Damon, Rebecca and Molly – Old Town Alexandria


This is Damon, Rebecca and their sweet little pup, Molly.
You might remember Rebecca…we did some headshots and portraits together last year.
She still has the best smile and laugh ever!
We all spent a gorgeous Sunday morning taking a little walk around Old Town Alexandria.
These fun photos were the result.
They are getting married in April of next year and they wanted a few photos with Molly “declaring” their wedding date.
I think she “declared” well. :)

Winery & Wedding Styled Shoot (Part I) – Katy and Marc

Stone-Tower-Winery-Leesburg-Virginia-Wedding_0065I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to take part in a styled shoot by The Style Collaborative at the stunning Stone Tower Winery in Leesburg, Virginia called ‘Berry Much in Love.’  With three incredibly lovely and photogenic couples serving as our models, we had the opportunity to visit different areas of the winery as we took our photographs.  I can’t wait to share the results of that awesome evening.  With so many photos to share, I will be presenting the images in four parts.  Part I = Katy & Marc.  What I loved most about photographing Katy and Marc was watching the way they look at each other…so sweetly and so in love.  Enjoy the following images of the ethereal Katy and Marc.Stone-Tower-Winery-Leesburg-Virginia-Wedding_0064 Stone-Tower-Winery-Leesburg-Virginia-Wedding_0062 Stone-Tower-Winery-Leesburg-Virginia-Wedding_0061 Stone-Tower-Winery-Leesburg-Virginia-Wedding_0057Stone-Tower-Winery-Leesburg-Virginia-Wedding_0060

Family-Sandbridge-Virginia Beach-Portrait_0021
These are the sweet family photos of Abby and her mom and dad, Jason and Sarah.  Abby is the niece of a good friend of mine and after hearing my friend talk about Abby’s utter adorableness, I couldn’t wait to meet her.  And she definitely didn’t disappoint! :)  A sweet, adorable and independent little bundle of energy with such kind and loving parents.  Jason, Sarah and Abby…thanks for letting me spend the evening with you guys!
