Karin & Scott - Married!

In August I got to meet up with Karin & Scott again for their intimate wedding in Newport News. Love these two!

















Sweet baby boy!

You may remember the maternity photos that I did for my friend a while back. Well here is her sweet boy! :) 

My 2013 with Kristen Gardner!

So you may have noticed the silence here on the blog throughout the year. I will just come out and say it… with the birth of my daughter in February, I took most of the year off. I wanted to keep myself sharp though so I filled my free days with portrait sessions and second shooting weddings with friends.

Today I would like to highlight the weddings I shot with the amazing Kristen Gardner! I love love love second shooting with her, we always have a blast. 

We kicked it off in April with Erin & David (click link to see Kristen’s amazing photos).

Then I joined her again in July for Shannon & Jason’s wedding.

Then I ended my year with her shooting Stacey & Vince.

Thanks for having me along Kristen!

Karin & Scott - Engaged!

Karin found me through my favorite place on the internet: A Practical Wedding! We hooked up over Google Hangout while I was still on maternity leave and I think we all knew it was just meant to be. She lives a few hours south of me and he lives in Colorado so it’s really amazing that we were able to pull off this engagement session last weekend. We met up in Old Towne Petersburg, VA. There are some really amazing spots down there. I really wish it was closer.

A good time was had by all!


 I love that they don’t take themselves too seriously. ;)

 Can’t wait for the wedding in August! 

Trisha - Maternity

Trisha is a friend of mine who I met through the local moms group. Her sweet little family is growing by one baby boy! I love that I was able to capture these images for them.


Happy May! Teasers!

Just a little of what I have been up to!


The above image is sweet Lulu on the left who is bethrothed to my son on the right. Can you imagine how cute our grandkids are going to be? ;)

Puja - Maternity

First comes love…


Then comes marriage…

 You know what is coming next right?

I love when I get to see my couples again and again. Puja & Saj are no longer just my clients, they are friends and I just adore them. I was overjoyed when they contacted me about shooting some maternity and newborn photos for them. 

During our shoot, Puja reminded me that exactly 4 years ago over the same weekend we shot their engagement photos. Man, time totally flies! I really feel like it was yesterday. 

Enjoy. :)

Louanna & Kaven - Married!

When I was in Miami for Taryn & Liam’s wedding I also had the pleasure of shooting Louanna & Kaven’s wedding. Louanna is Liam’s sister so it was super cool to spend two days with their family. 


 Love happy accidents like this where someone else’s flash went off at the exact same moment as my shutter. So fun!

 I had a really nice time over that weekend in Florida! 

Taryn & Liam are married!

One month ago today I was in Miami shooting this awesome wedding! I love these two, you might remember them from their stunning DC cherry blossom engagement session.

We started out with their first look & bridal party portraits at their reception venue since we knew it would be dark by the time we got back from the ceremony. I am so glad we did this first!

 Then we headed to the ceremony!

 They rented a school bus to transport us around and I thought it was such a great idea (and a ton of fun).

The decor was almost totally handmade by Taryn herself… INCLUDING THE CAKE!!! She is a machine, someone needs to convince her to open a wedding related business of some sort. Oh and did I mention she did all of this planning and most of the crafting from DC?!

 Ahhh so much fun. Love you guys! 


Florida Trip!

I recently spent a weekend in Florida. I got to photograph these two awesome couples on their wedding days.


More soon!
