I could tell you some other superficial things about myself— I love dark chocolate and red wine, I love DC for it’s grand architecture and rich history, I have a husband I adore, a strong marriage, a darling baby girl, a quaint old brick home, and a love for strong coffee & a good book. 

But if you really want to know me, here are a few things that matter:

I never get tired of weddings.
I tear up at almost every first kiss.
I think pretty & styled is nice, but real life is beautiful. 
I would rather cook for a friend than buy a meal out.
I care more about having a beautiful soul than a perfect body.
I cherish every lingering morning, and end every night with a kiss. 
I believe marriage is one of the greatest earthly gifts anyone can receive.
I believe in telling your story, not my own version of it.

She knows her own mind […]

And my goodness, I’ve spent some beautiful mornings and evenings around this city with some amazing couples! Preparing for this blog post […]

These two were married in Chicago in November. We didn’t have a chance to do an engagement session beforehand, so we decided on an anniversary session in the spring instead. Helllooooo, cherry blossoms! There’s something so sweet about familiar love. I love how comfortable these two are together, and how they seem to melt into each other. […]

I’m blogging my “Year in Review: Best of Portraits” from the National Portrait Gallery. I love that I live close enough to the Smithsonian to take my laptop and a few notebooks, and take a bit of time to be quiet at the start of this first workweek of the new year. Looking back over […]

I have so much gratitude and love for friends who are also photographers. They are the people who keep me sane, who let me verbally process, who get both the joys and the unique struggles of this industry. Abby is one such friend. We swapped head shot sessions a few weeks ago, as both of us were in […]
