Hannah + Robert | Backyard Wedding

Where do I even begin?! I connected with Hannah thanks to, YET AGAIN, Instagram and I am beyond glad we did. I didn't meet Hannah and Robert until their wedding day, but I did get the chance to meet Hannah's incredible parents about a year before the big day. I was already so stoked for their wedding just based on walking around the property and of course, meeting Ned, their sheep. (He makes an appearance, don't you worry.)

When the day finally rolled around, it was more fun and more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Hannah looked drop dead gorgeous and Robert looked damn spiffy. Their wedding consisted of tossing out traditions and cutting a pizza instead of a cake, surprising their bridal party with some bagpipers to walk them down the aisle, butt squeezes during their first look, donuts for dessert and so much more that you'll just have to keep scrolling down to see. 

THANK YOU Hannah + Robert for allowing me to capture your big day. It was such an honor, but also such a blessing to now have you both in my life. Can't wait to hang out again soon! 

Also, biggest thanks in the whole wide world to my dear friend Cory for second shooting! Check out his stuff here! He's freaking incredible.

Katie + Josh | Pittsburgh Wedding

Katie + Josh booked me what feels like years ago so when their wedding day finally arrived, I was beyond excited to meet them. They got hitched at a beautiful barn outside of Pittsburgh surrounded by people who loved them and I was so stinking thankful to be a witness to the day. I can't wait to shoot their post-wedding session in Philly in just a few weeks! Enjoy! xx 

Biggest thank you in the world to my incredibly talented best friend, Liz Rowe, for second shooting! 

Karis + Micah | Virginia Wedding

Karis + Micah hold such a special place in my heart and it was an absolute privilege being able to shoot their big day. We met, where I meet 99 percent of the people in my life, on Instagram. Individually they're both incredible people, but together they're a dream couple. Everything about their day, from start to finish was stunning (and a photographer's dream - which makes sense! Karis is a photographer herself and you should peep her stuff here). Enough of me yacking though. Take a look at their gorgeous wedding below! Enjoy! xx

Corinn + Connor | Vegas Wedding

Dang, this wedding was absolutely stunning. From start to finish, everything was perfect. I am so beyond grateful I got the opportunity to go out to Vegas and witness this beautiful commitment. Corinn + Connor are two of the greatest people I've ever met (and their family too)! Enjoy! xx

Soraya + Mike | Engaged

These two are too cool. I absolutely loved running around Georgetown with them and popping a bottle of champagne at the end - casually - on the sidewalk. I can't wait to shoot their May wedding! Enjoy! x 

Corinn | Texas Bridal Session

Oh Lord, I've been waiting since the first weekend in December to post these photos and the time is FINALLY here! I flew to Texas in December 2016 to photograph Corinn's bridal session and just prepare for her beauty. Prepare, seriously! I'm writing this ahead of time, so when you're reading this we are already partying it up in Vegas. Enjoy her perfection below! xx

Sophia + Mika | Nashville, TN

Thank you Instagram for the one millionth time for connecting me to other bomb creatives wherever I go. I recently road tripped with my dear friend, Liz and she discovered these two babes via the gram. We linked up and explored the good old neighborhood of Germantown at sunset. Enjoy! xx 

Lily + Boaz | Washington, DC

One random night, I found myself doing the usual - searching Instagram for new, cool, DC people. That's when I came across Lily + Boaz. I reached out immediately, asking if we could hang out and take some photos one morning in Georgetown. Luckily for me, they said yes. We met up yesterday and as soon as they walked in the door, I turned into the "in love" emoji. YEP. Get ready to feast your eyes on two of the most fashionable people in the DMV. Even though it was pouring rain for majority of the shoot, these two were down to adventure which I couldn't appreciate more. I can't wait for future hangs! Follow them here: Lily + Boaz! Enjoy! xx 

The Instagram Guide to D.C - SHAW

I am SO excited to introduce a little spin on some of my fashion blogger work. I teamed up with two of my favorite ladies, Julien from itsjulien.com and Maeve from chicnowblog.com to bring you our idea of the perfect D.C Instagram guide! We first explored the wonderful neighborhood of Shaw, taking photos at the prettiest places. This project will include more neighborhoods & more of their beauty! Check out there posts - Julien's & Maeve's - to see the rest of our adventures! 

First stop: COFFEE, DUH! La Colombe in Blagden Alley - it has beautiful exposed brick, lots of natural light and is tucked away in the cutest little alley (hence the name, Blagden Alley and hence the adorable photos of Julien and Maeve below). This spot is gram'able friends. 

A few stops later: Like I said, you'll have to check out their posts to see the other sweet spots, but we ventured into the adorable streets Shaw has to offer to snap some more outfit pictures.

2016 Year In Review

2016 was by far the craziest year of my life. There were so many new friendships, new jobs, new travels, new loves, new dislikes, major life changes - and most importantly, so much self growth. And I mean self growth in my business and self growth in my personal life. I couldn't be more grateful for the year I've had. I am thankful for the good days and the bad days and everything in between. Enough chit chat though! Let's take a look at 2016 in what I do best - photos. (ps. they're in no particular order. I don't have the patience for that, hehe). 

I drank A LOT OF COFFEE. And took a lot of pictures of coffee...Like, a lot.
