Engagement Photography – Kevin and Allison in Alexandria, VA


Location and Date: Downtown Alexandria, VA | January 2016

The Details: The best time for casual photo sessions like engagement photography falls during the early morning hours and the late evening hours. This is when the light is the most soft and easiest to work with (also known as the Golden Hour). Being an early bird myself, I love getting up early and taking photographs when my clients are willing to get up early as well. Kevin and Allison were one of those couples, willing to meet me on the docks of Alexandria, Virginia shortly after 7:30 a.m. for an early morning engagement session!

Wedding Photography at the Hotel Monaco in Alexandria, VA


Location and Date: Hotel Monaco, Alexandria, VA | November 2015

The Details: Jeff and Kathleen’s wedding in 2012 was a blast to photograph…one of my favorites from that year. So when Jeff’s sister Sara contacted me to photograph her wedding, I quickly checked my calendar to see if it was open on her requested date as I did not want to miss out on having a good time with this family again. Thankfully my calendar was open and I locked in the date for Sara and Patrick. While the weather wasn’t the best, a great time was had by all, especially by the ring dog, Donnie!

Engagement Photos at Skyline Drive with Matt and Paulina


Location and Date: Shenandoah National Park | October 2015

The Details: Mid to late October is prime time for taking photographs in the mountains of the Shenandoah Valley. The leaves change into brilliant, beautiful colors and people come from all over the country to see the breathtaking landscapes that result from the colorful foliage. It is also a perfect place to have your engagement photographs taken! Matt and Paulina were lucky enough to contact me just in time to get a final spot on my calendar for their engagement photographs in this beautiful setting.

Family Portrait Photography at Shenandoah National Park with Shane and Amanda


Location and Date: Shenandoah National Park | October 2015

The Details: One of the cool things about being a wedding photographer is you get to see your client’s lives progress as the years tick by. I did Shane and Amanda’s wedding a few years ago, and did their engagement session at this exact same location back in 2011. So a few years later here we were again, but this time there was another little one tagging along for some family portrait photographs!

Engagement Photography at Shenandoah National Park with Evan and Sarah


Location and Date: Shenandoah National Park | October 2015

The Details: One of the weddings I am most looking forward to in 2016 is that of Evan and Sarah’s. Evan is the brother of Allie, whose engagement session and wedding I did in previously, and I have known Sarah for a long time from my work at LFCC. We met at Skyline Drive during the peak time for the beautiful autumn foliage and had a wonderful evening during the golden hour walking around and taking photographs.

Wedding Photography at the Cloverdale Barn in Winchester, VA


Location and Date: Cloverdale Barn, Winchester, VA | October 2015

The Details: After photographing two weddings in the rain, the weather did a 180º and blessed Tim and Lauren’s wedding day with a brisk, sunny and beautiful fall day. This was my first opportunity to photograph a wedding at the Cloverdale Barn, and I was really impressed with the setup and location of the venue. I knew Tim and Lauren would be super laid back and be a blast to work with again (see their engagement session here), so this was a perfect way to wrap up the month of October for me. I look forward to returning to the Cloverdale Barn sometime again in the near future!

Farm Wedding Photography in Westminster, MD – James and Katelyn’s Wedding


Location and Date: Rockland Breeze Farm, Westminster, MD

The Details: James is an old high school friend of mind, so when he contacted me to photograph his wedding, I was hoping my calendar would be free on that date, which it was! They got married on a farm where Katelyn grew up learning how to ride horses (a few of which were even right next door to the reception that we took some photos with). Despite some cold rain and a little wind, everything worked out and a great time was had by all!

Wedding Photography at Shadow Creek in Purcellville, VA – Tim and Sara


Location and Date: Shadow Creek Weddings and Events, Purcellville, VA | October 2015

The Details: On Tim and Sara’s wedding day the rain, rain, rain came down, down down…and never let up. It was pretty much the exact opposite of their engagement session which had perfect weather (check it out here). BUT…despite the constant down pour, Shadow Creek was an awesome venue to have the wedding in on a rainy day. Add that to the fact that everyone was in great spirits because of this awesome couple tying the knot, so it didn’t matter if it rained buckets. Nothing was going to damper this fantastic wedding and party!
