Stephanie + Kyle | Corolla Engagements

In Corolla on literally THE windiest day we’ve had in so long, I got to meet Stephanie & Kyle for their engagement session and we totally braved it together! This part of the island is really narrow and the beach AND sound were both like wind tunnels whipping us around and we totally made the…

Up at 4:30 A.M. | Salt Air Entrepreneur

I know people who would shudder at this blog title, HA! But they are also the night owls who outdo me in staying up late. What do you MEAN you were up until 11pm!?!? LOL! I can’t even. I used to be a night owl and after Cammy started elementary school – we had to…

Sarah + Brian | Cousiac Manor Wedding

WHEW! This was one of those absolutely heartwarming wedding days where everyone in attendance is just so incredibly HAPPY to be there. From baby Ellie stealing the show (everyone is obsessed with her sweet disposition, her cheeks, her contagious smile) to the fact that Sarah and Brian are a perfect fit and so kind and…

Lauren + Nick | Nags Head Engagements

I know both of these wonderful humans from back home…one because he’s my cousin’s cousin and the other because she grew up on the same street as me 🙂 And together? They are SO incredibly sweet…the one thing I kept noticing and totally loving was how they kind of smile the same which is what…

Holly + Tyler | Occoquan Engagements

I pulled into the little town where I once spent a day SO long ago with friends and instantly felt the warmth and charm again…Occoquan is SUCH a gem located in Northern Virginia and when I saw these two lovebirds walking down the street toward me, I was JUST a little excited and even yelped…

Kayla + Matt | Rust Manor House Wedding

We started down a charming and secluded dirt road toward the venue, kind of knowing what to expect from pictures but seeing it in person was something else… I LOVED the charm of the Rust Manor House and then my heart skipped a happy little beat when I found out where Kayla was tucked away…

Hannah + Matt | Barns of Kanak Prince George Wedding

Where do we begin? Hannah and Matt are something else. Pulling into this drive with the most beautiful lawn and various barns welcoming you on to the property with the sun beaming brightly on a day where rain was expected was a great start for this day. I was already happy shooting pictures of the…

Kirstyn + Fam | Avon Hatteras Family Session

This girl Kirstyn and I…we go WAY back 🙂 And Andy. That’s because I was fortunate enough to be their wedding photographer when I was pregnant with Ellie and I will never forget falling in love with these people. They are charismatic, hilarious and full of LIFE. They’ve been through so much together and now…

Jaclyn + Daniel | Corolla Wedding

This sweet pair…you KNOW it’s going to be good when the groom has the most endearing tears in his eyes as his almost-wife is heading down the aisle! WHEW! We were losing it, Mike and I kept looking at each other saying “yay! He’s crying!” LOL! Because we love that. We know you don’t need…

Courtney + Will | Alexandria Engagements

This was TOO GOOD!!! I mean we’re not just talking the golden light, the setting, the wide open aperture shots that make my heart sing…it’s all combined with a really gorgeous couple that knows how to play and flirt like pros, which is my personal favorite, because Mike will tell you to this day I…

Nora + Family | Corolla Family Session

These three!!! The biggest feeling I walked away with from this session was, gosh…these two are SO happy to parents!! I always feel like it’s such an honor to work with loving parents. In seven years I’ve seen and experienced a lot and there is nothing like two people are so happy that they’ve started…

Lauren + Ryan | Old Town Alexandria Maternity

Last year I was standing REALLY close to Mike on the beach in Delaware while he carried an umbrella to cover me and my Mark III and 70-200 during an epic and inspiring rainy beach ceremony in Dewey Beach. Lauren and Ryan were married, everyone was more than happy to be on that rainy beach…
