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 […]
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 🙂
We took Danielle & Connor’s BEAUTIFUL engagement session images at the Belle Grove Plantation in King George, VA! They’ll be getting married this upcoming April at the Woman’s Club of Portsmouth near Danielle’s hometown.
Getting to explore a new city is always fun for me but getting to explore Fredericksburg with Mary & Rory was such a treat! Rory grew up in the area and could point out little spots around the city that I wouldn’t have known on my own! I met Mary over video chat a couple […]

I met these two at Starbucks and noticed just how easy-going they were from the very first couple of minutes I started talking to them! The both of them have little kiddos […]
Christine & Kenneth chose to have their engagement session at the Wharf since they had one of their first dates there! I love when couples choose a location that ties into their story. Their first date had involved ice cream (her love language she jokes) and lasted over 3 hours long!
Madhu & Colin planned to have their engagement session in Meadowlark Gardens out in Vienna just as it started to bloom and come back to life with spring blooms! I’ve been here a handful of times but I love seeing how it seems different each time I’m here depending on what’s springing up.
We got to spend more time together this week taking their engagement portraits at Stone Tower Winery! Stone Tower is one of my absolute favorites and I love how all my sessions there tend to be more laid back and feels like I’m taking photos of friends over wine.
