Test Drive | Manassas National Park

Monday, July 28, 2014

Hello, Lovelies!

I recently shot a test drive with this amazing couple!  They are getting married next year and redunkulous cute, right?

They are getting married in local Catholic Church then off to a regional park… umm, awesome!  Not only will this couple have a rustic, chic wedding, they plan to incorporate antiques, a candy bar, and super heroes!  Ding-ding-ding!!  Sounds like tons of fun!

We shot just at sunset in Manassas National Park—one of my favorite places to shoot!

Mickey + Jenalyn MARRIED | Virginia and Maryland Wedding Photographer

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Hello, Lovelies!

Today, I have a sneak peek from an awesome wedding I shot recently.  Man, I just love these two!  I first met Jenalyn for just a few minutes.  After we spoke, however, I turned to my husband and said, “I have to shoot her wedding!  I really like her!!”

Jenalyn and her new husband Mickey are true gems, instead and out.  I feel lucky to have shot their amazing day.

More soon, but until then… here is some of their beautifulness to tide you over!

Nicole + Mat ENGAGED | Maryland Engagement Photographer

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Hello, Lovelies!

I’m excited to share more from my shoot with Nicole and Mat!  These two lovebirds will get married soon!  I’m so excited about shooting these lovies again!

We shot at our new property just across the Maryland line from the Leesburg outlets.  What a romantic property!  For these two, looking for long grasses and a rustic setting… well, it was perfect!

What do you think?  It is estimated that the tall building was built in 1730!

Back to Blogging! | Frederick County's Newest Wedding Photographer

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Hello, Lovelies!

I know I haven’t blogged for a while.  Life has been cray-zee, but I’m back on it!

As an example of the craziness, on Friday, we closed on a new home—a 285-year old estate!  Friday evening, I shot my first photo shoot at our new home.  Because the home was a short sale, we have some yard work ahead of us, but I can’t wait for more shoots!  The long grasses were amazing.

Here’s a sneak peek!


In the future, we plan replacing one of the original structures with a HUGE and very Frenchy pavilion—think 15-20 foot iron scroll doors, a two story nearly-300-year-old field stone fireplace, and gorgeous, huge, crystal chandeliers.  We might host weddings there.  

Sunday night, I met with a great couple about photographing their fall wedding.  I’m so excited!  These cuties are hosting a glam backyard affair.  I was excited to shoot their test drive in the same park where I held my own backyard-style wedding reception.



Tons more to come!

Navy and Lemon Maternity | Virginia Maternity Photographer

Monday, June 9, 2014

Hello, Lovelies!

Okay, so I’m starting to show.  As any of my pregnant ladies can attest, the first and most of the second trimester, you are not “cute” showing.  It’s kind of a slow transition from your “fat” pants to your yoga pants.  It’s this awkward stage between your pants being too big and maternity pants being too small.

My last pregnancy was unexpected, I tried to hide it for a long time, and I didn’t feel free to revel in my unwed-pregnancy-bloated-bliss.  This go ‘round, I’m having much more fun, exploring maternity fashion, and taking fun pictures.

So, what to wear when you are 14-weeks pregnant?  Maxi dresses rock.  Who cares if you look a little chunky.  Have fun which you hot-mama, chucky self!


I loved mixing a navy-stripe maxi dress from Target, a floral scarf from Etsy, braided flip-flops from Target, and a fun red nail polish.  I love the play on a classic red, white and blue palette by adding pink and lemon yellow.  The lemon because at 14-weeks pregnant, our “shrimp” is about the size of a lemon.
