samantha + kristos | CityCenter, DC wedding

Wanting something intimate and true to themselves, Samantha and Kristos already eloped in Vegas a couple months earlier but were ready to celebrate with family in DC. They got ready together in a hotel near CityCenter and pretty much danced their way to and from their small, romantic ceremony at the Cathedral of St. Matthew in their rented limousine. We had an absolute blast grabbing portraits of their beautiful (and hilarious) bridal party under the amazing autumn leaves, the installation above Palmer Alley, and then moved on to party and eat some of the best food I've ever put in my mouth at Momofuku -- where I am pretty sure I did not stop laughing or smiling for hours.

2017 year in review | portraits + lifestyle

Yesterday I recapped the amazing weddings and couples I photographed in 2017, but I couldn’t finish a reflection on the year without sharing images from all of the portraits and lifestyle work I was able to do. I love shooting portraits just as much as I love documenting weddings and I think it’s because in all of it, photography is an honest art that documents humans as they are. It never fails to amaze me how beautiful people are when they allow their hearts to shine through their eyes and smiles and I am so grateful I have been able to document those moments and capture these gorgeous souls in an image.

2017 year in review | weddings + couples

Here is every couple that hopped in front of my camera last year. It was insanely hard to pick just a few favorites from every wedding and one from every engagement or couples shoot – I clearly have a lot more to blog from the fall wedding season and that’s coming as soon as possible. I want to share every image from every one of these weddings because I love these people so incredibly much.

katelyn + garrett | library of congress engagement

so excited to share these! Katelyn and Garrett are Baltimore people, tying the knot with a small ceremony in Annapolis in October, and suggested the Library of Congress for their engagement shoot last spring. so basically, they're incredible. if their soft kindness, quiet love, and gracious willingness to be goofy and laugh at my constant stream of babble throughout our shoot doesn't speak something about how beautiful they are inside and out -- y'all, they brought me a bag of Baltimore coffee, the "Umma" blend from Dooby's, because they know how much I love coffee and because they said it reminded them of "Emma". I LOVE THEM A LOT.
