Kayla & Connor’s Intimate Ashland Virginia Wedding

Watching a friend get married is SO special and I say that after a year worth of weddings where I do happen to closely know at least one of the two getting married!

Old Town Alexandria Styled Shoot Turned Proposal

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!

Manavi & Quan’s King Family Wedding Engagement Session

I may have done a little happy dance when Manavi’s email landed in my inbox! I saw her get engaged to Quan and was SO so happy when she reached out about wedding photography for their June Poplar Springs Manor wedding next year! They’ll be having a bit of a fusion wedding but have a Baraat through the poplars for them to see each other!!

Abhi & Anuj – Intimate Indian Wedding Elopement Portraits

I photographed Abhi & Anuj’s wedding day pictures last week! It was a CRAZY turnaround time because Abhi reached out on Monday and we photographed their pictures after their ceremony on Thursday!! That’s LESS than a week!! It turned out beautifully though! Initially, we were going to take images at the Hindu Temple in Sterling but after seeing the rain in the forecast, we decided to move the pictures a little later in the day and decided to take them in their backyard in Ashburn.

My Favorite Charlottesville Vineyards & Wineries

As spring rolls around and the weather warms up, I’m dreaming of getting back out to the beautiful Charlottesville vineyards! This is something that I’m really looking forward to post-quarantine and I think it’d be a GREAT way to celebrate being able to get back out and about whenever we are able to safely do so!

Intimate Spring Reston Wedding at the Lakehouse

I’ve known Chloe since she was in high school so to watch her marry her best friend, John, at their Reston wedding at the Lakehouse just down the street from where we went to high school was surreal! It was SUCH an honor to be chosen to capture their beautiful lavender spring wedding day!

Ashburn Virginia Wedding – Margaret & Brian’s Leap Day Wedding

Every so often you have a wedding day that you know BEFORE is going to be incredibly emotional & heartfelt. Margaret & Brian were officially married on November 24th during Thanksgiving Week and had a small intimate wedding in their home so that Margaret’s dad would be able to witness his daughter’s marriage before he passed away. They pulled the ENTIRE thing together in about 5 hours so that her dad would be able to be awake and witness it before he passed.

John Marshall Ballroom Richmond Virginia Wedding

Ending the 2019 season was bittersweet but I am so grateful that I got to do so celebrating alongside Mary & Rory for their John Marshall Ballroom wedding! They had the most beautiful winter wedding with emerald green and dashes of silver sprinkled throughout.
