If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that I LOVE to bake! In fact, I actually got my start practicing photography on all the treats I would put together in the kitchen and would regularly blog them before I had enough sessions to fill my schedule! But being a Washington, DC […]

I met Kristen and Brooks in downtown Washington, DC at the iconic monuments for a beautiful sunrise engagement session. The previous evening’s forecast mentioned the threat of possible thunderstorms that morning, but we were greeted with a cool, dry morning. As DC was prepping for Fourth of July celebrations in the days ahead, we avoided […]

A few years ago, I restructured my investment guide so that the majority of my clients would receive an heirloom wedding album within their Collection. Personally, I think there is just something so lovely about the idea of knowing my clients are taking home a piece of their wedding day after all is said and […]

Morgan and Fran met, these days, in the unlikeliest, of situations… in person! With so many couples meeting online, I find it’s becoming increasingly more rare to hear about couples who spoke for the first time face to face! Not to mention, they both said it was completely out of character for them; luckily fate […]

Back in March, I photographed a cherry blossom engagement session in Washington, DC at the Tidal Basin just before everything shut down due to concerns over Coronavirus. And for the past three plus months, we’ve pretty much been quarantining ever since — rarely going out except to visit the grocery store and for the occasional […]

Rob and I just celebrated NINE years of marriage! Yes, you read that right – we were married almost a decade ago, before the dawn of Pinterest!, at Potomac Point Winery amongst our closest friends and family. We still cherish that day as one of the best of our lives and have our images hanging […]

I’ve previously shared a Bridal Business post about wedding day exit options… If you’ve had a chance to read it, it’s clearly no secret that I personally love daytime exits.  I think they allow for more variety and, of course, ensure beautiful light for your images. I’ve even had clients opt to do an entrance […]

Valeria and John e-mailed me earlier this winter about the possibility of doing their engagement session during the peak bloom of the cherry blossoms along the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC. I had already booked one session, and limit myself to no more than two per year (as scheduling around peak bloom could be a […]

Washington, DC Cherry Blossom Engagement Session

We were hoping to capture Valeria & John's engagement session during peak bloom, but it was worth it to squeeze their session in before all the craziness picked up over the past week! Luckily we were still able to capture a bit of that iconic beauty from some early blossoms! See it all over on the blog! #linkinprofile
