant to be :)
i was really excited to meet michael mary + stephen – this was just a mini-session to celebrate their engagement + shoot save-the-dates + holiday cards, and they are planning to do another session in the spring! so fun! and since i think it’s great when people include their beloved pets, i loved that they brought their adorable puppy sam along with them for a few photographs! so cute!
jen + wayne are engaged!
last thursday was the most gorgeous fall day, absolutely perfect for a photo session! we started in their neighborhood near the national cathedral and made our way down to georgetown to the bustling action of m street as well as the serenity of the canals. jen + wayne are sweet, funny, smart, and totally in love – i really enjoyed spending the afternoon with them and watching them interact with each other. they were up for anything and took me to some of their favorite spots for super cute photos. they have great energy and i *loved* watching them dance and jump around in the alleys, their shadows bouncing around behind them…so fun!
rachel + scott = perfect.
rachel + scott are engaged! i was so excited to meet this happy young couple in their neighborhood and visit all their favorite places for their engagement session a few weeks ago. we started by strolling up and down main street in del ray, sampling custard at the dairy godmother, and doing a little shopping + shooting at cheesetique – two fabulous places that i can’t wait to visit again!
we stopped by their adorable house for a few shots in their lush yard and on the front porch (check out the fab red door!) next, we took a walk along the waterfront in old town alexandria before heading into dc for some night shots around dupont circle. it was such a great session – i loved the diversity of the locations and rachel + scott are a delightful couple. they are smart, ambitious, and totally in love – my favorite kind of people!
sunrise session in georgetown.
angeli + thong are getting married!
i was delighted to meet this fun (not to mention absolutely adorable!) couple in georgetown for an early morning engagement session. i love shooting first thing in the morning, it’s the perfect way to start the day and the light is stellar. it was a particularly gorgeous morning and we had the streets of georgetown all to ourselves. pre-traffic and pre-crowds, we freely explored the canal, the alleyways, and of course the georgetown campus – go hoyas! thong graduated just days after our session and the campus was already preparing for the commencement – so exciting! this was only my second time on campus and it really is stunning – the architecture combined with the serenity of the grounds that early in the morning was amazing. we made our way slowly back to m street where the morning bustle was underway, stopping briefly to check out the great archways and doorways of the neighborhood.
i’m super excited for this couple – they are a perfect match and i know they will have a wonderful life together!
congrats to angeli + thong! i wish you all the best!
lovin’ it up in logan circle.
oh how i *love* kathleen + jerry!
they are engaged to be married this saturday at DAR and i cannot wait to photograph their day! we finally managed a rain-free hour on saturday to shoot their engagement session in logan circle – my favorite neighborhood (and theirs!) since they spent a ton of time there when they were dating. not only is logan such a colorful and rich area to begin with, but i didn’t realize how many black + red backgrounds would perfectly compliment their sassy attire! we had a blast walking through the neighborhood, wandering through the alleys and commandeering the sidewalk to get some amazing shots.
kathleen + jerry have such good energy – i really dig being around them. plus they are super stylish, ridiculously good looking, and have a fabulous propensity for easy laughter and genuine smiles. oh, and they are having duff from charm city cakes create an iphone wedding cake – what could be cooler than that?
