Nick and Jess

They share a mutual and deep love for life at the “Rivah”…the term refers to the area on the middle peninsula of Virginia, but is really more of a lifestyle than a place. It’s the laid-back vibe that somehow makes all of the worries of work from the week melt away and it’s where some of Nick and Jess’s favorite memories have been made. Her parents own the sweetest little house with an amazing pier and a little sandy area where Nick asked Jess to be his wife…

Mike and Wendy

Mike and Wendy said their vows and celebrated their new marriage at the beautiful Hendry House in Arlington…it feels like a little oasis in the middle of the city with all the greenery surrounding a quaint craftsman cottage. In spite of the forecast calling for rain, it was beautiful all day!

Zach and Ashley

On the morning of her wedding, I walked into Ashley’s parents home where she and all of her gorgeous bridesmaids were preparing for the day and immediately felt the excitement building…the part of the day when the bride is getting ready is always my favorite, but somehow the fact that there were so many girls there ready to celebrate Ashley and her soon to be husband made it even more exciting!

Ryan and Allie

When Allie visited the Four Seasons in Baltimore for the first time…she knew right away that this was the right place for their wedding! She fell in love with the deck that overlooks the Inner Harbor and the beautiful ballroom with big windows that let the natural light pour in well into the evening…it’s easy to see why she chose this as the place for her and Ryan to celebrate their marriage!

Andy and Lauren

You may remember Andy and Lauren from their beautiful Duke University engagement session last spring…I’d been looking forward to their wedding day ever since! Not just because they are an absolutely gorgeous couple and I knew their wedding was going to be beautiful to photograph, but because they are a military couple so they had to spend much of their engagement apart! I was so excited for them when the big day finally came…
