    Congratulations to Megan and Luis!  In case you missed their lovely Engagement Session taken at the Virginia Arboretum, you can find it here!

    These two met on the popular dating app, Bumble.  Megan said that Luis was very persistent!  At first he thought she was playing hard to get, but in reality she was really busy…

  • The Barn at Willow Brook | Fall Wedding

    Congratulations to Carrie and Tom!  They were married on a beautiful Fall day in October of 2019. You may remember their Harpers Ferry, West Virginia Engagement Session from earlier this year.  But let me back up a little bit!  These two met on the dating app “Coffee meets Bagel”!  Carrie made the first move when…

  • Bluemont Vineyard | Occoquan Regional Park | Engagement

    Congratulations to Melinda and Daniel on your Engagement!

    We started their Engagement Session at Bluemont Vineyards on a beautiful Summer day.  We met and were about 40 minutes into our session when the skies turned dark and threatening.  So we had to cut the session short, which I felt badly about, but no one wants to…

  • Amissville, Virginia | Wedding in the Countryside

    Congratulations to Morgan and David on their beautiful Virginia Countryside wedding!

    You may remember their 2 part Engagement Session from a couple months ago.  The first half got rained out by a torrential downpour.  My Weather App totally failed me on this day.  About 25 minutes into our shoot, we were running to our cars.  They…

  • The Virginia Arboretum | Spring Engagement

    I’ve never met a couple that could break into laughter as easily.  Megan and Luis were an absolute joy to get to know during their Engagement Session at the Virginia Arboretum, a.k.a. The Blandy Experimental Farm.   We met up there on a particularly beautiful June day.  The sunshine beamed through the trees and created some…

  • Amissville, Virginia | Countryside Engagement

    Congratulations to Morgan and David on their Engagement!

    I had the pleasure of meeting Morgan when we worked together on a previous wedding.  She was the venue coordinator and was so helpful behind-the-scenes.  When she contacted me about possibly shooting her own wedding, I felt so honored.  Because she’s seen me at my possibly “not-so-professional” moments. …
