Just before COVID really started affecting the country, I photographed a gorgeous Washington, DC Cherry Blossom engagement session at the iconic Jefferson Memorial and Tidal Basin. That was in early March (thank goodness for the warmer temperatures this winter, or we likely would’ve completely missed peak bloom with the shutdown) and I stopped photographing entirely […]

The blog has been full of micro weddings and elopements over the past few weeks and I have to be honest, I kind of love it! Before COVID/2020/the year to end all years, I had captured a handful of these intimate weddings across the Washington, DC area. And while micro weddings have been around well […]

I’m so excited to share a peek at Emily and Paul’s stunning elopement that took place at the Cathedral of St. Matthews and the DC War Memorial in Washington, DC.

It pretty much goes without saying at this point that 2020 is the year of elopements! As COVID quickly cancelled many of the large events planned for the year, so many couples opted to still move forward with saying their vows so that they could enjoy being married. In fact, I had three elopements within […]

Creating an album for a client, whether it’s right after the wedding or years later, is always such a joy. Kristina and Sean were married in January 2019 at St. Matthews Cathedral in Washington, DC with their reception at the Mayflower Hotel. They reached out to me earlier this year as they wanted to invest […]

In my opinion, nothing beats an outdoor wedding! Who doesn’t love to be outdoors where you can breathe fresh air, enjoy the natural light, and dance the night away under the stars!? And while they are absolutely stunning from a photography standpoint, they don’t come without a few roadblocks of their own. So if you’re […]

If there was ever such thing as an ALP Legacy Couple, Sarah and Kevin would certainly fit the bill perfectly! Earlier this July, we visited Old Town Alexandria to capture their second anniversary along with their sweet pup, Ruby.

A few weeks ago I met Denise and Neil in downtown Washington, DC at the reflecting pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial. These two opted for a traditional sunrise engagement session in the city, which was especially fitting since they share a quintessential DC love story. Denise and Neil met in their last few […]
