PUBLISHED! Washingtonian Bride & Groom - Winter 2014

I am very honored to have Caitlin and Todd's wedding published in this winter's Washingtonian Bride & Groom Magazine!  What a joy to see such a pinkalicious wedding in that wonderful publication.  Events In The City created a beautiful event at Dumbarton House in Georgetown that reflected Caitlin and Todd perfectly.  I am delighted to finally be sharing this wedding.  This is just a little teaser, so much more loveliness to come.  Now go get your copy!

Caitlin you are stunning!

Main Street Station

I love how photography can take you places.  This image feels like it was made 100 years ago.  Actually it was yesterday...

PUBLISHED! Churrasco Party on Style Me Pretty Living!

I am delighted to share this feature that is on Style Me Pretty Living today!  My darling husband and I threw a backyard party relying heavily on his amazing culinary skills.  I styled and designed the party, a favorite pastime of mine.  It is to date one of my favorite parties that we have ever thrown and I am so glad that I photographed it!  Looking at these images fills me with joy...and hunger!  You can see the feature HERE.  Enjoy!

PUBLISHED! Cameron's Bridals on Wedding Sparrow

I am in absolute love with bridal sessions.  It's a special time when your personal style can be lavished and given the full treatment, which just does not happen on wedding days - too busy!  I so wish that all of my brides did bridals.  Here's to hoping that will change very soon!

I am incredibly honored to have Cameron's bridal session featured on the fine art blog Wedding Sparrow.  What I love about this blog is that it revolves around fine art photography.  What does that even mean!?  It means that the images on the blog look fabulous.  This blog does not show every bizarre new wedding trend, just the beautiful and chic.  

If you want to sprinkle some cyber sugar my way, feel free to leave a comment HERE!  To see my original blog post with Cameron's bridals click HERE.  Happy Friday!     

Mandy + Ruel | Sweet and Rustic Idaho Wedding | From San Francisco to Idaho

Mandy and Ruel, you two are absolutely darling!

Horse and buggy transported guests from the main house, through the field, to the barn:

Prior to the wedding Ruel had shared a bit about what the wedding design would entail.  He used to design the sets of The Bachelor, so he told me there would be a lot of candles! 

A big thank you to Style Me Pretty for publishing this wedding on their gorgeous blog!

Winter Light

Even though I am still enjoying a Virginia summer I can't help but jump ahead to winter!  There is something very exciting about a changing of the seasons.  There is a different attitude that arises.  The air smells different.  These are the top five things that I am looking forward to most:

1)  Nieman Marcus seasonal candles
2)  Wool socks
3)  Making Puppy's famous leek soup (recipe coming soon!)
4)  Brewing my own root beer, my goal being to come very close to the Australian "Bundaberg." 
5)  Christmas.  This year I am on the prowl for the best gifts for Puppy!  I tried to be clever last year and did not buy him the three items he asked for.  Not the best idea!        

Sarah + John | DC Engagements | Washington DC Wedding Photographer

In my college marriage prep class we learned that a relationship is like a bank account:    Similarities are deposits and differences are withdrawals.  If this is the case Sarah and John could retire!  We decided to shoot in the heart of DC to reflect Sarah and John's mutual love and passion of politics.  They first met on the campaign trail and have been inseparable ever since.

Thank you so much Sarah and John for having me out!  Capitol Hill never looked so romantic.  I can't wait for your wedding next month!
