You guys, I am one lucky photographer! I get to take photos for Naina and Josh not once, not twice, but three times in just over a year. Yay! You may remember Naina and Josh from their proposal/engagement at the Inn at Perry Cabin in April, but today you will remember them from their Congressional […]

Oh my gosh, you guys, we had the best weather this weekend here in the D.C. area! I felt like I was in California! The temperatures were great and there was like zero humidity. I was in heaven! I tried to spend as much time outdoors as I could between working and resting – it […]

The Greater Madison Chamber of […]
