Jonathan and I photographed Matt + Morgan's engagement session on Sunday evening in Georgetown and it was a whole lot of fun! Our cheeks genuinely hurt from laughing and smiling so much with these two. We lucked out with no rain after a day full of a 90% chance of rain forecast and I'm SO glad it worked out! We cannot wait to photograph their May wedding next year! Scroll for their adorableness!
Natasha + Nate were our hot models for our second styled session at The Meraki Workshop a few weekends ago. In-home sessions are super trendy right now and for good reason. They're fun, snuggly and require a lot of connection between the photographer + couple. They generate really intimate imagery which is some of my favorite.
Sarah + I instructed for a couple of hours in this freaking beautiful Breather space in Georgetown. In case you don't know what Breather is, it's basically Airbnb for co-working spaces at an affordable rate, but they're also incredible for photo shoots. If you're interested in trying Breather out use my code to get $45 off your first booking! For some spaces that's MORE than it costs! (Code: 9CCXW8)
After we instructed, we walked to the next room to photograph Natasha + Nate snuggling in front of a bunch of cameras. They were awesome and super willing to do anything (including the airplane which you'll see below.) We lucked out with perfect weather Saturday and rainy weather Sunday which was actually great to set the mood.
Sarah + I are so grateful we were able to host a full weekend of fun, community + get tons of great photos in the process. We met last week and are already planning the next one! Whoop whoop! I can't say that this time last year I would have thought I'd be teaching + hosting a workshop, but I love being able to share what I've learned with others who are so driven to succeed in their craft.

While I love (love, love, love) shooting weddings...my journey of photography started way back in the day when I would shoot portraits of anyone who would let me take their picture. Now I am lucky enough to have the honor and privilege of photographing people during different chapters of their lives. Chloe + Chris have their first baby on the way, due in July, and I couldn't be more excited for them. From the short 30 minute session we had together and our email exchanges, I can already tell they're going to be amazing parents.
We hung out at Burke Lake Park in Fairfax this past Saturday evening when the weather was phenomenal to capture the love they have for one another and for the little bean growing in Chloe's belly. I am so grateful to have met Chloe + Chris and to have had the chance to photograph the last remaining days of just the two of them before their lives are changed forever.
Scroll for adorable smiles + happy parents-to-be! Oh and their adorable pup, Ginger!
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!
