The Friday Few

  • A Thank You!

I was supposed to blog something else today. My blog calendar is jam packed right now with upcoming weddings and engagement sessions. This week was a BUSY one for the blog. I blogged a wedding AND two couples sessions! If you haven’t seen those… you’re going to want to! They are two of my favorite shoots of 2015 so far!! But then again, you probably have seen them already because you are the dedicated ones… the die hards… the most loyal fans we have! You’re the FRIDAY FEW! You’re the friends that check the blog on the slowest internet day of the entire WEEK!

Greg + Keri | Engaged

  • Old Town Alexandria Engagement Pictures

I feel like it would be accurate to name this the “blossom” shoot! There were so many opportunities to shoot underneath blooming trees and shrubbery during Greg and Keri’s engagement session! Every year I hope for a chance to shoot in the blossoms and I thought that my opportunity had passed. The peak of the cherry blossoms was over a week ago and so I assumed that all of the blooms were gone. I was very wrong! Old Town Alexandria was still full of flowers and it made for a perfect backdrop for Greg and Keri!

My Must-Have Camera Bag

  • Ask Anything

This is something that every photographer has to have… a camera bag. Everyone has their own individual needs and preferences but sometimes it helps to hear a review from someone else to help in your search for the perfect bag! My search started years ago and I actually found a bag that worked GREAT but I was so hard on it that the fabric wore out and the strap broke after year two.
