Nothing could stop Cameron and Lauren from having the wedding of their dreams! Though their engagement and newlywed life looked different than they planned, they still were able to celebrate their marriage with all their friends and family by their side. Last spring, Cam and Lauren officially became husband and wife at an intimate ceremony […]

Cameron + Lauren | A Spring Wedding at Anchor Inn

Weddings

It is a small world after all! I met Erich and Amy for their anniversary session last night and before the night was over, we realized that we had actually been to the same wedding and didn’t even know it! They were invited as friends of the bride and we were as friends of the […]

The Eisenbeisers | A Maryland Anniversary Session

Families, Portraits

If you love blue eyed baby boys, this is the blog post for you. Andrea and Alex welcomed little Rex into their family back in August and he has gotten cuter by the day. They weren’t able to have family photos taken up until now because of the pandemic, so this shoot was extra special. […]

The MacDonalds | A Kensington Family

Families, Portraits

I feel like typing anything before these photos is just unfair because nothing can fully prepare you for the magic that is coming! Earlier this week I got to hang out with Andrew and Chelsea for their engagement photos and it couldn’t have been more magical. They chose one of my favorite locations in Southern […]

Obsessed is an understatement!!! Nick and Taylor are the cutest, goofiest, happiest couple ever! I loved getting to photograph them this week for their engagement session. They learned everything so quickly and were so effortless in front of the camera. I can’t believe I have to wait until NEXT JUNE to photograph them again. That […]

A Family on the National Mall

Families, Portraits

I will never get tired of photographing grad photos at UMD! I can’t believe it’s been five years since my first paying photography gig (shout out to my RA friend Nicole for that by the way!). Five years ago I got $30 for a set of grad photos and it rocked my world. Someone would […]

Portraits, Seniors

Wedding season has begun! After a nice long maternity leave, it felt sooooo good to kick off my 2021 wedding season with Kimmie and Bradley’s special day at Springfield Manor Winery and Brewery. Friday was one of the windiest wedding days I’ve ever photographed and it seemed like the weather couldn’t make up it’s mind […]

Bradley + Kimmie | A Blush and Gold Wedding at Springfield Manor Winery

Weddings

My favorite part of a session is getting home and culling through the images to see what kind of magic I captured. After last night’s session, I KNEW it was going to be hard to narrow them down for the gallery. The Bloyers could not be a cuter family! Aaron and Taylor welcomed their second […]

The Bloyers | A Family at North Point State Park

Every single time my alarm goes off for a sunrise session in our nation’s capital, I know it is going to be worth the early wake up call. I always capture some of my favorite images from each year in DC! Thursday’s session with Alec and Katie was no exception. I was extra excited for […]
