Leslie and Joe at Burke Lake Park, Fairfax Station, VA

Leslie and Joe’s engagement shoot, which took place at Burke Lake Park, presented me with a unique situation because the soon-to-be bride expressed a distinct reluctance to be in front of the camera. I was curious to see how such hesitancy would play out and was pleased to find that there was a bond between the couple that compensated for what could have been a photographer’s worst nightmare.  I had no problems shooting this couple whose connection and shared sense of humor outweighed any challenges that might be associated with a camera-shy model. I look forward to shooting their wedding.  There is a natural balance and fun loving energy between Lesley and Joe which guaranties a fun event and the images to remember it by.

Theresa and Andrew at Breaux Vinyards, Purcellville, VA

I had a chance to spend a few hours with Theresa and Andrew at Breaux Vinyards. They where an absolutely lovely couple to spend an afternoon with; granted a very hot afternoon. They demonstrated a unique ease both with one another and in front of the camera. I’m sure the bottle of wine they where leisurely enjoying set against the backdrop of a mountainside vineyard didn’t hurt, but in truth it was their innate talent and complete comfort with one another that made photographing this couple an enjoyable and fun experience. It seems apparent from just a few hours that their union will be an event that holds the same ease and intimacy; and such events are always a pleasure to be apart of.
