Stephanie & Joe’s day at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club was one to remember for years to come. They had waited so long and faced so many obstacles this year to make their wedding day happen! I was truly blessed to be by their families & guests sides to watch them tie the knot on the bayside!
This will hands down be my favorite shoot of 2020 and probably my favorite proposal ever because I’m biased and that girl down there is my BEST friend! We’ve known each other since before I was even two years old and to say we grew up together and that her family is like my family would be an understatement!
I am so incredibly fortunate to have a lot of friends turned clients for my 2020 wedding season! It’s so sweet to be able to walk alongside my friends through their engagement process, walk them through the photography experience and be there step by step with them on their wedding day, celebrating & capturing the […]
So you’ve decided to have your pictures taken which is kind of a big deal because I mean how often do we all really have our pictures taken?! One of the first things your mind probably goes to is “Oh gosh what do I even wear?” If you’re anything like me, a million questions run […]
Semir & Manal’s Washington D.C. Engagement Session I absolutely love getting to meet my couples and hear about them and what they’re most excited about for their wedding day! I also always appreciate when couples are able to convey what they value most on their wedding day and I loved Semir & Manal’s emphasis on […]
We had the most beautiful fall day out and spent the time sipping on some wine, taking a TON of cute pictures (these two are so much fun together) and I loved getting to know Steph and Joe a little bit better! Stephanie actually found me through one of her friends who works at Stone Tower so it was fun meeting for the first time in person at the very place that brought us together in the first place!
Lalaine & Jasheem are two super sweet people and I had so much fun at their Meadowlark Gardens engagement session and now I’m so excited and honored to be capturing their wedding in Maryland next year!
Alex & Carter took their engagement session photos this past week at the Netherlands Carillon in Arlington! I always encourage my couples to choose a location that’s meaningful to my couples and so they chose where they got engaged 🙂
I absolutely LOVE proposals and getting to photograph a Stone Tower Winery proposal was incredible!! Aarti’s twin sister, Archana, found me through Instagram and reached out to me at the end of last week with something super fun! Her twin sister was going to get proposed to at Stone Tower Winery on Memorial Day!!
Anish & Surabhi’s engagement party was a chance for all their friends and family to come together to celebrate at the Cascades Overlook Center in Sterling! It’s always such an honor when you get to photograph a couple multiple times from the proposal, to their engagement session at Stone Tower Winery (one of my favorites!) and their engagement party this past weekend!
