Maymont Park

  • Brittany's Bridals

session definitely deserves the “fairytale” title. I arrived at Maymont to photograph Brittany’s bridal portraits without ever meeting Brittany beforehand. As soon as I walked through the door of that little bridal room, I knew it was going to be a phenomenal day of shooting!! She was stunning and radiant and so full of life! Brittany’s joy is contagious and she’s one of those people that you feel happier after you leave her presence and I love that about her! Not only does Brittany have a radiant personality but she’s incredibly photogenic!! Photographer’s dream!! I absolutely loved my time with her back in the spring and it’s been hard to keep these a secret!

A Rock Creek DC Engagement

  • Cliff + Laurie | Engaged

met on the Metro. She was reading a business book that he recognized and so Cliff started a conversation that day with the woman he was destined to spend the rest of his life with! Cliff and Laurie live outside of the heart of DC in an area called Mount Pleasant. That name couldn’t be more accurate. After driving through the craziness of the city, it was so refreshing to come to this quaint neighborhood full of adorable row houses and a large park. Cliff and Laurie met me at the park near their home last Wednesday and we got to know one another as I shot their engagement session.

A Mini Posing Workshop

  • Workshop : Vegas Edition

going to think I’ve totally lost it when you see what I’m posting today! I’m blogging my mini Posing workshop from WPPI…. you know, the trip that we took back in MARCH! Yes, I’m finally blogging these images! If you know me and follow my blog, you know that I don’t normally have a problem with getting images posted quickly. I’m a consistent blogger and I keep up with my edits well. This is definitely an exception! I guess moving and packing and building a house really threw me off early this spring! While we were in Vegas attending WPPI, I hosted a mini Workshop Experience. It was only two hours of posing instructions but it was a TON of fun!
