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!

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. 


More Than Just a Job

I recently started attending a church called Lighthouse and if you follow me on my personal social media, you would know it was a long time coming. Last night’s sermon at was all about using the gift(s) God gave you which is something that has been on my heart for quite some time now. I always tell my clients that my job is more than just a job to me because I believe it is the gift God gave me. I believe capturing fleeting moments for people on such a beautiful day in their lives is my gift. I believe witnessing something that is so powerful and Holy, two becoming one, is a gift in and of itself. I am SO grateful to have been called to do this.

I am incredibly excited to get 2018 wedding season going. I still have some 2018 wedding dates available and would love to add you and your person to my list. 

ALSO, I have listed my TRAVEL DATES! I'm available for portrait sessions with no travel fees if you want to book a session while I'm in town. Don't see your city? I'd love to come hang out! 

Megan + Ruben | Brooklyn Elopement

Megan + Ruben eloped this past Thursday in non other than New York City. I can't even begin to tell you how much fun we had or how honored I was to be apart of their special, intimate day. Megan's attention to detail (check out her parents' wedding bands tied onto her bouquet), her gorgeous dress, flowers and everything else about her made my job too easy. Ruben, the officiant, their awesome friend Issac and the guys grabbed coffee the morning of while us girls had some mimosas back at the Airbnb as Megan put on her finishing touches. Without further ado, here are some shots of Megan + Ruben saying "I do" in Brooklyn Bridge Park and then running around the streets of DUMBO! 

Biggest thanks ever to Jonathan Kemp for second shooting!
