I shot the wedding of Nick and Michelle at Saint Peter and Paul’s in Potomac followed by a reception at the Sheraton Tyson’s. This was a very special and personal wedding for me as I have known Nick since he was a teenager. His parents are some of our dearest friends. I remember meeting Michelle for the first time and hoping Nick would “play his cards right.” She is a beautiful, sophisticated, smart, funny, and charming young lady. (Very much like Nick’s sister and Mom). I was honored that they allowed me to capture all the love, joy, shenanigans, and fun of the day. It was a spectacular event.
I shot the wedding of Jessica and Graydon at Rocklands Farm Winery and Market in Poolesville, MD. What can I say? Amazing couple! Amazing location! The farm was extremely picturesque and Jess and Graydon enjoyed every moment with family and friends. A wonderful event!
The Pruette sisters, Jessica and Jenny, were married to Joe Crawford and Kyle Armeny and I was lucky enough to photograph both events. Now they both have started families and I am again fortunate to photograph the clan together. We met at an old farm in Derwood, MD and with a lot of cajoling, convincing, and a little bribery we got some great images. I look forward to photographing these kids for years to come.
I shot an engagement session with Kathleen and Steven in Old Town Alexandria, VA. They had scouted a few locations to prep for the shoot which turned out to be a fantastic idea. I discovered some hidden gems!
I shot the wedding of Kelly and Andrew at The Vineyards and Winery at Lost Creek in Leesburg, Virginia. We had to deal with some soggy weather but it did not dampen the spirits of this wonderful couple. We started with a funny, yet touching, “First Look” moment that set the tone for the day. These two shared many moments of laughter and joy through the night. I must also mention an emotional speech by the groom’s brother. Great stuff.
Ty Clifton retired from the US Army after 25 years and I was honored that he asked me to photograph the event. It was held in Henderson Hall on Fort Myer in Arlington, VA. The Army really knows how to put on a show! It was very theatrical and visually spectacular with a large dose of tradition and honor. I cannot thank Ty enough for his service.
I shot the wedding of Renee and Andrew at Belmont Country Club in Ashburn, VA. Despite the threat of rain and some cold weather we went ahead with an outdoor ceremony. Belmont is a fantastic location for a wedding in Northern Virginia.
This year I have been shooting a lot more babies, which I love! I spent a few hours with Chase (and his Mom and Dad), and we created some wonderful images. I am scheduled to shoot him again in a few months. I can’t wait!
I shot the wedding of Christi and Hayden at St. Francis Episcopal Church in Great Falls, VA. followed by a reception at their home in Sterling, VA. I have had a few of these smaller more intimate weddings lately and I really enjoy them. The images below show how crowded the house was but I also hope they show how much love was shared with family and friends.
I shot the engagement photography for Jessica and Graydon in Annapolis, MD. Jessica and Graydon are ridiculous! They are ridiculous easy to shoot. They are ridiculous nice. They are ridiculous fun to be around. They are ridiculous good looking. They are a ridiculous sweet couple and I cannot wait to shoot their wedding this summer!
