Waking up early for an engagement session as pretty as this is not a problem! I loved walking around the Tidal Basin with Ryann and Andrew this week taking their engagement photos.

A Washington, D.C. Tidal Basin Engagement Session Ryann and Andrew

It was a chilly, I mean a FREEZING day for this engagement session. We were taking photos in 30 degree weather! We thought it was going to at least be 40 degrees, but that didn’t happen. However what did happen is that this awesome couple still managed to look comfortable, and happy during the entire […]

A Historic Downtown Staunton and Stuarts Draft Engagement Session

It was wonderful to be back at Sorella Farms again this year. It is one of my favorites venues. The staff at Sorella are so helpful, and organized. The farm itself is gorgeous for photos. I don’t think there’s a spot that isn’t picture perfect! You might remember this couple, Ashley and Ben, from their […]
