Jenny & David’s Engagement Shoot

I have privilege of working with a fabulous couple on their November 2014 wedding. Even in the short time we have been working together, I have been so impressed by their thoughtfulness — both to others and to each other. They are a joy to work with and I am so excited for their Big Day! Here are some beautiful shots of their engagement — featured on United With Love — and taken by the talented Dani P. S. Photography.

Best wishes and congratulations Jenny and David!

Beautiful Fall Wedding at Holy Trinity and Old Ebbitt Grill

Photographed beautifully by Currie Fitzhugh, Xan and Matt’s wedding was a beautiful event!  They got ready at the Willard, had the ceremony at Holy Trinity, and the reception took place at the rooftop and Atrium of Old Ebbitt. I adored working with them and their wonderful families and wish them all the best! Check out the wedding on Currie’s blog.

A Beautiful Decatur House Wedding

I had such an amazing time working with a special couple on their Fall wedding at Decatur House in Washington, DC. Danielle and Jason did an incredible job in thinking thoughtfully through all of the details of their wedding. I especially loved their “getaway” after the ceremony on a tandem bike! They even gave bike bells to each guest to ring while they peddled away. So cool!

Congratulations, Danielle and Jason! Thank you for allowing me to be part of your special day!

Baby’s Breath – A New Take

No longer just a sprig pinned into an updo, baby’s breath holds its own as a statement centerpiece in these images. Mixed with mercury glass and silver tones, it goes from  simple and sweet to bold and elegant. It doesn’t hurt that baby’s breath represents everlasting love.
