Fall Wedding in Northern Virginia at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens

    I’ve been looking forward to this wedding for such a long time! Chelsea and Aaron found my work last summer, shortly after I’d left DC for Indianapolis, but they really resonated with my message of capturing beautiful relationships and choosing timeless over trendy photography.

Wedding in Falls Church: Kristen & Dan

This wedding was a dream to photograph. In addition to being lovely, and highly emotive, Kristen was the most organized bride I’ve ever met. This is the only wedding I’ve ever shot (or heard of) where all the portraits ran thirty minutes ahead of schedule. As a photographer, this made my heart sing because it meant […]

McLean, Virginia Wedding: Micah & Katie

I officially love November weddings. They have all the glamor of wintry trees and cool colors without the freezing temperatures that make outdoor photos a challenge. And when you have a couple adorable romantics like Katie and Micah, you are in for some beautiful pictures! Micah and Katie were married at the church where they met, so we were […]

Rustic Barn Wedding: Abby & Russ

Abby and Russ are absolute sweethearts with a playful, vintage sense of style and oodles of DIY talent. Their rustic 50’s chic wedding at WeatherLee Farm and Vineyard was a perfect fit. I loved Abby’s vintage tea-length gown and hand-stitched hairpiece. Despite being the mastermind behind this beautiful day, she was relaxed and happy as […]
