Winter Wedding – Vienna, Virginia

Meadowlark.Atrium.Winter.Wedding_0005In December, I had the opportunity to assist and second-shoot with an incredibly talented wedding photographer named Victoria Ruan (Victoria Ruan Photography).  A lovely, and rather warm, winter day allowed us ample time outdoors to photograph the gorgeous couple’s first-look photos and portraits. The portraits were then followed by a Persian wedding ceremony (with the prettiest sofreh aghd).  The photos in this post are some of my resulting images.  Thank you so much, Victoria, for letting me work with you!  It was such a joy!

Make sure to visit Victoria’s website, blog and Facebook page to see her beautiful work!

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
