Sarah and Alex are two of the most caring people I’ve ever met! After their engagement shoot I couldn’t wait to get to July! At their wedding I learned how special they are to all of their friends and family and to each other. Their wedding reflected their passion for all living things and the environment. Khimaira Farm was the perfect setting for them. The whole event was laid back and stress free and and we got so many beautiful images! Some of my favorite highlights include a massive spread of baked goods, the groomsmen’s awesome boutonnieres, and getting to use a beautiful vintage couch for some portraits! Thank you to Kuralay Nuramnova of 1001 Angles Photography for second shooting for me!
I am so excited to share today’s engagement shoot! This was our second attempt at this, our first was rained out; but I think it couldn’t have gone better! Erin and Terry were so enthusiastic about taking photos and they were very invested in finding a beautiful location and I think they succeeded big time! Brookeside Gardens was absolutely gorgeous and nothing short of a photographer’s playground. I loved working with these two and I can’t wait until their beautiful wedding this October at one of my favorite venues: Irvine Estate!
I loved working with Ashlee and Will! Ashlee is another friend from college, and I was so honored she picked me to shoot her wedding even though my work was not nearly as good back in the college days! They were both so easy to work with and I loved their venue! They were married outside at Linganore Winecellars with a backdrop of a gorgeous vineyard. The reception was held in their gorgeous facility that looks like an old barn on the outside! One thing I really loved about this couple was how strongly they valued their family. You could clearly tell that family is very important to these two, and I loved being able to capture that in their images. Thank you for a beautiful wedding day, Ashlee & Will!
I love working with couples like Sarah and Alex. They were were so excited to finally be getting their photos together and were so much fun to work with! Sarah told me she often took photos but always forgot to snap shots together. We traipsed around Blandy Farms gorgeous greenery and got some truly awesome shots! The lighting was perfect the entire time, and we had a great time sharing stories about our love of hiking and the outdoors. We even hopped over and snapped a few quick shots at Sky Meadows before we got kicked out as the sun set! This shoot only made me more excited for their wedding next month at one of my favorite venues: Khimaira Farm! Can’t wait!
I had an amazing time at Megan and Alex’s traditional Chinese wedding! We started off the day with traditional Chinese wedding games, followed by the tea pouring. I really loved capturing how important all these rituals were to this family. Afterwards they had some gorgeous first look portraits and a beautiful ceremony. Then after the ceremony the sky opened up and it stormed on us for over an hour while we were supposed to be taking portraits!! Luckily, the rain only lasted a short time, and we were able to find a back up location and I was so relieved to snap some amazing wedding party photos! Finally we went into the reception where a 12 course meal was served! Amazing! Megan and Alex were almost completely occupied the entire time receiving well-wishes and gifts from their friends and family. I loved hearing and seeing how special this couple is to their family, and was so happy to capture it all for them :). Thank you so much to Kurulay of 1001 Angles Photography for second shooting.
I’m really excited to share this DC engagement shoot! As soon as I started shooting Melinda and Kevin I could tell they were 100% comfortable being themselves in front of the camera, and it’s clear that these are happy people who laugh a lot! They were a joy to photograph.
I especially liked these two’s neighborhood, Kalomara Heights in Northwest DC. I loved the beautiful architecture and greenery and flowers coming out for the spring! We then walked over to Meridian Hill Park and also snapped some shots in front of an amazing mural! Check it out in the images below!
