Sarah and Joe’s Richmond Wedding

Sarah and Joe were married at The Boathouse in Richmond, VA on a gorgeous Spring day. I had so much fun with Joe and Sarah, their bridal party and their families, and The Boathouse is definitely a venue that I look forward to visiting again. I started the day at the Marriott in Shockoe Slip (a gorgeous new hotel) documenting Sarah and Joe’s getting ready process. Before hopping on the trolly to the Boathouse, Sarah and Joe had a really quick, but incredibly fun, first look. Check out their faces! After a gorgeous ceremony overlooking the James River with the cityscape in the distance, we headed down to the docks to create some fun portraits of Sarah and Joe and their attendants. Proving once and for all the age old maxim “You’ll never know unless you ask” the bridesmaids and groomsmen talked their way onto a boat! (We may or may not have done some Leo and Kate moments–please forgive us). After a quick trip up to the roof of the Boathouse for a few more portraits, Sarah and Joe partied well into the night until their grand exit with streamers(a great alternative to sparklers if your venue prohibits them). Congratulations Joe and Sarah, and thank you for giving me the honor of being part of your wedding!


Liz and Brad

Liz and Brad were married at The Carnegie Institute for Science in Washington D.C. in early May. You might remember Liz and Brad from their gorgeous Cherry Blossom engagement session from last Spring. Check them out here. Liz and Brad chose the Carnegie because they fell in love with its grand neoclassical architecture, inside and out. As you’ll see in their photos, we made sure to incorporate that as much as possible! Liz had a first look with her father in the main entrance, and a first look with Brad down the gorgeous spiral staircase that leads into the rotunda. When Liz and Brad weren’t blotting their eyes from tears of joy, they were ear to ear smiles the whole night! Congratulations Liz and Brad!

Joy and Dan

Dan and Joy were married at Stevenson Ridge, one of my favorite venues in the State of Virginia. When I met with Joy and her mother a few months before the wedding, they both warned me that it was going to be an emotional day, and they certainly lived up to that promise! Start to finish, the day was filled with laughter, tears, and tender moments. Dan and Joy opted for a first look, and were so happy they did! I know that the first look isn’t for everyone, but for couples who are looking to enjoy their cocktail hour, and have some relaxed moments together before the ceremony, you really can’t go wrong with a first look! And, take a look at Dan’s face during the ceremony! That magic is definitely still there as Joy walks down the aisle. Congratulations Dan and Joy!


Courtenay and Alex

Courtenay and Alex were married at the Washington International School in Washington, D.C. this April on the perfect Spring Day! The wedding day was full of touching moments, heartfelt speeches, and a whole lot of fun! When I met Courtenay and Alex last year for their engagement shoot along Rock Creek Parkway they regaled me with stories of their hilarious and sweet courtship abroad. Their wedding was a true reflection of their romance, and I couldn’t have been more delighted to be a part of it! Congratulations Alex and Courtenay!


Cabin Creek

Last month I was contacted by Cabin Creek to create cover art and promotional photographs for their new EP, Goodbye Home, set to drop on July 28th. If you’re in the Fredericksburg area, join them at the Kenmore Inn for the release party on July 31st at 7:30p.m. Below are a few of the guys’ favorite shots from our quick session. You’ll have to buy the album to see the cover and the rest of the material we created. Not to mention, the music is awesome! If you need promotional photos for your band, give me a call!
