Is there anything better than colorful bridal inspiration? I don’t think so, especially right now during all of this COVID-19 bleakness. We can all use a little brightness in our lives. Almost four years ago (I can’t believe it has been that long!), I captured a fiesta-style wedding shoot at Snead’s Asparagus Farm in Fredericksburg. […]

Kerry and Sergio’s Washington, D.C. wedding was amazing, not only because of the beautiful setting and gorgeous green Kerry chose for her colors, but also because it happened right before everything shut down. The worldwide pandemic has affected us all, no matter where we are, and the wedding industry isn’t immune to that. So many […]

You’ve already found the one, so now it’s time to find THE ONE. Yes, that one, the dress one. By now, you’ve probably thought about some of the basics—long versus short, simple versus lots of bling, lace or no lace, etc, but there are tons of options out there and being in that sea of […]

Katie + Daniel | Solomons Island Wedding

I have fond memories of touring the Drum Point Lighthouse as a child, so I was super excited to head back to the area for Katie and Daniel’s Solomons Island wedding. I actually hadn’t been back since the lighthouse tour when I was very young, so I had forgotten how beautiful the area is. It’s […]

Okay, let’s be honest. Cinema may be a bit of an exaggeration when it comes to one of my favorite things about the holidays–made-for-tv Christmas movies. Yes, I’m talking Countdown to Christmas, Falalala Lifetime, Freeform (still likely known as ABC Family to most of us), UpTv. You name it, I watch it. And I start […]

Samantha and Chris had a beautiful Bandit’s Ridge wedding last month. The weather was warm, but gorgeous with bright blue sunny skies and the most perfect evening late summer, early fall light. However, maybe the most radiant thing was the huge smile Samantha had throughout the day. She was the epitome of a happy bride, […]

Sunflowers and baby bumps are the perfect combination. Snead’s Asparagus Farm was the site of Danielle’s first maternity session. It was unusually warm for January, but still had that wintery feel. It’s also the spot where we captured Noah’s six month photos and some of his other milestones so it only made sense we’d return […]

In his speech, Katie’s dad said he “loves the way Adam loves Katie” and I admit, I do too. During their wedding day at the Pavilion on Lakeland Farm, their love for each other way on full display. They laughed, occasionally cried and made their day their own, which is something I always love. From […]
