Billy and Katie

Last weekend, Ryan and I made our way up to snowy upstate New York for Katie and Billy’s engagement session on the beautiful campus of Cornell University. Billy went to school there and Katie spent many weekends there visiting him, so it was the perfect place to capture their relationship!
I bundled up in my warmest clothes and we made our way through the snow for their session. Despite freezing temperatures, these two made it such a fun experience!

Mike and Claire

On a cold day in January, Mike and Claire were wed at St. Peter’s Church on Capital Hill in DC surrounded by their closest friends and family. For them, having a military background meant that they had friends coming from near and far who have been a part of all different stages of Claire’s life…some were seeing her for the first time in many years as she made her way down the aisle! That fact made this day extra special for their whole family and you could sense the spirit of joy and genuine community throughout the entirety of the evening as they celebrated together at St. Francis Hall.

As soon as I caught a glimpse of the beautiful roofline and the big windows with the water in the background, I couldn’t wait to start shooting! Almost on cue, Nate and Ellie came out of the house and met me as I drove up…They are every bit as down to earth and fun as they seem in these photos!

They led me in the front door and I couldn’t wait to get to know them

Anniversary Celebration Favorites | 2014

2014 brought more laughter and adventure than I ever dreamed possible…It’s amazing just to take life step by step and then look back at the journey and all of the beauty that there was in it! From visiting the Georgia coast, to New York City, to Paris, Venice, Scotland and Germany amongst other places…it’s definitely been a year I’ll never forget! Shooting in new places breathes new life and creativity into my work like nothing else, and I definitely attribute feeling like I nailed my style this year partially to that fact!
