A Lot of Happy: A Peek at Dan and Janine’s Wedding Day

December 17th, 2012

It was full of friends, family and a LOT of happy.

On this Monday, I hope this little peek of their day brings you a lot of happy too.

Congratulations Dan and Janine.



Laura and Josh at Antrim 1844

December 12th, 2012

I first photographed at Antrim two and a half years ago with the amazingly talented Abby Jiu.  If you haven’t been to Antrim before, you will quickly discover upon your first visit that it is quite the little gem in the Maryland countryside.  I still remember Abby and I’s drive out there as we talked about being full-time photographers and how she told me she was about to make the jump.  Amidst endless cows and endless fields, I thought that was absolutely crazy.

And yet, two and a half years later, with a year jam-packed full of weddings, I stood with my own couple witnessing their marriage.  That can be summarized as this… God is SO good.

It was such an honor to walk with Laura and Josh through out this year.  Laura and Josh’s wedding was full of fun details, but their guests, their tears and the way they looked at each other was what stood out in the end.

Thank you Laura and Josh for blessing me.  It was amazing to be a part of your story this year.  I can’t wait to see what amazing things God does through your marriage.

Much love,


PS- Thanks to my sweet Nikki for helping me document this day and for standing by my side.  xoxo

So In Love

Just a peek of this sweet couple.

More of them on the blog next week.



Beautiful Things

November 27th, 2012

Mark and Kira were married at Boulder Ridge at Ski Liberty.  It was the picture perfect scene for a couple that exudes everything that is beautiful in marriage.

During their ceremony Gungor’s “Beautiful Things” was sung.  I couldn’t get enough of it then and I keep finding myself listening to it weeks later.

I am so genuinely happy for these two and I can’t wait to see all of the beautiful things that come out of their marriage.

Congratulations Mark and Kira.  Thanks for letting me in on this journey with you both.

She is gorgeous, kind, and a lot of fun to be around.  I loved her engagement session and I couldn’t help, but give a little peek at what she was like as a bride.

Stunning, graceful, joy-filled.

Happy weekend everyone.




October 8th, 2012

My husband asked me this morning “What inspires you?”  It was prompted by my longing to just stay in bed.

It is a cold and cloudy day here in DC and coming off a 12 hour wedding day…there were more than three good reasons to just stay where I was this morning.

The question launched me into thinking about that it though…”What inspires me?”

I can tell you being with this couple on their wedding day this past Saturday inspired me.  Witnessing their love…praying with them…being given the privelege to capture beautiful images, but most importantly beautiful people…It made my heart sing.

Focusing on what matters and drawing close to those things…it’s what I need to do more of and what we are all called to do.  This is how we are supposed to live…inspired.

Today I am thankful for this couple and for this opportunity.

Here’s to feeling inspired this week and congratulations to Lauren and Rick on their marriage.



“Well hello October!”

October 1st, 2012

I guess it is officially fall.  How did September sneak away so fast?  And somehow between Friday and today, the temperature has decided jeans and boots are in order?  Though I hear this change might be temporary, with it being October I am going to welcome the start of the season…pumpkin-lattes now welcome.

The past few weekends have been jam-packed with gorgeous weddings…and the weather has been amazing.  Gone are those sticky humid days of summer where I feel bad for brides and even worse for the groom.

I thought I would share a little peek of Linda’s wedding.  She kicked off the fall season right with her gorgeous purple and yellow combination.  Looking forward to sharing more of her nuptials and all of the other fun things I have been up to in the coming weeks.  I think it’s almost mini time…

Happy October!



A Beautiful Portrait

July 24th, 2012

When it comes to weddings, it is no secret to my brides that I adore capturing beautiful portraits of just them on their wedding day.

As gorgeous as “photo-journalistic” images can be, I get such a great satisfaction of showing brides just how beautiful they are through images focused directly on them.

This carries over into many aspects of my photography.  As a mom and woman, I love feeling beautiful and it means so much to me to be able to show women and girls just how beautiful they are at any point in their lives…especially on a day that is all about them.

These photos were taken of Allison as she prepared for her big day.  You were beautiful Allison.  Congratulations.
