Mickayla + Griffin | Sky Meadows State Park Elopement

This blog post is an exciting one. This past weekend my dear friend Sarah, the babe who runs Sarah Brookhart Photography, and myself hosted our very first workshop, The Meraki Workshop. Meraki means putting your entire heart and soul into something which is exactly how Sarah and I both run our businesses. It was truly an honor and privilege to work alongside her teaching six awesome women some tricks of the trade. We rented a sweet Airbnb just a block from Union Market (yummy food galore) and lucked out with some of the best weather we've had in months. While majority of the weekend we covered important topics like branding, SEO + more, we also had two styled shoots up our sleeves. The first being Saturday evening's: a boho styled elopement at Sky Meadows State Park in Virginia and the second being Sunday morning's: a cozy in-home session in a beautiful Breather space. 

Mickayla + Griffin, our gorgeous couple for the evening, drove all the way from Pittsburgh (what, right? they're the sweetest!) and didn't at all mind having six cameras in their face. They were such troopers running around and getting in and out of poses for all these crazy photographers. Mickayla wore a beautiful flower crown made by the babes at Ash to Oak Floral Artistry and had a stunning bouquet to match. And the biggest thanks to Kristin Mastrangeo for putting her makeup goddess touch on Mickayla, naturally beautiful, but super stunning with the boho inspired look Kristin came up with! 

The rolling hills of Sky Meadows State Park made the perfect backdrop for this bohemian golden hour sunset. I'm so grateful to everyone who made this weekend possible, my partner in workshop crime Sarah and the ladies who attended. I can hardly wait to see everyone's photos from the weekend and can't wait to share in a future blog post Sunday's snuggly images. 

Now that I've written a book, scroll and enjoy!

Kayla + Jerry | The City Club of Washington Wedding

Kayla + Jerry were my first wedding of the season and they kicked it off right. They got married this past Saturday at The City Club of Washington - a stunning venue might I add. They were so laid back, excited to marry each other and partied the night away with their family + friends. I'm so grateful we got to work together! Check out their D.C inspired wedding below! 

Biggest thanks to Jonathan for working with me!

Cara + Kevin | Cape Henlopen State Park Engagement Session

Boy oh boy did I have fun with these two! Cara + Kevin are such a fun couple and I couldn't stop smiling behind my camera the entire time. We ran on the dunes and around the beach at Cape Henlopen State Park to capture their beautiful love and awesome personalities. I am so excited to shoot their D.C wedding this November! Check out all the fun we had below.

Maria + Addy | In Home Mom's Session

I'm sure by now we've all seen countless in-home couple's sessions and I'm a big fan of them but I was so excited when Maria asked me to come up to New York and photograph an in-home mom session! How cute are they?! So thankful I got to capture these sweet moments.
