Family Portrait Photography – The Santana Family in Stephens City, VA

140228_Santana_Family_Portraits-071_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Stephens City, VA | February 2014

The Details: Whenever I do a family portrait session with babies, I never know what to expect. Each baby has its own personality…some can look serious the whole time and you have to work to make them smile. Others can be a little cranky and you have to be patient and wait for them to settle down for a nice photo opportunity. For this session with the Santana family, their baby was all smiles. In fact I think he ranks as one of the smiliest babies I have ever had the pleasure of working with!

Location and Date: Vienna, VA | February 2014

The Details: Dustin and Andrea have had a lot of excitement in their life since I photographed their wedding two years ago in Delaware. They have since moved to the DC area and recently welcomed a little of bundle of joy into the world. It was my pleasure to meet their three-week old son Waylon at their town home in Vienna  for an intimate family portrait session.

Wedding Photography – Erik and Sarah in Markham, VA

140116_Erik_and_Sarah_Wedding-590_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Ceremony – Markham United Methodist Church | Reception – Bowling Green Country Club | January 2014

The Details: January weddings are pretty rare, but even more unique are weekday weddings held in January! This has been a very cold and snowy winter, but Erik and Sarah had luck on their side as the weather was sunny and actually quite nice out for their Thursday wedding. The ceremony was held in a historic stone church in Markham, VA…one of the oldest churches in the area. After their bagpipe sendoff, we headed over to Bowling Green Country Club where some snow was still on the ground from the last weather event. That was a must to include in some of their photographs, since it was a winter wedding after all!

Wedding Photography – Robbie and Kelly at the Nancy Shepherd House

140110_Robbie_and_Kelly_Wedding-089_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Nancy Shepherd House Inn, Winchester, VA | January 2014

The Details: Robbie and Kelly are from out of town and chose to vacation to Winchester, VA and get married in an intimate private ceremony at the local favorite bed and breakfast. With only officiant David McLaughlin and myself on-hand to attend, Robbie and Kelly exchanged rings and were officially pronounced husband and wife. We spent a few minutes taking some photos in and around the Inn afterwards :)

Engagement Photography – Kris and Erica’s Snow E-Session at Blandy Farm

131212_Kris_and_Erica_Engagement-118_FINAL_large

Location and Date: The Virginia State Arboretum (Blandy Farm) | December 2013

The Details: Kris and Erica are new to the Northern Virginia area (I’m doing their wedding in northern Pennsylvania) so they asked me for some location suggestions for their engagement session. We were originally scheduled to take their photos at Shenandoah National Park, but due to the snow, the park was closed. At the last minute we decided to switch up the location to the tried and true Blandy Farm…and it turned out to be beautiful. It was cold, but the sun was out, the wind wasn’t too bad and the snow on the ground made for some very pretty photographs.

Engagement Photography – Frank and Cristina in Leesburg, VA

131122_Frank_and_Cristina_Engagement-083_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Leesburg, VA | November 2014

The Details: All of my clients have something about them that I really enjoy, and with Frank and Cristina it was their sense of humor. I am positive I spent more time laughing than taking their photographs due to how they acted with one another and the jokes they kept cracking. I enjoyed every minute of it and am really looking forward to their wedding in May!

Engagement Photography – Brad and Allie in Maurertown, VA

131114_Brad_and_Allie_Engagement-049_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Maurertown, VA | November 2013

The Details: This was my second trip to family property in Maurertown, Virginia for an engagement session in one month…and that is not a complaint but an exclamation of excitement! I love family property sessions for as I have said over and over on my website here, they give me an opportunity to photograph people in an environment usually not open to many photographers. Brad and Allie were awesome. Allie has been in or invited to at least three weddings I have done in the past, so it is quite awesome to know I will be photographing her wedding in the fall of 2014!

Engagement Photography – Tim and Lauren in Stephens City, VA

131108_Tim_and_Lauren_Engagement-105_FINAL_large

Location and Date: Family Property, Stephens City, VA | November 2013

The Details: I have the opportunity to photograph at all types of venues and locations…and each has its own specific charm. However each time I do an engagement session and the couple tells me they would like to do it on family property, I become energized as I know I am going to have access to a spot that no other photographers normally would. Tim and Lauren wanted to do their engagement session in family-owned property in the wooded area of Stephens City, and it…was…awesome. The woods always makes for great photography as each area has its own character and charm.
