Fall Engagement Session: Chelsea & Aaron

I had a great time getting to know Chelsea and Aaron. I’ll be photographing their wedding in September 2018 at Meadowlark Gardens, but I hadn’t actually met them yet! They started researching photographers after I’d already moved to Indiana, but they still reached out, and I could tell right away that they were my kind of couple.

Their connection was instant, and they quickly started dating. […]

Spring Wedding at the Hotel Monaco: Alastair & Heather

Heather and Alastair were so laid-back and relaxed on their wedding day, despite unseasonably cold and rainy weather. We had originally planned to take advantage of all the scenery in Old Town and had a whole portrait route planned out. But the damp and chill kept our outside time very short. Despite changes in plans, Heather […]

Wedding at the Hotel Monaco: Caitlin & Ben

I absolutely loved every minute of this wedding. Caitlin and Ben have a love that is real and beautiful to behold. They impressed me so much when we captured their Cherry Blossom Engagement Session last spring, and I’ve been looking forward to their wedding ever since. I knew these two were absolute gems after they cheerfully met me at 6:00 AM […]

I’m thrilled to share these gorgeous senior portraits of Megan. To complement her classic sense of style, we held our session in Old Town Alexandria. As you can see, we had a lot of fun with the fall colors and the fallen leaves–not to mention Megan’s awesome hat.
