You are going to love this wedding! This wedding began at the bride’s childhood home in Alexandria. Her mom’s paint color in the foyer matched the wedding colors. It’s almost like they planned it! As I walked through Sally’s parent’s home, it was easy to see that her classy, preppy and southern style stemmed from them. I loved how simple and elegant all of Sally’s details were! From the very beginning of the day I knew that this was going to be a gorgeous wedding!!
As I styled the details, one of Sally’s little flower girls kept me company and told me all about her role that day. It was so sweet to photograph bridal details while listening to a 6 year old girl’s view of a wedding! It’s so magical and special to her in so many ways! It gave me a fresh perspective at the beginning of the day and I loved that!! I loved so many parts of David and Sally’s wedding day. Their band was amazing, their ceremony was perfect, their portrait locations were wonderful and their venue… well you just wait until you see their VENUE! We love photographing at the Army Navy Club!!
One other part of their day that was so special was watching Sally read her card from David. Before she opened it she said she wasn’t going to cry, but after reading his sweet words to her, the tears started flowing. They are truly a beautiful couple with big hearts and so many FRIENDS! Their bridal party was HUGE!! We loved working with them and we can’t wait to show off their day!!!

32 Years. Over three decades. Can you image the impact? My dad accepted the call to our tiny little part of Virginia when I was just 18mos old.
Off season is here!! For wedding photographers, this is hopefully a time to rest and rejuvenate before busy season kicks back in. This is also a great time to focus on some back-end business tasks you might have had on your plate for a while now.
2021 was a year to remember! I decided to close out YouTube for the year, by reflecting back on life lessons 2021 taught me – what worked, what didn’t and what I hope to remember as I move into 2022.
You guys know talking about the tech side of a photography business is not my expertise… but thankfully it IS Tyler’s!!! I asked him to take over this YouTube video because I want to help you figure out which Mac is going to be the best one for you (even though I shouldn’t be the one to help you with that!!)!
It’s been years since I’ve done a round-up of some of my favorite images from the year! I struggle to narrow these down and so I decided to showcase some of the images with the best candid emotions!
Welcome back to another Behind the Image! In this series I take you behind the scenes of a real wedding day and then analyze one image! Today we’re analyzing an image from a wedding we shot back in May that should NOT have worked…but it did!!
