We hope you grab some coffee (or a diet coke, in my case) and enjoy viewing our latest work, browsing resources for photographers, and getting a little peek into our life!  Read more...

A Church Hill Engagement Shoot

  • Darrell + Meredith | Engaged

is a sick day. I have a cold and while it’s no fun, I’m SO thankful that it’s happening now and not on a wedding day!! It’s actually the perfect day to have a cold because I’m spending all day in my office editing, emailing and filing paperwork! Doesn’t that sound like so much FUN?! To most people, the answer to that question would be “No”. However, it’s fun for me because I get excited about sharing new images of new couples on the blog!! Darrell and Meredith will be getting married this spring… Like, REALLY soon! So you’ll have a change to see them again in a few weeks.

St. Catherine's Senior Shoot

  • Meet Tori

days when I wish I could offer portraits again! I only offer portraits to friends and family because our time is so dominated by our weddings. We LOVE our wedding clients and that is definitely where our heart is but I do LOVE shooting senior portraits for our kids from church! It’s just FUN! I love my time with them and it’s especially fun to photograph the girls! I mean really, what teenage girl doesn’t love modeling for 2 hours?! Tori and her mom walked the campus of St. Catherines School last week and had a blast!

Washington DC Wedding Photographer

  • Mike + Kelly | Engaged

days it can be 50 degrees and it feels like 65! Other days, it can be 50 degrees and feel like 30!! Well, last Wednesday it was in the 50’s but it was FREEZING! The sun was shining but the wind was roaring through DC during my eshoot with Mike and Kelly! They were such great sports about the temperature and the never ending wind that kept blowing hair in their faces. That’s how you know you are working with GREAT couples. If they can make it work in less than ideal conditions, then I have struck gold in the client department! I had been waiting to meet Mike and Kelly for a while now. They are getting married this coming fall
