You guys, I am being 100% honest when I say this Stone Tower Winery wedding styled shoot was one of the most gorgeous shoots I’ve had the opportunity to photograph. I’ve never done just a bridal styled shoot before, but man was it fun. Jessica was a gorgeous bride and the incredible wedding vendors I […]
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 […]
Stone Tower Winery may be my current all time favorite wedding venue. Between the gorgeous vineyards, pond, reception hall, and wine cellar it’s hard to find a venue in the Leesburg and Loudoun County area that doesn’t offer more. Which is why I was so excited to participate in a Stone Tower Winery wedding styled […]
This is only the second time I’ve had the opportunity to photograph an elopement, and I’m starting to love them! Chris and Sheena got married at the Frederick Court House and managed to keep their wedding a complete secret until they day of. They tricked both of their moms into meeting them outside the courthouse […]

From […]
Ever since I was a kid, I remember driving by Strong Mansion on our way to Sugarloaf and dreaming about what it would be like to explore the grounds and mansion interior. When I got into wedding photography, I always hoped one day I would have the opportunity to capture Strong Mansion Wedding Pictures, and […]
Welcome brides and congratulations on your engagement! You’re likely here because you have begun the search for the “perfect” wedding venue which can be a daunting task to say the least. There’s so much to consider when looking for a wedding venue and after traveling and visiting one after another they can start to run […]
They say rain on your wedding day is good luck. But hurricanes? Not so much! As soon as I heard a potential hurricane was predicted for Taylar’s wedding, I called her up immediately and we discussed contingency plans for her Glen Ellen Farm wedding pictures in case the worst did happen. She was doing her […]
Brent and I feel so blessed to have been able to photograph Andrew & Kaitlin’s beautiful Mount St. Mary’s wedding day. We were a little nervous when we arrived at the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception and it was literally raining sideways, but thankfully the rain stopped by the time the wedding ceremony was over […]
