I'm so glad you're here! Browse the latest posts on photography education!
Emma & Ian’s DC engagement shoot was epic, and not just because I had a gorgeous, fun couple to photograph! I’ve taken DC engagement photos before and it’s always hard to fit in a number of locations because everything is so far apart. Thankfully, Emma’s parents, Lynn & Dan, (who happen to be good friends […]
Jennifer and Bobby met at a college Christmas party hosted by a mutual friend. Bobby pursued her, but after a bout with the flu and a lackluster first date looking at Christmas lights, Jennifer nearly moved on. Thankfully, Bobby convinced Jennifer to visit him for his New Years Eve party, where they really hit it […]
I’m kicking myself for not blogging these beautiful DC engagement photos sooner! In the chaos of fall wedding season, I occasionally get behind in blogging and just realized today that I never shared Travis and Lauren’s stunning Lincoln Memorial engagement shoot with you. The plan had been to meet at the Jefferson Memorial and spend […]
I hope everyone is staying safe, healthy, and sane! These past few days have been crazy and I’m so sad I will have to pause doing photo shoots until non-essential businesses are allowed to resume – especially with all the gorgeous spring blooms we’re experiencing right now! Still, I’m thankful that right now we’re healthy, […]
I so enjoyed getting to meet Amanda, Ryan, and their sweet dog Capitol during their gorgeous Harpers Ferry engagement shoot. The sun was shining but the air was pretty dang cold, yet Amanda still rocked a summer dress and looked absolutely stunning in it. (Don’t worry, we threw a coat on her every time we […]
Jen and Vinod are just the absolute sweetest of couples. They compliment each other so well, were so warm and welcoming to me, one of the most polite couples I’ve ever met, and despite their nerves were willing to completely trust themselves in my hands. For their engagement shoot, I met up with them at […]
Oh man, I am so excited to bring you this engagement shoot. There are some couples who are so totally and completely in love that they can’t help but constantly be cuddling, kissing, and wrapping up in each other’s arms. Which can perhaps be a bit annoying when you’re the friend who is always having […]
Leslie and Andrew actually went to boarding school together and then ended up getting back in touch a few years ago! How cute is that? These two live in Gettysburg and recently purchased the James Gettys Hotel which they’re in the process of renovating WHILE planning a wedding. I do not envy them haha. It […]
Kelsey and Logan’s love story is the definition of fate. Kelsey was working late from her car in the area where Logan was the resident courtesy police officer. When Logan responded to a call for an “unfamiliar/suspicious vehicle,” little did he know that in that “suspicious vehicle” would be his future wife! Kelsey rolled down […]
It’s no secret that I absolutely LOVE photographing around golden hour. Sometimes referred to as ‘magic hour’, golden hour is the period of time right before sunset when the light is warm, diffused, and just plain gorgeous. Realistically, the window of opportunity is more like 20 minutes or even less depending on the landscape and […]
