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 small and big moments of the day!

Chloe & John’s spring wedding day in our hometown of Reston, Virginia is going to be sweet, intimate and fun! Chloe’s put together a beautiful lavender toned spring floral palette, John and his best buddies are going to have an absolute blast and watching these two together during their engagement session made me SO excited for their wedding day portraits!! They have that kind of love that everyone hopes to have one day! They’re so effortless with each other, love to tease each other and are of course, HUGE OSU fans!!

They met at Ohio State and are both going into the legal field (with Chloe JUST being accepted into her dream law school!!) so it was only fitting that we took pictures in front of the Supreme Court in DC! Until their March wedding day, enjoy their beautiful and fun filled engagement session in DC! We lucked out with the most beautiful and surprisingly warm winter day the week of Christmas while they were home for the holidays. I’m SO glad we were able to squeeze in their engagement session during such a crazy time of year, it was most definitely worth it!!
