Angi and Zeb are honestly two of the most genuine people I've ever met. Their love is so obvious and it was such a joy to photograph them on their wedding day in Fargo. Their wedding party and family was a whole lot of fun too! Congrats to the lovely couple!
Sydney and Nav were married at beautiful Birch Hill in Fairbanks, Alaska this spring. It was the perfect day filled with love, joy and lots of dancing! Enjoy a few favorites below.
I was so excited to meet Stephanie and Adam in my home state of ND. The day of their engagement session was a chilly one so we were glad to be able to shoot their engagement session at Plains Art Museum before we ventured outside. The outdoor portraits were taken at Island Park in Fargo, ND. They were troopers as we went from one location to the next with warm-up's in between every few shots. This sweet duo got engaged on Christmas Eve and will be married this fall. Congrats to the lovely couple!
I first met Doug and Julie by chance. A total moment of serendipity in our nations capitol. While shooting an engagement session for another couple we happened to notice something very interesting happening behind us! Doug was down on one knee proposing to Julie. It was a beautiful moment and I couldn't resist snapping a few pictures. I was so honored when they asked me a few months later to photograph their wedding! Of course, how could I not?! Doug and Julie's wedding took place in the backyard of Julie's parent's home in Colonial Beach, VA. And I am using the word backyard loosely because what it really is, is a beautiful display of amazing design and decorating talent! The entire waterfront home and property is decorated in a nautical and beach theme - and it's totally whimsical and lovely. Julie is quite the DIY'er and designed and created the majority of the wedding decor herself. From the floral arrangements down to the chalk art and handwritten table numbers, it was a bride's backyard wedding dream! I hope you enjoy this glimpse back into Julie and Doug's wonderful day. Congrats again Doug and Julie! I know the two of you will have a beautiful life together full of joy and laughter! XOXO

I am so excited to post this beautiful wedding. I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph Kelsey and Sean on their wedding day at their home in Florida. In the shade of the beautiful backyard trees, they exchanged their vows in front of friends and family before celebrating under a big white tent in their backyard under the stars. Congrats to the lovely couple!
During my short time in DC, I came across a styled photo shoot taking place in Fredericksburg, VA at the beautiful Belvedere Plantation and I jumped at the chance to participate. The wonderful gals that organized the shoot did all the leg work and all I had to do was show up with my camera gear and a comfortable pair of shoes! As soon as we arrived, we learned that we would have the chance to shoot at five different locations. I had a blast and the stations were lovely. The photos below were from the "House" location and feature the beautiful Giovanna. Check back later for more from the styled shoot that includes a barn session, details of a beautiful dessert and cake station and much more!
