It’s always a beautiful thing to watch someone you’ve known for years become a parent. The transformation is immediate and complete, and as a non-parent (to human children – Milli counts as my furbaby! haha), it’s so interesting to witness. Such was the case with getting to see Maddy as a new mother to baby […]

Happy Monday loves! It’s a dreary Monday here in the D.C. metro area, so I’ll try to keep this Fun Monday update nice & cheery! A little literary sunshine, if you will 🙂 I had a busy, productive weekend & frankly could use a little rest on this Monday, but I’m powering through! Let’s go! […]

After my trip to the Dominican Republic with Dance Adventures, I’ve been rethinking how I consider myself a not very adventurous person. The day I went jungle zip lining made me rethink exactly who I think I am! I came to realize after a couple minor adventures throughout the week that experiencing something physically & […]

Today I’m making the case for unplugged wedding ceremonies. True, having cell phone cameras or iPads in the frame of any photograph is a pet peeve of pretty much every wedding photographer. But the case I’ll make today is about so much more than that. You’ve set aside a certain amount of money to fund […]

I remember hearing about Nicole, Ryan’s new girlfriend, from our friend Lauren a few years ago. Ryan sent Lauren a text the evening we were all having happy hour together at our favorite neighborhood spot. The text went something like, “Nicole is getting there before me. Be nice to her.” Haha! Lauren is the friendliest […]

Happy Easter Monday y’all! (Is that even a thing?) Well, it’s the Monday after Easter Sunday & whew! did I have a busy weekend! I’d love to hear about your Easter Sunday in the comments! Tell me: how many Peeps did you eat? What did the Easter Bunny bring you? How was the weather where […]

Last week I told you the day we went to El Limon waterfall was my favorite day of our trip to the Dominican Republic with Dance Adventures. I showed you photos from our drive through Samana & our trek through the jungle on hourseback to the waterfall. Well, our day didn’t end after our delicious […]

If you love natural light photography, trust me: you need to plan your wedding around magic hour. That appears to be a pretty bold, self-serving statement. I’m suggesting you plan your entire wedding, one of the most important events of your life, around one thing. The thing I happen to be most passionate about – […]

I’m excited to share with you these National Mall engagement photos! When I met Kandis & her now fiance, Daniel, they weren’t yet engaged. But I actually thought they were already married! That is how in sync and tight their connection is. They give off a vibe of unity, of closeness and security. So I was […]

My weekend definitely had an air of love about it. I had the honor of photographing three gorgeous couples, from Alexandria to the Mall in D.C. The weather was perfect for spending so much time outside, which I definitely enjoyed after being home sick for almost two weeks! I’d say this weekend was actually the […]
