    As Featured On Modern Jewish Wedding

We went to Old Town Occoquan, VA for this engagement shoot with Kim and Travis. It was a little chilly at times, with some snow still on the ground in places and parts of the river frozen, but these two were troopers and looked great! We wanted to balance out all of the outdoor pictures so we got permission to shoot at Rockledge Mansion. The owner actually came by and opened it for us to use the inside! If you haven’t been there, you need to go.

Kim and Travis – thanks for hanging in there in the cold and I can’t wait to shoot your wedding this fall!



It was a little too shaded under this overpass. Reflector to the rescue and we had great light!


This is in the ballroom space of Rockledge Mansion. The room looked gorgeous with gold and white chairs and had great soft light coming in through the windows. This is basically the same shot with two very different exposures, but I loved them both and couldn’t post only one!

Alexandria Engagement – Eva and Ian

I’m REALLY excited to share this for a few reasons.  1. Ian and Eva are JMU Dukes.  2. They were completely laid back about their shoot.  3. They insisted on stopping for a beer AND getting a shot of them in Murphy’s. 4. They were up for a sunset/night session.

Ian and I met our freshman year at JMU where we were both in the same dorm.  Then, he joined Theta Chi and became a fraternity brother of my then future husband.  I didn’t meet Eva until I ran into them at another wedding that I happened to be second shooting last summer, but I’m pretty sure we would have had a lot of fun if we had known each other at JMU. Aside from being fun and having good taste in beer, these two are also champion Cards Against Humanity players.

They wanted to do their shoot in Old Town, because they spent a lot of time there together and Eva spent a good amount of time there while growing up in the area.

OldTown Sunset Engagement

They got a few stares while we were shooting these ones on the dock, because people walking by only saw Ian and Eva posing (I was pretty far away).  And yes, Eva is sticking her tongue out at him.  OldTown Sunset Engagement

“Look how cool this tree is! I’m gonna hang on it.”  “Please don’t. That’s not a good idea.”  Can you guess who said what? OldTown Sunset Engagement

I think their style is pretty perfectly summed up by looking at their shoes (and, who doesn’t love shoes?). OldTown Sunset Engagement OldTown Sunset Engagement

Pit stop at Murphy’s!

My favorite pictures of the night ^


If this awesome shoot wasn’t enough, I got to witness Eva’s creative bowling technique afterward.  Thanks guys – can’t wait for the wedding!
